DUH!!! You get sick. Well mama warned me I was doing to much. Mama said slow down or your going to get sick. Mama said ….. Heck I’m 50 years old and my mama said. Should of listened to her but there is always so much that has to be done that I just kept going and now, well I’m sick. Right now just a horrible cold and I don’t plan on it getting any worse than that. I have taken the past 3 evenings off to do nothing but sit under a blanket and drink my fluids. I did go to work and than disinfected the bus each night. I did go to the gym once in those three days and took it a bit easier on the bike (which I am now up to 60 miles with only 72 left to go next week). I did have daycare with Joss but it was to give her mama a rest because her mama has MS and needs a break but in turn found out Joss has the flu so on top of my cold I’m hoping I don’t get the flu. It’s winter time and I drive a germ wagon (that’s what grandma calls my bus) and I have little ones between so it’s bound to happen. It just means this weekend I’m going to sleep in a bit more and take a nap and do as little as I possible can or have too.
I have something to share with you, MONSTER BOBBY!!! He’s been here before but he’s bored and hates the winter so only spends a tiny bit of time outside otherwise he’s inside terrorizing the dogs or today me.
I was putting the dish towels away and he climbed up into the cupboard and each time I went near he’d try and snag me and eat me. Then…..
I wanted to clip coupons since shopping day is tomorrow and he at the newspaper. I did get the coupons I need from it but some of them are a tad bit shredded.
While Bobby is in here driving me nuts I have this outside the window eating spaghetti noodles I through out for them. All that separates me from the squirrels is a pane of glass. This little red squirrel didn’t care I was standing right there taking his picture or watching him.
The scale said I lost nothing again this week. That’s two weeks in a row and I’m keeping my calories down, there isn’t any added sugar anywhere’s. I hope it means I’m building back my muscles and they are taking place of the fat. I have noticed my pants are getting back to that better feeling and I have notice, up until my cold kicked in, I have more energy so I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing and hope that the scale catches up soon. It’s disheartening but I know I’m doing what’s right. I’ve been here, done that so I know that it will get better.
Mike is in Aspen this weekend. It’s so cool to say that. Anyways, his school took a bunch of kids for $50.00 for the weekend to the X-Games. I am hoping it will help Mike loosen up a bit and relax. He’s been so uptight about his new phase in welding. Welding is something Mike is really good at already but there’s always room for improvement and new techniques but right now he’s not into learning something new but he will get there. It’s hard having someone tell you to do something over and over again because it’s not the way they wanted it but it passes the x-ray machine. They x-ray things to see how the weld is and Mike’s welds are awesome but just not done the way they want them so he’s gotta give a bit, bend a bit and relax and enjoy this phase. School is 3/4 of the way over and soon graduation and a new life. He’ll get it, he always does but of course in his own time.
Well I do have to vacuum, I need to walk over to the neighbors and check their cabin and of course there’s the chickens and fire that need tending. Then Jim will take me out for lunch and we’ll come home for a nap. So I really better get going. Take care my friends and I do hope you all are having an awesome weekend. Take care of yourselves, rest, relax and rejuvenate. It’s good for the body, it’s good for the soul. I’m learning.
