My older sister Patti emailed me, asking if I was okay. It's because I usually would have updated my journal with my trip to see Sherry. I am okay, I just came down with a really bad sore throat that is easing into congestion and drainage now. Last night I woke up at 1 a.m. and every swallow hurt, but you know how it is, if you dont swallow long enough, your throat dries, and then it hurts even more to swallow. I finally got back to sleep about 4 a.m. and then the alarm went off at 4:45 a.m. to get Ian up for work. I did, barely, and layed right back down. I woke up again this morning about 8:30, but still felt bad so I went back to sleep and the next time I woke up it was just after 12 p.m.! I got on up. I had to. I had to go get groceries today. Animal and people groceries. As long as I kept moving I was okay...but now I am home...and I was doing good to put up the cold stuff.
So I feel like a slug, with the slime and all. I am going to lay down til Ian gets home from work. I fixed some home made chicken noodle soup last night, so thats what we are having tonight too. Thank goodness for leftovers.
I am behind on laundry, cleaning, dishes, animal tending, and journals. Tomorrow I will spend a lot of time catching up on all of these things. Right now, I feel like I need to lay down and take a nap, til say oh...I dont know, tomorrow morning?
I do have a lot of pictures and a lot to tell about visiting Sherry, but I am just not up for it today. Maybe tomorrow. I did have a nice time though and we were able to catch up without a lot of interference...neighbors, Kelsey, distractions were not there.
Night night y'all...tomorrow is another day, a fresh page, a clean slate. I will see what I can do with that after some good rest.
