Well, 2015 has started a little rough.  I’ve spent the last 3 weeks sick.  I’ve been in the hospital with pneumonia and I’ve memorized every flaw in my house…..Watching HGTV for two weeks while recuperating may not have been a good idea.  I have a long list of DIY things!

I can say that there has been some benefit to it all.  It has made me realize a couple of things.  The first is how fortunate I am to have the family and friends that I do.  My sweet Daddy, came to the hospital and managed to keep my Mother home, she was sick herself, to check on me and kept my hubby, Danny, informed and my daughter, Heather.  The first night when I got into my room, I was so weak, he even cut up my meat for me.  Just goes to show you always need your parents and never take them for granted.  I know how blessed I am.  My sweet daughter, Heather, came to the hospital to keep tabs on me, having a nurse in the family definitely has its benefits!  She brought my sweet Angel, Wesley and he was the best medicine ever.   And my hubby, Danny, he had taken care of me when I was first diagnosed with the flu, only to have to come home early to find me in the hospital.  He was awesome, when I took that first walk down the hospital hallways, He kept me steady and I felt safe.

My friends have been great, calling and checking on me and offering help in any way I need it.  I am truly blessed.  My bosses have been fabulous, they have told me not to worry about anything.  I can’t wait to get back to school.  I have missed my kids, my co-workers and friends, and I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone Monday.  I’m sure I’ll be exhausted by the end of the day, but I’ll be happy!  I work on the best campus ever with the best folks ever!

This illness has caused me to pause and look at how I’ve been taking care of myself….or not as the case would be.  I know I have to change how I do things.  I have to eat better, exercise more and pay more attention to the little things.  This will happen.  I’m gaining strength every day, still coughing up my toenails, but I do feel better.  So, that being said, the focus of this blog is changing to getting healthy for a while.  So I’m open to suggestions on healthy eating, exercise and anything else that will help me met my goals.  I know my following is very small (if I have one at all) but this will be my therapy.  Here’s to a healthier February and rest of 2015!!!
