Oh Friends, I know it’s been like a month. I’m sorry. But see here’s what happened:
Have you heard of Influenza A? So I go home to visit my family the weekend of March 9th for my birthday ( march 13th in case you are sad you missed it) and my brother-in-law is kind of sick and there are kids there are well. Within a matter of days, my mom, both sisters and both nieces and me were all down sick. My one niece tested positive for influenza A at the Dr’s office, so I’m applying that diagnosis to myself as well.
I literally thought I was dying. All I did was cough and complain and as women of a certain age know, when you cough, other inconvenient things happen as well. I was mixing things you really shouldn’t mix to try to sleep and the cough was still breaking through. I’m so glad we live in a world where you can many things delivered. The coughing and wheezing lasted like 3 full weeks. I had to cancel my annual Birthday Extravaganza with my bitches. I will say these things now – blue cough medicine is magic, I fully endorse Vick’s Vapo-Rub as it provided me with much relieve and I’m still not 100% sold on getting a flu shot, however, I will update my tetanus booster this year. I’m not anti-vac, just anti flu shot for me – but that’s a topic for a whole different day.
But the good news is I’m all better now and have spent the last week working on redecorating my bedroom. There are three or four key parts to this project – on being the redoing of an ugly dresser. I am kicking myself right now for not taking a before picture but check out the after! It started out as a plain beigeish dresser and I painted it grey,wallpapered the fronts, sides and top and changed out the knobs. Not to pat myself on the back too much, but isn’t it SO pretty???
Now I just need to finish rearranging my furniture, hang my feather light and I think it will a Pinterest worthy bedroom. And have no fear, more pictures will follow.
