Another Quiet Weekend

We didn't do alot again this weekend as I am still under the weather. I have bronchitis and its exasperated by my asthma. So I am wheezing and coughing alot. I am a bit better since taking antibiotics and a round of steroids, but my Nebulizer is on its last leg and I still need it to be in working order. There isn't a place to get a Nebulizer on the weekend so I will see about it in the morning.

Jamie has enjoyed looking at the pictures and short videos from our trip to Orlando. My mom and I took her to see "A Once Upon a Time" production at our local dinner theatre on Friday. Although the costumes and props were sadly lacking (especially compared to the Disney extravaganzas we saw a couple weeks ago), they had some audience participation and they picked Jamie for part of the straw house for the 3 Little Pigs. She was eager to be picked so it was great that she got the chance to go up on stage.

We also took her for her first haircut after the production and it was quite the girls day out, as we all got our haircut at the same time! A good time was had by all and we all came home and napped til 5pm that night. We woke up to a shocked Mike that we cut Jamie's hair though I had been telling him it was time. It looks so much cuter, now the curls are curly again!

Yesterday we went to the library and there was a huge Mayors Christmas Party out in the plaza in front of the library. So after story and art time we went across the street. Seemed cool at first, they had free Hayrides, facepainting, crafts and a bounce house, but there were incredibily long lines for everything. After waiting for over 45 minutes to get half way through the face painting line we left. Luckily on the way out we got a small face tattoo that said "Joy" in green and red. She didn't know the difference. I will paint her face next weekend maybe.

Today we tried to go to Chik Filet for a bit of lunch and play and remembered that it is closed on Sundays, so we spent some time at the local Mickey Dee's. That Southwest salad isn't too bad.

We also looked at HD TV's. We are thinking of getting a smaller one (26") that we can use in our living room entertainment center until we get our debt paid down and get a larger one for the living room and move the smaller one up to the bedroom. I want to eventually hang the larger one on the fireplace above the mantel, and maybe even close our fireplace off. I hate the mess and don't even really like my fireplace... but that is in the future.

We probably should wait as we are trying to pay off debt, but we usually do something like this rather than buy each other smaller gifts. One big gift for the whole family to enjoy. Instead of dustcatchers...

How was your weekend?

Sorry to hear you are under the weather. I used to get bronchitis all the time, sometimes so bad I couldn't lift my head off the pillow. Then, in my mid 20s, I had my tonsils out and haven't had that problem so bad in a long time.

We usually do something similar for Christmas. One year it was the Tivo - that was before Ander

One of the things I found for Jamie at the thrift store is a purse with "Jamie" embroidered on it!!

Hope to catch up with you soon.

Oh Bronchitis is truly a pain in the butt! Just lingers on for way too long!
We usually try and buy one big family present also-but not this year, since we did some remodeling recently we are on a tighter budget. We are getting little things this time and then the kids are getting the usual-clothes, toys, games...etc..
still not done shopping for the extended family-got some nieces's and nephews, siblings parents..etc.. next year I hope we do a grab bag with them. It is getting way too expensive for us!
