Rising of the Dreaded Germy Monster

Blergh. I have been sick for about 3 days now, although I AM getting better each day. I am still sleeping 10 to 12 hours a night (My normal cycle is 6-7 hours) and still feeling tired enough to hit the hay at 9 p.m... after getting up at noon. I figure if my body wants sleep, sleep it shall get!
 During my limited awake time I have been making progress on the modular triangle shawl and working on ebay stuff, as well as helping Oscar with mutual decisions on what to keep (very little) and what to shuffle off to ebay/friends/charity/trash (everything else).
I like this kind of thing, and Oscar has really developed some great skills at the task.
Since a visit home when I spent too much time on my feet, my "foot time" and "sitting upright time" has been cut back even further, but we have adapted.
I hope to have this latest bug kicked in another few days, and be back at full speed again.

Drat. I got something Sunday, too. I was achy and miserable like I'd eaten something with tons of corn or preservatives in it, and all the associated gut problems which come along for that ride.

But I still felt crummy most of Monday, and not yet right at 7am today. I'm also sleeping like crazy. Didn't get out of bed for about 2 days and today took a 4 hour nap.

Feeling like I could eat again was a big step. Yesterday, only Tapioca Pudding and late in the day chicken broth and rice noodles. Today more tapioca, some rice and again some chicken soup but this time adding a few green peas (living wild). My temp is acting like it wants to be normal and I assume I'll be back to life tomorrow.

I hope you get better sooner than I did. Yes, give in. If the body wants to sleep... you must let it sleep. Hugs!
