Okay, I realize it's only been one day since I wrote a blog. It's been just a couple days with this ding darn cold - but in the world of achoos, coughs, aches and no sleep - it seems like much longer.
I slept better last night. It wasn't great. I was still waking up a lot - but it was better. Better is good. I can breathe a little better. The aches and headache have calmed down a little. I got up a little later - I slept in. Wow, I have weird dreams when I'm sick. I couldn't find my car in my dream. I was looking - it just disappeared. My friends were acting weird. People around me were acting weird. But the interesting thing - I was taking control - in my dream. I was handling it. I wasn't scared. I felt more irritated.
I woke up stretched, got dressed and headed out for a walk. The sun was out, the sky was clear, the ground was still wet - and the city smelled clean. We had two days of rain. We needed rain.
I decided it wouldn't be a long walk. I could still feel my body and it said - take it slow. And I did.
I did do a podcast:
( I do apologize for the sound quality. You can hear the wind blowing. I'll work on that)
I posted some silly pictures on Instagram yesterday of my "stay at home" healing day.
After my walk, I came home and grabbed Ruby, our dog, and headed out to get some gas. $3.29! That's a bargain around here. It's been getting so expensive - but that was great to see this morning. Whoop! Whoop!
Well, it was good to get out a little. But I'm still feeling coldy. (I know - not a real word) I think I'll need another day of rest and relaxation. Hopefully I can get some writing done. That would feel good and productive.
I also want to thank my Twitter friends. I've been having some lovely chats and they have made me feel so good. I was able to whine a little. They gave me a dose of friendship and that felt good.
So Mental Girls says - take it easy out there. Take your vitamins, wash your hands, and drink lots of water. Stay healthy!
