From 6 pm on July 4th until 4 pm on July 5th, I slept about 18 hours. I feel lousy and unwillingly succumb to sleep. Once in a while I get up and drink water, open the computer, maybe comment on a blog. Then, I pass out again. This has become my new normal when ill instead of getting up and muddling around all day.
I actually slept too much on Sunday and Monday, too, so this is not so sudden as it seems.
This day had a great plan for getting things done: laundry, dishes, PO visit, grocery store, farmer's market. None of it was done. I fed Dominique and got one stupid letter from the mailbox. NOOOO! I do not want to apply for a pre-approved credit card.
Even though I have an elevated temperature, I think I can beat this. That is what I thought before the local senior spelling bee and spelled with a fever. Saturday is the national bee, but I hope not to make that trip with a fever and then have to spell the next day.
A friend who likes to take a nip and wears a gun is going to stay here the two days I am gone. He won't answer the door, but he sees all that goes on outdoors. I feel secure no one will bother my place at all.
In one minute it will be Wednesday....sigh. Maybe it won't be a lost Wednesday. I am feeling better, so maybe tomorrow will be more productive. I need to deal with the produce I got at the market on Saturday! This lost day will be difficult to overcome.
Right now, I will continue my efforts to get the dishwasher working normally.
Do you ever lose a day due to illness? Maybe you had another emergency. Does it seem like you will never get back on track? It does with me, maybe because I am still suffering from this sinus infection.
