I'm currently down with a horrible cold. My immune system went down (the monthly thing) so I became susceptible to the virus. It's the kind that requires me to just pause and rest so it'll go away after the usual interval it's due (without proper rest, there's a possibility it will linger for weeks), but the thing started on Saturday and I was crazy busy the entire weekend, so, here I am, still miserable with it. Saturday, Marguerite had ballet (her teacher told me how well-behaved she was that day - to make up for the previous Saturday's ruckus, I suppose, lol). After that we went to a children's party (7th birthday of Spring - my friend Trec's eldest child - Trec is the baking whiz behind Little Cakes Factory). I'm sharing pics from the party at the bottom of this post. It was so great to see our friends again. Trec and I officially met in UP, although we had both gone to St. Scholastica as well. It's been about a year since I had last seen Trec (we saw Marc and the girls - Spring and Danie, who's Marguerite's age) a couple of times a few months ago at the first ballet school we tried out for Marguerite). Trec and Marc just had a baby boy (Caleb) too, and it was our first time to meet him. For some reason, Marguerite's party name tag said "Marga", lol. The lady probably thought Marguerite was too long and decided to shorten it to Marga, hee. After the party, we went to church for the Music Ministry meeting. Sunday, we had church in the morning. We went home for lunch and went right back to church after eating for the Christmas pageant practice. I had a little bit of rest after this and just shot the breeze with my friend Maf while watching Chip teach the dancers the choreography for their Christmas party number. After this, it was time for caroling practice, so... yeah, my cold is festering to date. My plan of attack against the buggers is to just stay in bed and drink lots of fluids the entire day. I also believe in feeding a cold, so I'll be munching nonstop as well.
