I couldn't get my iPad to work for this update (sigh), so I'm forcing myself to sit up and type this at my computer in my office. And I do mean FORCING, because all I want to do is lie down. I'm much worse today. I spent much of the day flat on my back in bed. I couldn't sleep a lot of the time (you know how restless you can be when you're sick), but I couldn't stand the thought of being up -- even just sitting up. I couldn't get myself to watch TV or play my game. I did read a bit, though. But mostly I felt so crappy that I couldn't concentrate to do anything. The best thing was when I was able to sleep. Sheer heaven! Around 5:00 p.m. I had to force myself to get up and do the garbage and recycling. It's not too much of an exaggeration to say that I could barely manage it. I was so wimpy and wobbly while packing up garbage and recycling and hauling it out.

And it was HOT outside, too -- it reached 90° today. Of course, I was running a fever, so I'm not sure I would have known the difference. Hahaha. All I do know is that it seemed like a wonderful blessing to have the air on all day long (which I did). I was pouring sweat (it was running into my eyes and stinging and awful) by the time I finished cleaning the cat boxes. I was afraid I'd pass out as I finished everything up, but I managed. I remember coming back in the house and pulling off my soaked clothes and changing. But I don't really remember getting back in bed.

Marilyn phoned when she was headed home. Amazingly enough, she was here before 7:00 tonight! She had a long day without a single break and was exhausted and ready to rest. I keep hoping and praying she won't get my bug. It's bad enough for me to be sick this late in the year. We are rarely ever sick in May or June. The Sing-off is Saturday. And all next week is just PACKED with activities and work! I can't think about that now. I'm supposed to have Kris doing something tomorrow or Saturday, but I didn't even try to reach him today. Just too sick to care. If he doesn't do the work, oh well. Whatever!

I should post about Sue and the car and everything. Maybe next time. I can't believe I managed this much as it is... Must head to bed. I just can't sit up any longer. Hope I'm much better tomorrow...

    No time for a big (full) 'review' of the film. But we did see it at the noon showing today -- and will probably go and see it again tomorrow, too.…
