I'm feeling tired and very wobbly in the stomach today, so I'm taking it quietly until I get more energy and can stop dashing to the toilet.

* basic chores - make bed, do dishes, shower, tidy the house, vacuum a few floors, 15 minutes gardening
* Saturday chores - paperwork (almost done)
* Crohn's and fibro care - exercise, stretching x 3, strengthening, stay on track with meds
* and - get hair off legs while reading the Saturday paper
* and - put dressings on my hands, as per gp's recommendations
* and - devotions
* and - prepare for Monday's appointments

Bonus points:
* sitting activities: file the recipes I photocopied yesterday, phone a friend, paint toenails so I can feel pretty and girlie tongue, cut out Christmas decorations so I just need to sew them together, make a list of things to do while unwell.
* standing activities: make soup, do shopping, go to the craft shop, walk up the street and post letters
* super mega Brownie points if I go to the book fair. I go every year, but I'm not sure if I have time or energy this year.

On the plus side, I found some muffins in the freezer, so I don't have to make any this weekend turn

Oh, and I didn't share the funny thing that happened yesterday. I tried on my spring clothes, just to see what fitted and what didn't, and to work out what accessories I needed to buy to get me through the season, and decided that I needed a red jacket and a pink hat. On impulse, I popped into an op shop while I was doing errands yesterday and there, for $6, I found both!!! How amazing is that? It's like God put them there for me, just to save me a bit of time and energy. tongue

Ivy- I hope you feel better soon.
Don't you just love that-finding exactly what you need at the right price.
I have lost so much weight this year that my winter coat and my rain coat are both way too big for me to wear. While I was in Dover my mom suggested we pop into the thrift store and they had a very nice london fog coat for $9 and I a rain coat too. (Here fall is closing in on us).
I did not get a nap today so instead will go to bed early. I did get a lead on a potential contract that if it pans out could take care of my needs for the next year (It is with a division of an agency I have worked with for years but I haven't done anything with this division).
So, Saturday-this is the Saturday when I have to teach and since I am still not 100% I think stopping at the grocery store on my way home from class and starting a load of laundry will be enough.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Fingers crossed for that contract, sj.

Thanks for reminding me about the laundry. I need to do that too.

How are you feeling?

I'm back on antibiotics so the fever and sinus headaches are gone-the biaxin makes me a bit nausious but it isn't horrible right now. I still seem to get very tired though-infections do that to me.

I just took my dog out and discovered that the outer bands of tropical storm Hanah have arrived. If we get flooding rains tonight and tomorow or if the power goes out then I can skip the groceries.
