christmas break...

sorta. a four day weekend has got to count for something. i'm off friday, saturday, sunday, and monday. granted i have something planned every day but that's okay. i mean, why can't everyone have a christmas break. or even a mini summer one. i don't need three months... just a teeny tiny break!

done with christmas shopping. everything is wrapped! next major feat is grocery shopping and then cooking. why oh why did i cave to having christmas... cuz, i'm a good wife, right nicholas?! ;o)

bubble gut is better. might change in the next few weeks. will have some exciting news to share. soon. and sorry to disappoint it's not a baby.

and seriously... love my hubby. but what is it with him trying to keep things cold in the garage. first the ham, now the eggnog from oberweis. it's flippin 50 degrees outside, so not the way to go!


bubble gut.

i'm totally sure everyone knows what this is. there terrible, awful feeling in the pit of your stomach sometimes accompanied by a not so pleasant experience. anywho. my friends and i constantly joke about it. if we're upset, we have bubble gut. our friend's dad even tells his wife she's giving him gas at times. so funny but i digress.
so bubble gut has become a constant theme in my tummy. not fun. but not technically a bubble... just like to call it that. a constant dull ache that will not budge. ugh.
sick since monday. couldn't eat tuesday which made it even worse. after long thought with coworkers and my grandma, i think it's an ulcer. and being the good nurse that i am i did not see a doctor.
started on some lovely medicine courtesy of one of my docs nabbing them from a neighboring family md. score. feeling better. not yet normal. if i'm not back to myself by monday i'm totally going to make an appointment to see my real doctor!
don't do stress well. never have. as a kid my mom would always have to give me meds to settle my stomach and all that fun stuff. so the building stress has me freaked out and my body does not like it... i've slept from the minute i've gotten home to when i have to get up for work. my husband has been a doll. love him more by the second.
took care of everything with the painters, bless him. even put up and decorated the tree. but i guess since we are having his family over for christmas he totally should help.

admist all the craziness we have accomplished:
-being preapproved for our construction loan so it appears that things are a go. just hafta figure out what is going to go on with our home...
-setting up an appointment for our lot loan saturday. hope to have that before christmas.
-having our drywall repairs painted. doesn't match the original. nice. but it's still done and close... thank goodness for grandmas who volunteer to sit at your house for 10 hours!
-started christmas shopping.
-picked an outfit for his work party tomorrow night. total feat for me. might be a bad patient and even drink some alcohol which is a no no in ulcerland.
still have to:
-to bake at least 10 dozen cookies.
- attend my work party next friday and a trip to indianapolis that saturday for his dad's side christmas.
-get ready to host christmas for his mom's side of the family!

ahh, is it january yet?!
