I'm alive!

So, last I left you, I was going into a relaxing weekend.  I enjoyed the heck out of the Ms. Mature Irving Pageant.  It totally rocked!!  Saturday I found a great dress at the vintage store.  Sunday, BFF & I took in a great play. 

Then I woke up on Monday feeling like I was run over by a truck.  It was crazy!  I spent the better part of three days in bed.  It is the first time in my career that I can remember taking off three days of work unplanned.  I went to the doctor on Monday and got some antibiotics for a sinus infection.  But I just kept getting worse.  On Wednesday, they tested for strep and the flu, but felt that it was just a horrific sinus infection.  Two doses of antibiotics, a steroid shot and a round of oral steroids later...I'm actually on the mend.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not 100%, but I am at least seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.  This weekend should be a truly relaxing one, so I hope that I am at least able to be productive next week.  I'm guessing that it will take another week before I can get myself back into my normal routine.  This is NOT what I expected my October to be.  But in all honesty, I don't think I have been my total self for a while.  I think this little booger has been waiting in the wings for several weeks and finally just took me down.  I hear you, little booger!!

Hope all is well out there.  I hope to catch up with you all while I'm sitting still over the weekend.  :) 

Big hugs!

I hate that you are sick. I do think that infection was telling you to slow down and take a break. Get some rest beautiful. I need you to get better. I miss you.

Miss you Hero. So glad you're on the mend. Perhaps your summer of fun and all the workin out and just being fabulous you have caught up to your body needing some time off. Maybe your resistence was a bit low.
