Its been bitter cold here but its supposed to end in a few days. I ventured out yesterday and had lunch with a friend, ran some errands and managed to pick up a sore throat somewhere. The meds I am on lower your immune system and I had forgotten that. I don't recall being near anyone who was sick so I don't know how I got it. It is annoying to say the least. So today I didn't even get dressed and slept most of the afternoon away, I am sure I needed it.
After seeing these wonderful lists on a few blogs like Kim and Sherry I thought I would try one of my own. Just a list of things you like about the holidays, a focus on the positive.
