For the second time in April, it’s raining. Our first rain was Friday. Now today. The showers were bookends for the weekend. I had a rough week last week. I ended up feeling under the weather (like what I did there?). In fact, I stayed home for two days; Wednesday and Thursday. I still wasn’t feeling the best on Friday, but I didn’t want to use up all my Personal Time. I’m not yet up to stuff. As usual, I have acquired a sinus infection. I was warned by my Ears, Nose, & Throat specialist to expect a sinus infection after I catch any other illness. This past week it started out as a stomach bug but morphed into a mild respiratory disease. But the aches and pains were more than moderate. Now, of course, the post nasal drip and headache of the sinus infection.
It sucks getting old. As we get older, we are less prone to vomiting when we get the stomach bug. I did vomit a little on Wednesday morning. I spent the rest of the two days exhausted, sleeping most of the time. In my youth (though I thought of it as adulthood back then) I would vomit gallons of fluids up, once threatening to cause the toilet to self-flush. So, that’s one thing I don’t miss.
