Confession: I was at a near-anxiety attack the whole week before Christmas. And I’m not exaggerating.
I kept having visions (nightmares?) of Christmas 2016 throughout all of last week. It was awful.
For those who don’t know, we battled the dreaded stomach bug for most of December 2016. It hit all four of us, twice, on Christmas Eve, and landed poor Ari in the hospital just two days after Christmas.
So when people around us were dropping like flies, I was in a
lightweight hardcore panic. I just kept thinking, “Please, PUH-LEASE don’t end up like last year.”
I am happy to report that we did not get sick at Christmas. [HOORAY, heard far and wide, y’all!]. I mean, both of the kids had bronchitis, and Chad had a sinus infection/double-ear infection — but it wasn’t the stomach bug! So… yay!
And the week thereafter came and went without fanfare. And our New Year’s Eve was just as low-key.
With that said, I have to say, Peace Out, 2017! It was a heck of a ride!
- I got my cycling certification.
- We got the stomach bug 2+ times.
- I started feeling like myself again.
- And then we decided to have another baby.
Like I said, it’s been quite a year. So here goes nothing — the final goodbye to 2017 with my One Second Everyday video!
If nothing else, I hope you found closure this holiday season. And I wish you a happy and prosperous 2018!
