Today was another mild flare day coupled with a cold and no voice, but it was still an overall good day.
I woke up with a fever, sinus congestion, and no voice. My back was hurting a bit more than usual and my joints are inflamed particularly my hands again.
I was fortunate to have a lazy day which I was very grateful to have. I lay on my couch for the better half of the day while watching movies with my kids and husband. My dad visited for a few hours, so that helped keep up the spirits.
Late in the day our family met my mom at the mall to shop and eat dinner. It was good for me to get out of the house and take a leisurely stroll. Mild exercise, for me, is good for flares and achy joints. We had a nice visit with my mom and the kids got to burn some energy. We were all happy.
Of course, coming home to get out of “real” clothes and back into pjs was the best feeling! Haha I really do not like being out of comfy pjs. Real clothes hurt.
I prepped some Korean meat for tomorrow’s dinner in order to have an easy going day tomorrow.
I hope to make it to church tomorrow. I haven’t been in weeks because I’ve been sick. I’m sick again, but I hope to muscle my way through it. I need it right now. I feel like I’m not as close to God as I want to be because I’ve been away from His word for so many weeks.
Yes, I’m guilty of straying from reading my bible when I miss church. It’s a bad habit, but one I intend to break.
Tonight I’m ending the day with inflamed hands, throbbing feet, and achy shoulders, but a full-of-love heart and happy thoughts. May tomorrow bring positive energy and feelings of wellness.
