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.
