Sick Days Again

I just wanted to check in here after a few days away. I've been sick as a dog lately and so has Brit Boy so we're being sick together. Awww how romantic...LOL. Seriously though we have been having flu-like symptoms, but it isn't the flu. We just feel really yucky though. We don't know who had it first, we just both started to feel lousy on Sunday and it has lasted a few days. Anyway, we're hunkering down and just taking our meds, drinking our green tea and watching daytime television together. So it's all good :-)

Also, to go along with us not feeling good, we have had two power cuts in the last two days. The electricity went out Tuesday morning and they got it fixed pretty quickly. And then yesterday afternoon the lights went out again. We called in again, but it was kind of a race against the clock for them to get it fixed. You see, we had our grocery delivery coming, so we weren’t wanting to have a bunch of thawed out frozen stuff on our hands or non-refrigerated refrigerated food. We didn’t panic or anything, but we joked about hearing a tick tock in our heads, as we wondered which would happen first…would we get electricity before our delivery got here or hours after our delivery :-) Since we were doing the sick thing, we just went upstairs and took a lie down on the bed. We opened the curtains and just watched the blue sky, which was the only thing we could see lying down like that. It was tranquil and lovely. We watched the birds flying by and a few jets and just chilled out. All was well. No worries.

In the end, the delivery came a bit before the electricity, so Brit Boy took our frozen stuff to his mother’s. He just came back from going to pick it up. So I guess that it’s back to getting better together :-)

I’m very grateful to all of you who come here to read my blog, so I just wanted you to know that I haven’t run off or anything. Not a chance…although I wish that I felt good enough to run or walk at a quick pace anywhere at this point without wanting to instantly lie down :-) I will be back and going strong again soon and to my fellow Entrecarders , I’ll be back to dropping soon too.

Take care and enjoy your day. Now it’s back to the couch or bed for me….wherever Brit Boy is is where I’ll be parked.

I am so sorry that you are both sick. I feel even worse, because I have been so busy that I haven't been able to stop by and wish you well. Take care of yourselves and get well soon.

Hope that you both get better soon. Power cuts are no fun either but it's great that you are keeping your sense of humour!

Best wishes,

Roz
