Louisiana here. Hope this finds you well. I am not doing too good today: woke up with my stamach in knots; spent a good portion of the morning (until just recently) in the restroom. Just took some medicine to control my intestinal problems and am waiting for it to take effect. Don't need to go into any more detail than that.
Hopefully that will take care of things. Bill got the kids up and running for school; the only ones home are myself and my parents (as well as the animals). It is so nice not to have any distractions other than my personal issues; these peaceful/quiet days are a rare thing in my house.
The only one keeping me company at the moment: my little Pomeranian, "Cajun Gold", who is lying next to me, looking at me all worried for her mistress. She knows I am sick and she is scared for me. Poor little thing!
Meanwhile, I called work earlier this morning, told them I would not be in. They understood. My boss said thare's a little virus going around, so he told me to drink plenty of fluids and get as much rest as possible. He said to take a couple of days off, since I have been doing a lot of overtime; I could use a break.
Didn't argue with him there! :)
I was fine last night when we went to church. Wonder if it was something I ate last night prior to church. We had fried chicken, broccoli and carrot salad with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, scallped potatoes, and for dessert, cherry cobbler. Hmm. Don't know what set my stomach off, but as long as it stays quiet or I don't have to go to the restroom, I'll be okay. I'll just stay in bed and veg. LOL
Let my parents take care of the kids who still remain at home; don't need them getting sick as well, especially Jodie, Todd, or Johnathon! That would be the LAST thing we'd need!!
The weather is getting cooler. We had severe storms yesterday with a lot of heavy rain and high winds of over 50 miles an hour. No damage at our end (for once!!), but I am sure there were spots that did have damage from the storms that rolled through. Next week, on the 23rd, fall will officially begin. I can't wait; we can use a break from the haat and/or the threat of severe storms day after day after day!!
Work is going well; no problems there, except for working gobs of hours, so I've been bringing home more money. Too bad it can't last: bills to pay, groceries to get, kids to take care of, taking care of any unforseen medical situations that tend to pop up when we are least expecting them to. Also have to set some money aside for tithing to my church; I do that every week, without fail.
God has blessed me (and my family) tremendously; it's time to give some BACK to Him, as a way of saying thanks and praising Him. God has been very good to our family, and I am indeed grateful.
Pray it continues!
Maybe today while I am in bed (and/or not sleeping), I can get some of my e-mails answered. I have a ton of letters to write. I can also work some more on my new book I am writing.
Any other time I will probably be sleeping, so I can get over this thing. Just pray that Bill or the kids (or my parents) don't get this bug.
I would greatly appreciate it! Until later, this is Louisiana Sandusky signing off! Time to lie down and get some needed sleep! Maybe this is God's way of telling me to slow down and/or take it easy!
Take care and God bless!
~Love, your friend in Tennessee, Louie. :)
