On the 5th day of Christmas....

Okay I have no idea of how the Days of Christmas work but I know my early gift is the FLU! Yep, I tested positive for the flu yesterday : ( Hoping rest, fluids and tamiflu are going to work wonders and have me feeling before Christmas. I am exiled to the bedroom to keep the rest of the family from catching it.

The Christmas spirit is going strong in the Montgomery house! Parker is so excited for Christmas! We mark off days on the calendar each day and countdown the days left. We have Elf on Shelf and he loves seeing where "O" (that is the elf's name) is every morning. Check out our festivity schedule:

Saturday, 17th Christmas with High School girl friends (check)
Sunday 18th @ 1:00 my dad's Christmas (check)
Sunday 18th @ 5:00 Mom's extended family (check)
Friday 23rd @ 5:00 My parents
Christmas Eve morning Scott's dad breakfast
Christmas Eve supper Scott's mom's dinner
Christmas morning: our own Christmas at our house
Christmas night: stepdad's family
December 28th/29th: go to Nashvile for ICE and stay at Opryland Hotel!

WOW! We are busy people but so blessed to have so much family to celebrate with. Gaining that 5 to 7 pounds will not be a problem for me! I was planning on being proactive and getting in 5 to 7 miles most days in hopes of fighting the holiday weight gain and getting closer to 1,300 miles for the year. But I will not be running for a few days with the flu diagnosis. Glad I had a good 12 mile run last Saturday.


  1. Wow, you are busy

    I hope you get better soon and I wish you and your family a great Holiday

  2. I hope you feel better! This reminded me that I need my hubby to go get his flu shot... we have a 2 week old we need to keep healthy this winter!
