I am so wanting to get back to pondering and photographs and gardening and... well, you get it.
Instead physically I have been getting worse instead of better. We now realize this cold I have is the same thing Christopher was suffering from during finals week. He ended up having to go on antibiotics to get over it and that is the last thing I want to do, after being on them so often this winter. (I keep telling him that I now know just what he meant when he kept saying he was miserable.) :)
Since I'm still dealing with the congestion and being unable to breath through my nose, I'm also still having trouble sleeping at night... and I have tried EVERYTHING I know to take or do to get over this (knowing there are some things one cannot take if diabetic or taking medication for thyroid disease).
ADDED: Oh, did I mention I've started coughing so much I can't keep food down? Since we are all friends here, I may as well include that bit of trivia which you probably could have done without. But it may be helpful to be prayed over.
Now... to stop whining and send out a thank you to God (Who definitely ordained the events leading up to this). Christopher was suppose to have a nonpaid research assistantship this summer but the professor he was to work with has been busy traveling and didn't have time to bring in new students right now.
At the end of a long e-mail from one of his professors last week, there was a mention of another professor needing a science student to help design an APP for the iPhone. He just had the basic classes for this last semester. He set up an interview and was immediately hired... and it pays!!! He will be working full time this summer along with taking one summer school class and there is a chance he could continue working part-time during the school year.
There is more to the story as to how he has just the classes and background for this work (that God ordained stuff again) but it is for another story... or as Alton says on Good Eats, "that's another episode".
Thank you for your prayers that I will get over this and breath again (not to mention get a good night's sleep).
