Sick

So I am supposed to be getting ready to leave after work tomorrow night to our house on the coast. I started feeling a bit sickly today, maybe a head cold. I have managed to ward off the illnesses running rampant in our office and around town, that is it appears until one day before I leave for a short vacation...imagine that!

I have to admit I am pretty nervous for my son. I am pretty sure he received that money from the school ($2,007) and is using it for a major binge. It concerns me as his usage has been down from what it once was as he is on probation, but he appears to not be caring about that at this point and I am concerned he will OD. That all being said, nothing I can do but pray to God to intervene and to bring a mentor into my son's life. So sad, having to deal with the drug and not being able to even see my son through that mask of chemicals. Brother is still MIA and we are scheduled to leave tomorrow. I am determined to feel better so been eating chicken soup, got a massage today and drinking juice, now off to bed. I pray I feel well tomorrow and get on the road to a bit of peace with my hubby.

Serenity prayer, Serenity prayer, Serenity prayer....night all.

Nite, sweetie. You are going to feel better. (crush some garlic and spread it on bread with butter...but make sure hubby has some too!)

I will pray extra hard for your boy these next few days.

I found that until I figured out how to think about all the chaos, I took the chaos with me in my head. I hope you truly get away from it all.

I also pray that you will feel better tomorrow, and that you'll find a little peace with your hubby.

Hoping, for you, that the holiday is truly a time of respite.

I hope you feel better too! And that getting away gives you a measure of peace.
If you wake up and are not feeling better, make sure you drink lots of fluids. Ironically enough, after my surgery when I was really in pain - it helped me to not obsess over my daughter! Something about not feeling well makes it harder to think :)
I hope you have a relaxing trip... God bless.

I especially love Brother Frankie's comment! Take it to heart and we'll be praying. I hope you have a drama-free, restful, truly special time away with your husband!

And I hope you feel WAY better, FAST!

I'm visualizing God picking you and your family up, and cradling you all in his warm hands, right now. Bless you all.

Be well. Remember the three C's. It's hard to not think about the what if's...but if we can catch ourselves doing that, we must say the serenity prayer. I hope you get away, find joy, laugh, smile...
Happy New Year!

I was very sick for the past few days. Makes it hard to deal with anything..especially drama.

I'm glad that you let go of the drama and took care of yourself.
