This is me.....and my poor husband...we are held up in a hotel waiting for the

coughing, sneezing, sniffling, and runny nose to go away. We cant do much without getting soooooo tired.

I do have a confession, I wasn't too tired to go over to "I have a notion" and take advantage of her 25% off sell...but now I must lay down.....

We have seen our son from Iraq and the two sons that live here, they will be by all is not lost...just alittle set back. Please ask my mother not to be angry if we can't make it by her place in Lousianna....we are sorry....truly sorry...

And with that I will add my letter to Santa,

Dear Santa,

I guess it will make me a bad girl to not be able to go and visit my mother. I did buy her gifts and really wanted to see her...will still try. Does that make me really really bad? Can't I atleast get one gift? I promise to be good next year.

oh...also Santa, I am not in American Samoa right now, will you be able to find me? You can leave my gift at my sons apartment (oh...he hasn't been good either.....well....I have three sons here in Texas....isn't one of them any good?)...Oh...okay, my son from Iraq, he was doing a good thing for our surely you will drop something off for him and a little something for his mom? You will see what I want below....oh...please...please...please......I really will be good.

  1. Resting is much more important than shopping when a girl is going to be seeing her sons. Sleep girlfriend :)

    And may Santa bring you some Love....lots of Love.


  2. Barbara, I certainly hope you both feel better very soon. Nothing worse than going on a trip to visit family and then ending up in bed sick the entire time. I'm so sorry. I'm sure your mom (and Santa) both understand. Besides surely your mom doesn't want to catch whatever you are suffering with. Well, I'll let you go lay down. Get some rest and I will be keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers. **whispering** and I hope Santa grants your wish, I think it would help you feel better real quick. Hugs coming your way.

  3. Sorry you are still feeling sick. The tickle in my throat and the cough won't quit from my cold of a couple of weeks ago.....very annoying (I say....coughing even as I type this....*sigh*)

  4. oh Barb, get better soon. You really should consider wtiting as a second career. You are really good at it too.

  5. Oh no, I hope you both feel better soon. And I hope you can make it to see your mom.

  6. Barb, you are a trooper shopping when you are feeling under the weather.....LOL....but not laughing at you......I think your mom would understand and don't worry, Santa will be able to find you or your home....he has GPS! Take care and feel better!

  7. Icky sicky, boo and bah humbug!! I'm sure your mom will understand (we Moms are like that you know). Lots of rest and plenty of fluids as they say, and of course all the prayers going your way will surely help. Oh, and Santa knows how good you are--look at all you did to help the tsunami victims!!

  8. Oh Barb, I hope that you and your hubby will be feeling good as new. It's no fun to be sick for the holidays. Take care and get some rest.

  9. I hope you get to feeling lots better soon.
    Maybe Santa will be nice to you.

    I will search your blog for your "return home" date - but if you think to do so, remind me.

  10. So sorry to hear you are not feeling well Barb.So sad to be sick when you are on a family vacation to see your love ones.
    Just take care of yourself as best you can and DH too!!
    Hugs..from afar...;-)

  11. Barb, I'm so sorry you are sick while on vacation. Hope you feel better very soon.

  12. Oh poor Barb! How miserable to be sick while on vacation. I do hope you feel better soon and get to spend time with your family!

    I also hope Santa brings you just what you want. I'm pretty sure you've been a good girl... haven't you?

  13. I hope you and dh feel better soon. I think that's a very sad story, maybe Santa will have pity on you and give you that fat qtr bundle. Good Luck.. :)

  14. Oh no, this is not the time to be sick. Sickie go away and Santa bring Barb some fabric, I know she has been a very good girl! Enjoy your family as best as you can, and believe me mom's always understand!

  15. Oh no, I do hope that you feel better soon. I am glad to see it hasn't stopped you from enjoying your time to the best of your ability. Take care.

  16. So sorry to hear you are ill and stuck in a hotel at a time you should be enjoying visiting with family & friends. Shall I seen you care packages of tissues, hand sanitizer, lysol spray, vitamins, orange juice, and what ever else I can think of to get you feeling better?

    I do hope you feel better soon, very soon!


  17. Oh Barb how awful to be sick AND on vacation!! You two get lots of rest and fluids and I truly wish you a speedy recovery.


  18. Hope you are feeling a bit better by now. Sounds like you have the flu of some sort. It's hard to be away from home when we get sick. Rest is rest! We just got our H1N1 vaccinations this week. The Swine flu is still going strong here in Minnesota.

    Take care, be well soon!

  19. I hope you're feeling 100% soon and can visit your mother! The fabric you picked out from FQS is gorgeous! I love pink and green together!


Life is a breeze with you in it. Thanks for stopping by!
