It gets me plum crazy even to have to think of it but 2011, right from its very beginnning, has given me nothing but trouble. The night before New Year’s Eve, I was at 7:00 Mass at O. L. Sorrows & came down with a raunchy flu that lasted for most of January. I wanted to go to the Pro~Life Demonstration in Washington, D.C. on January 24 but I was forced to back down because of below zero temperatures. February came & I got yet another flu. This time it was only temporary but the symptoms were even worse. With the beginning of March & lovely~as~can~be weather, all my major health troubles are gone but I still have a persistent cough. To make things even stupider, yesterday afternoon my father even noticed that my front passenger side tire was flat. I took it to the Citgo station on Wyoming Avenue, & the guy who checked it for me said it wasn’t damaged by a nail or anything else he could find. It was just plum out of air. He filled it up for me with forty lbs. of pressure. All goes well so far. I know it’s easy, from the looks of this post, to get the distinct impression that life for me is a washout. Fortunately that’s not true in general. It’s just been a very tough time lately.
awful first few months of 2011
