I haven't been "sick" with a cold or bug for quite awhile. I've had the usual migraine and sinus problems, but nothing that has drug me down. I think it finally caught up with me. I am tired and achey with a scratchy throat. I started yesterday morning with good intentions, but after completing a couple of things that had to get done (and I did organize 1 drawer), I spent the rest of the day on the couch watching silly "reality" TV shows. I got up to put wood in the fire and that was about it.
Then, when I looked at the clock and realized Steve was due home soon, I drug my backside off the couch and did the chores. Going out to feed the sheep, horse and chickens pretty much wiped me out. Steve and Lyndsey were on their own for dinner, and I went to bed about 9 pm. I spent the night alternating between being cold and hot, so when I got up, I took my temperature, but no fever.
I do have some things I have to do today and tomorrow, so I can't lie around. I am loading up on fluids and taking some OTC pain meds for my headaches. Luckily it doesn't seem as bad as I've heard other locals describe.
I just am whining... Thanks for listening!
