Last week I got pneumonia. Who knows how or why or... how?!
We had a nice weekend, last weekend. On the 13th Jason, Monica, and I went to Duluth for the day. I had a little bit of the sniffles the day before but otherwise felt fine. Monica was getting over a cold. We left early in the morning (okay we left at 7:10am. Not that early. But we were at an engagement party for some friends of ours the night before so we were out late that night), thankfully it was BOGO day at Caribou so once we picked Monica up we took advantage of the buy one get one free deal. We also stopped at Tobies on the way to have some delicious cinnamon rolls. Sadly it was misty and kinda rainy the whole drive up, so the fall colors weren't as spectacular as they should have been. We still had a good day. Did a little shopping, went to The Vanilla Bean Cafe (where Jason and I ate before we got engaged 2 years ago), walked around, went to this kinda creepy second hand store where I bought a few books.... We came home and I made us pizza and took care of Monica as she was still feeling sick. Here are some pictures from our day:
I also read 2.5 books (I know. I'm a slow reader.. I only had 5 days where I could read!!) Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea are marvelous sick time reading books :) Thanks to my mother, I have the whole series. She gave them to me when I left home for the first time, and I've gotten good use out of them. Maybe it's something I'll pass on if Jason and I have a little Megan of our own one day? Not sure I can part with them! I guess I have plenty of time to think about it ;)
So all of you pneumonia free people reading this blog (maybe I'm the only one reading this blog.. but I'm not pneumonia free yet!), take a nice deep breath. Twist to the left and the right for the fun of it (since you can!). Lay down flat on your back in your bed and rejoice that you can do that! Maybe run through the house and laugh while you are at it.
And everyone must read Anne of Green Gables soon! I still cry no matter how many times I've read it!
