I got sick overnight so couldn’t go shopping this morning. I tried, but I was just too exhausted from the stomach flu, round 2. Tonight I’m feeling much better, but tired. I’m hoping the morning dawns with me feeling my usual perky self.
It has been many years since I’ve not gone out the day after Christmas shopping. I tried. I drove to Paducah, about 30 minutes away, and by the time I got there I was so tired I had to sit in the car for about 40 minutes before I could even go inside, where I bought nothing.
I went to another store and I bought some wrapping paper and one ornament. Not much of a haul for the day after, but it just couldn’t be helped. Maybe there will be goodies left for me when I get my next chance to shop. Or maybe this is the universe’s way of telling me I have too much Christmas stuff. Hmmm… nope… that can’t possibly be it. However, I can only assume there was nothing there I desperately needed.
I’ve spent the rest of the time since I woke up trying to disinfect anything I might have touched so no one else gets sick. I hate it that I was around everyone on Christmas Day and could have given them the flu before realizing I had it. I was so hoping I would escape this, but it was not to be. Fortunately, no one else shows any symptoms yet. I hope that continues. I will feel just awful if someone else gets sick.
