One day at a time.

It was a good choice that I didn't attend the Baby Shower Thursday ( at my own house ), because I was starting to come down with a cold. I felt better yesterday, still didn't leave the house until the evening. It was also Jeff's birthday yesterday and I felt bad that I couldn't do much. Lucky for me, Amy and the girls came over and made a cake, and decorated the house and wrapped packages. So by the time he got home, we had a nice dinner, cake and a real party waiting for him. Thank you again Amy, for pulling off one more party successfully!

We were going to go to a movie, but forgot to go early enough ( it is Memorial Day weekend ), so we ended up just going to the Book Store so I didn't have to walk much. Still by 9:00pm Jeff could tell that I was starting to ache again and the chills were coming back. I was completely worn out hardly without doing anything! Discouraging!
I came home and went right to bed, no blog writing, shoot ...I didn't even was my face ( now I know there will be aging ramifications from that ) but it was all I could do to crawl in bed. I was asleep before 10:00 pm and Lee woke me up at 10:30 this morning, to see if I was ok? (Obviously they don't ever see me sleep that long!) So I am up and still feeling a bit weak, just going to stay low AGAIN today, but if I can keep it from getting really sick, I need to do whatever it takes.

I hope Jeff had a wonderful Birthday, they seem to not be such a big deal as  you get older. But I did want him to remember how much we loved him and how grateful he is a part of our family! He is a great man, I am so glad that he is mine! 


After reading this quote today, I realized I need to not be discouraged, but just try harder.

"Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."  ~ Winston Churchill

"And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." ~ Abraham Lincoln
