What a week this was! My husband and I had a whole day alone on
Monday, ya, it was a good day!
But you know , I was starting to feel a little funky. But it was all good.
Despite the strange feeling that was coming over me I decided to drag the husband to the thrift store anyway!
I was so glad that I did! We found some fabulously funky mirrors
that will go perfectly on our living room walls when we paint and redo!
Check this out. Please keep in mind that taking a photo of mirrors
was a bit tricky, so I just hope that you can see the detail!
They are soooo retro-ly beautiful and were only one dollar a piece!
This next find, the husband and I found a few weeks ago. Let me tell you,
he is so looking forward to hanging this very heavy mirror over the fireplace!
Well this should prove to be a fun project! O.K. so now that my throat feels like it's closing up on me, I shall move along! Let's see, where were we?
The husband left on Tuesday and I felt worse! In the meantime, my Katie still cannot breath out of her right nostril. However she is feeling better and here is the news that you've been waiting for...
Drum roll please........
Katie passed her Illinois Drivers Permit Test with 100%!!!!
And now she wants to drive!
I cannot put into words my feelings about this.
Pride for her and fear for me, I suppose!
This weekend we are going out to my mothers house for hopefully what will be the last time, to pack the rest of her things up.
The town she lived in is the perfect little town to drive around and around in. Not much traffic and a large parking lot. If Katie is good to her mother between now and then, perhaps I will take her driving if I am feeling well enough by then.
I have, so to speak, started holding the car keys over her head as an incentive to get off of her butt and help me more around here.
So far, so good. After all, driving is a privilege, not a right. Especially with my car!
If any one has an old beater out there that they would like to donate, please let me know!
O.K. so Wednesday was bad, I was even sicker. I just laid around all day.
I really wasn't able to do anything else. I did make a doctors appointment for Katie as she had been on antibiotics for several days and her right nostril was still completely blocked. So I called the doctor for an appointment for her.
Thursday was even worse. I had a fever, splitting headache well you name it and I felt it! I picked Katie from school, this in it self proved very interesting as I was extremely dizzy! Whooo!
As we were driving to the doctor, Katie commented on how lousy a job I was doing driving! Ya think! It was all I could do to keep from passing out! She said " Your not doing to good with your braking there mom, I could probably do better than that!", to which I replied
" You are probably right!".
And yes she wanted to drive but she hasn't driven in any traffic yet, so my answer was a firm yet sickly sounding " No "! Like I really wanted to deal with that while I could barely hold my head up!
So into the doctors office we go. The news is not so good. Katie may have a polyp in her right sinus. So we have to go and see an ENT doctor.
We are familiar with them both here in our town as my husband has had two nasal surgeries on polyps himself. He prefers one doctor over the other but the other is gentler, so we will have to take Katie there.
Hopefully, all she has is a severe sinus infection and won't need the surgery. It is not a pleasant thing to go through, it's really awful.
So we need to pray that it's just an infection, as that surgery has a painful and nasty recovery to go through. And I really don't want her to have to go through that.
As for me, I have an upper respiratory/sinus infection. Got my self some antibiotics so I'm good to go. Well not quite but I will be soon I hope.
I am sooo behind on housework, church work and haven't cleaned my people's house in two weeks!
I did warn them that good help was hard to find these days! They don't care, it's just more work for me next week!
And so today when I woke up, I felt much better. However I am still having difficulty breathing well. This is tempting me to get up and do things but I know all to well what a mistake this would be.
I hate sitting around, even when sick. But this hit me hard and fast,
so I will try to be a good girl and give myself one more day to feel even better.
It will however be a challenge.
Wish me luck, will ya?
