No, Really, I Am Sick Again!

Yes, I am sick again. This time I can't breathe. Through my nose yes, but my chest is working hard to get airtime. You know how I like to share anatomy lessons with pictures and diagrams of the condition, but my searches showed up with nothing that wouldn't gross you out. I really do not think my buddies want to see a picture of bronchial tubes with mucus build up! This is what is seriously constricting my air intake. I am back in bed, on antibiotics, and typing this post on my laptop because my late afternoon nap is keeping me from sleeping.

Okay, I will share another little tidbit about myself. I am too cheap to go see a movie in the theater. Yeppers, that is the way it is. In fact, the last time I was in a theater was to see Nemo. It was a birthday party for one of my kids' friends. It was the other parents' treat. You see, when your husband designs home theater systems for a living, I get kind of spoiled on the comforts of home while watching a movie with our wonderful system Rhea installed.

All this to say, that the only times I can think of a time where I actually wanted to go to the theater was to see Facing the Giants and to see Fireproof. But no, I did not give in to my desires. I waited and waited and then kept thinking, when will the dvd ever come out? I enjoyed Facing the Giants when it came out on DVD.

Finally, tonight, I got to watch Fireproof. It was so well done too. Excellent material. I cried more when he apologized to his mother than when he and his wife reconciled. Okay, I am assuming you have seen it. I need to take my last round of meds and try to get some sleep.


  1. Thanks for the spoiler. Some of us still have it the queue. :-P

  2. Hi Shannon - Thanks for the encouraging words on my blog. I am grateful for your prayers! I hope you feel better soon.


    P.S. Designing home theater systems sounds like fun! We only have a 20-inch tv screen for watching movies at home...and I rarely get out to the movies. I'll have to check out Fireproof now that it's on DVD.

  3. You're too spoiled! The last movie I saw in the theaters was HSM2 with Peyton! Enjoy your movie time, and stay on those meds - get better soon!!!

  4. UGH...so sorry ou are sick again! but happy to hear you passed your physical! hip hooray! i, too, am too cheap to go to the theatre!!! and then when i go to rent a movie i am like "whaaat? $5 to rent a movie?' i am just cheap...pure and simple...cheap!

    hope you feel better sooooon!

  5. Hope you're feeling better!

    I LOVED Facing the Giants as well. The scene where the player carries his teammate as far as he 'thinks' he can is so unbelieveably powerful! I haven't seen Fireproof yet and I know I won't be disappointed!

  6. i am so sorry you are sick!!! i hope you are feeling much better now!

    i have yet to see Fireproof, although i heard it was excellent! i'll have to check it out!

  7. I have not seen fireproof yet but loved the others :) Hope you are doing much better now. I am so totally opposite to you, going to the movie is a favorite thing of mine but I RARELY get the treat to do it! I would love one of those systems you spoke of especially if it is BIG. Getting harder and harder for me to see the tv.

    big hugs

  8. Wasn't that a wonderful movie!!! Very realistic on the firefighter side (so says my resident fireman), and very God honoring :)
