Hanging in there

          

          The body is an amazing machine.  When your too stupid to slow down and rest when needed it slams into you like a mac truck and screeches you to a stop.  At least it does me.  If I ignore the warning signs and keep doing more then I can possible get done I can assure a good illness.  One that puts me flat on my back and makes me sleep for 24 hours straight.  Like now.  At my age I should know better.  Stop pretending to be super woman idiot.

         So I have a good case of the  flu I think.  My lungs hurt and body screams sleep sleep.  Still have my appetite though, god forbid I lose that for a few days.  I can see my arm reaching up from my open grave.....excuse me, could I have a snack for the trip to tide me over?

        I am thinking this flu is why my lungs and back hurt so bad.  So tea and honey by the gallons, yummy.  I am shutting off the little nagging voice reminding me of all things I have to do and instead am nagging Rick about all the nagging little things he has to do.  Working out great, LOL.

      Last night we rented a movie and watched it.  Crazy Love.  Its a documentary.   So very strange and another look at weird human nature. 
          
        I am hoping to feel better by 7 so I can work but am not really holding out any real hope for it.   So another lazy day.

        My son is thinking of buying his Gramma's house.    That would be so wonderful.  He is going to check in and see what the payments would be.  Keep your fingers crossed.  Let him be the one to evict the BIL.

    Well, bedtime again.  I have about 3 quilts on my bed and am still cold.

I hope you feel better soon. Might be a good idea to not work today. Good luck to your son on buying the house. Helen

OOOh...I'm sorry you aren't feeling well!  I hope you are better soon!  That would be great if your son bought his grandmother's home.  It would be so nice to keep it in the family--I'm sure his grandmother would have liked it.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  Oh how I wish my dad would have been able to keep my grandmother's house!!  Julie :)

I hope you get better soon.  Slowing down is a lesson we all need to learn, but do we listen to our bodies - no!

Lets hope your son can buy the house, that would be good for you all

I hate you are not feeling well, but I do believe you need the break.  You shoulda taken a break when you felt like enjoying it, but I didn't need to tell you that did I?
