Christmas so far  
Today has had its ups and downs. We opened one gift each for an early Christmas like we usually do. I was so excited and looking forward to this. I opened ACTipton80's gift and was very happy to find an E. coli. My Giant Microbe collection is growing. And of course Chris opened the PS4. I was hoping my back would be better today so we could go out and have some fun but it got worse. I actually got pretty sick and painful. I'm not sick with any illness but because of the pain my body thinks it is and I get these mild fevers on and off. My energy level is very weak. Healthy wise it has sucked but I love my gifts so far and I have enjoyed watching Chris play GTA 5. I want to play too but I just don't have the energy or the strength. It's hard to think and you have to strategize a lot in those games. I had to lie down part way through the day. Then I thought I was getting better but no. Feels like stabbing and a brick in my left lower side. I've got acid reflex. I took an acid reducer for that already. But it also makes me feel kind of nauseous. All symptoms of fibromyalgia. Sucks to get sick on Christmas. But I can't wait to open everything tomorrow. I doubt I'll be any better. I've been bad like this for more than a week now. Actually I think two weeks. I hope this isn't another three month thing. I really want to go to that park with Chris and hike for miles and ride canoes. I want to be well enough for that. We're talking about getting me a wheel chair for those times I get bad but still want to go out. We haven't decided if we will get one locally which is more expensive or order one on Walmart's website. The kind with the big wheels so I can push myself too if I have to. I tried out the one at the store here and was impressed how easy it was. I thought I'd be fighting my weight like on a bike. The weather's crap too. Cloudy then it started to rain. So who knows if we even could have done the park anyway had I been fine. I don't know if tomorrow the weather will be better. I don't think I'll be better the way I feel now. But I do want to open gifts and I want to get well enough to get back to my art. I was working on something really cool and it hurts to sit in my chair again. Chris has been wondering staying with me and sitting by me when I'm in bed. He's been using George's voice a lot for me and well we just pretend he's George and I'm Leeanix and he's taking care of me.

Aww that's too bad about the sickness. It seems terrible having the condition that you have. I sincerely hope you'll get better soon, I don't like it when my friends are suffering something bad like this. The weather here sucks too, always cloudy and I think it was drizzling here. I miss the sun. But the gifts that you got seem neat, so that's good.

Yeah when it's bad it's bad. This isn't the worst. I think I went through the worst already and hope I never go through it again. I don't either. I always worry when I hear my friends are physically ill or hurt. Yeah the temps being cold certainly haven't helped me any. Who knows perhaps by morning I'll be ok. Fibro is so unpredictable. Thanks. I like the gifts so far. Can't wait to open more tomorrow. Gosh I hope yours arrives already. I was in bed thinking how it would suck if they arrive in January despite me sending them early.

I can't wait to see which ones you got me. The E. coli was the only one on your wish list that the museum had. I'm actually glad he fit in that hummingbird box because I was having trouble finding a box to ship him in.

I hope you get better soon. Being sick on Christmas sucks, but you have plush microbes to cuddle, and plush birds too. Macaw and Cockatoo are going with me on my trip.

We've had awful weather today and yesterday. I haven't gotten enough exercise because of that, but it's supposed to be sunny tomorrow.

I'm sure you'll like them. I want to see pics of all the ones you have too. So I can't wait for tomorrow. Well I think I'd be happy with any microbe I don't have, even if it's not on my list. I know I have a lot of the newer ones listed. I like ordering directly from Giant Microbes. They come nicely packed and brand new in bags. They have been sold out of Ebola for weeks now because of the media hype. I'm so glad I have the putty version from when I visited you.

Yes I have lots of cute microbes and other plushies to keep me company. I have been playing with them today. Oh that's great. Perhaps I should chose a travel microbe. I don't know who my fave is yet.

It's been cold and rainy here. I hope tomorrow is sunny for us too.
