Remember my trip to the walk-in clinic for a shot and some antibiotics the weekend before last? Well, my "little" sinus infection just rolled right over that stuff (laughed at it actually). By Monday my voice was down to a croak and my temperature up to a bad joke. I wound up going to my regular doctor for stronger antibiotics and missing two days of work (he ordered me to stay home). Approximately ten days and 2,364 tissues later, I am finally starting to feel better. Yeesh. I suppose the blessing is I only managed to ruin my birthday and not Christmas (wouldn't that have been a bummer? ;o) Please accept my apologies for not responding to comments left on the last post (you all know that is not my standard M.O.). We're now out for the Christmas break (and anyone that thinks teachers and faculty are "lucky" to have such great vacations I can only say it is soooo earned). School dismissed early Friday, and after peeling a bajillion hyperactive elementarians off the ceiling to board the buses [or get in cars], we all went home to stare at the wall; too fried to do anything else. Hopefully, I can play some major catch up this week starting with a tree (and I'd better get a move on, don't you think? *rolls eyes*).
I did get a chance to catch up on some movies I wanted to watch; most of which I'd discovered in sale bins over the past few months. Since I was temporarily relegated to couch detail, it was as good a time as any to play catch up. I made one $15.49 splurge on the movie "Tangled", have you seen it? My interest was [big surprise] in the horse Maximus, who, in my opinion, totally made the movie. I had to turn it off a couple of times because I was laughing so hard it was causing me to cough like crazy. Although we have a Maximus (a.k.a. Mad Max) he was nothing like our boy at all. No, the Maximus in the movie was a dead ringer for none other than our Bella. Mad face and all. DD and I decided that this movie was a total case of art imitating life; and have our suspicions that Bella may have acted as an outside Hollywood consultant regarding Maximus's character.
Allow me to clarify via photographic evidence. First, Exhibit A:
And now, I offer you Exhibit B:
Need I say more?
As always, thanks for reading this far ;o) Have a blessed week everyone, and be sure to remember the real reason for the Christmas season: Jesus.
