It's official. I am sick. Dang it. It was bound to happen. Everyone around me has gotten. I had to stay home to today. Can't get L.L. sick. I ache all over. Even my hair hurts. Wish I could sleep. Coughing too much. I always get sicker at night. Add a headache to the mix and well I am miserable. Going to cruise blogs and try to get a game plan on food. I need to try to cook. I really don't like it. I am no good at it because I don't do. Picture dog chasing tail. So I am going to try and get a list together and then if I feel any better later I will sneak off to food shop. I hope I can kick this thing to the curb.

I walked yesterday. Not far, but it was nice to walk alone and listen to a podcast. To think. I guess I am going to try taking L.L. out for at least a mile walk until it gets too hot. Then make myself do another couple of miles. I will be happy with 3 miles a day. I guess really I could walk 2 miles in the morning. Very Very Early. It's just I know I am a morning person. If I don't get it out of the way it is just so hard to make myself do it. I am just going to set an intention and do my best. So walking is the top priority. So let it be written, so let it be done. Anyone know which movie that's from. Here's a clue. Parted the Red Sea. Random. I know.

I had a rotten weekend food wise. I hope this is all wedding jitters. Having my sister come to town. Stuff like that. Not feeling well. I haven't wanted to get a dress for this reason. I have decided it's really not my weight. It's the sweating. If you have read my blog for a while I have talked about this before. I sweat so much that it disrupts my life. I am always damp. Every time I want to get a nice picture at a special event. When I want to look nice, like church. I sweat. So I keep repeating this mantra. Why should I spend money on a nice dress and stuff when I will hate how I look no matter what. I know I will be drenched. I need to get over this and get my butt out to look at some more dresses. I will fight it. I know this. Life is full of doing things that you know you must do. Surrender. Just do it. Hey that's a great slogan.

Ok, going to try to sleep a little more. Usually I take a shot of NyQuil and can sleep a cold off. It's not doing the trick this time. I was up most of the night. I just want to feel better. I don't have time to be sick.

Keep the mood and the food real.......


  1. My husband and i are under the impression that Niquil just doesnt have the kick it used to have. We think that they took something out of it so it wouldn't have to be put behind the pharmacy counter when all that hub bub started a few years ago about people using over the counter medicine to make drugs. Well we think they wanted Niquil to remain on the shelf where people were more likely to buy it.....Thats our story and we're sticking to it. LOL! Hope you feel tons better soon! Hugs! deb

  2. I think they took the "good stuff" out of Nyquil a few years back. You might be better off going to the pharmacy counter and asking for one of the cold/flu remedies they keep in the back. Feel better soon!

  3. "hugs" I hope your feeling better soon!! Drink lots of fluids.

  4. Wait, did they take the alcohol out of Nyquil? Well heck, I can use it again! Of course, it probably won't work as well...hope you feel better, Dana.

  5. hope youre feeling better Dana!


Tell me what you think!
