~ I KNOW..I KNOW...~

My blog is suffering and I know it and I am SO sorry. I am trying so hard to visit and do some posting..but it is just so difficult for me. I will keep trying though. Never in my life have I found it so hard to get past an illness.
I feel (as Pat used to say) like a gold bricker! :)

I feel like ranting and raving but that would just be so silly and it wouldn't help me get well any faster. I am progressing..but I am having too many moments of less than happy thoughts...and that just isn't like me. Now I think I have some sort of flu. My tum hurts something terrible. It's as though I consumed poison or something. Could that be the flu? I hope so! The stomach flu??

I was going to take a picture of the Halloween containers...and the stack of things to be put away out on the patio...but decided not to. I may be moving slow..but it will get done. :) At least it is out of the house... Oops! I see I forgot something hanging in the front window...shoot!

The children came by this weekend and are going to paint the inside of the house. I am delighted. I will even get my beam across the family room dividing it which I have wanted for a long time. At this time there are THREE different light fixtures. LOL Ah well. The beam will go where the old light fixture is now. Bless their hearts!
I want that "cottage cheese" removed...but...I am too weak to do sweet husband says it "doesn't bother" him... :) I simply cannot ask the children to do perhaps when I am well. We'll see. Then we can get our carpet and hardwood floors! Yippee!
Ok...I will take pictures tomorrow...if I can...and post them. You will see how horrible it is. The ceiling, I mean!
Love and hugs...(if I haven't visited you yet...I WILL be there soon!)

p.s. Another CT scan at 7:15 this Friday morning. Wish me luck. As you can see by the time...I am up. I gave up and took a couple of pain pills. It's so quiet, not a sound. Perhaps when the pills work I can read a bit. I can't even hear the train in the quiet..

Hang in there. You will get better. Try not to make your "to-do" list too long or expect too much of yourself. Rest!

You are so blessed to have loving children to help you with your home. It is going to look beautiful all freshly painted.

With all the flu going around...that is probably what is bothering you. If you still feel badly tomorroe, call your doctor. You can't take chances. And get some rest. Your blog will wait!

Mona, sorry to hear your stomach is upset, hope it isn't the flu. Do rest as much as you can, that is the best thing when you aren't feeling up to par. I am happy to hear that your children are checking in on you often. Get well, my friend.

Dawn said...

You must be doing some better if you're worrying about the ceiling texture!LOL! It can wait, and so can we. Take care of your self.

I'm usually finding holiday decorations hanging for months. If you only missed one you're doing better than me!

Sometimes our bodies respond to what is going on in our minds. Is there something worrying you Mona? If so, then that is what is causing your malaise. Something is also blocking your recovery. Try and cure that first and then the body will respond favourable. Take care,
Blessings, Star

Hope you feel better every day! It must be hard for an active woman like you to be forced to slow down and heal. Sending you big hugs.

Balisha said...

Hi Mona,
Maybe you need to get out and away from everything. Do something different today.Only what you can handle though..things may seem brighter. Sometimes we can get depressed with the same old routine.Just a simple drive in the country and out to lunch can do wonders.
Love you, Balisha

Pat said...

Thank you for stopping by my place even though you aren't feeling well. I am sending you positive, healing energy. Take some time and just rest, go out to lunch and try to relax.

Nezzy said...

Hey sweet Mona, I am concerned and feel your Doc needs to know what is happening with your health even if it is just the flu. Please give him a call. Take care, you have raised your children well. You are blessed to have them.

Take care and my thoughts and prayers are with ya all the way!!! God bless......

Hey Mona dear! Wondering how you are today. My doctor has cut me back to a 4 day work week due to stress at work. Ugh! I have been doing a lot of resting but I'm still tired.

It's very cold here. We have had the heat running all day for the first time this year.

Get well soon. Love ya!
