Happy Homemaker 2021-10-11

Good morning!  

I am late in posting this week.  we had family over this weekend for Thanksgiving - we had a nice time.  However sis had a sever allergy after supper Saturday and ended up in the hospital for the night.  Her face and lips got all puffy - 1st time something like that happens.  now she will have to figure out what she is allergic to.

Then on Sunday dh got sick before supper and me all night.  I don't know if it was indigestion or the 24-hour flu but my sides ache from vomiting too much.  so everyone left yesterday morning and I spent the day dragging and sleeping from time to time with tylenols all day and a splitting headache that wouldn't go away.  I took half a sleeping pill for the night.

This morning not up to par either (still have the headache and aching ribs).  Have tons of cleaning to do but it'll wait for now I'm just not feeling it.  will telework this morning and if not better will take the afternoon off.  No fun getting old.

Let's join Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom .

Mostly cloudy

A rather nice balmy week

On my mind
Sis - I hope they figure out her allergy quickly - they had to give her an ibipen.
Hoping we all feel better soon.
