I have the Plague. At least it feels like the plague.

At least now I'm mobile, fever free and I can swallow and actually digest liquids. Yuck. It just whammed me Sunday morning. I like colds where I have a nice hallucinogenic fever, everything is a little hazy and sweet, possibly a bit of a frog in my throat and I can lay in bed and read. I do not like illnesses (like the Plague that I have) where my fever is so high that I'm shaking with cold and have to take a bath because my unshaved legs are driving me crazy that then mutates into some hideous variant where I can't swallow, keep anything down, sleep, rest, read or watch TV because my head is pounding like a jack hammer.

Yeah, yeah, that's how I spent my Valentine's Day. It's not the worst one either.

How are the Olympics Going? I see some progress and some pacing problems, and frankly some knitting that makes me green with envy but..............it's still anyone's Gold right now!

Oh Carrie, I'm so sorry to hear that you've been sick! I swear, illness is passing through the blogosphere.

Glad you're feeling better!

If you need a laugh, my blog entry of today will do it. All I can say is... he's a weird cat. That's it.

Oh yuck, so sorry to hear you've been so sick, but glad that your feeling better.

It's this awful time of year, I swear.

Now don't overdo it, still rest so you continue to get better.

Eek! Glad you're feeling better.

And why is it that we can feel each individual leg hair when we're sick? I thought it was just me....

I wondered where you went. I am glad you're feeling better :) Shall I go sit in the Powell's health and wellness section and think of you? ;)***CV
