I've been really sick since the first of the year....my first real day out was for Jury Duty this past week and then I was so exhausted I came home and went to bed. My honey had whatever I had in a lighter form...he got a flu shot, I didn't (BAD me!)....He was sick 4 days....I'm entering my 4th week, although except for tiredness and a lack of being able to talk I don't feel sick anymore. I actually cleaned house on Saturday, got out and did all my grocery shopping (which hadn't been touched since last year), got some other minor things done too. Today I sat and vegged....I was exhausted again.
Gads the older I get it seems the flu hits me harder. On top of it when the spouse gets sick neither one feels up to cooking or running out for food so you just don't eat....this doesn't help the condition. I did get the doctor to order me some anti-biotics which did absolutely no good but empty my wallet of a few $$$$. He then determined I have walking pneumonia...and ordered more rest, and eating correctly.....yeah right, here we go again on the food problem and being sick. Next year in December I'm going to make up some dinners ahead and freeze them in meal size portions....grab and nuke. We've gotten sick in January both last year and this year.
A phone call from a loved one is a real picker-upper when sick. Both #2 son and #1 daughter called us several times a week to see how we were doing. They are 300 miles away....but a voice cheers people up tremendously.
Life goes on...we're both starting to get back to normal (whatever that is)...real estate is calling for me, hubby's commitments are calling and we're feeling good enough to at least get our feet wet! Promising each other not to overdo it! This week I have a professional standards class at the GLVAR that I must attend. for the time bing I'm putting listers/buyers on an e-mail drip system (temporary patch)
