Today is a toss up....can't tell if it's better or worse...

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

This cold is just plain awful. Almost anything I tried to do today caused coughing, but my head is less stuffy than it has been. Also discovered I'm weak. Tried to do a couple of things that I just couldn't manage. Dang it's just dragging on and on. I'm going to wait until Mon. when my regular doc is back from vacation and if I'm still in this same boat I'm going to beg to get into see her asap.

I did manage to empty the dishwasher (a job I don't enjoy), did some laundry because a cat barfed on my quilt and I sewed. Of course I made a measuring mistake but it's going to just be a simple design choice. I'm not ripping it out. So then tomorrow I'll have 3 more rows of the kid's quilts done. Two more to go and I can put them together and send them off.

Swallowing makes my throat feel better so I ate 2 ice cream sandwiches today besides my meals. My plan is to not make any more dietary changes until I've licked the diet pop habit for a good 30 days. Just want to see if it makes as much difference in my life as I've heard it is supposed to.

Big thunder storm tonight and again in the morning. If that keeps up the dog will not be going for a hair cut tomorrow. I refuse to put a wet dog in my car. Also if anyone has seen the remote control for the living room TV please put it back. I've looked every where. Trying to move furniture to see if it's under something proved to be a great big challenge today. Hence feeling weak.

    I hate it when I've misplaced something like the remote! It's usually something I JUST had in my hand, and I wander around the house trying to retrace my steps to find it. Thank goodness I don't watch TV in the morning - before my coffee I'd be likely to find the darn thing in the refrigerator or something!

    How did we ever live without remotes! I think your dog probably hid it. Lol

    When I finally quit sugary drinks and diet drinks, I can't remember it making me feel any different. I may have lost a few lbs. but they found me again. The good thing it did for me is that I developed the habit of drinking water. I used to hate drinking water. Now that is all I drink after my 2 cups of coffee with 1% milk in the morning.

    Oh my goodness! I'm sorry to hear that you are still down with that cold. It's five days until you can see your doctor. Should you wait that long? Chicken soup? Orange juice? Lots of fluids! Rest!

    We have two remotes. One for my DH to sleep with in his hand and one for me to switch channels while he is sleeping! Sometimes he steals them both or we play that "find the remote" game!

    Those girls will love getting those quilts! emoticon

    Yes if you still feel punky next week for sure call to get in to see your doctor. Sounds like you had quite the day trying to do things and feeling weak. So someone is hiding your remote control, maybe the dog has it planted somewhere---but it is so maddening when the remote is misplaced. Hope you find the remote soon.
