Home again, home again, jiggity-jig

We didn't wind up going to the movie. Mom, my sister, and I went out shopping at Michael's, a grocery store, and a make-up salon called Ulta. I bought some Bare Minerals foundation -- the start-up kit, since I have no idea how to use the stuff. Kit comes with 2 jars of foundation, a jar of something called "warmth," three brushes, and a DVD explaining how to apply it.

Shortly after waking up and getting my coffee on the 27th (while I was writing the last post, actually), I noticed I had a scratchy throat. After shopping I came home and uncharacteristically took a nap. Woke up feeling worse. Got to use my Snuggee for the first time, 'cause I was having chills. Managed to make it through dinner, took some cold medicine and went back to bed.

We headed home the next day after brunch. I've been in my jammies, bundled up on the sofa with the TV on and the cat purring in my ear ever since I got home. I felt well enough today to go out and buy stuff for the little "party of one" I throw on New Year's Eve, but as soon as I got home I changed back into pajamas. I'm almost all right, except for an occasional chesty cough.

Now I'm gonna post this, log off, and curl up with the cat. Maybe I'll watch some of the stuff on my DVR. It's 58% full now.

What do you do for your party of one on New Year's? I have never been a fan of New Year's, and I struggle with whether I can just go to bed at 10 and ignore it, or if I will regret that.

I am sorry you are sick.

It tends to be cheese and crackers, veggies, other little munchies, and some sparkling cider or grape juice to toast the new year.

We haven't celebrated the new year in years. My daughter is old enough that I might let her stretch to midnight tonight, but only if she thinks of it herself. I ain't offering.

Just Me said...

Oh, duh.

I hope you're feeling better soon, too.

Chesty cough: "huffices." That's today's word. the one from my prior post was "cloge."

The Nike+ only works on the iPod Nano and iTouch. Now there are a couple of other contraptions that it works with as well, if you don't have the right iPod.

Oh, and I don't "run" either, I walk...after I drop many pounds, maybe a slight jog.
