Recently I journeyed to California for my sister’s most momentous birthday. I won’t tell which birthday, but it ended in a zero. And for once my family kept its collective mouth shut and I showed up at her party as a complete surprise. You should have seen the look on her face. So totally worth it.
However, I caught a cold on the plane on the way to Cali. It wasn’t too bad until I was on my way home. I now know why babies cry during a plane’s descent. My ears were killing me, I thought my head was going to explode and I wanted to burst into tears myself.
By the time I got home I was exhausted. I put it up to the travel and I went right to bed. However, I stayed in bed the next day as well. Hmmmmm, maybe there was something else going on. When I felt like I had rubber bands around my lungs, I decided there was definitely something else going on. I think I have sinusitis. I won’t gross you out with the details, but now that I am treating the sinusitis symptoms I am starting to feel better.
The real bummer is I can’t get to the gym, which believe it or not, I enjoy. I really enjoy the benefits of going to the gym like a strong body, flexibility, stamina & eating whatever I like (subject to my ongoing dietary restrictions of no gluten & no dairy.) I took a walk around the block this morning and it was about all I could muster. But let’s hope it’s a beginning and I am on the road to a speedy recovery.
All that aside, I am so happy it is back to school time. That means it time for cooler weather, football and beautiful fall colors.
I also am over-the-moon with all the school supplies. I try to stock up on everything I could possibly use during the year.
However, if you work in close quarters with other folks, particularly if they are parents, have you noticed that once school is in everyone in the office gets sick. Yup. All those new germs being passed back and forth between the kiddos somehow make it into the workplace. So take all your vitamins, get lots of rest and do whatever else you can to avoid the autumn cold/respiratory infections.
But maybe, on my next trip to Cali, which is in three weeks, there won’t be so many little germ factories on the plane. One can hope, right?
Thanks for stopping by.
