Death warmed over, to lethargic.

I have just a cold, I think.  But this sucker has me whipped.  On the bright side, I actually called and cancelled some of my volunteer work, rather than trying to tough it out.  I have done the 'suck it up and go', to no one's benefit. 

Guess that's a side benefit of the backbone transplant, maybe? 

As you can see by the title, I am not ready to run any foot races.  In fact, I haven't walked... since... Uh.  Saturday?  I have coughed and sneezed, and taken in enough liquid to irrigate a small garden.  But I haven't walked.  Other loverly femaley things, too.  So, when I weighed in today, I wasn't expecting much.  I gained .8, but you know what, I don't care.  It's not what I want, but I am going to just let it ride, and work on getting better right now.  Husband hasn't gotten sick yet, or Mom when she was by, though both have been around me during this nonsense.  I have washed my hands until they are chapped, and cleaned every thing that I touch, so hopefully no one else will get it. 

I have watched TV, (well, mostly on the computer, but...), and I have knit.  I have sat for so long, that I finished the second little kid's sock, and one adult sock, working on the second one. 

Rudee keeps looking so confused that we aren't out walking.  Bless him, Husband has taken out Rudee for play time, since I just don't have it in me.  I get what I have to taken care of, then sit and sneeze, cough, or just flat out pant for a while.  It's so fun being me, at the moment, she says with heavy, heavy sarcasm.  Ick.

I guess the annoying thing is that I am getting healthier, and so I am not getting sick as often.  But when I do, whoa, Nelly, I get it BAD.  So, I eat the chicken soup, drink liquids, and try not to dribble on anything. 

I haven't even been looking on blogs or anything of late, so I will have a lot of catching up with my blog friends when I am feeling better.  Please forgive my absence, I would have just sneezed on your blog anyway... 

Will return to the land of the non-sneezy soon. I hope...


  1. You are sick - do what you gotta do to get better, and yep, was a good idea to pass on the volunteer stuff, it wouldn't be helpful to anyone. That .8# is probably stuff that you will blow out or cough up anyway, now is not the time to even think about your weight! Get better!!!

  2. Being sick sucks. It drains all ambition... I guess I don't have to tell you that!
    I hope, day by day, that you begin to see a little more energy and begin to feel better.

  3. Hope you feel better soon! It's amazing at times how stuff like that wipes our butts. Get better!

  4. Late Winter colds stink. Here's hoping that you are feeling better soon, and that this miserable cold is just a distant memory.

  5. Oh dear-warm thoughts and warmer days to you! Feel better soon! Being sick a bed is the pits! Take care!!

  6. I'm playing catch up on my reading so I hope by now you are feeling better!


Hi! What have you to say today?
