And I thought snow was required to slow me down.
I’m sick. Have been for a week now and finally getting over it. I thought it was just a head cold when it started. But by the fourth or fifth day I started running a fever and was achy all over. Then I knew this was more.
My diagnosis at the urgent care that night was URI… but now with three+ straight days running a fever around 102… it makes me wonder if it wasn’t the flu. (Don’t get up in arms – I don’t think it was the infamous swine flu.) Just the flu.
But it caused me to slow down, TO. A. HALT.
I didn’t work Friday and had to cancel ALL my weekend plans helping Kass’ troop and teaching a class at church. With the meds I was taking, and my achy energy lacking body, I didn’t feel like driving. So Friday morning, Mr. M came to take Kass to school. I was so grateful.
I slept a lot. Didn’t eat much and then slept some more.
I didn’t even feel like blogging… (I know, right!?)
So my me-month ended up including more of a me-getting-sick-month than I was hoping for, but it slowed me down. Sometimes we need to slow down. Just hope I have that over for a while…. the slowing down due to sickness part. I slowed. I halted. I even stopped.
Now I just need to get back to the land of the living.
Not much energy yet.
But today’s goal (written Sunday) is to stay up for more than four hours at a time and to eat more than I have the last three days (which wouldn’t take much to outdo).
Find yourself… keeping it real.
