This is how I'm feelin'. I woke up on Monday morning about 3am feeling awful. Yes, I was stuffed up, sneezing, coughing and my head felt like it was full of fluff. Since Brandon was sick off school for three days last week with this and he stayed overnight on Saturday, I'm not sure if he passed the bug along or if I got it somewhere else. I do know that the day of Aunt May's funeral was not nice. It was freezing and there was a wind that had a bite to it. My ears were sore the next day and since I'm prone to ear infections, I started taking 5,000 mg of Vitamin C daily. I was hoping that it would boost my immune system so I wouldn't get sick. Oh well, it didn't work. But now I'm feelin' tired, achey, stuffed up and just plain miserable. This too shall pass but I dislike feeling like this.
The highlight of my day was talking to Deena from Can I Be Pretty in Pink on the phone. She's such a dear and I told her I'd call her a few weeks ago. Then Aunt May went into the hospital and everything got delayed. It was so nice to chat with Deena again and know that she's doing much better. Deena, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to chat with me. It was delightful to talk to you again.Tonight I ran across a fictional story that I wrote about 15 years ago. I have posted it on my Treasures to Me blog. It is the story of two men who have lived on the streets for years. I wish I had found it closer to Halloween, as it is a bit of a ghoulish tale. I don't often write fiction, but was inspired by a homeless man I met while driving taxi. I would be delighted to have you read it and give me some positive criticism.
Take care and enjoy your week, dear friends. ~Blessings, Mary~
