A Little Down

Today Oscar and I were to have gone to his mom's home to celebrate his birthday (which is on the 7th).
I have been fighting some kind of thing for almost a week now, but have been trying to get lots of sleep, drink lots of liquids and get rid of it. But instead I woke up this morning feeling worse. Mostly it's fatigue, achy joints, sore throat and an upset stomach. I made the wise choice not to push it and stay home. Since Oscar has a full schedule with studying for his certifications and we currently are without health insurance, it is important that I stay as healthy as possible. Should I still be germ-central, it is also important not to carry them to Lynn or Liz.
The wise choice is also a sad choice. I was looking forward to getting out, and visiting people I love. I am trying to look at the positive side of things, though. I could have felt fine, then gotten worse on the way or during the day and wound up really badly off the rest of the week or longer. This way I can rest and hopefully get over it faster. (I have a fragile immune system so as impatient as it makes me feel, I really need to be hyperfocused on my health to avoid going into a serious illness like pneumonia or a worsening infection.)
I have another big event where I MUST be later this month. My mom and dad celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary this year. We will be having an informal barbecue in their yard, and I promised to be there no matter what. I don't have anything scheduled after that, just in case it puts me in a recovery state for a few weeks afterward.
Anyway, today I will read, sleep and if I feel better/sharper perhaps I can swatch a bit for the new patterns.

I'm sorry your day didn't turn out as planned. Sometimes life is like that, and it always pisses me off. Keep that positive attitude at the ready --- so you can enjoy your mom and dad's special anniversary later this month.

Take care, Diana!

Wise choice you made. Now, for your folks anniversary -- You will be well ... You will be well ... You will be well ... You will be well.

You get the idea.
