Hello! We got back from our annual Christmas Disney family vacation last night. I came back sick. This morning I went to the doctor and found out I have a sinus infection and an ear infection. Just what I needed right? Anyway, life goes on even when we are sick. I will be doing just the minimum for a few days, taking my meds and drinking lots of water while watching Hallmark Christmas movies 🙂 I hope your week is off to a better start than mine!
Welcome to the 116th week of Turn It Up Tuesday! Thank you for stopping by and linking up with us last week, and every week, as we have some fun linking up and getting to know each other!
