I got kicked in the face, literally, with a sinus infection last week & it was only getting worse.
It actually started when I was in the hospital with dad. The air up there was just so different. I'd leave there every day feeling like I was so dry & needed to drink 20 gallons of water. I'm sure that air did something to really stoke up my sinuses.
Friday, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to make it, but I fought through to make it to a photo session for one beautiful momma.
She actually was one of my past brides & I dont ever like to reschedule maternity sessions if I can help it because you never know when things can go early. I did a maternity session one time & had the momma deliver just a few days after her pictures ... super early.... that has me scared now that I'll have a momma delivering while I edit pictures of the bump.
I weathered through.
I must have looked pretty rough because at one point, here's this pregnant lady with a bump on her asking me if I needed help carrying the cart up a hill.... ahhh, how cute is she?
|Cameras & kleenex... 2 musts on this session|
This sinus infection had me so out of breath & I thought I was going to pass out... but I would NEVER ask a client, especially a pregnant one, to pull this cart. Bless her heart....
I got home & just crawled in bed... I wasnt going to do anything else.
I actually woke up in the middle of the night with a fever... UGH... the worst.
When I woke up on Saturday, I knew my day was going to be so low key... the lowest its been in awhile.
We turned on the AC in our enclosed room, & Bruno came out with me & I spent most of the morning right there ....
I had knitting, coffee, my Kindle, my dogs... Lord, heal me right here in this spot.
Ricky came in from working outside for a little bit so we could watch a movie...
Wow... so good!!! I knew the story of Lee Strobel & have read his book before but loved how well this movie was done.
After it was over, Ricky went back outside to do some work & I went right back to my happy place...
I finally made my way to the computer to edit my session & was so glad that I had nothing else to do because I ended up finishing the edit marathon in just a few hours.
Watched another movie too...
|Read the book years ago ... was anxious to see it come to the screen|
After sweating out my fever, it was time for a good shower ... & then giving Bruno a bath too
& then it was bed time.
Sunday, I wasnt even sure I was going to make it to church, but I got a message that the girl that helps me was going to be gone so I didnt want to put anyone out... & my fever seemed to be staying away so I was good.
Glad to make it to see my girls. The best medicine.
Ricky met me at church after I was out & we got to hang out. We hardly ever get to spend Sunday together anymore so it was nice to go get some things done at Sam's Club & at Target... & then grabbed some lunch.
I was so excited to see they had a new salad that sounded amazing... a Black Cherry Spinach Salad. The picture had chicken on it so I asked for no chicken & I like to always add "I dont eat meat" just to let them know that because so many foods have meat snuck in them without even being on the menu.
... & low & behold it comes -& look amazing... & I cut it up
|Those are red onions & black cherrries & candied almonds|
& see freaking bacon on it .
Needless to say, Ricky got a salad with his lunch.
We headed home - & just wanted to stay indoors. It was so miserable with the heat & humidity. It was the kind of heat that you sweat just stepping outside.
I spent some time working on my women's Bible Study stuff.... & ordered my teen girls Bible Study group book to get prepped for that. #allthebiblestudies
I wanted to head back to church since they were having a Night of Worship with the group Awaken Worship ... its a hodgepodge of the worship leaders from difference campuses that have made this AMAZING group. They are SO GOOD. They were recording their new album out at the main campus & I SOOOO BADLLLY wanted to go - but didnt want to push it.
First, I had no energy from feeling bad & 2nd, I need to get better to face the week ahead... sigh...
I'll be first in line to buy the CD.
One of my all time favorite songs!!!!!!
So here we go into a new week.
Praying it's a better one... no sickness... no fevers... no dad's getting sick...
& praying no one burns their eyes out today on the solar eclipse.
Anyone excited about it? I'm actually pretty stoked about it... going to be surfing Google for all the ways to look at it since I dont have any glasses.
HAPPY ECLIPSE DAY!!!
How was your weekend?
