Where have I been?

It has been a long, long month! I haven’t really been on social media which is REALLY nice. So, what have I been up to? I have been sick! I went tot he doctor earlier in the month because i have had an on and off again cough for probably 6 months now. It is a pesky cough and really horrible but I only went to the doctor once or twice for it because I really am not a fan of doctor. Either way I went earlier in the month because it I had the worst pains in my ribs. When I would breathe, laugh, talk, MOVE…. it all hurt. I guess I fractured two ribs from coughing so hard (little stress fractures). They prescribed me antibiotics (that I told them I was allergic too, but obviously didn’t listen) and I itched and scratched for 10 days. On the 10th day I started to loose my voice and my cough got worse…. This happened to be the day of the Winter Ball so I had so much to do… I couldn’t take it by Monday so i went back in… SURPRISE! I had pneumonia and two more stress fractures. I had to take 3 days off work (I should have taken more) and now I am almost down with my second round of antibiotics and still feel sick… 22 days of antibiotics… bluck! I do admit I have new symptoms though so I might be getting better.


You know what the best part of this whole thing was, MY DADDY CAME TO TOWN! It was great to spend time with him. I miss my family in Chicago and excitedly I will be flying over either the beginning of April or May.

Also, I guess a main reason I have not been on the computer was my power cord died…. Thanks to a smart man, a pen, and floral tape I am back to being plugged in… 

So today on my day off… I want to do nothing. Which will drive me crazy!

Through all my pains and illnesses, I still love my life and the blessings I have in it. Life is good. God is good!

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
