sick etc...

I woke up at 7:30 this morning feeling soooo much better. I was still in the same clothes I wore to bed Tuesday night and thought that I'd do a few household chores before hopping in the shower. I emptied the nasty ass litter boxes, fought with the Roomba, sorted through the laundry and started one of four loads, then hand washed a few delicates. While wringing out the delicates I felt dizzy and almost faint-like. So now here I am back in bed watching I Love Lucy. Both animals are here with me again, Wrigs in the bed and Chum's on the ottoman. They're both watching me as I type on my lap top and I don't think they understand this sick business. They have a look of concerned confusion on their little mugs. I just love watching them and I'm always wondering what's going on in their little minds. Chum looks at me and then Wrigley, then Wrigley looks at Chum and when eye contact is made Chum raises his lip a little and lets out a faint meow. Then Wrigs looks away and side glances at Chum then Chum looks back at me. I could lie here and watch this whole exchange for hours at a time. And since I'm feeling crappy again, that may be all I do today.

Though I really need to read that Oprah book. Mindy posted a clip about Awakening Your Purpose on her blog.

Girl, you probably haven't EATEN since Tuesday, either, which would account for the dizzy, faint-like feeling. Like you said last time, wouldn't it be great if Wrigs and Chum could work the microwave and bring you some tea or soup? Feel better my friend!

I think that was definitely the problem. I went downstairs and made some oatmeal and within 3 bites I felt sooo much better. The last 2 days all I've had was Theraflu and soup so I'm sure I needed something else in my system in order to stand upright and move around! I'm hoping it was just a 48 hour thing and won't linger or turn into a mucus fest for weeks on end.
