What a week. If you read my previous post, you probably know that my sisters husband passed away friday morning. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. my heart just breaks for her. losing 2 husbands in the last 6 years... unthinkable. I didnt really know John and had only met him once. but I'm glad that I had had that chance. I wish we werent so far apart geographically. She is in missouri. I would love to be able to hop on a plane and go see her, but I cant. Im hoping that she will be able to get a break and maybe she can go down to florida to visit our mother. That would be good for her.
In other news. Ive been sick since last monday! monday, tuesday and wednesday I figured it was just a really bad cold and that if I wasnt feeling better by friday Id go to the dr. Friday came and though I really didnt feel good I thought maybe I was a little better, as some of my voice had returned.. But saturday was worse and sunday was still not good so I ended up going to an urgent care hoping to just get an antibiotic, pretty much figuring that I had a sinus infection or broncitis or both!
So yesterday, I pull myself together and take myself to urgent care and what to my wondering eyes should appear and empty parking lot and a sign on the door that says.. " urgent care closed due to sickness"!! can you believe that? So I drove to batavia where there is another one. And I was in and out in less then a half an hour and I loved the dr. The diagnoses was pretty much exactly what I thought, a nasty sinus infection and chest congestion! Got the script filled and now two doses later... I think I might actually be improving. I would like to go to work today, but I dont think its a good idea. Hoping a quiet day home, resting and another day of meds and hopefully I'll be in much better shape tomorrow. The headache alone is a killer. I bought one of those micro bead heater up in the microwave bags to put across the forehead, face and back of my neck hoping for relief. It worked pretty good last night. will be trying it again this morning.
So needless to say I was sick for thanksgiving. Which is probably why I got worse, because I of course pushed myself for two full days to get everything done. We had a nice hectic day. A very typcial our kind of family day! I didnt get a lot of pictures Just a few. no voice and too much commotion to really do much better.. Plus.. as you can see, I wasnt getting the best cooperation from anyone.. kids or adults! Theres always a joker in the bunch.. usually his name is robert! lol!
some cooperated a little better then others. lol!
And somehow.. others totally missed the boat in the reindeer department!
And... did you know I had a set of twins? sometimes Jennifer and Bethany look so much like each other its funny. there are almost 5 years between them though. they were trying to make the same expression for this pic!
and my favorite pic of the day...
have poked around a bit digging through Christmas bins and putting a few things out. I put the tree up the night before thanksgiving. It'll take me a while to do the rest.. there is soooo much! just need to feel back to normal first! gotta get better quick now! torry pies birthday party is this coming weekend and it will also be bethanys birthday. Plus, theres those bears and decorating, all that shopping and of course baking! makes me exhausted just thinking about it all! LOL!
so off I go. I need to do some blog hopping later today. so hope to see you all out there!
