It's 2008 (finally)

I'm still wondering where my flying car is, and my hover board that "Back to the future 2" teased me with. Not to mention my self sizing jacket with an air conditioner and heater inside. Maybe next year though...

At least we have the iphone though right?

Anyways my life has gone a little something like this:
We woke up at 7:20 am Christmas morning and let Hannah open her presents from "Santa" She only was REALLY thrilled about two, so we had to open those right away. Then we packed up our car and with those two special presents and headed over a couple rivers and through some woods, and then kept going, and going, and going, then over some more rivers to the point where you think you can not go any further without seeing some sort of human existence to grandmothers house. All joking aside Buna isn't THAT bad, of course I could NEVER live there, small towns just aren't for me, but I NEVER mind visiting.

Christmas night Hannah ran a fever and woke up in the middle of the night to throw up. The next day we got her into a local nurse practitioner, who diagnosed her with a sinus infections and prescribed some medicine. The rest of that day she was her normal self, and didn't run fever at all. Until 2:00 am she had a slight fever and we gave her some motrin and it went away until 8:00 am when she woke up to throw up again, and had a fever and we gave her motrin but it did nothing, and her fever kept slowly climbing. We finally got her into the doctor again, and she had a 104.7 fever. The took her clothes off had her eat a popsicle and gave her some motrin and Tylenol, and slowly the fever came down and they gave her a chest x-ray and took some blood, then found out she had pneumonia, and gave her a painful shot in her butt, to where she said, "They hurt the butt."

She hasn't had a fever over 101 since. We left Sunday morning and Saturday night I started to get congested, and through out the night my throat began to hurt, and i woke up with my body hurting and my head feeling ready and willing to explode. So the ride home was decent, Hannah did good both ways in the car. We got home and I unpacked the car and by that time a my body was still in pain and it just got worse and worse. I tried taking some Dayquill, which did NOTHING, then at night I tried Nightquill which again did nothing but at least it made me drowsy. I woke up the next day and went to work after taking Hannah to the doctor for another check up. Anyways the pain continued through work and the fever as well. Last night I took some Motrin myself and that seemed to get rid of the fever and some of the aches and pains. Most of the day today was spent fairly fever free without medicine and I thought Iw as doing better until 5:00 pm hit and I started to slowly feel like CRAP again.

It seems every year around this time i always get sick with something...

Happy New Year to everyone!
