Tis the season, again.

 Well, I got the stomach flu yesterday. Or maybe it was a bout of food poisoning. It's hard to know for sure. All I know is, I don't like this time of year. I used to love Christmas and the whole month of December. Now I wish I could just skip it. So far, I'm the only one who has gotten sick, but I feel very weak and I am still barely eating, and we have Cody's hockey game tonight. Honestly, I would like to stay home, but I can't because Mike has to run the gate, which means there will be nobody to help Cody dress in all his equipment. So I have to either come and run the gate with both the other boys in tow, or I have to try to dress Cody on my own. Sounds easy? Well, I have never been a hockey mom before. I had no idea how much equipment there was, or that there is a picky order to putting it on. I don't want to sit through the game with two bratty boys. They are not brats, but at the game they might be. They were last time, and I am simply too exhausted to deal with it this time around. Not sure whether I should run the gate and then leave, or what. On top of that, it means I will not be able to eat before we go. Not without serious risk of consequences, and I am hungry already. I don't know what I can eat. All I've had today is some soda crackers and two pieces of toast. Oh, and part of a bowl of Rice Krispies.

So it looks like I will not do any Christmas baking at all this year, at least not on time for Christmas. I don't really care. I'm more worried that people will be annoyed at me at the gatherings we are going to. Oh well. I can't do anything about it now.

I guess I don't have much more to say. Today was supposed to be the day I cleaned my house before all the Christmas gatherings, but I did not. Mostly I rested, as I am still feeling so weak. At least we are not hosting, but I really wanted it to be nice in here. Maybe tomorrow morning we'll get something done. This is truly pathetic. I hope I will have a good report to give after Christmas.
