Sick house

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Hubs and I have both managed to come down sick. This is unusual; we generally are only sick one at a time, and don't tend to "cross-pollinate" our illnesses.

But hey, it's almost Valentines Day, and isn't this a time for loving couples to share with each other?

Last night I get into bed about an hour before he did, but I couldn't quite get comfy. I was either too hot or to cold, throwing covers on and off in an attempt to get just the right balance. Finally, I had achieved it: the sheet was in just the right place, the blankets settled around me perfectly. I began to drift off.

At which point Hubs came to bed, pulling up and moving the covers to get comfy himself. It was frustrating, but I had to laugh. The secret of our comic success is, of course, timing.

    We are very rarely sick at the same time, too. Hope you're better soon!

    My dh is so cute. He carefully tucks me in and makes sure I'm covered up and then rolls over and takes the covers with him. emoticon
Oh, well, it's the thought that counts. emoticon

    My husband and I use separate bedding (in the same bed of course!) for this exact reason!

Getting sick?

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

In the last few years, it seems like my winters have been spent swinging from one cold to the next. This year has been much better; a couple times I thought I was getting sick, but managed to stave it off.

Today, though, I think this cold has really caught me. It may be I felt that need for a rest day because I was coming down with something. I am debating whether to take another rest day or try for a light workout.

    Give your self a pampering rest day. Hot drinks like tea with honey, sugar free hot chocolate and some chicken broth (low sodium of course!). I just got over a bad cold and did not exercise or even go to work for 4 days. Looking back I think I should have been at least going outside for a 10 minute walk each day because I was so weak from doing nothing when I got back to work. So get some fresh air while you have your rest day too. I hope you feel better soon!

A sign of the new me?

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

After last night's drool-worthy watching of Triple-D, I went to bed and dreamt about eating...


A long, elaborate dream about having a large dinner party with friends, and the hosts insisting it was time for dessert, and me just asking, please couldn't I just eat more of the strawberries? I didn't want cake or pie or brownies, I just wanted strawberries.

In other news, I'm attempting to make myself take a rest day. But if the sun gets all shiny, I might have to go ride my bike for just a little while....

    Isn't it interesting how our food choices do change. I get cravings for fruit now when before I could go forever without eating any.

Enjoy your day!

    At least go for a walk. Let the endorphins be your sunshine!

    It's cloudy and cold, so riding is not a temptation after all.

    Just make it a slow, leisurely bike ride.

Self torture

Monday, February 06, 2012

You know, when you're up late and kind of hungry, watching "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives"? It's kind of...pornography.

(This is me laughing at myself -- and heading for bed instead of for the kitchen!)

    LOL! My DH and sons love to watching eating shows. Mostly gorging shows! I can't sit and watch anymore! I definitely think those would now produce nightmares!

Sleep well, hopefully without visions of sugar plum fairies, or whatever the drive-thru equivalent might be, dancing in your head.

Resolution of frustration with friend

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Thanks to everyone who commented on my post yesterday. Your comments really helped me to decide how to handle the situation.

I should clarify that the day's plans were to take the kids to the home show with us and then they went home to a sitter while we two couples went out to a nice dinner. Hubby and I are close with their children and do want to spend time with the kids--just not in the way that it turned out!

That being said, I did talk to her about her tendency to get on a one-track, "we're here for this thing I want to do" mentality and to forget about what other people might want to do, and she apologized for that. In the course of the conversation we established that it's not my job to take over babysitting at an event like this, and then we had a very nice dinner and evening out, so there were no hard feelings and things are good between us.

Thanks again for all your input!
