The title of my post says it all. I feel as if I have been on a roller-coaster ride since Friday, 24 December 2010 and it has just come to a stop for the first time. Now I must just sit still for a moment or two, to give my "insides" a chance to settle down.
First of all, before I tell about the ride, I hope that you have all had a very blessed Christmas and that during 2011 the good will outweigh the bad by tons. Thank you all for being my Blogland friends during the past year and I promise to try very hard to post more often this year. It is just that reading your posts is so much more fun than writing my own posts.
I am so happy and relieved that this particular roller-coaster ride is over that I do not want to dwell on it any more than I have to. Suffice to say that it included Hubbie's very irregular heartbeat of 138, hospitalisation for Hubby for intensive treatment for a very serious infection, visitors (house guests) 24/7 since 23 December, a visit home for Hubby over the weekend (he is not mobile and must be nursed around the clock), a geyser that flooded the ceiling, no water in the taps and just to add insult to injury, I swallowed a honey bee that stung me in my throat (luckily there was no time to have a reaction and apart from a very bad case of "tonsilitis" I survived in one piece). We were also blessed(?) with temperatures in the high 30's and low 40's (celcius) which did not help at all.
So yes, I guess I can quite honestly say that I had a very busy festive season and now I cannot wait to return to work tomorrow - for the air conditioning and the rest!
PS: Somehow cloning does not seem such a bad idea at present - I could do with two of me.
