Project 52: in sickness and in health

Week #8
of our 2012 Project 52*
(*give or take a week here and there for vacations)

Our theme for this month is "devotion."

A couple of days ago, I woke up with a really sore throat and congestion, and the Hunk took one look at me and told me there was no way he would let me out of the house in that condition (it must have been the crazy hair).  He knew I would just soldier on (as I have done in the past) and get things done regardless.  He knew even though I was in pain, I would get myself to work, and plow through my day.

Let me tell you this, I would have done so, but was happy that he stepped in.  You see, I have a high tolerance for pain, and that morning it was 11 out of 10.  A doctor's visit later confirmed that it was a relapse (of a relapse), that I would keep on getting sick if I do not rest and recuperate fully.  This was the case 2 weeks ago when each member of our family got sick, and I had to put on my big girl pants to nurse each one back to health even though I was myself just getting over the same thing.  The universe has a way of reminding us what we should focus on, and this time around it was my health.  Laundry can wait another day (week?).

Taking it easy for now and appreciating the TLC from the Hunk,
