Sorry I haven't posted or Commented!!

Just a quick note to tell everyone that I had my grandkids here for 3 days to babysit (Nathan, age 6 and Miranda, age 19 months), so I didn't have time to post on the computer while they were here.
Then, last night I started to get racking chills and a very sore throat, and have been very sick for the last 12 hours.....
Their parents came and picked up the kids today around 2 p.m. and I have been in bed ever since~!

I hope to do my daily posts again and read everybody's blogs as soon as I get a few more days of recuperation under my belt. (At least get so I don't have to sit up at attention every time I have to swallow!) and quit having chills and a fever!!!!!!

Stay tuned and thanks for continuing to read my blog. I really miss my every day contact with you all....

J.J., Lynn, Insanity Kim, ANEL, Shellmo, Ratty, Polly, Roshni and Loree:
Thanks everyone!! Just hearing from everybody makes me feel much better. Today, the fever is still high, but the throat is a little better (still sore)! But it looks like I have peaked with the worst of it and am on the downhill side of the virus. The grandkids had runny noses, so I suspect I picked some bug up from them with all the hugging and all!! (And lack of sleep from Miranda wanting to nurse all night and having to settle for Grandma's bottles instead (this milk bar is closed!) ha

Carol said...

Dude, I hope you feel better and that once your petri-dish grandkids are gone your immune system breaths the fresh air and revives itself.

Judy said...

Sure hope you feel better soon. I had my grandson this past weekend and I guess I hurt my back lifting him. I can barely get around! Hopefully, we will both be all better real soon.

Venom said...

Hey - I love your crisp, clean new look!!

The Retired One said...

Kearsie, Judy and Venom: thanks. I feel a little better today. I decided to to change my layout with much encouragement from A NEW ENGLAND LIFE (at http://anewenglandlife.blogspot.com). She has gorgeous pictures on her blog and I asked her how she got them so big, and she suggested a layout change (and gave me the courage to try it!) Judy,I can relate to your back pain. I carried my granddaughter Miranda alot and mine is sore too.
Oh, getting older is NOT fun. ha
