Saturday, March 1

This is me. Sick in bed. The only difference is that I don't have Mom to take care of me. Of course I'm way too old for that and Mom has herself to look after. But sometimes a mother's touch can make us feel so much better.

I started feeling poorly on Wed. Nothing serious, but just not up to par. Friday I felt a little worse. I watched Griffyn for Melissa to go to her aunt's funeral. When I came home I laid down and slept for two hours. I didn't figure I would go to sleep, but was tired and in bed by 11 PM. I was awake on and off all night because of coughing and shivering. Nasty bug.

Today I was cold all day and was so stuffed up I couldn't breathe. I sent hubby to the health food store to buy some Breathe Easy Tea and made myself a cup. That cleared up my stuffiness, but was still cold and shivering and no energy. Hubby made me a bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup and that was delicious. Yes, hubby can cook if he has to and sometimes gives me a break.

After I ate the soup, I crawled back in bed and covered up with lots of blankets and the comforter. I still shivered. I stayed there until about 5PM and then got up. It is about 7:30 now and I will soon be heading off to bed. Thank goodness for the relief that the Breathe Easy Tea gave me.

I just wanted to post a blurb to let all my blogging buddies and readers know what's going on with me. I know that some of you have wondered. Yes, I'm still in the land of the living, but wish I could get warm.

Whatever you do, don't catch this bug. It's nasty with a capital N. ~Blessings, Mary~


  1. Good to hear from you. I too have been a little under the weather with my asthma and spent most of the day in bed or not but in pjs.
    Hope you're better soon.

  5. Good Evening Mary,
    I'm sorry you are sick, but I will be praying that you will get better. I'm glad you hubby made you some homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. To me, that's the best medicine there is. Just take care of yourself and stay in bed as long as you need to. Our girls still have their lingering cough, but it's getting better. Take care my friend and get the rest you need. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  6. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for this breath easy tea...I hate to get stopped up worse than anything.

    My own Mama has been sick with this same thing...horrible stuff!

    Hope you are better real soon!!

  7. Oh Mary, I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. I had that back in December and it was awful! It took me forever to feel better afterwards.

  10. I'm sorry you're not feeling well but am happy you're taking care of yourself by drinking tea and getting necessary rest. This year has had a long an awful cold and flu season! I find Vitamin C, lots of water and rest, and Zicam (if it's a cold) work wonders. I hope you're feeling better soon.
