Sickie

Well, I managed through most of the year without catching a cold but on Tuesday I got nailed. I was up for maybe an hour and had to go back to bed. It was a jammie day and I think I was up maybe 3 times an hour each and then I just gave in. 24 hours later I woke up but wasn't wide awake. And that's the way it's been since.

Another storm hit yesterday, all ice sleet and some snow. I was going to blow out the drive and then decided I didn't really want pneumonia on top of this. I was also going to paint but I couldn't get the energy up to do anything.

So I've been on my couch when I'm up or in front of the computer.

Poor Cindy.

Yeah, I'm giving myself some sympathy.

I weigh in tonight. Up till last week I had lost 8 pounds. We'll see what this week brings. I'm thinking water weight and general sicky goo might not be working for me.

I've mentioned Slumpville a few times but now I know it's real. I was thinking that maybe I just wasn't in the mood to read anything BUT auto-buy books.

Well, I have Singh's latest book which I just couldn't wait for and ... nothing. For me, this is as bad as if it was an Anne Stuart book.

Another reason why some serious comfort food will be demanded after weigh in!

Cindy -

I hope opening all those windows to clear out paint fumes didn't make you sick. I will share a little story with you about what might have happened: Many years ago my hubby and I were staying with my mom, who'd recently painted the guest bedroom. The left-over fumes irritated his sinuses so much that it gave him a sinus infection. If you don't get better soon, ask your doctor about that.

Feel better!

TTFN, LLB

Oh Cindy!! I hope you'll feel fine better! 8 pounds is good!! I'm sure you'll lose more with this bout of cold... cos you'll probably won't be eating much. and yeah, don't go out if you don't have to.

LLB - it's amazing what fumes can do to us. I can't use bleach without gucking up my throat and sinuses for a day. Then again, it just doesn't seem clean without it. I have a doctor's appt on the 12th for normal F/U but I have a laundry list of things the poor doc is going to hear about.

Nath - I've decided I don't even feel up to going out to get weighed. I might go Friday during the day but only if I feel better. Normally I feel better as the day progresses when I'm sick but with this one I wake up feeling kinda okay and drop off into the dregs. Ugh. I hope it doesn't last!

I'd say poor Cindy - and I will say poor Cindy but I'm wondering if we got the germs at the same time since I've got a real nasty head cold too!! I've been training a new girl at work and I've been torn as to whether to go in and risk giving her my cold or stay home. I compromised today - I went in for a couple of hours - then came home and slept most of the day.

Awwww Cindy, I'm sorry you are sick, but congrats on the 8 lbs. Yay Cindy!

Feel better soon.

I was disappointed by the latest Singh. It's not that it wasn't good, I just didn't like it as much as the others. (Ah, those damn expectations!) But I've just finished Meljean Brook's new release and it's definitely a keeper.

I hope you're getting some pampering while you're battling the sniffles. May the weighing goddesses be with ya. :-)

I swear, we could be twins. I'm sick, too. Started Sunday for me, though. I'm still sick with it. Haven't been to work since Monday (well, I'm at work now, but that's another story..) and I'm just generally unhappy. *sigh* I need a vacation!

Hope you feel better soon!

I say stay home and be lazy. That's what I've been doing.

Take care, Cindy. I'm really sorry you're sick. Keeping notes and a list of things for your doctor is a great idea.

Take care Honey (and yes 8 lbs is GREAT! I need to lose 8- um, more like 80!- myself!)

I haven't cracked open Singh's yet, hope I have a better time with it!!!
