I'm going to give up fighting this cold tomorrow.......
Wednesday, July 19, 2017
Tomorrow I'll have had this cold for a week. In the beginning I didn't think it was going to be a bad cold but after driving home from Washington it turned on me. Today I can barely walk 10' without coughing and that is just wrong.
So if I can't get in to see my doctor I'll go to the walk-in clinic tomorrow. I carried a couple of more things in from the car today and I managed to empty the dishwasher that the boys filled while I was gone. Sure can't figure out what they ate tho.
So tonight I just wanted something soothing on my throat for dinner so I opted for a big bowl of fruit and a tiny bit of ice cream. Yesterday I did buy strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. I threw them all into a big bowl and enjoyed them today. But I have plenty left for a couple of more days. I'm trying to be better about eating my fruits and veggies. This learning how to take care of self is so hard. Also turning off that little voice in the back of my head (that belonged to my mother) is not easy to turn off.
At least she's no longer trying to tuck in my shirts or straighten my glasses when I walk into rooms. It's sad she's gone to be with dad and my siblings but I'm thinking I might be able to not listen her to so much anymore.
