Whiney Week

This has been an absolutely cruddy week. I returned home from Iowa on Sunday, got sick on Monday with an upper respiratory infection and have been feeling lousy ever since. I went to the doctor and he gave me "the works"--antibiotic, steroid shot, cough medicine, nose spray--all of which helped the infection but have made me so sleepy I feel like I'm living in a parallel universe. This is absolutely the strangest feeling, like I'm walking around in my sleep, seeing the world through fuzzy glasses. My cats are annoyed with me; I have not encouraged them to play with me. The one thing I managed to get done on schedule was water my grass. I'm having some planting done and I'm following orders to water every day--we're in the midst of a drought. I spent most of the week dozing, reading, watching TV shows that did not require thinking. I hate being this way, behind on everything but without enough energy to care. Is that one year older making a difference? I hope not. Hopefully, I'll be my usual cheery self in a few days.

Thelma, I'm sure you'll be back to your cheerful self as soon as you're feeling better. I think we all tend to feel groggy and "out of it" when we're not feeling our best. To make matters worse, medication which makes one drowsy has the effect of leaving one lethargic. I hope you feel better soon! :)

I'm sure once you've recovered you'll be back to normal! Hang in there!

Hang in there! A few months ago I was battling pneumonia (luckily not a bad case) and I pretty much did nothing for days and weeks on end. It's all you can do to get out of bed. We'll see you when you feel better! On another note, where in Iowa? My sister moved to Clive a few months back. Our parents are there now visiting.
