Get Well Self!

oh dear me

Well this is going on day 50 bajillion of being seriously sick and it is driving me nuts!  I went to the doctors on Wednesday and Thursday and thankfully got some antibiotics, medicated eye drops, and medicated nasal spray.  For most of the week both of my ears have been infected, my sinuses, and both my eyes.  Not hot.  But you know what, I'll get better eventually.  Being sick while watching coverage on all of this tragic chaos in Japan is just, ah, you know, being super sick is nothing compared to what so many Japanese people are going through right now.  I'll get better.  And I'm really praying that the world can rally together to help Japan and it's people get better too.  The videos I've watched of the waves coming in were just mind blowing.  I found myself yelling at the screen saying, "GO cars, GO drive away from the wave!"  It didn't feel like I was yelling at a movie or something, it was like I could just imagine seeing my own family almost becoming enveloped by a wave and I just wanted to save them.  I wish I had all the billions of dollars needed to rebuild the buildings, to buy everyone food and clothes, new homes and cars.  I don't have that money.  But I'm trying to figure out a plan as to how I can help out.  For those of you who live off of very little like me, do you have creative ideas of how you can help Japan?

As for the week ahead...
I am really really hoping I can feel at least 40% better by Monday so I can get back to work.  Oh man I have so much work to catch up on.  Yikes.  So I emailed a few of my favorite blogging friends to see if anyone was interested in doing a guest post this week.  I was SO excited to see that a ton of awesome ladies signed up almost immediately. So this coming week, I'll be taking a little break so I can focus on catching up on work.  But I have some really awesome guest post's lined up so the blog won't be so quiet like it has been this week :)  You might even see a few of your favorite bloggers show up, and a few who could become some new favorites for you.  They're some of my favorites :)

So be sure to check back everyday this coming week, starting tomorrow, to see what mystery guests will be showing up on my blog!  And keep Japan in your thoughts and prayers.  If you have a few extra thoughts to go around, you can go ahead and tell the universe that I would really appreciate getting better soon.  :)
