I felt so bad for Wayne because I am not the type to say "do this and do that" but I had no choice and had him running back and forth to get things for me and help me out all night Friday and all day Saturday. I was so weak that I felt like I was going to pass out if I stood up. I kept telling him "I'm sorry" and kept thanking him for helping me. He didn't understand why I kept apologizing but I just hate to keep running him around like I did.

Finally about 7:00 pm I did manage to eat a few crackers and some sip on some vegetable broth. This morning I got down a piece of toast.

I still feel very weak and it will take some time to get better.
You didn't need to apologize because I am your husband, I am supposed to take care of you. It's a labor of love. Anything to make my sweety feel better.

Good morning,

I feel sick as a dog today, it has progressively gotten worse all week, we have so many things to do today. We are going to see how much Uncle Sam owes us back for last year, then we have our belated Valentine's lunch. My wife's other grandmother is in the hospital now also with pneumonia and her lungs are filling with fluid and her heart is weakening, so she wants to run down to the hospital to see her since it may be her last chance, she put her self on the do not resuscitate list, I think she has wanted to "go home" for the last few years she misses her husband who died back in the 90's. I will not be able to go in unfortunately while I am sick though. My wife's grandmother in Canada is not much better either but she has been eating again.

Have a good day.

Good Second-Half-of-the-Weekend Morning, Friends and Christmas Neighbors!

(Now there's a thought that can really stick with you, coffee or not.)

Nice and calm with lots of sun outside here at this hour.
We stand at a still coolish 48 on the way up to the upper 50's by this afternoon. Still no rain until at least Tuesday, and then it's only a 20 percent chance.
(Good time to get in some of that outdoor work!)

Well, you have a Super Sunday and a Rousing Rest of the Weekend, Folks!

Glad you are feeling a little better. It might take a few days until you feel like you are back in the land of the living. Take care! I am sure Snow-in-Texas did a great job!

Good morning, Christmas friends. Woke up to frost here in northern California. It stayed cold all day yesterday, so it will probably do the same today. We have another day of making the Italian noodles and then should be finished. I hope everyone has a great day. I guess the wanted posters put out with my face on them precludes my being able to steal anymore snow. And here I thought I was just being a good citizen. At least, though, I was never caught with the goods!!!
