Sick, again?

I caught that horrible flu my poor hubby had/has. Yes, he's still coughing a bit and really tired. He has been sick for over a week! I really thought I was going to be fine, but unfortunately, woke up sick on Sunday morning. I'm coughing up a lung (well, it feels that way, anyway) and just miserable. I had a lot of things I needed to do this week, so I was on the phone rearranging things.

I had a graduation meeting scheduled for Tuesday and knew Monday morning I probably wasn't going to be able to make it, but kept waiting throughout the day to see if I would get better. Nope. I had to call all the graduation families and tell them we would reschedule. I really thought we could do it next week, but now I'm wondering if I should wait until the next week. I just can't imagine at this point that I'm going to be well enough to do it next week. Thank goodness, it's April and it won't be putting us in a bad situation to wait an extra week to get together.

I also had two different doctor appointments set up that I had to reschedule. They weren't something that couldn't be put off either, so that was good. I guess more than anything, I'm really tired of being sick. This winter has been a horrible one for our family as far as sickness goes.

My son and I have been able to work on our Easter study this week. It's been such a blessing and we will probably finish it up after Easter (since I'm sick), but that's okay - the story of Jesus and his death and resurrection is a wonderful subject for any time!

I haven't been doing anything very exciting or fun - again, because I'm sick. Can you tell I'm more than frustrated with being sick? I tried to crochet some dish cloths, but I kept making errors and having to pull the stitches out. I finally gave up and decided it's probably best to wait until I'm well. I've been reading, which is always a lovely thing. I read this book

and it was really excellent. It's a suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It also has a side romance line (not sweetly sick) that you'll be rooting for, too. It's definitely a Christian suspense and it really does explain the Christian walk very well. In fact, when the heroine is explaining what Christianity means to her, she explains it in such a way that totally makes sense, without being condemning to the person she was witnessing to. I highly recommend this book - you'll really enjoy it.

I am now going to read a book that Glenn Beck recommended called, "5000 Year Leap". I will let you know how I liked it after I've read it. It looks very interesting, though!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter Week!!

God bless you - Julie
