How is it that a month goes by and I haven't written here ... again?
Rick and I have both been sick ... Upper Respiratory CRUD. Bronchial virus. Coughing. Congested. Sinus drainage. Fever.
Earaches (me). Headaches. Body aches and pains.
I haven't been this sick in YEARS!!! Heard my self making the statement (more than once) that I knew I wasn't going to die ... because I would have to feel better to die!
*Thinking, hoping, praying - that we are on the upside of it all now! We are both coughing less, and when we do cough it is a bit more productive. Fevers are down. My ears are itching - which means they are getting well. Sinus still draining and
making us feel like we are choking all the time, but not as "nasty" as it was.
We are drinking juice in moderation - trying to "up" the Vitamin C ... along with fruits and veggies as much as we can tolerate.
Drinking lots of water to stay hydrated and keep everything thin.
Soup is better tolerated than most anything else. Added some frozen peas and carrots to chicken and stars soup the other night - YUMMY!
Trying to rest ... but LIFE goes on ... even when sick ...
Rick has changed jobs.
He is now working for Indian River Transport.
Hauling food grade products in a tanker truck.
So far, 2 loads - both milk. One to Shreveport, LA and one to New Orleans, LA.
He is based out of Clovis, NM.
The pay is better - .35 per mile vs .26 per mile ...
And I get to go with him. I did go with him some when he worked for Ballard's - but it was a "don't ask, don't tell" policy. And to be honest - we both got tired of playing that game. So, now, I go and I can talk about it, blog about it, take pictures and post them, whatever!
Good and bad - I am there with Rick.
Being on the road all the time isn't a "perfect" life ... there are a lot of adjustments to be made.
But then, what life is "perfect"? Life is just LIFE.
Good and bad ... and some days just indifferent.
Lord, help us to live as unto YOU.
Worshipping you with our life's song.
I love you Lord! I love you.
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
