I Have Lyme Disease

With a nasty case of the flu making it's way through the house, I'm making my way through an illness of my own.  Last week, I found out I have Lyme disease.  As I look back over the last several months it seems obvious; aching joints, nausea, dizziness, weakness, etc., but it wasn't until the tell tale red ring showed up on my back that I knew exactly what was going on.  I needed a visit to the doctor.  He put me on a month of antibiotics and a diet of immune boosting foods, along with lots of rest and sleep.

It's times like this that I'm so grateful to be homeschooling and working from home.  Projects are finished when I've got the energy and I'm able to rest when I need to.  It's been our biggest holiday season ever for the shop, and Mike has been a huge help getting all of the holiday orders out in time!

So, we're only doing as much as necessary for the holiday season.  Celebrations will be very simple and more gifts may be purchased online, instead of made by hand.  I've made peace with it though, and am looking forward to our annual 12 Days of Solstice.... even if I do have to trade caramel corn and cookies for pomegranates and blueberries.
