Oh, sweetie. Hope you feel better soon!

I am much better today. Still cold. And it is 80F in my apartment. But then the elderly are notoriously cold all the time. I am still taking in liquids like I am going to dry up any moment. My son was still sick last night. And my middle son stopped by to check on me. So I have enough care going on around me. I have on this heavy, very heavy fleece bathrobe that comes down to my feet. I am slowly warming up. My next adventure is to try and eat something.

Whenever I get "chilled to the bone", Addie, I just jump into the shower and crank it to "cook-me". After about 30 minutes of that, I wrap into a warm set of clothes and I'm good-to-go!

I sure hope you start feeling better. I'm starting to get where I don't want to go to the market. It seems like every time I do, someone coughs some sort of bug on me.

Stay warm and get well!

Just came back from a meeting with a counselor from Human Resources Canada. I am considering a retraining program called Second Career. Looking into becoming a dietitian, or nutritionist in the Health Service sector. Will require going back to school for up to two years. It's a great program and something that may give me a chance for secure employment for the rest of my working days......So, I am researching all avenues of these possibilities....
