Plans Foiled, It's alright.

 It started Friday night with a tight chest and then by the end of the show I had a total man voice.

  ---And I wasn't even screaming!
I woke up Saturday morning with no voice,
            a wicked sore throat,
 a fever, aches, chills, the whole shebang.
      So, no neighborhood clean-up,
  no planting seedlings (sorry lil guys!),
                no backyard BBQ.

I have awesome friends who take care of me.
(Because in case I forgot to mention, E was away again all weekend.)

Lydia whisked me away with a mug of tea & honey and a pile of comfy blankets, and we spread em all out and took a nice cozy nap at Elm Park under the glowing sunshine. Later on, my friend (more like sister) Abby called and demanded that I tell her what I needed from the store. All I could think of is what anyone ever asks for when they're sick: ginger ale, and she showed up a half hour later with that plus Ben & Jerry's.

& since Saturday I've watched the following movies:
-Coffee & Cigarettes (one of my favorites)
-Romeo & Juliet (the one with Leo and Claire, sigh)
-Dangerous Liaisons
-Billy Elliot
-Marwencol (a fantastic documentary)

So, I'm taking this as some much-needed time for catching up on my sleep.
I'm not exactly a huge fan of sleep when there's fun to be had, so I guess this is necessary.
The only bummer is that it fell right in the middle of my weekend, and it's been amazingly warm out.

Oh, and here is MewithoutYou:

I'm in lerve.


  1. Aww that so stinks. Sounds like you had some pretty fabulous friends and movies to make it better though. Why is it that the men always have to be gone when you need them most?? Odd how that works...

    Hope you have a wonderful day!
