It has been two weeks since my last post. I thought I was on a roll with writing a weekly post. Until…
My husband and I went out-of-town for our 16th wedding anniversary two weeks ago. I was looking forward to writing about our trip, but then I came down with a cold virus after returning on Sunday night. And so as viruses go, I have had the classic symptoms nasal congestion, cough, fatigue and a general icky feeling. It isn’t the flu (thank God) because I can still function. Barely.
Right now, my son is sick with the virus and I’m counting the days until it hits my husband. I’m praying the zinc and Vitamin C are doing their job. Everyone with a husband knows they are sometimes worse than children when they are sick.
In the meantime, I am reading The China Study. I must explain that I don’t read for leisure but for information. So far, this book has been one of the most informative books I have ever read. It is also easy to read and understand. I get lost in technical speak, especially when it is about scientific research and statistical data. The China Study has confirmed my own suspicions I have had about our Western diet and diseases, which Dr. Campbell refers to disease of “affluence”. There is so much I want to share like the circumstances behind how this book was suggested to me and my husband and my thoughts about
diet health and nutrition. I am just not able to get my thoughts together while we have this visitor here.
Until this viral visitor decides it has over-stayed its welcome, I’ll be forced to play nurse Tammy until it leaves.
Here I am during our anniversary weekend. It was the calm before the storm.
Oh, to be feeling 100% again!
