Apologies…

It’s the start of a new week and I’m hoping for a better one than last. I started to go downhill midweek, and by Friday was feeling pretty awful. Having what I thought was a summer cold was a new experience for me. I have never been sick in the summer.

By Saturday morning I was so bad, my husband had to take me to one of those walk-in clinic things, These places are gold! We were there before the doors opened and were the first ones in. I left with a prescription for antibiotics for a sinus infection—one of the worst I’ve ever had. It made all the difference being able to get those doses in me before Monday when I would have been able to get a regular doctor appointment. I’m still on the mend, but so much better than I was Friday and over the weekend.

My fever broke Saturday night and my throat is no longer raw. I no longer have to keep a box of Kleenex by my side and am no longer sneezing a over a dozen times a hour. Nights are still rough with a developing cough, but I’m starting to feel like myself again. I’ve realized the older I get, the harder it is to bounce back from a cold. Ugh! When did that happen?

I couldn’t even bring myself to read (and I am in the middle of an EXCEPTIONAL book…check my sidebar), and spent most of my time sleeping, wrapped up in a blanket, or trying to focus on TV. I did watch one move—A Quiet Place—which I really liked. A very intense story,  but for those of you who have seen it, am I the only one confused by the ending? (By the way, don’t ever watch a movie with emotional scenes when you don’t feel good. I spent as much time crying as I did blowing my nose from the cold).

Anyway, this post is to offer my apologizes because I know I missed checking in with a lot of my favorite, regular bloggers. I hope to be back in regular shape this week. It really sucks being sick, but it’s ten times worse in the summer.

Here’s hoping all of you are doing well!
