Under The Weather

I caught some nasty bug going around and I've been battling it since Sunday - it's winning. Quite a few years ago when I had my gall bladder removed, they partially collapsed my lung and ever since then, whenever I get a cold or anything remotely resembling a cold, it immediately settles in my lungs and knocks me out.

As I've told you before though, I have a wonderful Doctor, and he knows just how many drugs I need to start feeling better and he's been pumping them into me since Monday. They are finally starting to work and it's a good thing, too, as I had to go back to work today.

While I hate taking Prednisone for many reasons, the one benefit is I have no pain in my joints so I've been making the most of that and doing some knitting.

We received this in the mail yesterday:

Initially, I thought it was junk mail promoting a new movie, then when I looked closer (click to enlarge) I realized it was a birth announcement.

I also wanted to share these with you that Sandra gave me:

Now, this isn't just some ordinary sticker book - it has stickers of my baby in it!!!!

There are 24 different pictures - all of my baby! I'm like a little kid when it comes to stickers. Sandra had a book made up for Elizabeth, her bridesmaid, with both her little boys in it and she also had one done for herself with all their engagement pictures on them.

If you can't live without some of these in your life, they can be found at Moo.

I'm sorry you're sick.

What a cute baby announcement ... what will they think of next.

The stickers what a great idea. I got in on the Snapfish by Oprah ... can't wait to see my album.
