It's Been a Long Time.

Hello friends,

Just thought I would drop in and let you all know what has been going on in my world lately. I have been quite slack, again, at posting. I didn't realize it had been over a week! Gees. However, feel free to ignore this post if you don't want to hear the ins and outs of my life. I know it can get quite boring and repetitive.

First of all, my nerves have been bothering me again. I just have that nervous, irritated feeling that won't go away. Then, last Thursday, my husband's great-grandfather died. He was 89 years old and sharp as a tack. Friday and Saturday were spent at the funeral home and graveyard. I know that sounds quite depressing, but on the contrary, it was quite nice to have all of the family together for a few days. I laughed so hard that my jaws hurt. My husband's family is quite a hoot, I must say.

I was overjoyed to be off work Monday. We never close the shop for Labor Day. This year was a first. I spent the day doing little projects around the house, getting the yard mowed and digging potatoes.

The past two days have been a little bit of a different story. I haven't been feeling so good. My allergies had been bothering me, along with my nerves, and then (seemingly out of nowhere) my chest started feeling a little funny. I hate to be a hypochondriac, but it really has me worried. I've been trying to closely monitor how I'm feeling, just in case I end up needing to go to the doctor. I don't want to overreact. I don't want to under react, either!

I have several new things I want to share with you. Hopefully I will be feeling better and have my act together by next week. Until then, I hope you all have a great weekend. Hugs to you.

xoxo ~Jo~ xoxo

Oh my! No wonder you're not feeling right -- I'm sorry to hear about your husband's great Grandfather. But, I do enjoy the celebration of his life in such a positive way. There is no doubt that mourning will occur, but we must celebrate at the same time.

I hope all is well with you -- when I'm not feeling right I consume local honey, drink plenty of tea, and try to sleep 8 hrs. per night. I hope that you are just perhaps worn out, and that you will be back to yourself soon :)

hugs back to you*
