I planned to spend the weekend with friends doing fun things and getting more done in the house. I planned on being able to crave working out each day for 30 minutes by now since its been over two weeks since I started. I planned on being at work this morning at 8:30 ready to face the day & do what I do.
All that got put on hold. My body had other plans.
Woke up feeling worse. Or maybe the same, but knowing I couldn’t feel like this made it feel even worse. I got up, dragged myself to the bathroom to start the morning routine & with tears in my eyes realize it was not happening. I wasn’t crying. More like the eyes watering thing you get when you just feel awful physically. My body still aches, my head is pounding, felt dizzy, stomach is twisted and I can breath thru my mouth still even if my nose seems to be on vacation, but at least mentally the sleep did me well. So I am using the first paid day off of 2012 – as an actual sick day. Bummer.
So back to bed. Popped a couple of pills & chugged down more water. Hoping that resting and sleep will kick this to the curb. So Baxter at least seems happy with my choice.
So why I am blogging instead of snoozing? That would be the parrots. For whatever reason my staying home has them excited & in no mood to stay quiet. Again I am wishing for a bigger house & a dedicated bird room or space. Some way to get away & rest quietly. I love ’em but sometimes…. so instead I will lay here & rest. Dreaming of quieter places. Maybe wish that I hadn’t put my bedroom makeover or moving to another place on hold.
