2009 has not had the best beginning for the Bag Lady. She's been sick since before New Year's Eve.
She and the Rancher spent a very quiet New Year's Eve at home. The Rancher watched Clint Eastwood movies on television while the Bag Lady mostly studied the decor in the bathroom! (She really needs to paint in there....)
The weather remains cold and slightly depressing. But the Bag Lady and the Rancher and his mom made the journey into town over treacherous roads for the annual New Year's Day feast at the Rancher's brother's house. And it was well worth it. Fabulous food, great company and a good time was had by all. (and the Bag Lady thought she was better before she went or she would have stayed home... but she's pretty sure that everyone there had already been exposed to this virus because she wasn't the only one who was sick!)
She has a physio appointment today that she is going to have to cancel - the nature of this illness is such that she doesn't get a lot of warning between "gee, I need to..." and "uh oh!" Her regular therapist is still away this week, and she has never met the therapist who is supposed to work on her today. And won't, because she really doesn't want to spread this disease around. She's hoping it will be gone soon, so she can resume her normal life.
How was your New Years? Did you have a fabulous time celebrating?
(and you really have no idea how long it took the Bag Lady to write this post, in between trips to study the bathroom decor. That wallpaper has to go. The pattern on it interferes with the shadow pictures you can make with the light from over the vanity.....)
