Aweeeeeeeee Thank You ;)

Hello Sweet Bloggy friends... one of my readers was right. I was still down and out the last few weeks. I am feeling a tad bit better each day. I awoke yesterday feeling the best I have in over three weeks. So that tells me that the 100,000 CCU's of Vit D weekly and other drugs are finally kicking in. I still have a long way to go until I am what I would call healthy.. but I am getting better each day.... Yeahhhhhhhhh!!!! I am so thankful for that. I felt like I was trudging through this big pit of thick thick mud , with concrete blocks attached to my feet..... and I could not move, and the pain I was feeling was almost unbearable. I just barely had enough go go juice in reserve for me to go to work each day. As soon as I got home each night.. I checked emails and then went straight to bed. After 3 weeks of new meds... most of the pain I was feeling is gone and I have regained back some of my energy. I have been very surprised at how badly one can feel when your body's Eco system is all out of whack. Then to add the flu on top of it... being sick really took its tole on me. I am very thankful for my wonderful doctor that knew what to do... I am most grateful for modern medicines.. that have helped me recover so quickly. I will have to have more tests in about 2 1/2 months, but for now ... I feel much better.

I wish to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers, well wishes and emails during this illness. It's so nice to know that people have missed me and my wicked sense of humor ;) I have missed all of you too. I am sorry I did not get your comments responded to.. but I know you understand under the circumstances.

OK now for so fun stuff.

I spent the day yesterday with the baby sister and her oldest son. Her other two children were with their dad. The three of us had so much fun spending the day with each other...... Laughing, eating, chatting. My sister and her children are just so much fun. I love every moment I get to spend with them. They keep me laughing in stitches.
You ask what did we do???? Well this is what we did :)
My city hosts the Academy Award Shorts. These fun videos are presented through grants foundations, sponsors, libraries, and local movie theaters.
This is the 24Th year that our City has hosted this event.
My city is one of the few in the nation that has been granted permission to show the Academy Award nominated Shorts. The subjects of the shorts we were able to see, are in the categories of animation, live action and documentary... What is really awesome about getting to see these video shorts here in my city..... admission is...... free!!
As we sat there watching these creative works of art we laughed, we cried, we booed at these amazing shorts. I am always curious and interested to see the wonderful things that people create and dream up. One can not help but be awe struck at all the wonderful creations that people imagine and complete. After the viewing of the shorts... we started discussing which ones would win at the Academy Awards show.. yep you guess it... the ones we decided that were the best...... Won!!
So it was a fun day filled with laughter, jokes, videos, pizza, Academy Awards Show and yes APP's favorite Pepsi :)
