Sloughing Off The Death
I am finally beginning to feel better. My headaches are less, the ringing in my ears is gone, and I have only been through about a fifth of a box of tissues today. And the upswing of having The Death is that I think I’ve lost a few pounds!! So to celebrate, we went out to dinner! Yay!
After dinner we went to the book store and bought Sun a couple of books–a Gossie book (I love that little gossling!) and Olivia (that pig is darn cute, too). Sun received a Gossie book from my sister some time ago and so I got a second one ’cause I liked the first so much. My friends that were recently in town with their 2 year old really liked Olivia, so we picked that one up too.
Nothing like a bout of The Death to make me appreciate good health and my job–you know, the one away from home. I have spent an awful lot of time in my house this past week, too sick to work or dine with friends or meet one new online friend (whose medical problems make my measly bout with The Death seem like a pleasant walk in the park).
I still have very little appetite and no taste for coffee–two sure signs I am not feeling all that well. However, I am very appreciative to be on the mend and have things in the near future in which to look forward.
