Sick

I have been telling myself all week that I wasn't sick that it was just my allergies. However when I did a house cleaning job yesterday I realized it was more than allergies. I chilled all night last night and had a stuffy nose. So I have to admit to myself that I have the dreaded common cold. Today I have did almost nothing. Other than fixing myself a frozen pizza to munch on throughout the day. Every time I get up and "try" to clean the house or do something I get weak and end up back on the couch. Thankfully the hubs is going ATV riding and will be gone all night. So I can just lie around and be a bum. It's times like these that I really miss being at home with mom and dad. Mom was the best nurse! She always brought me soup in bed and could always fluff my pillows just so to help me breathe better. It's funny how things like that from childhood stick out in my memory. Mom and Dad always (and still do) have a way of making you feel extra special on your birthday and when you are sick. Come to think of it; this is the first time I can remember ever getting a cold in the summer............the heat makes it worse. Lol, does that mean I will not get sick this winter?

AAWWW Jill Im sorry you are sick. I hope you get to feelin' better soon.

I know whatcha mean about mama's being the best nurses. I remember how mine would put cold wash rags on my forehead and bring me something to eat and drink. Funny too that when Im sick she is all I want. There's noone like Mama.

Feel better soon. Hugs. Tammy

Kope you feel better soon Jill! I have never gotten sick in the summer just the fall, Christmas, and Spring. Drives me crazy. Every Christmas I am so sick must be doing to much during the holiday.

Dear sweet Jill, hope you feel better soon. My mom was the best at taking care of me when I needed pampering too. When I am sick like that I wish I have my mom too! She is three hours away, I think she would probably chuckle if I told her to come I am sick momma! LOL.
well wishes, Angie
