Why So Tired?
Why the nap, and why was I so tired? I woke up with a sore throat and now I am getting a stuffy nose. Clearly I am fighting off a cold. I don't have a fever as of last check, but I am achy and coughing off and on.
Could be from the swimming, of course, or I might have picked up something from one of the kids at school.
I'll just take it extra easy for a few days. I bought some hot and sour soup, and some chicken noodle soup at the Chinese food bar at ShopRite. And I got some orange juice.
I have cold meds and aspirin at the hand, and hot tea. I'll sniff some tea tree oil steam, and take some extra vitamins.
I am not happy to be sick, but rather satisfied to know my tiredness had an actual physical cause.
The Boys are hanging out around the barn. The mosquitoes are horrible. I have the fans blowing in their stalls so they do have some refuge. The rain is not helping the bug situation.
Some good news on the outdoor kitty front. I actually managed to pet Patches yesterday. And he is coming into the carport when I feed him letting me sit close by as he eats. He was shy of my hand this morning, but given time, I think I will be able to tame him. He has been making overtures to me lately, rolling on the ground not to far off, but if I approach he runs off. Still, it's a far cry from the way he was a year ago.
I just need to be patient.
