high: I had my first knee injections on Monday. Although the pain relief is not expected for another 2-3 weeks, I have high hopes.
low: I got a fever on Monday night (a possible side effect), and was under the weather yesterday.
high: I spent a good deal of time on the couch, watching The Tudors (when the kids were at school).
low: We found out last night that Max's trip to San Francisco with the Utah Valley Youth Symphony was canceled due to sluggish participation. He is so disappointed.
high: I guess we'll be getting a refund! Maybe we can apply it toward the new cello we are hoping to get for him.
low: I had to take Eva to the doctor this morning. She has been on two rounds of antibiotics, but she still can't breathe and has been complaining of a sore throat and aches and pains.
high: It's not a sinus infection!
low: There isn't much you can do for a cold. The doctor prescribed ibuprofen and Gatorade (it's supposed to help with the headaches and body aches)!
low: Although she isn't feeling well, she still has plenty of energy, and always wants me to play with her.
high: I convinced her to make cookies instead. I'd rather bake than play any day.
Highs and lows. That's life. But looking for the highs always helps me when I'm feeling low. (And so do cookies. A little.)
