God has a sense of humor. He really does. Remember when I said I was feeling under the weather last week? Well, I had also been overextending my boundaries and slightly tiptoeing close to the lines that I set and I think that He decided to pull the carpet straight out from under me and remind me of my limitations. Not only did I NOT start feeling better, I started feeling worse! First a flare-up of rheumatic fever (first one in a long time) and then, what I thought was allergies ends up with me in a deep sweaty-feverish sleep and a cough that makes me sound like a walrus. I totally get it. Don't even play with the lines. Look the opposite direction and proceed to the other side of the street. Do not pass go...do not collect $200. Just stay away from the boundary lines.
Now I'm going to jug some cough syrup and wait on the doctor's office to call me back while I snuggle with Shadow.
