Ringing in Spring Cold Season!

This is what I have been up to this week! The hair is all wrong but when you feel as bad as I do it doesn't matter....everything is off. I cannot remember when I felt this bad. I am not looking for chicken soup or easy to read magazines or puzzle books to pass the time. I am just amazed how a cold can be so miserable! While I ply myself with water, cough drops and cough medicine the usual forms of entertainment just aren't cutting it. 
It all started with lovingly babysitting my granddaughter who was too sick for daycare. We spent time cuddling and I made her comfortable while she was here. Lots of books and a video or two. I never dreamed I would get sick. This has never happened in the fifteen years I have been a grandma! I do not blame her, and I would probably help out again. I think I have finally gotten the answer to the question "What really happens if you are sleep deprived?" It is definitely time to take my insomnia in hand and learn to get true rest.  I need to beef up my immunity! No two ways about it. What is the answer? a sleep journal? Drugs? Goodness I am not going that route! I will think about it later. I can't concentrate anyway.


  1. When I can't sleep I turn on the light and read. And then just lately I discovered videos I can play on my portable DVD player. Got the most boring movie I could find at the library and watch it until my eyes droop. That seems to work fine but sometimes takes a half hour or 45 minutes. Hate to take sleeping pills. I can easily get by on 4 1/2 to 5 hours sleep and function pretty well.

  2. Oh, sorry you aren't feeling well! My husband and I catch stuff from our grandkids all the time. They are sick for two days and we are sick for two weeks. I am just starting to feel better from a virus/flu that hit me hard last week.

    I have enjoyed perusing your blog posts and getting to meet you a bit. Sweet place you have here!

    Kindly, Lorraine
