After a third visit in as many weeks to my Dr. I am finally begining to feel a bit better. Two infections, and the flu left me in an awful state this month. So far my pharmacy bill alone has been $150.00 this month, heaven knows what I will owe the Dr. after the insurance is done with their part. BUT Tama-Flu works, and I am now on the mend.

Honestly thought this weekend that I might be on my way out.

The upside of all of this is that I took today off to get better and I am taking tomorrow off to rest as well. I rarely, if ever take time to get well, which is proably why I was sick for a month.

So, here's to health and taking care of ourselves.

The snow fell wiping everything clean.

The snow fell wiping everything clean. When I looked out my bathroom window last night the snow had fallen in my woods, dusting my woods with soft white glitter. I raced back to bed, and snuggled under the covers and felt warm and content. I fell into the deepest slumber, and dreamed of snow, of whiteness covering everything. Wherever the snow fell, it was not cold, but warm, and instantly everything around was covered and wiped clean. The snow fell, not only outside, but inside, in my bedroom. Everywhere I looked was white, good, pure clean. My dresser was white, the knobs were white, my bed was white, and I was covered in a white down blanket of snow. Joyful at this newness and cleanliness, in my dream I jumped out of my bed, but as soon as my feet landed on the floor the snow scattered and everything was the way it always is. The antique dresser was again brown and the hardwood floors brown. The snow began to evaporate, and I was left in my room, weeping, wanting the clean new start of the fresh snow. I must have awakened a bit then, because I remember feeling miffed that I can’t seem to get a fresh start, but too tired to comprehend anything, I drifted back off to sleep, chasing the eternal snow.

Baby news/Children news

Although being laid low by the flu since Friday, I have some good news to share. Lucas Carter Mayhew will make his way into the world sometime around July 1, 2006. He will be joining big sister Kaley Brinn Mayhew and his mommy Corrie, and daddy Shannon, in their new house.

That's right folks, It's a boy. Corrie and Shannon found out Tue. that the baby is a boy. They will be closing on their house on Mar. 1 and moving in then. I am so happy for them all the way around. Corrie has had a couple more migraines but all in all is doing well with the pregnancy.

Daughter Laura is sick again, but has a wonderful husband to help her. I went over a couple of weekends ago and they gave me the loveliest birthday celebration that I have had in some time. It really was a great day/weekend.

Son Paul is still in the Air Force in Utah, battling blizzards and working in the Haz-Mat department.

My family is my joy and happiness.

Another Friday.

Another Friday has come, and they are again predicting nasty weather for the sunny south. I awoke this morning feeling worse, even though I am on macrobid. If this does not quit, I shall be back at the Dr. again. As soon as I post this, I am headed home for the comfort of my bed, with all of my 7th grade essays in tow. I will work some on them, we have Monday off, but tomorrow is reserved for sleeping late and creating. I will post anything I write.

Until then,

A poem from the bard for Valentines Day,

Happy Valentines day to all.

Sonnet 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
