Starting off December with some sort of cold/flu event just so I do not have to deal with being sick for the rest of the winter (ah, that I really could plan that well!). While I am home working through the nasty symptoms, I'm keeping myself upright, when gravity really wishes I would stop fighting and just lay down and sleep this off. So far I have managed to sort and cull my entire book collection. 3/4 of it will be given away and some donated to a local charity shop. I kept my two small collections of cat books (maybe not so small), and my array of Cape Cod books. What a relief! Next up, last night when I could not sleep from this plague, I attacked the storage box containing all my important personal papers. All done, and there were two major trips out to the dumpster - therapeutic - of course, as I took many deep breaths of the cool night air. What a great feeling to have these huge projects off my list, and I was distracted for hours from thinking about how awful I feel.
In the process of purging, I was also able to sort out several collections of things I'd been meaning to give to siblings and grandchildren. They now are ready for mailing. I also came across bits and pieces of former lives that I find I no longer need to hang on to, and they have been let go. Freedom for my soul!
So, as much as I do not like being sick, it's not so bad after all! I'll be already to feel fine through the holidays!
Of course, those doing my job at the office, are probably not feeling so happy, as they are doubly burdened. Alas, I have no voice right now, so I'd not be much help, not to mention, no one needs me spreading this illness.
Today, I hope to do a little sewing after I win the battle with gravity. Right now my head does not feel strong to stay upright. Oh well......this too, shall pass.
Hope everyone out there is happy, and healthier. Love to all!
