Gift and Tidbits

Here is what I received for our 20th anniversary.  Hubby surprised me with this beautiful necklace.

I also got a dozen roses.  We plan to celebrate when he is off work.  Or can get work off.

Update on our sick daughter.  She did not go to the ER, but I am pretty sure she caught the actual flu - body aches, vomiting, headache, fever etc.  A friend of hers checked in on her, bringing her broth, and other "clear" foods.  Her brother also kept an eye on her, and she was able to get her work shift covered for a day of rest home in bed.

In the meantime, because she was over at our place on the 23rd, I've been sanitizing, and wiping everything people may have touched.  I'm even watching sofa blankets, as she stayed the night too.  We are doing preventative measures as well, with 4 Thieves vinegar, teas etc.

We don't have to worry about dinner prep for a few days.  We have a ton of leftovers and even breakfast from Christmas morning.  Although Hubby forgot to take a plate of goodies to work, he went with breakfast and lunch already made too.

It's always so sweet to get flowers! How nice. And a very thoughtful and cute gift! I hope your daughter gets better soon, how miserable to have the flu.

Thanks Rain. The daughter that is sick works full time in a movie rental store. I don't like to rent during winter due to how many people touch those things, yikes.
