It all started when I got back from Mexico. I got in Friday night after being detained by homeland security, but that’s a whole other story. For most of Saturday I felt fine, but by the evening I was pretty tired, which I thought was just cause of the plane ride. Sunday was the baptism of my cousin, so I went to that and as soon as I got back, I was tired again so I went to sleep. I woke up a few hours later and I didn’t feel so good. So I just jummed around the house and then went to bed at night. Except I went to bed and I couldn’t sleep all night cause I had this intense fever and I kept having the strangest dreams when I feel asleep. I’d sleep for like fifteen minutes at a time and while I was dreaming I kept thinking that I was wasting my time because I was doing nothing productive and I kept thinking I had to build something.
Anyway, I went to the doctor’s the next morning and they said I had some sinus infection or something. So then, the next day, both my mom and sister were sick and had fevers and all that good stuff. This was the Tuesday before Christmas so we got none of our shopping done. I had managed to go out one day and I got a few gifts just so I wouldn’t have nothing for Christmas. So come Christmas day, we all had very little to give each other, definitely not what we had in mind. So we’ve decided to go out together and do our shopping post Christmas.
To make things worse we were supposed to have our cousins over and some more family that had just flown into the U.S. from Peru the same day I came back. But no one could come over cause the whole house was infested with the sickness. So we spent our Christmas just with just ourselves and our few little gifts. Hope next year’s Christmas turns out better.
