Sick + Snow

A few posts back, I mentioned that my sister was sick. She ended up having the flu! Poor Hannah. She started out feeling really awful on Christmas day and is just starting to feel better. My brother came home for the holidays and caught the flu from my sister. Then my mom got it a few days later, and I caught a cold. WHEW.

I’m still not feeling good at all. I have been taking DayQuil, Alka-Seltzer, and NyQuil as well as popping throat lozenges like nobody’s business and downing chloraseptic. I can’t wait to feel like myself again. I haven’t felt this awful since I had the stomach flu in October!

Even though I’m sick, I’ve been enjoying my break as much as possible.snowpicturePittsburgh got some snow! The picture on the left and the picture on the right were taken about 30 minutes apart from each other.

With all of the snow on the ground, I played in it on Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday. On Saturday and Sunday, Jimmy and I rode his family’s Rzr (kind of like a sporty go-cart) in the snow and walked on a trail by his house. On Tuesday, my family + Jimmy went sled riding! It was a ton of fun. I haven’t been sled riding since Christmas 2010.048

I sprained my finger some time before Christmas. I have no clue what I did! I went to MedExpress on the 27th for X-rays and was so glad to hear it was only sprained. The doctor said it should be back to normal in a few weeks. IMG_4716Yuck.

Jimmy’s younger brother got me the cutest coffee mug for Christmas…IMG_4743The mug goes from “sleeping” to “awake” when hot liquids are poured in it. So cool.

So all in all, I’ve been relaxing and enjoying my time off. I go back to school on Monday (don’t want to talk about it… ugh haha). I’m not too much of a winter person, but I’m embracing all of the snow and having fun with the crazy weather. snowy2That’s my wowit’scoldandwindybutthiswillbefun face before playing in the snow.
