The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Ever have one of those days that starts out fine, and suddenly goes south when you get sick? That was today for me. I was so miserably freezing cold all day yesterday in the office, and woke up this morning still freezing. I was so cold my stomach hurt. (Perhaps I should have paid more attention to that sign.)
I remembered wandering around a Loft Outlet store a while back, and seeing layered cardis on the mannequins. That seems like a super warm idea. I didn’t have time to work out the cardi-layering, but I did manage to pile on a camisole, a cardigan, and a blazer. I even added winter slacks.
Still freezing. Still got sick. Ugh. The Teen is sick, too, and I’m worried her sickle cell disease will flare up. We’re a merry crew 😛
But I came out swingin’ for a few hours…

Cancer took another wonderful person from our lives today. She was a truly graceful, inspiring woman who embraced the spirit of love and life to the very end. My husband, a cancer survivor, likes to say, “Ain’t none of us got no lifetime guarantees.” It’s a reminder to live in the present, and let those you love know every day how much they mean to you.
