Hey, folks! Well, I'm finally set up again in our new house! We moved all day Thursday and Friday, and got everything in those two days. We went back to the townhouse to clean on Saturday and pick up all those teeny little things that you manage not to get into boxes, you know?! I hate that part! Anyway, we are in the house, and I'm loving it!
On Friday morning I woke up feeling kinda yuck - sore throat, headache, ears aching - but after I got up, I felt better, just a little stuffy, and didn't think any more about it, other than having a hard time breathing through my nose. That night I was so tired I literally could barely move, but again, attributed it to being tired from the move. Saturday morning I was tired feeling and still fighting that headache and stuffy nose, but thought it was just a cold. Well. About an hour into cleaning the townhouse, it hit. I started aching everywhere. Then I got cold and couldn't shake it off. I thought I was tired from cleaning, although I was a little disappointed in myself that I couldn't go clean a house for a few hours without wimping out like that. And Wes had the doors and windows open, so I thought that was why I was cold. I kept working, feeling progressively worse, still thinking I was just majorly tired. Some friends had invited us to dinner at their house so I wouldn't have to worry with cooking, so when we finished cleaning, I came back to the house and lay down on the bed. And that was that. I stayed there till sometime Sunday afternoon! I ended up with a good case of the flu. I was in bed for the better part of two whole days. What timing! LOL
So. All that to say that I've either been without a computer or sick for the past 5 days. I'm feeling much better today, and I have lots of work waiting for me. My kitchen is almost together; I have a few more things to straighten out, and even then I might change it around again! Beth thinks I'm crazy, but she hasn't had her own kitchen yet. It has to flow, you know? I still have to finish those crazy sheers too. Cheryl (Copper's Wife), I tried steaming one panel of the drapes with the iron like you suggested, and it worked! It takes a while, but I'll chip away at it - there are six panels to do. Our bedroom is still a wreck. That will take some time to get to. So much to do. Wes likes to say it will still be there tomorrow - and that's what I hate about it! LOL I will take it easy though. I don't want to get sick again.
Thanks again for all your prayers during our move! Although I don't know most of you in "real life" I do cherish your friendships. See ya later!
