It got me

Yes.. it's true.. a winter cold has finally gotten me.  The heaviness in my chest.. the scratchiness at the back of my throat.. the lack of desire to get out of bed.  Oh wait.. that's normal.

I have founght a good fight, but must confess... tempuratures in the teens is too much for me.  I live in the desert!  We consider it really cold when it's in the 30's (insert wimp comment here).  Yes.. I admit.. I prefer the cold to the heat ( I know I know..."Then why do you live in the desert?").. but waking up to a tempurate of 16 F with a windchill that knocks it to -20 is too much for my immune system.

I promise to drink lots of fluids.. lemon water, specifically.  I promise to get more rest..well.. more than 5 hours per night.  I promise to test more often..now where is that box of lancets. 

Please pass the cough drops and the tissues.

  1. Feel better dear friend. Stay hydrated, test often, watch for ketones, all the shit you already know. Hoping this cold passes and your Easter Island head feels better too. Your picture makes me giggle.

  2. Sorry about that. I know we are all feeling the cold too! Finally got warm after the wind stopped. And now the other two kids who haven't had a fever and headache are staying in bed today, which means I can't go anywhere today. OR at least until Victor gets back from working on a generator.

    Hope you feel better soon, too! Cold's in the cold are worse than cold's in the warm, imo. I like heat better than cold any day!

    1. I like cold better, but that's just me. There is just something about not feeling well, and being able to curl up on the couch with a blanket. It's hard to do that when it's 110 outside.
