Another weekend gone by in a haze of fever, body aches, chills and dangerous trips up and down stairs. What is going on? I thought my immune system was supposed to help me fight off opportunistic infections without completely wrecking me. At least it has the good grace to go off the rails when I actually can afford to be sick. I am hoping for a healthier spring. In the meantime, I am sitting in the wingback chair in my living room staring out the rain speckled windows at a gray February afternoon and being thankful that I was able to get myself out of bed today. The chores abound and will have to wait until I have the energy to do more than bathe and dress myself.
