Flu Season

So I can definitely tell that flu season is here. I have been saying for the past month that I was going to go get a flu shot. Of course, Mrs. Procrastination here has not done it! I started feeling bad a few days ago and called to schedule an appointment with the doctor and of course they are so busy I can't go until Tuesday! I was running fever today so I pretty much laid in bed watching movies and eating ice. I really hope I start feeling better soon!

Work has been so stressful...I am almost to the point where I am ready for me and Daniel to move as soon as he graduates. I feel like that is kinda running from my problems but it has been crazy! I just wish he was here! I guess being sick doesn't help my tollerance level!

On a brighter note...I think I may be flying for the first time in my life! SCARY!! I realized that Thanksgiving ran into Daniel's graduation week so I am going to drive to Kansas and spend Thanksgiving with the in-laws and then we will fly out Wednesday to go to Newport. I am so excited!!! I can't wait to visit with them and go see Daniel! He sent me an email today telling me that he got a 98 on one of his tests which doesn't suprise me...he always does well on tests. Hopefully our kids will get that from him!!! =]

Well, I think I hear cough syrup and my pillow calling my name!!

It shouldn't suprise me!

So this week has been one of the worst weeks in a very long time, and started on Saturday. I was about to leave to go shopping for my last minute ritual whites for the weekend when my aunt called and told me that my Nannie (grandmother) passed out at my cousin's shower and hit her head extremely hard on the tile floor at the church. She said that they were bringing her to the hospital. Now, they live in an extremely small town and the local hospital is not the best place. A better hospital is in a city about 45 mins north of them and of course they had no available rooms because after the hurricanes it they had to evacuate patients from the costal areas and move them north and most of those patients still have not been able to go back home. So she had to stay at the hospital for 3 nights which was miserable for her. I had to call her every few mintues to keep her updated on the LSU game and the UGA vs. Bama game! She is doing MUCH better now and it at home which is a huge relief.

So just as I thought nothing could be worse than that....I am getting ready to go to work on Monday and I can not find my keys! So I do not panic just yet, grab the spare set, and run out the door so I would not be late for work. I searched the office just to make sure they were not there and of course they weren't. I searched my car and Daniel's car, still nowhere to be found. I have searched every inch of the house and I still can not find them!!! I do not understand how I could lose a set of keys that have like 8 key chains, plus 5 or 6 keys, and a card holder key chain!!!

Thankfully I received four letters from Daniel which have really helped put me in a better mood. It's times like this that I am going completely CrAzY that I am glad he is not here because I wouldn't want to stress him out. I miss him so much it's not even funny. This week has been one of the hardest since he has been gone...I swear it seems like there is always a week that make it seem worse than the one before it that was so horrible. When it rains, it pours!!! Only a little while longer until he will be back home...I can not wait!!!

So on a brighter note...I finished two of my books! I think I am starting to become a big fan of Nicholas Sparks. I am going to pick up his newest book that was released yesterday, today after I get off work. I dropped off Daniel's car at the handwash car place today and I wasn't prepared for the price, but they do a good job so it is worth it I guess. Hopefully the end of this week will start looking up soon!!!
