Are you ready for one of those obtuse, vague, strongly insinuating, but provides nothing of substance blog posts? I hope so, because here we go.
In the past week several things have happened that have potential to change things for me DRASTICALLY. As in, all prayers from the past year are teasing me with almost being answered. But to get to those answers- to the light at the end of this tunnel- requires a lot of work from me. A LOT OF WORK FROM ME. And there is still no promise it will pay off.
But just in case miracles do happen, I am working my tail off and doing the very best that I can do. And did I mention I woke up on Thursday with a massive head cold? The kind of out of nowhere head cold where when you walk into the pharmacy to buy medication (the kind you show ID for behind the counter), you might put your head in your hand on the counter and accidentally fall asleep. Yeah, true story. The pharmacist actually patted me on the head.
Have you noticed that since returning to Virginia I seem to be overwhelmed by massive head colds regularly? Because I can't help but notice it every time I glance over at my nightstand. There's Benadryl, Sudafed, Claritin, Mucinex (2 types), and Nyquil. Yeah, I seem to be constantly sick recently. But today I had an epiphany! It was stupid, and I can't tell you what it was, but I figured out what is making me sick! And hopefully in a few weeks that problem will be remedied, and I will breathe freely again!
So here I am, ridiculously sick (took 3 naps today), and trying to work my butt off to make miracles happen. (Insert "there must be opposition in all things" and "sometimes you need road blocks to prevent stupid mistakes" quotes here.)
And let's add one more stress to the list. I do love writing my "Single Thought" column. I really, really do. But lately I seemed to have set a new bar for myself, and the pressure is on to reach that new bar again. Don't get me wrong, this is a wonderful problem to have. I just don't know what the solution is yet!
Never before have I been so happy for LDS General Conference. It will be on all day Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3. If there was ever a time where I just needed to listen to a prophet's voice, and be counseled by the Lord's appointed, it is now. Also, getting to justify sitting and doing nothing in front of the TV all day? Also something I could really use!

  1. Totally get the head cold (or possibly sinus) thing. And the miscellany of meds thing. And the falling asleep unexpectedly thing. Just made a salad at 1:00a.m., because I am awake after the last nap, and the prednisone said "EAT something!" (I think a dozen chocolate chip cookies was what it had in mind, but oh well.)


Thanks for leaving a comment!
