Plans Gang Agley

I had plans for the weekend but lethargy ruled.  I can't seem to come all the way back from the virus or flu or mega cold or whatever laid me low for the last two weeks of December.  No sooner do I start feeling better than I am whacked with a mini-relapse: headaches, sinus infections and general aches and pains.  If this is a consequence of being 60-something, I am not liking it.  Extra vitamins, extra fluids, naps when possible comprise my treatment strategy.  I can't seem to tolerate any leisure activity beyond reading: DVDs annoy me, stitching is beyond my level of concentration, even listening to the radio is an irritation.  My temperament is edging toward toxic.  I have issued preemptive apologies to my husband and am focusing what energies I have left on behaving in a civil fashion at work.

As my 7th and 8th graders would say:  I am sooo done with being sick or even semi-sick.

I've been ill this week too, the first time in nearly 2 years. It's sooooo over-rated! I don't know why anyone would want to do it!
I don't think I'll bother again for another 2 years. The worst thing was it came on after 2 days at work and has gone before my next work day so I don't even get a sickie!

Get well soon xx
