Really sick with a cold. Stupid changing weather. My nose is a faucet. Drip
Drip Drip. My eyes are watery. Plop Plop Plop. And I can't stop sneezing.
Achoo Achoo Achoo!

I've already gone through three boxes of tissues.

I feel achy and tired and so weak. Micah says I look worse than rough.

But yet I am at work. What a dedicated employee. No, really I knew that a)
we need the money, always, and b) Dr Ra would freak out if I called in, even
calling in sick.

But quickly--- Easter.

Sunrise Breakfast was a rousing success. Less people than I would have
liked, only 14. But most of the church came out, even some I wasn't
expecting. Brother Nowling and Jenna had helped up set up the night before
while on Sunday morning Bro Nowling ran some last minute errands and then
helped Micah make the sausage and bacon while I played waitress and Micah
cooked loads of yummy pancakes.

But halfway through the breakfast and I started feeling worse and worse.
Finally by time for Sunday School I was sneezing and had a box of tissues
next to me at all times. Once we got home my wonderful husband sent me to
bed and ordered me to sleep while he finished cooking our Easter dinner.

He woke up me up after two blessed hours of sleep and I helped him finish up
the sides.

It was so good. And welcomed since Micah and I had only managed to scarf
down one pancake apiece in light of the earlier craziness.

The Menu:

Orange Glazed Ham
Sweet Potato Casserole
Baby Carrots
Cranberry Sauce
Empty Tomb Rolls (this has become a tradition for us)

and Chocolate Bunnies!

So that was good. But I still felt horrible afterwards, getting worse as the
night went on.

Now I'm at work and I'm making stupid mistakes because I can't think
straight. I should be at home in bed but no, I'm at work. And in two hours I
need to go to Photography class and spend 6 hours in the lab finishing up my
last 3 images for my assignment due on Wednesday.

Please pray. I need it in order to get through this day.
