Yesterday afternoon I came home exhausted after a couple hours of meetings at church and prepping for the evening rehearsal. I lay down in hopes of getting a second wind. Unfortunately, my body aches increased and I could tell I was coming down with something.
I dragged myself to rehearsal last night. The choir was patient with me. Eileen was not well enough to attend this rehearsal.
This morning I am still not a hundred per cent. I have canceled rehearsals for today in hopes that I can rest and get better.

Ugh. Sorry you are ill. I love you.
Careful. I think if you google it, you’ll see that “illegals” is a pretty hurtful term.
Sorry. I certainly didn’t mean to be hurtful when linking in a story about children killing themselves!
