twas a week before christmas:
Sunday, December 19, 2010
for the last 4 days i have been sick with a cold, flu , croop. what ever you want to call it, i had it and still do. here i sit looking at a empty undecorated tree, no baked goods for when my son arrives from chicago. i have refused to leave the house i refuse to spread this on to any unaware person. you see i never get sick, ever!! i am very good about washing my hands ,and using the wipes at grocery stores to clean carts before i push them and i have just been a lucky person when it comes to being Ill.
so heres my story. even though when i start coughing and cannot stop, and runny nose and splitting head ache at times i still continued with my exercise. i hauled out my mini trampoline and placed it where i could hang on to the counter and i walked slowly but surely, and i layed on the floor and did leg lifts and sit ups very slow. you see i didn't want to let my team down, i didn't want to not do what i signed up to do in my challenge. but thats not what i wanted to write about, i wanted to tell you how my neighbors all 3 familys jumped into help me, one neighbor walked boo everyday and she also hand delivered my xmas cards here in the park. my 2nd neighbor made me dinner and soup and brought me honey and cough drops and the third neighbor did the driving and took over my errands. i put everything on the lanai and shut my door and they came as far as the lanai and i never transfered any germs to them. my point is i have fantastic friends, both online and in person, i recieved nice get wells from spark,and generous help here at home.today i feel human tomorrow i am going back out into the real world.just wanted to say this christmas i am blessed, so very blessed thank you all very much!!
