Funky Flu

Being sick with the flu is the pits!

The first week, I basically slept 20 hours a day.

The second week, I was awake more, but still spent all day in bed.

The third week, I still felt lousy. However, since I felt significantly better than the previous two weeks, I spent Sunday and Monday trying to "catch up. "

Big Mistake.

I CRASHED on Tuesday.

Wednesday, I spent all day in bed again.

I am going to wait until next week before I try anymore "catching up."

I have done practically nothing for three weeks.

No wonder I am in a funk!

Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.

With love and optimism,

Getting better, healing, isn't "nothing," though since you're usually like the Energizer Bunny, I can understand why it would feel that way. Are there some stray family photos you can organize into an album while you're in bed? Orphan socks to reunite? A pile of papers you can sift through? That's productive yet restful. Shabbat shalom!

This stuff is so difficult to shake, I imagine even harder when your body is fighting cancer. I hope you feel 100% better soon. Keep resting up! Maybe you can find some online games or puzzles to keep you "busy" :)

There is a big difference between Ricky carrying a balloon and someone else. My reply is here:

Maybe chasing that bird did you in! Sounds like pretty intense activity to me! Hope you feel better very soon!

Michele - LOL!!! Me, like the Engergizer Bunny??? You must be kidding.

Do you really match up socks while sick in bed? That sounds like torture to me!

I have the BIGGEST collection of mismatched socks in the world!! Every once in a while a friend comes over and we sit and sort socks while we shmooze...

Aliza --Thanks!! I was worried about posting too many heavy blog posts at once.

Cheryl -- my brain was too fried for puzzles... I have to be careful about on-line games; they can be addictive.

Hey little bro'! -- I LOVE the Big Bird quote!!!

Ricki's mom -- I'm getting there. I'm still pondering the balloon issue, but I think I understand where you are coming from.

Joani -- I am impressed that you remember me from then! That was my first birth -- 15+ years ago!!

I appreciate the extra prayers from your yoldot! What a z'chut!

SS -- Nah. I just looked really funny flapping my arms, then waving a broom over my head. I was glad no one was there to see it -- my kids would totally have made fun of me!
