Cold and Rainy Day

The color of the sky as far as I can see is coal grey.
Lift my head from the pillow and then fall again.
With a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather.
A quiver in my lips as if I might cry.

 Well by the force of will my lungs are filled and so I breathe.
Lately it seems this big bed is where I never leave.
Shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather.
Quiver in my voice as I cry,

 “What a cold and rainy day. Where on earth is the sun hid away.”

I am totally sick AGAIN! Ugh!! What kind of luck is this. It started up Saturday and I’m just barely better today. I had to suffer through my bi-annual CPR class this morning (there was no getting out of it) and was put at the back table with my own cpr mannequin and doll so that no one would catch my cooties. Totally understandable, but quite lonely too.

I’ve done everything to help myself get better. Going to bed early, taking naps and sleeping until ten or eleven which is totally against all my fibers of being, but it had to be done. I’ve been drinking loads of tea, oj, soup and water. I’ve even been breathing in eucalyptus steam!!! My sweet husband graciously took care of the kids so that I could get better, but now he is getting sick and so are the kids.  My little I-guy is already in the full-blown fever and runny-nose miserableness.  So, don’t come anywhere near my home.  We are incubating viral muckiness! Sounds nice doesn’t it.

One thing that has definitely lifted my spirits has been all the wonderful comments left so far on my Valentine Love Fairy.  Thanks you guys.  It’s like getting lots of nice warm hugs (the safe germ free kind of course!) It’s the perfect kind of brightness in my grey day.

    Oh sweetheart, take it easy and rest, rest, rest. Yuck! My baby boy has had the same thing since last wed too…it is NOT fun.

    Ickies here, too – but luckily my hubby and munchkin have not gotten it as bad as I. I am hoping to feel up to a bit of sewing or other small crafting today as I recuperate – I think being idle is the most frustrating part of being sick!!!

    So pass the soup and feel better soon!

    I’m so sorry you have the ickies! Seems a number of people in blogland have it too. I’m still okay, but have quit licking my computer screen whenever tasty looking food is blogged about…just in case!

    Feel better soon!

    I too am infected with the ickies. Mocos, fever, cough, no appetite, etc….no fun:( Thanks for the dose of 10,000 Maniacs! It’s finally sunny here today after days of rain and snow. I hope you and yours get to feeling better soon! Sending you all big germ free hugs and kisses and love, Aunt Jenny

    Sorry to hear you are sick! I am well but stuck at home with a sick Jupiter–he seems to be on the mend but will be staying home from school tomorrow too.

    Get better soon.

    I’m so sorry! I feel for you, really. You’re doing everything right, so I hope it passes quickly, for everyone.

    (Oh, and how long has it been since I heard that song?! And I don’t think I ever knew all the words…)

  7. Robin says:

    Yuck! Hang in there. I’m sending you some virtual chicken soup to help you recouperate quickly!

    Colds are no fun. I live in Tucson too, hated the rainy day yesterday. Yes, I know we need it, but I had plans! Today is very nice though, cold, but nice. Get well soon!

  9. I hope you are feeling better!
