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.
