The past few days - the next few days

The Setting:

Me getting ready to go to see my niece graduate in California.  Been looking forward to this trip for months.  Very happy excited.

The Problem:

Three weeks ago I got a cold and it has lingered and lingered and then sort of disappeared and then BOOM - came back with a vengeance on Friday night.   I felt as tho I had taken a sleeping pill, I was so exhausted that I couldn't lift my head.  I coughed till I was blue in the face

The First Solution:

On Saturday - I gave in and went to the walk in clinic - where they gave me three kinds of wonderful drugs to combat this whatever-it-is...and by Sunday morning I felt like a million dollars.   My BFF came over and we had a little sewing bee thing going, then I went Kayaking with the Mr.  Those wonderful drugs - "CALIFORNIA here I come!!!" I sang

The Backsliding:

I think you all know what happens when you take antibiotics and other drugs.  Yup, they mess up your the point where I was convinced that I had food poisoning.  Called the Doctor again, and was told to eat Yogurt.

The Result?:

I have my tickets in hand, my bags are packed, I meet mom, another niece, and a grand-niece at the airport in Phoenix for the final leg to the Central Coast of CA, I have prepared dried foods to take with me, art supplies, knitting and WAY to many clothes.

Have a lovely week! and stay away from colds - they mess you up!

Me thinks the beautiful salt air of California will heal you right up. Take care and have fun.

What you need is Sunshine...and the shared family joy of seeing each other and watching your niece graduate! Just go a teensy bit slower than usual..

Mim, you pack like me! A-ha-ha!
I always want to be prepared for anything - so bring everything!

Ah, you are flying West and I am flying Southwest....

I hope you get to meet with Lori this time.. say hi to her from me if you do! And please give your Mum a big hug from me!

HAVE FUN! That's the most important things....but do it at your own pace...and take lots of photos!

Safe travels - there and back!

Mim what an ordeal. I do hope you are totally on the mend and can enjoy your time in Sunny California. curious which town you are in, how close you might be to where I am ... I know you are at a family event...but if it were at all possible I'd sure love to see you...probably not possible but one can dream.

Have fun with the family!

You explained this perfectly and I hope when you come back the after note will be 'totally healed'!
