I went to work Friday & Saturday even though I could feel my body fighting something & my energy levels were nowhere near ideal.
by Saturday night, my body was weak and I had no appetite so I got in bed early and slept for almost 12 hours. <—!
Sunday was spent sorting & throwing things away in preparation for the move. it’s amazing how much we’ve thrown & given away. bags & bags.
in between some mild productivity, there was crying & whining to Billy about just how terrible I felt. completely congested head, chest pain, cough, scratchy, dry throat, body aches, and serious fatigue. it’s no secret that allergies are at an all-time high this year: allergy season comes early with high pollen counts.
with such limited time in Dallas, I started to feel frustrated and sad about having to cancel plans and not being able to enjoy the gorgeous sunny weather outside.
you know all I wanted to do was ride my bike!
I’ve never been a big fan of the phrase:
because I think we have the ability to change our circumstances and create the things we want in life. but the truth is, a sinus infection is what it is. and this weekend, from Saturday afternoon on, was what it was. a time to rest my body, get off my feet for the 1st time in ages, and spend some quality time cuddled with my best friend on the couch. he has an uncanny way of making me laugh no matter how crappy I feel.
and then he had the genius idea to pick up food for dinner, and I left the house for the 1st time all day to ride with him. I need a mask or a protective bubble.
it practically feels like summertime here, but we picked up hot pho soup.
and turned down the air conditioning at home. the soup temporarily cleared my head.
and then I slept for another 10 hours. I feel a tiny bit better today, but I’m hesitant to spend time outdoors, so I’ll make the most of my circumstances, using the day to continue packing at home, which is exactly where I’m supposed to be.
