And now it's Saturday....
First - before I do anything else - I have to thank you all for your comments on yesterday's blog. They all helped - they really did !!
My staff Christmas party was last evening - and honestly I just didn't feel much like partying........... I woke yesterday morning with a sore throat that slowly - as the day progressed - brought with it a sinus headache and achy bones. (a hot bath and my pjs looked more welcoming than going out to party )
Then when I ran home for a quick lunch - there was a phone message. The doctor's office that had screwed up on Wednesday had called. They are going to fit me in on Monday morning !!! I do NOT have to wait another month.
I went to the party and managed to sit with the 4 women I thoroughly enjoy working with.......... which went a long way to improving the mood of the party for me. At one point I was standing up involved in a silly party game my "social committee" planned. I looked up to see one of the 4 women standing at the head of the table getting everyone's attention. She presented me with a Christmas card. When I opened it I thought I was going to cry - inside they had placed money and a note that said "a little something to go towards another safe trip "home". I was speechless. (which is rare ) I barely choked out a thank you. (gonna have to write some thank you notes for sure this weekend!!)
And so here it is Saturday morning - and I am sniffling and sneezing and feeling like crap - but with a softness inside. A warm glow that maybe (just maybe) everything will be ok...........
What a difference a day makes !!!
