But Of Course!

Naturally,because I was feeling great,upbeat and relaxed,the best I have for quite a while,Mother Nature decided to throw a wrench into it and I have come down with what seems to to be a twice a year event- I get some strange head cold/allergy/whatever it is. Looking back,it started Tuesday evening. I made the Beekman Brothers fabulous Zucchini,Tomato,and Pepper Au Gratin and Rick BBQ'd pork chops. ( It was DELICIOUS!!!) After I made it,I felt real tired all of a sudden and had lay down for a while.I felt achy all over. I even ate in the bedroom and was asleep by 9:00 PM (which is early- I usually fall asleep around 10:00 or so). Yesterday I got up,and my sinuses hurt,my head felt woozy,and I was exhausted. I did get on the computer because I had to update some information for our Boy Scout Troop on the troop website,and I did drink some coffee and eat a muffin,but food didn't help. I wound up going back to bed. I watched "The Young Victoria" on my Kindle,which has sparked an interest with Queen Victoria and her love, Prince Albert.( I had to order the movie as well as "Victoria and Albert" from Amazon.) I slept most of the day.

Today,though I have pressure in my sinuses,they do feel better than yesterday. My head is still quite off,though. It's an odd feeling-like being dizzy but your not.It's a real spacy feeling,like  your head is very light. I feel real tired,but today I am going to at least shower. I plan on sitting out on the deck and enjoying the beautiful day,but at some point I know I am going to have to take a nap. I feel completely wiped out, like I haven't slept in days.

I do take allergy medicine,but apparently,I need to speak to my Dr because it' s not working on whatever it is that causes this. It happens in the fall,and again in the winter. In keeping with my goal of decluttering my body,I started taking a multi vitamin last week,and I actually can hold them down now (when I tried,I got sick last time). I was feeling great! Now this.

But of course.


  1. I do hope you feel better soon Donna. Enjoy your weekend and get plenty of rest and relaxation. These fall allergies are really tough now that we have had a bit of rain after such a dry spell. Hugs :)

  2. Thank you! We are parking cars at the Rochester Fair this weekend as a fundraiser for our Boy Scout Troop-I hope I will be able to do it,Rick is depending on me. Today I still feel like poo :(
