Still here but out of sorts

 The start of July was not kind to me I woke up on the first with plans of celebrating my 61st birthday only to find I was not feeling well (ugh) I was running a fever of 102 and just felt miserable. My son came down with a summer cold a few days before and sadly I think I had it a few hours later the fever still at 102, nasal congestion and coughing would confirm it. I picked up the phone to cancel my hotel reservations at the beach, brewed a cup of tea, grabbed my quilt and headed for the sofa where I would sleep on and off for nearly a week. I was so miffed I was just feeling better after seven weeks of illness in the spring.
The weather during the first 2 weeks was hot, hazy and humid, with temps at 99 for 3 days running so I was kind of glad to be house bound, except on the 4th the AC decided it wasn't going to run and tripped the breaker. I had to reset a few times but all seemed well and the repair would be here on the 5th, mind you I had just had this problem addressed in June. Luckily I keep a few fans in my garage just in case.

Well the cold or virus passed after two weeks though I am still so tired, last week my son and I went to the beach for a few hours just to soak in some much needed sunshine and fresh ocean air and to have a belated birthday lunch. On the way home my tire had a blow out and wouldn't you know it the spare was flat, one of the things I failed to check when I bought the car oops! Triple A towed the car home, on Sunday I ordered 4 new tires for my car, Tuesday while the mechanic did the test drive one of the new tires hit a nail or screw and now I am waiting for a new tire to replace the new tire. UGH! I know this is nobodys fault but what the heck. During the entire episode from the initial blowout to the flat in the new tire I remained cool and calm, my blood pressure did not rise and I did not rant for hours, Its just one of those things. 


  1. Bless your heart! May you have some good times ahead of you.
