Consider the Lilies..: October 2015

Still sick..

So. Turns out I have the flu. It seems really weird to be sick for this long.  I expected to be over it days ago.  
Clay is being wonderful as usual, doing all of the housework and running back-and-forth to CVS and I have been grounded to the couch. 
I'm not busy today so at least I will get some reading done and hopefully catch up on some homework. 
Elaine is bringing me some yarn so I can make washcloths for her. Something else to do while I'm watching daytime television. 

I can't really think of anything else to blog about, nothing interesting is going on.

Except for this:
I mentioned yesterday that I didn't have anything to hang all of my jewelry on so Clay went to Menards and came back with a rake and some ribbon.
All of my necklaces (just cheap costume jewelry so don't get any ideas you robbers) all have matching earrings, Clay attached the earrings to the ribbon. I didn't snap a picture of it though. 
Super creative huh?  I don't know where he comes up with this stuff :)

About 6 days ago Clay started feeling under the weather. After day 3 he was pretty miserable. I didn't worry much about catching it. I have an auto-immune disease so I hardly ever get sick. But then right before I went to bed my throat started to hurt a little. 
I still wasn't worried. When I do get sick I'm over it in 24 hours. For everyone else, it takes a few days to fully hit them, a few days staying, and a few days to leave. 
But for me, it hits me all at once and then I'm fine the next day. 
So Tuesday morning when I woke up I felt like I had been hit by a truck. My head was stuffed up, throat hurt, body hurt, I was dizzy, couldn't concentrate, and didn't want to do anything but sit on the couch.   I couldn't even read so I was annoyed too. 
I expected to be all better by Wednesday. I was a little better. My throat didn't hurt and my head had cleared up enough so that I could think straight.  I still felt like I had been hit by a truck but a smaller one.  
Last night sucked. My sinuses were so swollen that I couldn't lay in one position for more than a few minutes, then I would have to turn over so I could breathe again.  Poor Clay finally got up and went to sleep in the guest room. 
We have been taking double doses of vitamin C, echinacea and garlic and this morning I feel a lot better. Just my sinuses are still swollen and in a little tired. But I was able to clean the house when I got up, strip the beds, and Lysol everything. :)
Clay is still pretty miserable. He would probably start to feel better if he would rest for a day but it's almost impossible for him to spend an entire day doing nothing. 

I guess that's enough complaining for one blog post. Have a happy Thursday!
It is Thursday isn't it?  :)
