"But I don't like being sick..."

Yesterday, due to the bad weather "we were suppose to have" the schools around here got out at 1:00. Which means, I got off work early too. Excited about my extra 31/2 hours I had just been granted, I first made a stop at the grocery store. We were out of everything, including milk and bread, so in case a big ice storm made it our way, I needed to be prepared. Cold rain and all, I had my bags in the trunk of the car and was headed home by 2:00.

Unloaded, changed into some "kick around in clothes" sat in my big comfy chair for just a minute to read a new magazine purchased, and next thing I know, it is two hours later. I had just taken a big 'ol nap. Hmm... I didn't remember being that tired. But whatever, a nap probably did me some good and now I would be ready to tackle some projects around the house...

No such luck. For all of a sudden I felt like I needed "another" nap. And then I was freezing, although I already had a long sleeved shirt, with a sweatshirt and sweatpants on and I had already turned the heat up... Then my stomach started to hurt and cramp and then...well let's just say that the potty and the trash can next to the potty became my best friends throughout the night. I was one sick gal!

I knew it was coming one of these days. With all the sick babies that had coughed in my face, snotted on my shirt, leaked on my pants and threw up "ALL OVER ME," I was bound to finally catch a little something. And catch it I did! Yuck!

As my sweet hubby, was tucking me into bed last night, covering me up with one more blanket, I was such a wuss and cried "I DON"T LIKE BEING SICK!" To which my hubby chuckled, "Mich, nobody likes being sick."

There you have it, the phrase of the day. There are plenty of things, we all don't want to do or go through, but unfortunately that is LIFE. Oh well, Here is hoping, I am on the mend, for I'm feeling much, much better, hoping I will be up for my hair appointment later in the day. (Priorities, people!!!) Here is hoping that this sickness has ran it's course and I'm done with it, until the next tummy bug makes it's way through town... "Bug, bug, go away, don't come again another day!!!! PLEASE!!!"

Hopefully and prayerfully, I will not have to play nurse to the rest of my family, in the next few days either...

Oh, and Mr. Weatherman, I think you were wrong again, for us anyway. Mom, Dad, you OK up there in your parts? I think you got all our snow...again.

That being said I have a prayer request that is near and dear to my heart. My mother-in-law is a breast cancer survivor. She has been going back faithfully, the last few years for her check ups and they have been fine. However, this last one, they discovered a mass in the opposite breast than last time. We are not sure what it is or what it means yet, but it is always a scary time. She goes this Friday for a biopsy, after that we will learn more. Please keep her in your prayers. She is keeping this situation in the Lord's hands, but it is still not easy to wait and wonder.

She is a reader of my blog and even likes reading your comments. If you would like to leave her a message, feel free. We appreciate your prayers.

I am praying for your Mother in law. May GOD heal her body, lead and guide the doctors, nurses, and staff that will be a part of her journey. May HE give her complete peace, comfort, and surround her with HIS love!

I also pray you feel better soon. As for the winter is at my house. Doug just let sitka out to play in it and he came in and shook off a few inches at my feet.

We got all your part of the snow and more! This morning there must be about 10 inches in the yard. You remember the stumps out front, and the flower beds. They are "fast asleep" under a "blanket of white". Beautiful, but facing another Sunday's closing. That's three this year.

Genella, we are praying for you. Let us know how it goes.


Jim said...

Sorry, I clicked before I finished. I do hope you are feeling better today. Praying for you, Babe!

Hubby's right! Who likes being sick. It is the most inconvenient thing that could happen to you. An inconvenience to yourself and those who had to care for you. But the feeling of others mothering you is great isn't it? You know how much you are loved! lol

Hey when there's a cold bug going around wear a mask so that you don't catch it, or spread it.

I send my prayers to the LORD for peace, love and healing for your mum-in-law. Bless you and family.
