worst christmas ever

well, maybe not the worst worst because we've had worst, but one for the books. aside from the fact that we've been in a serious funk for the last month or so, last tuesday night, on the 23rd, we had dinner out with a couple of colleagues. we must have eaten some bad sashimi—or just too much sashimi..?—because we started the next morning, christmas eve, the 24th, with a queasy stomach. then came the puking. then more puking. we couldn't keep anything down, not even water. bad sashimi? or too much sashimi? must have been a really bad virus. bad virus! *spank* so we spent the whole day in bed, our plans of wrapping gifts completely shot. by 7pm, we forced ourselves out of bed, took a shower, got dressed, went to our parents' house for our traditional christmas eve get-together, and proceeded to lie down on the sofa. and slept. all doubled up. but we did get some really elegant gifts this year. which made us smile :-) big smile :-D we used to think it was kinda tacky to show off in a blog what you got for christmas, but what the hell, these are just too lovely not to share...

thank you thank you thank you to everyone who sent presents, no matter how big or small. receiving each one was a wonderful surprise.

OMG! Ms. Liz? I didn't realize you actually had a terrible sashimi night, as in seriously. Dette and I were okay though. at least our tummies were. I got really sick with high fever and bad cough and colds but not an upset tummy at all. Hope you're all well by now, ma'am.
