Still Here

Well, I am still alive--even though I now know exactly what the phrase 'feeling like death warmed over' means. I'm still coughing up body parts, but that too shall pass. I'm feeling weak as a newborn kitten and can't stay up for any length of time, but it will get better. I'm still hoping to be able to get some decorating done this weekend--A and her husband will be here on Christmas Eve, so there are expectations. However, I have let them know that there will NOT be any truffles this year--I just don't have the time or energy. Now, I may make them after Christmas, but that remains to be seen. :)

Last night I slept in bed for the first time in days. It just had been so much easier for me to sleep in the recliner because of the coughing, but I may have turned a corner on that one. I will know that I am all better when I can stay up for the majority of the day AND have enough strength to shower before going to bed. The showering has been a bit spotty lately--and I DO know that is just WAY too much information. :)

Another thing that has been proven to me through this entire ordeal is just how much of a hockey/Red Wing fan I am. Now we all know I am just a bit obsessed, but even with being as sick as I have been, I haven't missed an entire game--and I have managed to watch parts of non-Wing games, too. Granted, there are a few of the games I WISH I had missed, but... And my world continues.

This will sound extremely harsh, but I believe I know the 'reason' I got sick like I did. (I believe everything happens for a reason.) As it turned out, the day after my conjunctivitis was diagnosed, The Father's twin sister died. This is the same aunt of mine who has been so sick for the past year or so. Being as sick as I was gave me a completely legitimate excuse to not attend the funeral. I guess I DO have a guardian angel. I am, of course, NOT under the delusion that anyone in The Family actually believes I was sick, but that doesn't matter--at least I have a clear conscience about the whole thing.

I have every intention to be back on the interweb on a semi-regular basis from now on--hopefully the body will cooperate! I'm glad to be back.
