What a week

This week has been interesting to say the least.

I woke up last Saturday very tired. Sleep seemed like heaven and I could not get enough. Staying up late is a hobby of mine. I wanted to go to sleep at 7.

Sunday morning I woke up with labored breathing. I could feel the crud filling up my lungs. Mucinex was the answer.

Monday I woke up not feeling better. I went to the doctor who was convinced I had the flu. I told her I had never had the flu but it didn't feel like the flu. I thought I might have bronchitis. She told me that I didn't complain enough. She said that I had many symptoms that were much worse that I let on.

She tested me and I had bronchitis. She put me on an inhaler and sent me home.

The same day hubby got a call from his boss. Our intuition was right and he got laid off from his job. We really have faith that this will be okay. We are in a strange limbo but know we will be fine.

I think most people are waiting for this to hit us hard. I know it is hard to believe but there is no doubt. We will be fine. We might have to make sacrifices but we are blessed and know, with out a shadow of doubt, that life will go on. We don't need anything but each other.

Tuesday I came down with a cold on top of the bronchitis. I was not a pretty sight.

Wednesday we were all iced in. There was an ice storm and the town shut down. It was nice for all of us to be together. I do wish I had felt better so I could have enjoyed everyone more, but I loved being with them.

Thursday I was supposed to judge the science fair. I was far to sick to go. My friend Ann stepped up and helped me. I was so grateful.

Friday I was able to get out of my slump a little. I woke up and got baby girl ready for school. I went and set up breakfast for the teachers, then came home and rested.

Today I have decided to not be sick anymore. I still feel a little under the weather but I will forge on. The time limit is up on my cold. ;)

You cannot be sick tomorrow. I forbid it.
