I Am Not Well

Actually, I am feeling a little better.

This morning, when my alarm went off, my body decided that it would stay asleep. I could barely move, so with great effort I reached over to the alarm and reset it to give me another half hour.

Alarm, again, goes off. My mind still foggy, body still fatigued, I made my way downstairs and ended up drinking half a pot of coffee. I never was a coffee drinker until recently. I think maybe I am just being lazy. The coffee is usually already prepared by Mr. Sister and I can grab my quick fix of caffeine without having to put the tea kettle on.

Unfortunately, the coffee did not help. Once back from carpool duties, I was so exhausted that I was shaking and nauseated. I gave the Munch some assignments and went back to bed. I slept for an additional 3 1/2 hours!

So here I am...playing catch up with my day! I don't think I'll succeed and you know what? That's okay. Dinner will be "fend for yourself" night and now that the laundry is folded and put away, I don't have that albatross around my neck.

With that said, another nap may just be in order.  Have a terrific Tuesday, everyone!

That doesn't sound like fun. An extra 3.5 hours of sleep and you still feel yucky? Yikes. I'm hoping you will be able to recover soon. Being sick is such a drag.

I'm so sorry that you are feeling poorly. I hope it is just that you need to catch up with some rest, and you are not falling ill.

Jenny said...

Oh Polly. I hope you feel better soon. Nothing like having those things drag on.

Wish I was closer. I would bring you some soup!

And a cracker.

And a little flower from my garden.

I hope you feel better! Wow, the last time I was that tired I was....well, you probably don't want to know...but it starts with a P and lasts 9 months, LOL.

Just so you know, I have a very difficult time loading your page at work, so sometimes I can read, but not comment! It's very annoying and happens with yours and a couple other blogs I follow...but I try to get back in the evening to comment!

Oh honey, take care of yourself. I have had similar days, I know how it makes me feel like I wasted a day, but when the body needs rest, we gotta give it or it takes it later.
