Thanksgiving

I'ts been a very long weekend. Well, week, really. I had been very fatigued for no reason, and short of breath for a while.Then Tuesday, I came down with a fever. I got rid of that on Thursday, but had a lingering sore throat, and continuous fatigue and shortness of breath. I took Tuesday through Friday off from work, but when in on Saturday. I saw a doctor. (That was an obnoxious ordeal that I don't really feel like repeating. No need to bring up past irritation). I don't have strep, but I'm going in tomorrow ofr a mono test. I've had mono before, but I think this is another....bout, so to speak.

Saturday was one of the busiest Saturday's in a while. Usually, we'll have about twenty transactions on a normal Saturday. This particular day, we had about forty. Today has been one of the busiest Mondays I've had in a long time. A normal weekday, each person will have around fifteen, maybe twenty. Two of our employees are out. One on vacation and one with a sick baby, so both my coworker and I are working a ten hour day, with no break. (We can eat lunch, but if a client comes, we have to help them, so it doesn't really count as a break.) A normal transaction count for me right now would be about twenty-five. Maybe thirty if we got busy. Currently, it's at sixty-one with another two and a half hours to go before we reset the counter. Then another two hours of work after that. If I didn't have a reason to feel fatigued before, I definitely do now. I'm exhausted, and it's only 1:30.

However, thanks to my dearest Spencer, this has not been an unbearable week. Anything I have ever needed, he got for me. Nothing has really sounded good to eat, so it's been difficult eating without getting nauseous. So when I would finally pinpoint the foods that sounded tasty at the time, Spencer was already in the car on the way to the store to get it for me. On top of which, he's made boring sick days fun! I wanted Club Crackers, and he got the Easy Cheese whiz stuff, whatever, to go on them. So we've had fun, making sandwiches out of the crackers and cheese, spelling words and names, and I ♥ U in them. We've also played a countless number of card games, primarily Gin, and watched TV and movies out the wazoo. He even put up with hours of Spongebob for me, which is pure love right there. He would make my meals for me so I wouldn't have to get up, retrieve drinks if I got thirsty, and stayed home with me anytime he could.

Of course, in two weeks, when he is sick with whatever I have (if it's not mono) then I will be doing the same for him. No doubt about it :)

I've been thankful for a lot of things this week, but today's thanksgiving goes solely to Spencer.
Thank you sweetheart for all you do for me. I love you!
