Cough, cough, sneeze, sniff, gulp,........

I am SICK of being SICK.

Seriously, I thought I was getting better, then just got worse. The other day I woke up weaker, with a slight headache, and the coughing began. Ever since my swim monday (2 wks ago), that was btw just horrible, I've been congested. So much so, I've had early evenings to bed, wake up all hrs of the night because laying my head down makes the congestion feel like I can't breathe at all. On top of that, I've had no downtime at all, work or home. At work, I've worked through my lunch every day for almost 2 wks, and worked over. Blah..... I have a lot of deadlines that came up at once and there was no time for me to take off to get better. Every evening, we've had something going on.

So, finally I went to the Dr yesterday. Of course, I have a virus and he gave me a z-pack, so I'm on day 2 of the 3 day pack and starting to feel slightly better. I'm hoping that by the weekend, I'll be back to 100% ME.

Over the last few weeks I've had the pleasure of spending some time with blogging friends. We ate dinner with Scott and Robin last week, which like she mentioned was way overdue. Fun, Fun. Last wednesday night, Neese invited me to be her date to a play at Furman University playhouse. It was the play, Proof and was great! We both were under the weather and had our tissue in our laps.

I know, I know, I'm complaining about this whole cold thing, but this is my blog and I'll do what I want to.

So some of you know that we are working hard in our home to get it ready to go on the market. We are tired of living in a townhome (not that there's anything wrong with that), we said we'd live in for just a few years. It is past 6 yrs now and it's on my nerves. So, with that comes painting, finishing projects we started but never completed, and packing stuff up.

As you all may know, I haven't been online at all lately. Well, in about 2 wks. I've tried to get online and catch up on what's been going on and well, I think I get the time to do it, and it just slips away. With that said, I will try to read blogs today or tomorrow. Thursday night, we will be packing for Myrtle Beach. I haven't ran since I came down with this virus, so it'll be interesting. I thought I would be ready for this race, and I'm highly disappointed I'm not.

Tonight, we're going to the Pink Floyd Experience. This is what I asked David for valentine's day. Romantic, I know. But, it's what I wanted and better than chocolate or flowers. I'm excited. I'm still not feeling "great", but I'm taking my congested self to it anyway. :-)

Thanks, pals for the condolences, prayers, etc. I needed them. I had a rough few days after my Uncle's passing. My uncle was 48 and just seeing my Grandmother tore up because she lost her baby, was enough to make anyone breakdown.

I hope you all are doing well. I haven't forgotten about you.

Get well soon! I hope you will cling to the hope that Easter brings with regard to your uncle and family! That hope of the Risen Christ is what sustains us all in times of grief! Hope y'all have fun tonight. Dark Side of the Moon is an all-time favorite!

You have a virus and he gave you a zpak? Shame on him. I think I'd find a new doctor. I hope you fell better soon Men. My condolences for the loss of your uncle. I, too lost a young uncle and also a young cousin. It's so hard to see the parents.

Take care of yourself.
