And still the cold lingers on. I don’t know why it is that when you get a cold on vacation, they just seem to last forever. We went on a Mediterreanean cruise (many years ago) for our 25th wedding anniversary and on a bus tour, a lovely gentleman coughed actual phlegm on the back of Rich’s neck..We caught the worst colds from that, and mine lasted for a month…and I’m not making it up. I really hope that this one doesn’t last that long, but it’s really holding on. I probably told you all of the preventative measures I took, but of course, they didn’t work.
Since we’ve been home, I have yet to wear real clothes…I’ve only had two showers in a week, and went from one set of pajamas to another after those showers…and I feel really pathetic for doing this, but don’t have the energy for anything more. Valentine’s Day was a big celebration. We ate chicken noodle soup and crackers…oh yeah, we live exciting lives.
My sister fell last week and has to have surgery on her wrist this Thursday…I had bought a diamond painting of Mother Mary (my sister is Catholic,) and I thought she would really like the painting. I started working on it yesterday and might have it done and sent to her in time for her to have it when she gets home from the hospital. Her mail service is lousy, but maybe this time, mail will get there in two days, like it’s supposed to…I’ll be sure to post a photo of the Mary diamond painting before I mail it to her. That’s the extent of the excitement we’ve had since we’ve been home. Wait, Rich did take Bella for grooming, and the groomer decided she needed to have her hair cut relatively short. I’m not sure why he did that, but she has a ton of hair, and even cut shorter (for a golden retriever,) she’s a big fuzz ball…Cute, and fuzzy…
I guess that wraps up my week…Let’s hope next week is better.
