The title of this blog refers to a time when one of my friends, Heather,was going to go and canoe on a river. I can't remember why I didn't go this particular year but as we parted the night before she left my final words to her were, "Don't drown." I know, I am very sensitive and always know the right thing to say. Heather and I should write a blog about some of those canoe trips as young singles. There were lots of highlights like the guy who, because he was a boy scout, decided that he knew everything about starting a fire only to burn off his own eyebrows. We have some good stories from those days and would make another post entirely.
Onto the rest of the story, I haven't been blogging because I just haven't felt like it. Its crazy I know but I haven't felt like doing much of anything these past few weeks as my cough as gotten increasingly more awful. I went to urgent care on Saturday after work (my regular dr was on vacation) and I got an antibiotic and another inhaler to take with the other inhaler I already have. I am feeling a bit better but must have pulled some muscles near my rib cage becuase now it hurts to cough. So I have been spending my weekends on the couch trying to squeeze in a few moments of rest. I actually did stay home for two days on the 5th and 6th of June. I even went home early last Friday. So I am trying. My boss has been really good about it so I feel comfortable if I don't feel good I could leave early and it not be a big deal.
In other news, less than a month before I go with Mom and Frau Bailey to see my Uno Kidney sister and give her a baby shower. I am so excited about that. I have planned enough baby and wedding showers that this should be a lot of fun. Mom and I fly to Boise on July the 16th and stay until the following Monday and then I'm off to Youth conference for a few days to help out. I will have full baby shower reports for you upon our return.
I bought 3 books yesterday. I know I have a problem.
I've been on my feet at work from 11:30 until now (1:45pm) when I could take a short break while I have some people trying on clothes.
I love air conditioning.
That is all!
