Morning Meanderings… The Post Where I Am Sick… Oh And I Cry.
Hi! See this picture of me here where I look whimsical, witty, coffee in hard, a glow to my cheeks?
That’s not me today.
Today, I am in the recliner covered in a blanket, surrounded by assorted states of Kleenex, coughing like I really do not need two lungs, and hair that looks like something out of a bad 80′s movie. Yup, that about sums it up.
I am sick.
I guess it was inevitable. All winter long people around me have been taken out for days, weeks even, with some nasty flu bug that does not let go. I pride myself on the fact that I rarely get sick. I snub the yearly flu shot and walk around rarely with a coat… then Friday I started going down hill. While driving to the cities I felt a little tingly (know what I mean?) Saturday morning I woke up with a fever and a cough and a voice that I call “Grover” from Sesame Street.
I blame all this crappy snow and 15 below weather.
Sunday I was up and down, Monday I worked and then faded to the point of cancelling my Monday work out and now I am home here having called in to work for the morning and hoping I can pull myself together by noon so I can go to work for a couple of hours and then run a couple of errands.
At this moment… that idea sounds like a fictional tale.
In other news, I was reading the Shelf Awareness email this morning and read about Lisa Lynch, blogger at Alright Tit. Lisa created the blog after discovering she had breast cancer and her posts reflect an upbeat, and funny look at what she was going through. Always light-hearted, I believe she spoke to other women who also have suffered/are suffering from breast cancer. Her husband and good friend write the current post you see there today letting us know that Lisa lost her fight on March 11th.
Very sad, and did not help my Kleenex shortage over here.
So that is my post. I need to get well. This is a busy week with the Spring Library sale starting on Thursday and I will be helping out after work on Thursday through Saturday. Its going to be fun – and I need to get well.
I have a review to write now and then I think I will relax into my Russian Tea a friend sent over last night saying this was their family “stay healthy” secret. I really should bathe in it.
