On Thursday evening/Friday morning, I got sick. On Saturday, I felt a little better, so we started prepping for Christmas. I spent something like 20 hours in the kitchen this weekend, baking cookies & jam tarts for work friends. The marathon baking session was broken up by sleep (of course), but also by some other Christmassy stuff – getting a tree, putting lights up around the house, etc. Then on Monday morning I got sick all over again. Not. Awesome.

But this is what happens when I spend all weekend hovering between sicknesses and prepping for Christmas:

I feel like that really should have been my Christmas card this year.
