Proud little gymnast

photo (5)eMaisie stopped today after her practice to have her picture taken in front of the 9.0 board.  At Maisie’s gym after each meet they post the names and scores, by level, of all the gymnasts who attain a 9.0 or better.  Maisie was very proud to have her name on the board for Saturday’s Summer Fun Meet(She wishes that her name was spelled properly but still proud to be there.)

While Maisie was at the gym for her practice I was at urgent care.  I haven’t been feeling well for a couple of days and have been running a low-grade fever.  By this afternoon my fever was no longer low-grade, my ears and head were killing me and I couldn’t swallow without it feeling like razors in my throat.  photo (1)I had a long wait for the lone doctor and was bored so I snapped a picture of myself.  The really sad part about this picture is that as cr@ppy as I look and as bad as the picture is, both are way better than how I was actually feeling.  I’m hopeful that when I wake tomorrow after today’s breathing treatment, shot of prednisone and the first two pills of a Z-Pak I’ll have a bit of energy and be feeling a lot better.

Now on to something a whole lot better looking than my mug, a bit of food p0rn to tempt you to make something delicious.  Cheaters Chicken SoupSince I'm sick and it hurts to swallow some Cheaters Chicken Soup is just what the doctor ordered…well that and a lot of drugs.  Click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.
