How I feel: Head Colds and Punxsutawney Phil

As much as I like to pride myself on being a free mover, I have to be honest with the fact I am a diligent planner. I mean spontaneity certainly is NOT this girl’s name or game or claim to fame.

I don’t necessarily have to hit each an every mark on my “to do” list exactly how I have it penned down, but I would at least like to swing by each point.

Well, you can’t do that when you have a stupid head cold!  Dumby in a chair 1

My goodness! It amazes me how demanding these things can be. They are not the flu, but they way they weigh you down…

So I had these big plans for this week, in light of the fact I will (might) be completely absent from blogging Friday, February the 6th until the 13th. (I will be away from my creative lab due to the fact that I need to go and help a family member during that time.)

So anyhow, I had all these plans; paint everyday, write 2,000 words AND edit and revise the novel I wrote in 2013 for NaNoWriMo, do some sketching, JUST BE CREATIVE!

But then this cold showed up. A foul gift from the nose of one of my four year old nephews, and I can hardly concentrate. I mean today I started at 89% and I am closing off with a good 95% or so, which is a far cry from the last couple of days where I was coming in at a good 75%…most of that was spent feeling sorry for myself. dumby in a chair 3

So I couldn’t breathe, I have woken up during the night with my nose running like a faucet, with no tissue near by, wanting to scream because it is like four in the morning and I have to get up and get some tissue, and it has taken me ALL DAY to write 2000 words! (I now have a box of tissue by the bed.)

I am grateful, but nothing else creative was done, besides figuring out several more ways to moan with self pity.

And then to add insult to injury, that blasted ground hog had to see its shadow! BLAST YOU PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL!!!!!!  BLAST YOU! So here we go with six more weeks of winter.

Okay, maybe not Blast you, but dang it if you didn’t let me down Phil…you really let me down.

Am I complaining…Yes! 😀 We all need our moments. But my immune system is much improved so there is a silver lining, that and the fact that I feel like my body has gotten some much needed rest that I had not really considered.

Alas, all is not a loss. I am on the mend. And I have managed to rip through at least 50 levels of the game Two Dots, so as I said, all is not at a loss.

Cheers! and do stay healthy!
