NASTY HEAD COLD GETS ME DOWN

I am writing this tonight laying on the couch.
I had a completely sleepless night last night,my sinus's and throat ached all night stopping any chance of sleep. Finally early this morning as Hubbie left for work at 5:30 I got settled in the recliner in the living room with an ice pack held to my face and finally dozed for maybe an hour before it was time to get ready for market.
The thought of staying home today would have been a real posibility if I had not have had a large 10 cake order from the camp that regularly buys caramel cakes for their session ending banquet.
A little slower than usual but I made it and the heat at market soon made me feel even worse. Sneezing,coughing ,nose dripping,not a good day at all. Sales were pretty slow maybe that's part of the reason!
Finally 2:00 rolled around and I got in my air conditioned van out of the 95 degree heat. I managed to get all my errands ran and got hold of daughter to meet me here to help me unload the van.
I went to sleep sitting in the van waiting for her to get here,that's what kind of day it's been.
This is the worst head cold I've had in a long time and in this extreme heat it is really kicking my butt.
I've been on the couch napping off and on all evening only getting up to eat a little supper which had no taste at all and to do my chicken chores.
No baking tonight,postponed that until tomorrow hoping for a better day. Planning on a big dose of Niquel tonight to help me sleep and that should make things better,hopefully.
Grateful to the Lord for the strength He gave me today and His continuing love.
Good Night and God Bless.

I just hate it when a cold hits in the summer time..bad enough in the cold months! Take the med's and vit's and get well soon! I think maybe your body needs a rest! :D

Summer colds are the worst I think. They just don't seem to go away quickly. Hope you got lots of sleep last night and are feeling much better. Have a blessed weekend.
