Not only is it cold outside, I actually have a cold.  The people at work like to share.  Everyone seems to have it, so I was destined to get it too.  Instead of shopping for Christmas presents, I spent the weekend in bed with a fever.  It's been awhile since I've had a cold and this one feels like it's hit harder than usual.  Shiver was quite the pain between trying to steal my tissues and insisting on being petted.  Chico was his usual sweet and cuddly self.  Took some Nyquil Saturday night and had some very weird dreams.  Feeling better now, just wish the extremely stuffy nose would clear up.
We've gotten our first and second snow, then the rain came and washed it all away.  The rain froze, making driving dangerous.  We're due even more snow in the coming week.  The boys hate the white stuff and it's hard to get them to go out in it to do their business.

My contract was supposed to end with my current job at the beginning of the year.  Thankfully, it has been extended another month.  My boss says she thinks they'll probably keep me at least through March.  The department is closing sometime in the new year, so I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to stay on.  I'm just extremely grateful and hope I can continue working there for awhile longer.  I'd just barely started to get some bills paid down, then Shiver got sick and now I'm right back to where I was before I started, debt-wise.

Shiver is still doing well.  He still isn't 100% back to normal, but close enough.  He just has one very small side effect that doesn't affect his quality of life.  He's down to being weaned off one last medication and if all goes well, he won't need to go back on them. Chico is also doing well.  Looking at them, I don't think anyone else would ever guess that anything was wrong with either of them.

I'm glad you are feeling a little better. That's a bummer that you were in bed all weekend, but you had your pups to keep you company.
