A better day!

So although I woke up feeling pretty much useless - yes, nauseous and fatigued again - I told myself that I needed to do something for my daughter!  I couldn't have her spend her entire day staring at mommy lying on the couch in a stupor.  She deserves more than that!  So, I got up and got a shower - almost puked numerous times (yes, it's getting worse - yeah! I guess... ;-) - and then we got out of the house.

After a quick trip to get her bangs cut so I could see those beautiful blue eyes again, we went to see Santa!

This year, she wanted to sit on his lap and tell him what she wants for Christmas!  That's big!!  Last year, it wasn't gonna happen - she threw a huge fit as we neared his sleigh, and she had to yell to him what she wanted for Christmas because she wasn't about to touch him for anything!!

Well, this year, I asked her if she wanted mommy in the picture - she said, "No! I got this Mommy!"  She walked up the sleigh stairs, sat on his lap, and took the above picture.  She also said she wanted the Belle doll with matching tea set - which we have under the bed already - and she wants a Hello Kitty doll - which aunt Lisa has waiting for her.  It's all good!

Anyway, we came home, took a 3 hour nap, and now I feel better!  Finally, some moments without nausea!  I'm relishing every moment right now.  Gonna take it easy though, so we've watched Frosty the Snowman and now are watching Santa Clause is Coming to Town.  I love these videos!

I'm so inspired, I may grade some papers in a few mins.  ... well, maybe...

Merry Christmas All!
