Decisions always have to be made, right? Hard ones, easy ones and the ones and you don’t want to make.

My latest hard decision is currently concerning an art show in Henderson, Kentucky. I have been sick for over two weeks (two very long weeks) and I have to decide whether or not I’m going to be able to participate in my first art show of the year, which is this Saturday. Yes, just two days from now. I’ve already paid for it and it’s been on my Events page for a while now.

At first it was just a cold, although it seem to go straight to a chest cold. My son lovingly passed it on, I’m sure. The day I took him to the doctor for a cold turned ear infection was a cold changer for me. That evening I got the chills and was freezing. But then it went away and I was just tired… and coughing.

I absolutely hate to go to the doctor. Decisions must be made though and after enduring two weeks of hacking up my lungs, I finally did make the decision to see the doctor. It turned out to be a good decision because I had bronchitis and needed antibiotics to be rid of it.

I’ve only been on the meds since Tuesday evening and this is just Thursday. I only wish I had gone to the doctor sooner, maybe I wouldn’t be plagued with the symptoms still.

However, I do know my limits and it’s not looking good. I’ve been riding the couch for about 80% of my non sleeping time. Achy and exhausted. I have been doing the absolute minimum as far as household chores and cooking go. It’s not easy when you’re the only one who does such things as cleaning, cooking, shopping, laundry, etc.

Decisions, decisions… what to do. I know what my body is telling me, but my heart says go. Oy vey.

Learn more about me on the ‘About’ page in the menu at the top. I’m an artist – a painter mostly and an avid gardener. I paint a variety of subjects including birds, koi fish, my gardens, ponds and flowers as well as anything having to do with nature especially trees and tropical scenes. I also enjoy painting abstracts and have started created more and more of them. My most favorite thing to try to achieve in my painting is is mystery.
