I Hate Being Sick!

20 Mar

But at least I’m not still green like I was Monday morning.  Now I’m cycling through pale, normal, and flushed depending on what my fever is doing at any given moment. Short story is: I’ve got the flu. Exhaustion, fever, sore throat, cough, then add the complication of me having hypoglycemia (opposite of diabetic, similar symptoms).

Because my body is burning so much energy fighting this illness I have to eat every couple of hours or I get a really bad headache, or worse. Worse is not an option, and is why I was green Monday morning.

Thankfully I have a wonderful husband who meant it when he promised “in sickness and in health”. He has been waiting for me most times I wake up with something to eat, a gentle hug, and “back to bed with you.” Yup, he’s a keeper.

Now let’s just hope this cough doesn’t get any worse, ’cause I already have a couple back muscles that are screaming at me over all the exercise.

What really stinks is that I was poised to really kick things into gear and publish this darn little book of poetry. I had a to do list and everything! It totally figures that the day after I get started on it I come down with something. *sigh*

Prayers and positive vibes are very welcome.

Here’s me hoping you all are having a much better week than me. 🙂



Slow Going

23 Jan

    Yesterday I added 2015 words to my romantic/suspense novel.  At least I hope it’s going to be long enough to be called a novel.  I keep adding words, but it still doesn’t seem that it’s going to end up having a high enough word count to rate above a novella.  Fingers crossed.

In other news:

  • Almost everyone in my sphere is sick…again, including half my family.  I can’t tell if I’m also getting sick, or if this is a result of my falling off my bossy hypoglycemia diet.
  • I wrote a poem that would be perfect for either my book of coffee poems or my book of kitchen poems.  Trying to decide which way to go.  Thinking I’ll wait for a couple more poems and see which subject takes the lead.
  • I’m starting to feel some cabin fever.  Not because I never go anywhere, because it’s so cold outside that I can’t take walks, or do anything else outside really.  Wishing we’d finished the greenhouse this past fall. 


How is your winter going?  Are you getting itchy for spring?  (I can’t wait for gardening, walks, going to the park and swinging on the swings, picnics, and oh so many other outdoor activities.)

If you are a writer, how has your writing been going?  (You don’t have to give me details. Ex. Good, bad, slow, “Dude! I totally just finished the trilogy I started two months ago.)

This is a hole I have been endeavoring to not fall into, but darn it, it’s just so big!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I am going to get some writing done.
