Because inbetween all the partying and doing and stuff (most of which I haven't even blogged about)
I have felt absolutely awful.
Like sweats in the middle of meetings.
Feeling like throwing up after every meal.
Scratchy throat that never develops into a full blown sore throat.
Except that I haven't felt sick enough to go to bed.
I said enough was enough and I declared the day an official sick day.
I answered a minimum of phone calls.
Took a nap.
Didn't wear makeup or contacts.
Went to the myopractor----some blessed relief.
Ditched out on the Trunk or Treat last night......I decided to take off the "relief society president" calling and not go even though there were many members and investigators who attended.
Actually watched tv on the couch last night. (which is rare)
In between dozing off I caught up on
The weather (warming up after today)
The latest slime that Jon & Kate are throwing at each other (I quit watching their show-ug)
Some really funny episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, except I can't remember the plot.
Some stuff on HGTV-somebody from Utah buying a mansion in Mexico and some crazy young couple tearing up a room to make a play room.
Enough late night tv to last me for awhile, in between sleeping.
But I did do about 6 loads of laundry.
Worked on a new photo book of our trip to California.
Vacuumed all hard surface floors in the house.
Did my dictation.
So I guess all was not lost.
Do I feel better?
I'm taking some nice ladies to the temple in about 30 minutes.
And I woke up this morning listening to poor Steve in the bathroom.
I think he's taking a sick day today.
P.S. Please don't tell me how lucky I am that I can take a day off and be sick without kids. Trust me, been there done that......

Can you see him there? Way in the back left with his arms raised up?
I can't wait to hear what he says next!
Since I post-dated this-we got some PHOTOS of him from a member early this morning:
It looks like he is not a block of ice yet. I'm so glad he gets to carve a pumpkin this year! Thanks Sis. Wilson for thinking of me!!!

A couple of days ago, I returned home from an evening meeting to be greeted with this:
Aww, a bunch of returned missionaries all dressed up.Are they having a serious scriptural discussion? A Bible study group?Bearing testimony?
It's draft night for the Martha Stewart League of the Fantasy Basketball season.
And here is the commissioner of the Martha Stewart Fantasy Basketball League congratulating somebody for something. (??????)There's always a lot of serious negotiation going on during the draft.A job well done.
People, these men are the future wives of your daughters and fathers of your grandchildren.
I have no words.
But I do laugh alot.

Round II: This is my theory here, or at least what I've been told. When planting, you don't just do it all at once, or then you'll have a harvest all at once. Three weeks ago (or thereabouts), I planted Round I and so yesterday I started Round II-with a few deviations:
This year I'm giving celery a shot. We'll see what happens. The lady said to keep it wet.
Widdle plants and dirt. Underneath the dirt is seeds!
Round II, here we go!
