Taste of Jealousy is Like a Lust for Gold

Day Twenty
Not only does the plumber do serial killing on the side, he even has a convenient portable ice box to transfer and dispose of the bodies.

Yesterday brought on a slight rush of energy, which allowed me to finally finish my handmade gifts.


The hardest part was keeping the children away. They like the sparklies way too much.

Of course, I think the rush of energy was a side effect of the allergic reaction to the antibiotic. Nothing says "happy holidays" and "rosey cheeks" quite as well as a nice, red rash.

I thought they found an antibiotic that you weren't allergic to? I mean, except for all the vomiting. What a bummer.

I love the ornaments.

It's amazing how much most boys like the sparklies.

very cute pictures.

sparklies are very fun for little ones! (and so very messy)

are you still sick to your stomach, or "only" itching now?

Dawn said...

Great photo ornaments! Love the sparklies... :)

The ornaments are lovely. I hope your rash goes away soon, did the antibiotics at least get rid of the pneumonia? Can you continue to take the meds even with the reaction? Maybe you should get the old fashioned shot instead of the slow daily poison? Hope you feel better soon.

You finished a batch of handmade goodies and developed an allergic reaction to a whole new antibiotic..

Look at you.. all sick and multi tasking.

hey, three more days and then we can stop being busy and bin the "'happy' it's Chritsmas smile".

We can be miserable in peace.

Love the "shiny bits" as they are called in our household. 'sparkles' are for girls and shiny bits are for everyone. Apparently. According to No 2 who's four.

The sparkly things are terrific! I don't blame the boys one bit for liking them.

This is a list of Christmas carols that really resonate around our house. I think you'll understand- especially "We'll Be Ill for Christmas." ha! (I know, I KNOW it's not funny...)
