back to work...

The nice 2 week vacation was lovely.  Not too restful, but enjoyable.  I enjoyed sleeping a little later, the possibility of taking a nap and time to drink coffee, eat lunch, and visit with friends.

But now I'm back in the "real world".  That's part of the reason there hasn't been a blog post all week.

0ne night, I logged on, and opened up the page, but I got side-tracked and then fell asleep before I could post anything.

It wasn't too, too bad going back to school.  It was time, I suppose.  One day closer to the end!

Early in the week, I could have done a commercial for Mucinex, but I'm feeling pretty normal now.

In the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday, in a sleep induced fog, I remember being glad that it was Saturday.  I was so disappointed when I realized it was *only* Wednesday.  Maybe it had something to do with the weather that came through and the Golden Retriever that is terrified of thunder.  I finally got up around 4, and laid down on the couch.  She jumped on top of me, and was happy as a clam. 

Monday was a day for wearing gloves and scarves.  On Wednesday, my high schooler comfortably wore shorts to school.  Go figure.

My dear husband called me from the road one night. He said that his lips were numb and he was having trouble closing one eye, and could I look up these symptoms on the internet?  Sounded a little stroke-like to me, and the symptoms sort of fit.  All of the stroke info had something along the lines of "seek medical help immediately".  But not my dear hubby.  He wasn't messing with that before morning .  The next day, he actually asked me, if he should wait until I got home from school to go to the doctor.  Ummm ....No!  What part of "immediately" don't you get?

I convinced him to go to our family practice doctor, and he diagnosed the symptom's as Bell's Palsy.   A paralysis of one side of the face,  which should resolve itself.  A few prayers of thanks were uttered for that one!

A for me now - I'm sitting here with my laptop, taking occasional breaks to "rest my eyes".  

How's that for a "stream of consciousness" post?  Sometimes the brain just can't do much more than that!

Hope the rest of the work week is great!

  1. Good luck in school and thank God your husband's condition was only Bell's palsy. I don't know much about it, but I know that getting regular doses of B vitamins throughout the day are helpful to the nerves. Sure have helped my inherited familial tremor.
