Woke up sat with a scratchy throat. I knew it wouldn't be long till the full blown anarchy in my body kicked in. Untill then, I would enjoy my saturday out.

It was a beautiful sunny day and I was looking forward to getting a nice housewarming gift for one of my closest friends. We were going over to see the house they just moved into in Jan. We also had another purpose, to baptise thier new bbq with a yummy steak supper.

Francine is the friend who came and helped me by staying here the weekend right after I got out of the hospital as Chris had to work. She hadn't seen me since that time. We live over an hour apart so we don't see eachother often.

When she saw me should couldn't believe the change already. I am now at 39lbs lost...It does show now and it's been fun finding clothes in the closet that I haven't been able to wear for years. Loose feels good..even baggy in the ass looks good to me lol.......I digress..

Anyway.. earlier, Chris and I went to Pier One Imports...I love alot of their stuff. We found some great black metal candle bases and got 3, (big, med and small) and bought some awesome textured cylinder candles to fit on each. The big one was atleast a foot high and 6 inches across with 3 wicks in it..with the other 2 graduating smaller in size. Made for a really nice grouping. Oh and they smell devine, (sable) was the scent.

It was so nice to see their house and spend time with my friend. They have a really nice little house perfect for the 2 of them. We had a great supper and gabbed till it was time to get home for the sitter.

When we did, my sitter mentioned that, in the last 2 yrs since she has worked for us, it was the first time I had gone out to spend supper or an evening with friends. She was right....although we will miss Chris' old schedule of working weekends...it does make a difference for others that we will be free to go out weekends now.

So sundays dawns with a more then scratchy throat. I try to head this thing off at the pass with my inhalers...only used when sick. Anarchy is brewing for sure..spend sunday night up coughing...finally slept around 6am monday so got up too late to get in to the clinic...still hoping I could avoid the unavoidable...

Bronkitis with a side of sinus infection for good measure ..I just knew it. Always all or nothing with me lol.

Got in to see the doc today..to have that confirmed. So atleast I am being medicated. Whoop Yay...cough hack cough.

I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I know how much being sick sucks especially since the weather is starting to get nice.

I'm so glad you got out and spent the evening with your friend. It is so nice to do and we don't do it often enough.

Congrats on almost 40 pounds. WooHoo!


Feel better soon!
