Under the Weather

And the weather isn't good!

Yesterday I went out once -- to the gym -- and stayed in the rest of the day. I didn't even feel good enough to shower. I just went to the gym this morning, and I think I feel better, though tired. I WILL shower today! As for what my ailment is, I think I am coming down with a cold. Probably a doozy.

Today was free bagel day at Planet Fitness, so at least I got a free breakfast. Lunch today will be leftover lasagna casserole (which I made yesterday) and dinner will be blueberry pancakes and sausage. I will also have fruits/veggies with each meal but haven't decided what yet.

I watched Victorian Slum House on yesterday. Wow, it really touched me. So many people lived such hard lives, barely scraping by. My financial problems, such as they are, seem paltry. Really reminded me that I have a good life.

My variables spending is at 62% with two weeks and a day to go. But before pay day comes, I will be leaving for a weeklong trip in Florida with my son's family, so the budget will be skewed by that. Between now and then I will only buy necessities. It shouldn't be too hard. I am well-stocked. It will be interesting to see what I can do without. For instance, I am down to one slice of bread. I don't plan to buy bread, because I have corn muffin mix and crescent rolls, as well as hamburger buns, and those should take care of any carb cravings. I am very low on dishwasher detergent, but I can wash dishes by hand. My creamer will run out soon, but I can use almond milk, or drink my coffee black. What will turn out to be a true necessity? We'll see.

Going to my grandson's orchestra concert tonight. Since I missed the band concert, this is a must-do. Hope I am a little more perky by then.

    The cold I have had is definitely a doozy. I'm on day seven and finally feeling the best I have since last Tuesday. But it's still making me get hot and cold at times. Sleep all you can, it helps! But don't spread anything you might have to others but thinking you are expected somewhere.

    There was an evil virus going around here in March. Even after the sick feeling part was gone people were dragging. As CCF says rest as much as you can.

    I hope you feel better soon. I am just finally shaking off the last of the cold that threw me down. I hope you have a much milder one!

    Most of my office just got over a nasty virus that left people with a nagging cough for 3 weeks! I was one of the first to have it. Miserable stuff. Get plenty of rest and fluids!
