Not What I Expected

Our weekend began like many others. The 3 of us had dinner out and watched a movie when we came home. Alan made a fire in the fireplace. It was a good evening.

Saturday, I did a few chores around the house. I went to the post office and the store. I picked up ingredients for dinner and started the crock pot.
Out of the blue, it began to happen....that little sneaky feeling of..."Wow, could I be getting sick?" Surely not...
It was true though, and don't you HATE when that happens?
It's just some weird virus I picked up. :(

It made me miss church, lunch with the family, gathering with our Sunday night small group. It made me have a really boring day and a couple of restless nights.
I hope it's on it's way out.

I do always try to keep it in perspective. There are many people who are much sicker, or going through some really tough things. I'm thankful that my virus is but a blip on the screen.

Alan took a picture of me on the couch, in a blanket, remote control in hand. He just wanted a photo of it. This snippet is all I am willing to share, because I looked...Sick. Trust me.

Here is a photo from Saturday evening, during the time when I felt myself beginning to decline. Candy Land is one of my favorite games to play with Jadyn.

So that was my boring weekend, so not what I expected. Here's hoping that it's a much better week! :)

Sorry you were sick- hope you are on the mend now! I have been having that feeling, too but it is not turning into anything. Hope it stays away- I hate it when days, especially weekends are ruined.

Bless you!
