Roadblock

Or make that Coldblock. It's been a long time since I've been sick and even though I just have a head cold, it's surprising how it has sapped me. I sure have been appreciating the huge amount of kleenex stockpiled by my mother-in-law though. I think I know why she had a box and trash can beside every chair and bed.

Hubby went through the house and trailer spraying disinfectant on everything I've touched, and I slept on the dinette (made into a bed) last night. Boy is that thing uncomfortable! I hope he doesn't get sick, but I don't think he can keep far enough away.

The drywall people are here today to mud and tape the house. I'd like to watch them but they'd probably appreciate it if I kept my germs away.

Odd things I think about when I can't sleep:

I never noticed the clock was so loud.
I can hear Buddy eating in the middle of the night.
No matter where I put the Kleenex, they are in the wrong place.
How can my feet be so cold when my face is so hot?

I hope you feel better soon. I also hope your husband doesn't get sick. It happens now and then.

Have a healthy day. ♥

Thanks, I need it. Buddy is here sleeping beside me. It's nice to have SOMEONE who isn't afraid to be near me or follows me around with a can of disinfectant. lol

Marti said...

Thanks. Me too. I could easily take a nap right now, but I can't seem to breathe when I lay down.

Marti - I hope you feel better soon - have you tried chicken noodle soup? Or tomato soup with a crusty bread? I haven't had a cold lately, but I usually find hot foods help clear the nasal passages, at least temporarily ...

I've been eating a lot of soup, including chicken noodle. It's good but I can't tell it makes any more difference than taking a Sudafed. I'm much much better now. Just a little congestion and everything smells weird.
