Last week I was terribly sick. It started with fever and very slowly progressed into strep throat and sinusitis. Cody was wonderfully helpful to me and I have discovered that he enjoys taking care of me when I am sick=). Don’t get me wrong he was glad when I could start getting around again…especially in the kitchen. As I laid in sleepless pain a few nights, I realized how much I take my body for granted. I made a resolve to be better at using my time more wisely and using my physical and mental abilities to their fullest potential! I have done well so far, and I hope I have the will to keep on keepin’ on!
Luckily after I went to the doctor I was well enough to go to St. George with Cody. My Uncle Jeff, who is a wonderful mechanic and man, helped Cody to put together two new carburetors for Cody’s VW van. I was able to shop with my mom, sister and my niece and nephew. I was able to find a new decoration for my western themed room, and some other treasures. I love getting more with less!
Cody was able to play his favorite sport the other week. His high school has an annual alumni football game and Cody played well…so I hear. As I was sitting visiting with friends, Cody made a touchdown and some other key plays of the game. I attempted to pretend that I had seen them all, but it ended with a disappointed look from Cody! He knows when I lie 😉 He was terribly sore afterwards and his ankle was killing him. I chuckled at the fact that he was assigned to the “old man” team. My husband is very trim and fit, but I think that he has forgotten that he will eventually get older. =) We had some friends and family over afterwards for root beer floats and smores. It was a late night for me. O, the glory days.
P.S. I harvested from my garden yesterday!!!! A zucchini grew to adulthood, and we will be able to eat something that I grew. I know I may be making it sound monumental, but for someone like me that struggles to keep anything alive, I am very excited!
