It all started with our parish Vacation Bible School back in June. Right after that finished, I took off for Ireland of my dreams; a day after returning from over the ocean I took a group of teens on mission trip to St. Ann's parish on the Turtle Mountain Reservation in Belcourt, ND; after a week of that we drove 9 hours back to St. Paul to join up with the parish group going to the (totally awesome - details next post) Steubenville North II youth conference held this past weekend. By the time Sunday evening rolled around, I was completely beat and feeling miserable. Today I felt lousy enough that I went in to the "Minute Clinic" again - turns out that I not only garnered beautiful memories of my summer adventures, but that I've also been blessed with a bout of pneumonia. Yay.
So, since the doctor ordered me off of work for the rest of the week and on "bed rest, or at least rest near a bed", I just might be able to work on that puzzle of the Cathedral in Orvieto (that I found randomly in a tiny gas station in the middle of nowhere in northern North Dakota - weird) after all. Maybe I can catch up on my blogging too - hey, I can blog while resting on my bed, just following doctor's orders! :)
Oh, and here's my photos from Ireland if you missed them on the other blog:
