Friends, it's been a day

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Christmas Craft Fair in our village today. DW booked a table to sell her beadwork. My job? Porter and back-up memory (between us we doubt we possess one full memory ; )

That meant leave the house too early to Spark, but since the fair closes at 4:00 pm, I figured I'd be able to devote the entire evening to Sparking. There are *so* many Sparkers I want to catch up with.

By the end of the fair, I wondered if I'd eaten something contaminated for lunch--headache and threatening nausea. By the time we got home it included chills--*really* shivery chills. Slept under a down comforter for an hour or so and woke up just knowing I'm in for a bout of the 'flu. Dang-it! I kept *meaning* to go get the flu shot : (

So, solution: shamelessly treat the symptoms with OTC meds tonight hoping to get a good sleep and hope it was a quick and dirty bout because tomorrow I'm leading the service at church and then it's back to the Craft Fair for 4 hours or so. And still no time for a good Sparking : (

This to shall pass, but I really wanted it to pass me by!

    Hope y'all sold a lot of beadwork at the craft fair. Are you feeling any better today or did you suffer more flu symptoms? I hope things went well at the morning service and you are feeling terrific again. emoticon

    Get well soon, my friend. Have a great church service. Maybe take some hand sanitizer with you to the fair this time?

  Aw, shoot! I hope you're feeling better right away. It is never convenient to get "under the weather." But fight the good fight and build up he antibodies against the next wave of "bugs."

Hang in there...We'll be around when you get back to Sparking.
