Boy, have I been sick lately! I am feeling much better, thank goodness, but only after I went into a semi-comatose state yesterday (Saturday). I was so tired, I couldn't see straight. The problem with being sick and having three kids is that those kids get sick too and keep you from getting proper rest. Klara would be the main culprit last week in the "let's keep mommy awake" game. She was really sick with croup and I know the medications riled her up, but good grief! One night, she was up until 2:00 a.m. hopping around and bouncing off the couch and acting like a nut. I finally had to give her a stern talking to and a good marching upstairs before she would finally give up the ghost.
Saturday morning, when Rich got in from work, I was fried. I was crying over every little thing and was just so tired I couldn't think. He told me to go upstairs and go to sleep. Oh! This man is my hero! I went upstairs, as ordered, and I don't remember anything until 7 pm that night! I slept ALL DAY and it felt darned good! Rich said he checked on me many times and that I didn't move AT ALL the entire time. Now that is tired!
I got up today and felt much better. I am still coughing and such, but that takes a bit to clear up. I had more energy and even fixed a large breakfast. I am a pretty good cook, but one thing I have never been good at making is homemade biscuits. They always turn out as hard as a brickbat. Today, I used this recipe and the family raved! I highly recommend it! They were soft, tender, and delicious!
After trying to catch up on a few household chores, I made homemade lasagna for dinner and we watched Extreme Home Makeover. It is nice to start feeling better again, and I think my family's stomach's agree, hahaha...
I have had a lot of time to think about different things that have been on my mind, what with all this down time, and I am content to have some answers. After praying and taking the time to reflect on the problems, I have now found answers that I can live with. It's amazing how the answers don't seem so obvious when you are too busy to stop and talk to God. I feel relieved and at peace with the decision I have made and I think it will be for the best. I know this all sounds cryptic, but it's really not all that serious. Just something that has been weighing on my mind lately. Not to worry!
Well, I suppose I should get some sleep tonight so that I feel even better tomorrow! I hope to write more then. Take care!
