Missing Easter

I totally missed Easter yesterday. I've been fighting allergies and a chronic cough for the last three weeks and woke up yesterday with a fever and feeling really, really lousy. El Jefe went off to church and brunch with family and friends while Beatrice and Olivia kept me company on the bed. (Olivia was having an extended sleep-over with Bea.)

Although I'm feeling better this morning, I'm calling Dr. Mickey because this has gone on too long.

Funny story from El Jefe: During worship a big thunderstorm came through the area, and just as the pastor mentioned the word "thunder" in his sermon a big clap of the same echoed throughout the sanctuary to the gasps of the congregation. The pastor quipped, "we've got a guy in the back with a big sheet of metal providing our sound effects" !

Hope you all had a blessed Easter.

I am sorry you missed Easter and haven't been feeling well. Prayers going up to find out what this is and for Dr. Mickey to FIX it!

Love the thunder story.

Hope you got what you needed from the Dr. Sorry you missed Easter. There's a sermon in there somewhere. I'll tuck this title away in my mental notebook.

Aha! You were not alone - I too spent Easter sick in bed...perhaps we could start some sort of recovery group? Women who missed Easter?
