Returns

I thought about doing a return post full of bullet points and "What Has Happened Since My Last Blog," but that would be extremely unartsy and unfeeling, wouldn't you say? Onward and upward.

It's no secret that Christina stays up later than I do, so her texts have been coming when my slumber restricts me from answering.
psst...you haven't blogged since September.
Dear God, thank you for text messages. Christina and her late night adventures recently followed the call of the Lord to the East Coast. I miss her, but one of the things I have learned in my short life is that when the Lord says to go, it is always worth it to follow. I am honestly so excited for her to experience the fruit and joy of obedience in this time. Go, Christina, go. :) :)

In other news, I'm sorry to announce that I find myself fully qualified to advise you and what to do and what not to do if you should ever (and I hope that you don't) find yourself to have mononucleosis.

DO take time off work. Today I am laying in bed, taking a full sick day for the first time since my diagnosis 6 weeks ago and I should have done this a long time ago.

DO sleep. Obviously.

If you're bored of just laying around, DO listen to a sermon. It's perfect, because you can lay there with your eyes closed, but you don't feel like you're wasting your time should you not be able to fall asleep. An added bonus is that you don't need your eyes. What I mean is, I wear glasses. I want to lie down, because my muscles are tired. Everyone knows that if you lie down with glasses on, the glasses smush into your face, and relaxation is a difficult thing to accomplish when one has something smushing into one's face. If I do something (i.e. listen to a sermon) that let's me lie down AND doesn't require my eyesight, it's a win.

DO have hope. You won't always feel this way.
