Do you ever get the feeling the gods and goddesses are testing you? Today I felt like I was being tested for patience and grace at every turn. It was a day of E-V-E-R-Y L-I-T-T-L-E T-H-I-N-G going wonky. And I hate to complain because when I really examine my life it's a blessed one. But some days, let me tell you, are never ending streams of gunk. I mean, the only thing that didn't happen today was that I didn't get hit on the head by a falling anvil from the Acme Anvil Company. On the positive side, Riley went back to school and stayed the whole day. I went back to work and stayed the whole day too. I'm still pretty nauseous, have trouble eating anything and keeping it down. A colossal drag because I do so love to eat. I am a little more clear-headed and am hoping for a better day tomorrow. Here's a shot of my phantom boy. He is looking so pale since he's been sick, I'm happy he's starting to get back out in the fresh air.

Happy to hear you two are getting back to normal (whatever that is) ... feel much, much better soon!

And why is it the gods seem to test us even more when we’re feeling crummy? Or are we just more attuned to all the “gunk” happening when we’re sick?

Oh dear, I do hope you feel better soon. Glad Riley is on the mend. Hang in there. BTW if you don't hear from me in a little while, my beloved Mac has gone in for a service, sob, so now I have to resort to DH or the DS's computers, like I have a chance of getting on theirs! So don't worry, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, literally.
