ANOTHER COLD!!! and other things

I'd barely gotten over the last one and I've got ANOTHER cold! Or maybe it's just a relapse of the last one...who knows. I only know I feel absolutely MISERABLE! It reminds me of why I stopped teaching school...because every kid that came to school sick, teacher got their cold. By the last year I taught I had chronic bronchitis. I've done really well since I've moved to Florida...until this year. In the last twelve months I've had FOUR colds! I think I must be a cold magnet. So, if you're walking down the aisle at church this morning and you see a woman sitting there with watery eyes, running nose, coughing her head off while she sucks cough drop after cough drop, think of me.

On a cheerier note, we watched the movie Julie/Julia last night. My sweet husband bought it for me as a Christmas gift, and it was wonderful.

For those keeping track of Andy, his name is now Alex and he's found a brand new home with the family of the little girl I've kept for the past five years...oops SIX years now. As much as we loved him, he caused me considerable stress. As I told a friend, I had no business having a puppy. He is much loved there and we'll still be able to see him often. Yes, I have a few regrets, but I know it was the right thing to do. So, if you even hear me THINKING about getting another dog, please kick me.

I'm off to the shower and to get ready for church...hope your Lord's Day is blessed!

I know it was a hard decision for you to give up Andy. I think it will reduce your stress and maybe just maybe you will not get any more colds/sickness while reducing that stress.
