Today I am breathing again. Metaphorically anyway. Some, not all of the pain is gone and I had a good sleep last night. Things are looking up!
I'm giving myself a bit of a break from biking, but I will get back to it soon. I'm still so stuffed up, my ears are popping and my head's a bit achy - believe me, I'm the worst "sick" person ever. I actually feel indignant when I get sick, like "why me!?!" "What did I do to deserve this?" "I eat my veggies, take my vitamins, wash my hands etc, I shouldn't be sick...this must be a mistake!!" It never does any good but I whine anyway. I get very cranky and stomp around the house looking for the kleenex box. I'm telling you I should have bought shares in Kleenex the way we go through it around here. My daughter can go through a box of Kleenex in a day, easy. The garbage can in the bathroom is full yet they don't even look like they were used. I know, gross topic eh?
I can be sick for about two days tops, then I just want to get back to normal life. One day is kind of nice...lay on the couch, stay in my jammies all day, drink gingerale, spend hours on Pinterest or read a trashy novel...it's wonderful. Day two and I'm starting to get restless...maybe I should get up and vacuum as I'm feeling really useless. I watch a movie or two and then I'm really getting stir crazy. But I can't put my glasses on because my sinuses hurt so I have to stay in...but there's nothing good to eat so I should go to the store...because when you're sick you know that calories don't count. You didn't know that? It's a well known fact - you can eat whatever you want when you're sick because the extra calories work hard to fight the nasty sick cells in your body. So now you know. You're welcome.
Well, it's time to warm up my Anti-Stress Microwaveable Neck Pillow with Lavender and Chamomile and go lay down so my sinuses will clear. Now THAT's too much information!!!
But, before I go, here's a few pictures of my snowdrops now blooming. I know you folks out east buried in snow will be sooooooooo jealous but they just make me smile so thought I'd share:
