I have gotten bitten by the bug, and if you follow my blog at all you know how much I hate bugs! I actually feel, like this guy looks above! It started last Thursday with a sleepless night and a scratchy throat. My son was arriving from Bangor Friday afternoon and I was feeling like a Mack Truck just hit me. I had bouts of energy in between which was really weird.
By Saturday night, it was kicking in pretty good. My son Kyle and husband Bob stayed up late and watched one of those shoot-em-up movies, guys like so much, and I went to bed early. The sounds of the guns and screaming from the movie didn’t even keep my eyes open. The great thing about this flu is I am getting better sleep than I have in years! The downside of that is, I’m still exhausted after 10 hours of sleep! Any single ache on my body that I would feel once in a blue moon is magnified 100 times along with the usual aches and pains of getting older! My sinuses are stuffed, my head aches, my body feels like it has been stomped on and I am in a heavy fog. The dry cough and the runny nose are just a bonus! My son left last night for another visit in Yarmouth and then he will be living with his big sister Carissa in Portland, until he finds employment and an apartment. His girlfriend Sarah, stayed back in Bangor. She will come down here after Kyle has everything in place. Meanwhile kid brother is living with big sister and friend Brooke…..say a prayer! So…I just wanted to check in even though I am in a state of slow motion and am not sure if any of this makes sense? Oh…forgot to say…I gave it to my husband. I heard the familiar cough about 5 o’clock this morning. Sorry honey! It sucks! See you all soon when I am better. Is it me or is that picture blurry? Back to my Kleenex box and some good tea.
