Days of My Life

I swear my life is like a medical drama these days. Like some strange episode of "Janet's Anatomy" or "Urgent Care - Myrtle Beach".

We went on our 14th anniversary trip this weekend to Myrtle Beach. It was a quick trip - we knew it would be. We wanted to get back for Easter Service. My husband is music minster, and directing the children's choir. But we needed a break. It was a nice weekend. The weather was terrific. Today we took a walk, sat on a swing, and then napped on hammocks. What could be nicer.

Let's say a sleepless night rolling over in pain. An early morning trip to Urgent Care. A diagnosis of Shingles. A prescription of VALTREX. Great - why don't the advertisements make it clear it is for something other than .....well you know what. I'm a happily married woman. I'm not supposed to be on Valtrex.

Sigh.....

And so it goes.

I did make some progress on Pi.

Even more on the return trip - I just haven't taken an updated picture. But I'm in the last section before the border. It barely fits on my needles and takes about 45 mins to complete a round. Or maybe just because I was tired.

Oh - and my little hobby on vacations is to take $20 (no more) and blow it on lottery tickets. That has been my history - $20 spent and lost. But this time - I cashed in my loot for $55!! That's a $35 gain! Not too bad - the teller said it was pretty rare.

And I caught this gem:




14 years - and I still enjoy waking up to that face.

Ooh darn cant' see the pics :o(

But Happy 14th Anniversary!!

And I want to know how you got shingles?!?

I had a small patch once on my hands after I got chicken pox my freshman year in college (yes I dodge chicken pox my entire childhood!!) But they say it is cousin to herpes so the Valtrex makes since then! Sorry!! ;op

But now really...how on earth do you have shingles?!?

You are STEAMING thru Pi!!

I bought my yarn for Hemlock this weekend at Remi's Anniversary sale!
OOh I guess you are never there for CY sale since both of your anniversarys are the same weekend!!

Hope you are feeling better soon!
Get some rest this evening!!
