Alright already

I'm sick.

Cold and flu sick, not "I need surgery" sick. So I stuck around the office most of the day, answering mail, working on some pieces I need to have written, general office stuff. Just trying to stay away from the care homes and older people who don't need to get sick.

My goal was to stay within three feet of a box of Kleenex, which I suceeded at although there was one close call.

Generally it's progressed through the day getting worse, running more, aching more. But this too shall pass, if Lauralea and Micah are any indication.

I have a bit more work to do to prep for Sunday which I'll do tomorrow.

I need to be lots better by Sunday. It's our formal acceptance into ministry here and no one wants to lay hands on a runny nose, teary eyed, mouth breathing shepherd guy.

Besides, Sunday afternoon the Grey Cup final game is on and I don't want to miss that.


  1. (Is that the right spelling? My German is pretty weak.)

  2. Two advil, one glass of red wine and sleep with a hot water bottle under the back of your neck. If you wake up, you might feel better. Take care.

  3. Bummer ! It will pass my friend, and the Holy Spirit can work through bunged up sinuses and throats. It's bunged up hearts that are more complex, but that doesn't seem to apply here.

    I wanted to say 'go with the flow', but hope that doesn't sound insensitive...

  4. You should be getting a flu shot. Seems to me over the year you have had a few colds. With the number of people to whom you minister, it would be in order for the whole family to get one- protects you and them. In Sk they are free to ministerial and those more at risk. Ron and I have been less afflicted since having them! Someone said you should rub Vick's Vapo Rub on your feet and cover with socks at bedtime. Good for whatever ails you. Oil of Oregano is also the latest - it scares it out of you worse than Buckley's!!!!

  5. I usually do get a shot, but with the timing of the move, mine got lost in all the activity.

    SASK give a freebie to clergy? Why did I never know that?


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
