The weekend, very briefly

Okay, so it turns out that my low carb intake experiment may not have been entirely responsible for how run down I was feeling last week.

sick weekend
{sick weekend}

I have a wicked cold. So basically my Saturday looked like this, but with the pile of tissues mounting by the hour and with the added soundtrack of sneezing and whining - I rarely get sick and when I do I get vocally bitter about how it slows me down.

Sadly (and disrespectfully, in my opinion), the rest of the world doesn't stop when I feel out of sorts, so in addition to congestion, I'm dealing with a combination of various family crises and minor problems and a crazy work week, and I'm tapped out. Needless to say, cooking and crafting and general good life type things are in short supply at the moment. There are two weeks worth of CSA produce backed up in my fridge. I ate an apple for dinner because heating up a frozen veggie burger sounded way too complicated.

I'm taking at least a couple days (possibly a week) off  here to deal with real life. And then I'll be back, amped up for fall and hopefully sniffle free.

  3. You sound like I felt week before last. Take care of yourself - I've finally realized that it's necessary to stop, even when the world doesn't, and focus on me first. Hope you feel better soon!

  7. I hope you get better soon! I am whiny too when I'm sick. And now that I am out of home and can't whine at my mum Corey bears the brunt of all of it. He is really good but. He always makes me vegemite on toast and cups of tea.

  14. Face itching, eyes hurting and head feels like it's stuffed with cotton. I'm right there with ya.

    Haven't had a cold in like three years, so this sucks. I'm oddly glad though, to see someone else reacting pretty much like myself when I'm sick.

    Hope you'll be getting better soon!

  21. Aww, Rachel, I hope you're feeling better! Crises are bad enough on their own, but crises while sick are just the worst. I hope this week is a marked improvement from last week.
