My good girl is under the weather

One of the difficult parts of being in an LDR is not being there when she needs a good hug.

One of our rituals is that she calls every morning before she goes to work. When it was past her usual time, I realized my phone was off the hook and figured she had called and got a busy signal. I figured she was already driving to work. So I called her cell and left a message and texted her that I was sorry I missed her.

She called a half hour later to say she wasn't feeling well -- fever and scratchy throat -- and was staying home from work. I put her back to bed but it's frustrating not being there for her. I can only hope she recovers quickly.

She's due to visit Thanksgiving and I will be counting the days.

  8. My Sir has COPD so if he even thinks I might be getting sick, I am isolated. He says go to your bedroom or Julie's house or visit a kid, don't come near me. At first I felt awful. Wanted more attention until he reminded me that even a sniffle can send him into intensive care. Now I take care, avoid grandchildren when they're ill and isolate myself if I think I might be coming down with something.

    But, I still wish I got the extra special attention and care when I get sick which thankfully is rare.

  9. I understand you wanting that extra special attention when you get sick. But good to hear it is rare that you get sick.
