Another Whiney Post

I think I am getting sick. It's a weird sick, though, in that I can "feel" it coming, but am not full-out sick yet. Perhaps I will get lucky and it will just stay a small cold, but each day, I seem to feel a little worse.

It started with the aches and pains that I wrote about yesterday. My whole body was achy, almost flu-like, especially my abdominal area and legs. Then, I developed this dry, unsatisfying cough.

Last night, the cough settled into a rattling in my chest and a heaviness that is lingering, but the rattly part of the cough has gone away this morning. I don't have a fever and I actually don't feel too sick yet, just under the weather. I am glad it is the weekend and I can stay home with a cup of tea and warm blankets for the next couple of days.

It's been beautiful this week, with lots of sun, almost as if the weather is trying to make up for the SNOW of last weekend. Now that it's Friday yet again, the clouds and drizzle have returned. Oh, well, at least I won't feel guilty for watching crappy tv and staying on the couch all day tomorrow!

I thought I was about to get sick too, but I spent a whole day just laying around and managed to pretty much fight it off. I still have a runny nose and cough, but I don't really feel that bad, so that's a plus. Take it easy this weekend and hopefully you can do the same. (Are germs passed through the internet? Maybe you got it from me?)

I hope you feel better soon. If you do get sick, I hope it goes away quickly!

I hope that you get to feeling much better after a rested weekend!

I hope it goes away! I had something similar last week. It went away for the weekend, then came back again (but much milder) on Monday. Rest up!

Crappy tv and a day on the couch can be good for you. Take care of yourself.
