Feeling Much Better

Thank you to everyone who prayed and sent such kind thoughts my way! I'm feeling so much better now. Other than still being a little tired, I'm pretty much back to my old self.

Emily had a little relapse yesterday. She started with a fever again and had a terrible stuffy nose. She just laid around all day yesterday. That worked out for me because it allowed me to take a nap when she did. Plus I didn't have to chase her around much. Today, she still has a stuffy nose but not as bad, and her fever is gone. Thank the Lord! She's back to playing around and I have some energy to join her!

While I was laying around these past days, I was able to watch three movies and do plenty of reading. I finished watching St. Rita. It was a good movie and did a good job in trying to humanize her and not seem so supernatural or mystical. Eight Below was alright. I believe I was at my most feverish, so I couldn't focus too much. It also wasn't as sad as I thought it might be. The last movie I saw was Love Comes Softly. I loved that one. I really enjoy those wholesome movies that take place in pioneer times. Of course, now I have to rent all the sequels and read the books that the movies were based on. Well, I'll just add them to my already long list of must reads.

That brings up the question of what will I be reading for Lent this year? I should be done with Fr. Dubay's book any day now so I will be looking in my bookcase for some new spiritual books. I have so many that I haven't read yet that there will be plenty to choose from.

I've been tagged for a meme so I will be working on that, but for now I'm off to do a little reading before sleep.

So glad you are feeling better. I may have to look into the St. Rita movie. Sounds interesting.
