What a bizarre week. I’m sick again. What I thought was just a super-long-time lingering cold turned out to be some crazy virus, It’s just been sitting in my chest, causing me to have awful coughing fits at random intervals throughout the day, with so much fatigue. It was starting to weigh on me emotionally. Like being sick was the new normal. I felt a lot better (mentally) when I heard that my dad was sick with the exact same thing. At least I wasn’t going to be perpetually ill for the rest of my life, right? 

Aside from the sicky stuff, this was a great week.

I’m glad today is Sunday — I’m going to do some more resting and crafting. It is December 1st, which officially marks the kick-off of my December Daily album and 30 Days of Lists. Making time to work on these two projects every day is at the top of my priority list this year and I’m really looking forward to the rest of the holiday season.

What was the highlight of your week?

Follow along as I tell my story and inspire you to do the same.

    The highlight of my week?? The holiday extravaganza! We had a really hard week because we had to let one of our dogs go to doggie-heaven on monday. So it was a sad week filled with memories. The holiday extravaganza gave me a good excuse to go on a craft-binge and forget about everything…

    Highlight of my week would be my 6 year anniversary. Hubby and I went out to dinner with the little two, nothing flash just the local, but I think that is what I love most about my man, he knows I would prefer local and simple than flash and travel haha! I not long got over a cold as well, so I feel your pain you poor girl! We are heading into Summer here, so I felt even worse, hot and blocked/runny nose.

    Hope you get better soon and I look forward to your inspiration with your DD.
