As the holidays are approaching it seems like everyone is getting sick. We are no exception, as we both came down with sore throats, achy bodies, and sniffles over the weekend and the entire office and city seems to be as well. But the festivities go on as do we, sickness and all. And we still had a good weekend and a good time drinking and eating more than we should given the circumstances and staying out late.
Friday night, Bryan and I headed over to Bellevue on the eastside for some laughs at the Parlor Comedy Club, seeing Harland Williams who was definitely one of those pick on the audience type comedians so thankfully we had a bottle of champagne to enjoy the antagonizing. We also visit Bellevue leaving us with a funny feeling and grateful to make it back to Seattle.
Saturday morning is when the true suffering began. I woke up hardly able to swallow or talk. Very worried about my ability to attend the Christmas Party that night, I downed several cups of Throat Coat tea before heading to my hair appointment to get my hair lightened again. Once Saturday night came I had conned myself into thinking I was feeling better and we both got dressed up for the party and headed to Georgetown to the Museum of Flight. Our company’s party was in the “shuttle room” so along with the usual dinner and drinks we got to tour the inside of the simulation shuttles used to train every single astronaut who has been in space. That exhibit was pretty cool but overall the entertainment and space was a little odd. The food must have been good because both Bryan and I left with a horribly full stomach. Our sickness hit us just before 11 pm when we both became completely tired and headed home.
Sunday morning came and with it lots of rain and grayness. We attended a great Christmas-catered service at church, then picked up some items for the gifts we were making, and headed home to settle in for an important Seahawks game. After a good brunch, the bad game began and it was horrible and wasn’t getting any better. We turned it off at the beginning of the 4th quarter because it was upsetting us both and began the task of making our gifts. It was a team effort and we were happy with the outcome. We made a good dinner to enjoy at home in front of our Christmas tree, lazily ending a good weekend.
Less than a week until Christmas!
