I guess this just proves what lots of people have told me

You Are Cookie Monster

Misunderstood as a primal monster, you're a true hedonist with a huge sweet tooth.

You are usually feeling: Hungry. Cookies are preferred, but you'll eat anything if cookies aren't around.

You are famous for: Your slightly crazy eyes and usual way of speaking

How you life your life: In the moment. "Me want COOKIE!"

I have had several people describe me as the Cookie Monster over the course of my life, I guess they were all right - "who'd a thunk it??"

I am finally beginning to feel like myself again. Been away for a few days. Some sort of 'buglet' crept up and jumped me from behind. There I was enjoying myself on Saturday - outside in the sunshine, working in the yard, transplanting flowers and trees and then - ALL OF A SUDDEN - BAM!!!! I am laying on the couch feeling like I have been run over by a truck and 3hrs later I have a fever of 101.2 (which for those of us who usually run 97.6 is close to death). So being the naturalist that I am I try to burn those little buglets out for my system for a bit and just let the fever do it's thing. Only trouble was, I was so hot that I could sleep, sit still, or do much of anything with out everything (including my hair) hurting. I should remind you all that this was a Boys weekend - and the boys do not like it when I am sick - life just isn't as fun when Cheryl's not either around, or feeling well (it is so good to be loved).
So anyway, by about midnight I decided to go for the Tylenol. Then spent that whole night not sleeping, of course neither did my DH. Sunday comes and goes - I call out sick to both my jobs - very unusual for me, especially these days ($). Lots of Echinaccea, Hyland's Homeopathic Sinus and Insomnia formulas and then a little bit more sleep. 2hrs at a clip was better than none. Still could not get the temp below 100.0 . Monday comes and I call of sick again to my job at the store and the sniffles, sneezes and coughs start. DH comes home from work and promptly goes to the Vitamine Shop for more Echinaccea, (between the 2 of us - me trying to cure and him trying to keep from getting what I have) we ran out AND some Hyland's Flu formula. Let me tell you with in 1hr of my first does life was already beginning to improve.

So here I am today at 98.8 (still up for me, but much much more liveable), and with a bit of cabin fever so I think I shall go do a few errands just to ge out of the house for a bit. Good thing the weather has been gorgeous the last few days and I could have the house open. It doesn't feel like such an icky place when the house is open while someone in the house is sick. I guess if I have my druthers I will choose getting sick at this time of the year instead of during a time when the house is all closed up for either heating or air conditioning purposes.

Yes Viv, I did get your email with my "meme" in it, and now that I can actually think clearly I think I shall work on that after I go outside for a bit.

Stay well everyone, and if you must get sick - open the windows and let the fresh air blow through.

I am so sorry to hear you have been so sick. Sounds terrible! I ca not make it tonight, but I will definitely try for May 12. It sounds like fun! I see the cardio man tomorrow so maybe I'll have better news.
Knit on!
