Something was off and I thought it was just my attitude. I wasn't hungry and couldn't decide on something to eat. Nothing sounded good and the nibbles I had of a few things didn't taste well. So I went to the cupboard and found my cup of noodles, which came with a flashback. I remembered how those little cups of noodles have always helped me, most recently when I couldn't eat anything heavy - or I was afraid that I was going to see what I ate again in an unfriendly way. Nevertheless, I was happy and they helped me.(Just check out my crazy last post. It was actually a cover for a giveaway - but no one jumped at the bit. Aren't you sad you never commented now?)

Then, Saturday I was more tired than usual despite having the best night's sleep in a long time. Yesterday my throat was really scratchy and yucky. I almost used it as a reason not to go to church. I pushed myself through though and survived. Later in the evening, my sinuses felt different and I had that dripping feeling. In the middle of the night I was gasping for something to drink because my mouth was so dry. Yes, I was mouth breathing out of necessity because my nose was so stuffy and I had shoved Kleenexes into my nostrils because they were still dripping and I just wanted to get some sleep. (Ok, it was toilet paper. I used up all the Kleenexes last week using them as toilet paper. When will I be normal again?) Anyway, when it was almost morning I finally woke up enough to realize I had to do something. I got out the nasal spray. It helped me sleep the rest of the night.

I had a lot of gumption to get up and complete some things that I wanted to do today. Monica has school and Ken is working. The last couple of days I have been alone like that have been a huge struggle for me and I wanted to conquer that emotional struggle today. I got my stuff out, had a great photo shoot, (I hope) and then my body said, "I'm done!" I was going to take a nap. But, I can't sleep. When I lay down, I can't breathe. I can't even smell the Vapor Plug that is in the outlet right next to me. I am still not really hungry but know that if I don't have something to eat that I will be even worse. So, when I go get Monica from school I am going to get me some more of that fabulous noodle soup for dinner.

I hope I have the energy to get up, edit, and post those photos this evening and am able to send out the newsletters that my customers are dying to get that they don't know about yet. You know, because it's almost Easter - and those little girls need stuff for their dolls, right?

I do wish I had commented besides in fb chat. I thought your last post was fun and even told Bob about it ;). I hope this cold moves as fast as it did for our family. D and I started it last Wednesday and all I have left is a stuffy nose and she just coughs. C got very little of it and Bob should be better by tomorrow.

Awe that's a bummer that you are feeling sick! Hope you get better soon! I was feeling horrible a few weeks ago and my neti pot helped me a ton!

I read your noodle post, but didn't comment for reasons of not wanting to be a raincloud on your love for noodles. I found out a couple of years ago that I am sensitive to wheat, and that it and some other foods have been the cause of many strange things going on in my body for years. So, you love your noodles, I avoid them like the plague because they make me tired and not able to concentrate.
On a more positive note, when we were younger, my sister and I wrote an ode to milk. I think she still has it somewhere. (Milk also turned out to be something I'm sensitive to. Those tests explained a lot....)
