I didn't expect to be gone so long, but wouldn't you know it, on Thanksgiving night I got sick. I had gotten some type of intestinal bug. While at my brother's house I started feeling chilly, which, when that happens, I know that I'm getting sick. So, me and the family left to come home, but on the way home i was feeling sick to my stomach. By the time we arrived home I was soooo cold that I went to my bed with my coat, hat and gloves on. I pulled the blanket on me and I was still cold. Meghan went to get another blanket for me and she put that on me and I was still cold!! Let's just say, it was downhill from there. It took me a good 3 1/2 weeks just to get somewhat back to normal. I took a leave of absence from my volunteering, but I'm trying to decide when's the best time to go back.
As I was getting better, the day before Christmas Donald came down with what I had. It didn't stop him from enjoying Christmas, though.
We had a good new years. Meghan was with us, but Adam had to work.
January has really claimed itself...we've had snow, winds and temps as low as 5 degrees. The poor dog; she hasn't been able to go outside and run to her hearts content like in the summer time. It's basically go out and come in. Then lay around the house all day as there's nothing for her to do.
Little by little, I'm decluttering and organizing. Years, when I was having depression really bad, I had let things get really out of control. I'm happy now that I'm tackling it. Although one might not be able to see what's being done, I can see it and it's exciting to have things organized again. Yes, it's going to take me awhile, maybe even this whole year to get things done, but I am keeping my eyes on the end result.
So this is the a short update on me. Next post will not be as long!
