I have not been myself the last few days, it’s only today that I am starting to feel a bit better. I always tend to worry when I wake up and my neck hurts for more than two days in a row. I always flashback to February 2018…the worst month with my Lyme not Lyme symptoms. The boy was sick yesterday and had to take Imodium so he could go to work. I wasn’t as sick as he was but I am glad I skipped the family function yesterday.
The way I figure it….someone was sick Christmas Eve and that’s why the boy and I were sick on the same day? Maybe I’m wrong but it is strange that we were sick on the same day especially since we rarely see each other. The Boy had it way worse than I did but still…a germ is a germ. If I went yesterday then I would be responsible for a bunch of people ending/starting the New Year with a stomach bug. I’m sad I missed everyone but happy to not share germs.
I was extra happy to wake up this morning with no neck pain and I slept in until a reasonable time 9am, not 10:15 like yesterday. Thankfully someone sent me a text that woke me up yesterday or I might have slept all day. If I woke up today with the slightest feeling of illness I would have canceled my visit with KW. Her husband finished his radiation treatments a couple of weeks ago so there is no way I would risk it. I scrubbed everything down with OnGuard and burned some sage to make sure it was as germ free as possible. We stayed in the living room where the boy rarely goes and I stayed out of yesterday.
I’m so glad it worked out. She had a lot of things she needed to talk through and so did I. She even suggested that we get together once a month for a spiritual/witchy activity. It’s a blurred line as to who will be responsible for which? I think I might try my hand at making the self igniting incense and that could be my project. I shared some of my stash with her today and burned a sample and she loved it as much as I do.
I asked her if she ever read http://www.clarissapinkolaestes.com/women_who_run_with_the_wolves__myths_and_stories_of_the_wild_woman Funny thing is….this is the book she read that started her journey of leading talks and workshops. How strange is it that I am currently reading this book? There were so many synchronicities today…it was definitely meant to be. It was also just what I needed and I think that feeling was mutual.
I have always learned so much from her and we get each other…not everyone gets me. This isn’t our first time on this planet together…we have both said that over the years. There are a couple of my friends that I can also say that about. I have said it before and I will say it again…I have the best friends and I love my tribe! I am very blessed.
I saw on the news the horrid weather other parts of the country are experiencing…ice, blizzard like conditions, and snow. So I won’t complain about the cloudy, rainy, dreary day we had here in Ohio….even if I’m ready for bed and it’s not even 7pm. It could be worse…if this was snow it would be a foot or more…Zia
