* Feliz Navidad eh?

It's Christmas Eve.  My first Christmas in Mexico.  I'm excited.  Things to do, places to go.  Why then is it that by 10:00 AM yesterday morning I was feeling bad ... really BAD.  By this morning I knew a Dr. was in order.  Dr. Gorgeous was out of town ... he makes house calls.  I called Dr. Sylvia and told her I could come in.  I can hardly drag myself out of bed .... but I do.  Ruben comes and picks me up.  I've got bronchitis.  That's the short story.  I'M SICK!  IT'S CHRISTMAS.  No party for me.  Hopefully, next year.  This year I am nestled in my bed, Habibi by my side, coughing and hacking .... don't worry I won't go into the details.

So ... from our house to your house ... from our hearts to your heart .... Happy Happy Christmas.  I have a feeling I won't be posting tomorrow.  You never know.

Crumbs, I thought I was going to have to take a few photographs to get one of me looking bad, but hey- first try!  YIKES.
"I reckon being ill as one of the great pleasures of life, provided one is not too ill and is not obliged to work till one is better."  ~Samuel Butler
I'm not sure I agree with this quote.  Perhaps tomorrow when I'm feeling slightly better.  
Hope Santa has been good to you.


  1. Oh Lady D, I am so sorry that your first Christmas in Mexico isn't great. Get well soon, like tomorrow soon(lol))

    Happy Christmas.

  2. Thanks Salma. It's 1:15 am. Habibi has been shaking all night because of the fireworks. Poor little guy. I'm just awake 'cause I feel rotten. :o) I'm on the mend though ... I'm om the mend ...
