Thanks to a blog friend who e-mailed me, I found out one of the comments I put through actually led to a foreign p*rn site. There was nothing unusual about it from my side. My apologies for anyone who clicked on it (it has met its' Trash demise).
I wasn't able to go to the hospital over the weekend but I did talk to my niece. The tests I had done at the doctor's office Friday morning showed I had a very severe infection. The nurse found it hard to believe I didn't know about it but as I told her... the symptoms were not unlike the flu that has been going around.
They called in a prescription for antibiotics and had me start them immediately. I have found in the past that antibiotics and I do not agree with each other, especially the first few days. Hopefully, getting rid of this infection will help me feel better for the first time since about September. (Infections are the bain of a diabetics existence...)
This has been a very quiet Christmas... not a bad thing this year. I'm not even doing much baking. However, the Season has been good with reading, listening to music, enjoying the decorations, and catching some very good movies on TV and DVDs. At one time I would have considered such a Season quite boring. :)
This year I need to concentrate on the spiritual side of Christmas. I feel particularly vulnerable spiritually right now... as if I'm going through a season when the proverbial deer is panting for the water... a dry sponge soaking in the Holy. What better time than Advent to do so.
I'm hoping to have a pantry post up within the next couple of days and (finally) the Recommendations List. I gave up on it when our Internet was not working correctly for nearly two months (when I was losing half of what I wrote as it did not save) and we were on the phone to Mumbai a couple times a week. Now that the new router is here, I am no longer losing the Internet ten or fifteen times a day.
Thank you for all who ordered Amazon products through the widget. I already have enough credit available in late January to order Elizabeth's birthday present. That is a very good thing... :)
