Dear Diary Tuesday...

Well, the weekend and New Years did not turn out like I had hoped. I came home last Friday with a horrible sore throat. By Saturday morning my throat was swollen almost shut, it hurt just to breath. I did not sleep at all Friday night because of how bad my throat hurt. I ended up spending the entire weekend on the couch and Dylan took care of me. It was absolutely pathetic. However, I gave into the exhaustion and the illness and just RELAXED. Dylan and I watched a bunch of movies, which was really nice. I spent a lot of time sleeping (thanks to cough syrup with codeine and Nyquil) which I think I really needed. The only time I left the couch was to go over to my folks house to give medication to Tiny Mite and Samantha and then come back home. Truly pathetic. HOWEVER, I think I have beat it and am on the mend as I feel pretty good today.

I am really looking forward to the start of a New Year. I have a lot of exciting things planned for myself, as well as around the house and yard. I am "taking back" my backyard this year and Dylan and I are going to be putting together a dog run for Helga and Coal to be in when they are outside and we are not out there to be with them. They won't be living in it, it will just be saving my yard from being dug up. I plan on planting a couple of new trees this year, as well as turning a flower bed into a rose garden (beautiful flowers, less maintenance....you get the idea). Dylan and I are also starting on a new path to health this year. We both have physical's planned for this month (yes, including blood work for me) and joining a new mindset for eating.....and both of us are EXTREMELY excited. It will nice to get back to being healthy and happier.
