Long week. Dad passed on the 25th of July. His birthday was yesterday (Tuesday). Sis had her cancer surgery Monday. She is doing well, miserable, but well. Me? I went to the Doctor’s this morning with a stuffy head, drainage, body aches, no fever, and a bad raspy cough.
The doctor kinda looked at me and said, “Stress.” I didn’t think about that. I am under so little stress since my stroke and I have such a different outlook on life that I forget stress can still get to me. So, I am sick – I am stressed. Okay, I will get better – am getting better.
I used to play a card game called “Magic the Gathering” (ooh and aah). Well, I played and I shared it with my students and met with a group of them after school once a week. We had fun and they learned to play nicely together. I collected the cards and gave them or traded them to the students as a reward for behavior or whatever. We all enjoyed the time. Of course, that buying of cards to sell meant buying bulk cards at a good rate. I now do not play, so I have been trying to sell the lot of them (or most, I still want to maybe play). Well, I found someone to buy them and we are meeting later this week. The final sell count was just over 49,000 cards…YES, I wrote that right… over forty-nine thousand cards! I am pleased to be selling them and I am pleased to have them out of my house. I kept several hundred for myself, but that’s a small amount that won’t take up a lot of room. However, getting them out and separated and counted…wow! I am tired and still sick…But, it is done.
So, tired, sick, and somewhat happy, plus glad Sis is fine. I guess I will call it a day. DAY!
