Four Days of Ups and Downs

The downs first... I have been completely knocked on my butt by bronchitis and sinus infection.  I have missed two days of school.  I've had a fever until this afternoon.  I've been coughing my guts out.  My head feels like it's going to explode.  And let's not even talk about the stuff I'm blowing out... I'll just drop it there.  I really can't remember the last time I was this sick.  I finally broke down and went to the doctor yesterday, and he gave me a powerful antibiotic.  It had BETTER be powerful, considering my copay price was $100, and there are only 5 pills in the bottle!!!!  He also refilled my cough medicine which was the main reason I went.  I cannot sleep without it these days.  I had been working on this illness at the end of last week, but I just refused to be sick while Jeff and Duane were here for Mandie's wedding.

Jeff got into town on Thursday, and then Duane arrived on Friday, so we all had some fun quality time together outside of the wedding.  Saturday was especially nice.  We started with coffee at Revelations and then did some strolling around the square.  I had to buy incense for Sunday School (don't ask), so that warranted a lovely stop at Thymely Solutions.  We also enjoyed the At Home Store and The Chocolate Cafe, as always.  We went back to Revelations for wood fired pizzas for lunch, and I discovered that The Florentine may be my new favorite, nudging out my tried and true shrimp/pesto/sundried tomato.  After that, we picked up Avery and had a beautiful walk at Jefferson County Park.


  1. I remember the last time you were this sick...it was before 2000 because I was still working for the state. You were with your Grandma and Matt and Matt had a hard time waking you up and it scared the crap out of him. I am quite sure you had to go to the emergency room. But....my dear, this is of course what we love about you -- you do NOTHING half ass!!

    I love you -- Trace

  2. Ugh... that's right. That's the only time in my life I've ever fainted. Man, I was sick. Hey, actually it makes me feel really good now because I'm not even close to being that sick!! Thanks! I'm cured! :)
