The silver lining.

Our patience will achieve more than our force.

The hardest moments are that time between getting up out of bed and settling down behind the computer with a cup of coffee. That is when my chest and back hurt the most and I have the hardest time catching my breath. I suppose the few things I have to do before I actually get to sit down, are still enough of an effort to wear me out and I think that is a clear enough sign that I am not at all better yet. 

I know from other people that this flu hangs on for a while and is not over in a few days time, but I would like to be better by next week when I am already planning all my appointments. I do take a lot of naps, but when I feel up to it, I am on the phone or behind the computer arranging the details of my life.

 Today was a disappointing day, because I got news that two possibilities to help me pay for the costs of moving were not going to work out at ll. I took that really hard, because I had really counted on them, but just as quickly, I gathered my wits about me and started looking at the other solutions and I am working on them really hard. I will, if it is determined by fate, solve this problem. 

Tyke had a good day today, because my sister took him for walks twice along with her own dog. Both times he came home very happy and my sister said that he had a very good time and enjoyed himself a lot. She is going to take him out again tomorrow. The Exfactor had to go up north to Friesland today and could not come over, but I expect to see him in the morning. 

I am getting awfully worn out now and am going to have to go back to bed. I will have to eat something first because, although I am sick, I have not lost my appetite.
