Junk post! Enjoy!
~ If you follow me on Facebook, back in August, I posted that I came home with a cold on the same day as last year! How does that work out? So I know exactly when I got sick this time around, instead of doing that ole "I think I remember feeling sick for kind of around two possibly three weeks" thing. I've had this cold since August 24th. Ugh. I finally broke down and went to the doctor because, honestly, I haven't made much progress in getting better. My sinus' still have lots of pressure, my ears are still plugged, I cough incessantly, and I'm so tired. I can get, what I think, is a great night's sleep, and still feel tired in the morning. Now, when you have little ones running around, that's pretty normal. But for me, when I sleep well the night before, I usually can get up and moving pretty well. Not so right now. I just want to stay in bed all morning. In fact, I'm still in my 'jamas as I type this. I'm just so tired. So I went to the doctor yesterday. And sure enough, I have something. I totally can't remember the name of what I have (foggy brain), but I got some meds, and the doc also gave me an inhaler for my lung congestion. I have a new found respect for those that have to use inhalers. I'm having a bit of trouble really breathing in strongly enough and deeply enough for the meds to seem to have any effect. In fact, I told Terry that I feel like it's making my cough worse. I'll give it a couple more days before I really judge whether or not it's effective. I'm just praying all the meds kick in soon. I've got to get some energy soon.
~Speaking of which, the worst part of going to the doctor? Weighing in. By far, the worst part. My weight, out of control. My blood pressure, totally awesome. Thank you to whatever parent gave me the good gene of having great blood pressure. Throughout my life, if my blood pressure is in the normal side, that's on the high side for me. So I really need to watch what they put down, because they don't always understand that normal is high. Yesterday, I was awesome. But my weight...... Yikes. Well, like I say, hopefully I can start feeling better and not cough up a lung so I can get out and start walking again. Ugh.
~I love Terry. Just putting that out there. We got in a bit of a "disagreement" (read that I throw a huge hissy fit about something, and he just rode it out), and I miss him when I'm not speaking to him. ;)
~Big thanks to our Aly for introducing me to the joy of spearmint Lifesavers. I love them so much. I literally could eat a whole package of them in one sitting. Well, a small package of them anyway.
~People. I'm doing it. I've decided that I'm going to start reading all my Agatha Christie books again. I haven't read through these since I bought the whole series about 15 years ago. Seriously. And I've decided that it's time to take a few minutes to each day to let go of everything that is going on in my world, and see what it happening in her world.
~So yesterday, Tessa, her friend, and I went to the movie to watch "Saturday's Warrior". Okay all you that are my age! Do you remember this movie from our childhood? Oh man, I loved that show. I was so excited to go see it. Well...... I didn't love it as much as the original version, but they sang a lot of the same songs, so I did have the joy of singing along. And I wasn't embarrassing anyone because we were the only three in the theater. That is always the best. So my rating, probably around a 7. But the girls loved it! They both were very enthusiastic. So I guess it's all in your perception.
~This weekend is our Primary Program. For the last 14 months, I've been the chorister in our ward for the primary kids. It has been a such a blessing in my life. As I've taught the children new songs each month, I've felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that I am a daughter of God, and that He knows me and loves me. I've much needed that in my life through the last year, which has been a very difficult one. I've also felt the love of the kids, as they've done everything I've asked of them. They are wonderful, spunky, and caring. I'm so excited to see all of their work in learning the songs from this year! I just know that our congregation will be touched. If you would like to hear these awesome kids sing, come to our church service! LDS Stake center, 9:00 a.m. See you there!
~And that is enough for today! Mwah!
