The Sunday Salon: Colds, Games and Last Minute Items

This has been quite a week. I caught the head cold from HELL. I think The Hub brought it home from the emergency room when he took my son for his sprained ankle. It hit me hard and provided no warning and triggered a lupus flare so my exercise routine went out the window. Needless to say, I am feeling rather “slothy” (is that a word)? For the most part I am much better, but the slothy part is what bugs me the most. Not enough energy to be myself, but not quite sick enough to warrant a day of bed rest.

In a weak moment, I agreed to play another round of the Game On Diet and we start January 4th. The first round was quite an eye-opener and many of the habits stuck. Many, but not all so this second time around ought to fix that. Especially since my team (The Ding Dongs) will reign supreme once again. Winning is so glorious. Why not do it again?

I spent the weekend taking care of some last-minute Christmas items. I’m happy to say that I am all caught up and now I can relax. I am off from work until January 5th and I cannot tell you how excited I am about the time off. I am in a really good mood right now and want it to last for as long as possible.

As for reading, I finished When She Flew last night and immediately wrote-up the review which will post on the 28th for a book tour. I am now reading Accidental Lessons which I am pleasantly surprised by, and of course Moby Dick for Moby Dick Monday and a slew of other books. I am just not capable of reading one book at a time! What is wrong with me?

I’m not cooking anything special today because of my slothy mood. Have you ever just gotten tired of eating? This past week has been a holiday food free-for-all and although I did not partake in much of it because of my cold, I tired of looking at it. Cookies, cakes, candy…blah blah. It’s all just too much sometimes.

What did you do today?

  1. Oh no, Ti! I’m sorry you’ve been so sick. My turn was a few weeks ago and I hope that’ll be the end of it for a long long while. I hope your son’s ankle is healing smoothly.

    Good luck with the second round of Game On Diet! From your success this past round, you should do well this time too. 🙂

    I hope you have a great week and feel better soon!

  2. We just got home from my mom’s…we were celebrating Christmas early. I had this ooey gooey chocolate dessert that was soooooo yummy. But now I feel kinda sick. I think I should’ve eased back into the dessert.

    1. Eating a dessert like that after not eating one for so long would do a number on anyone. A bit too rich I guess. I am all over sweets and the holiday hasn’t even arrived yet. Sweets are not my thing but I did partake in some cookies during a cookie exchange and it reminded me why I don’t like sweets.

  3. Hoping that your “slothy” feeling is on the way out…sorry to hear that the cold trigged your lupus flare.
    You seem to handle your lupus well .I have a friend that has astma and her lupus gets flared with asthma attacks. Enjoy your break, you deserve the rest!

  4. Beware of the Ho’s, is all I have to say. Never underestimate the power of a woman with an annoyingly large butt with a very competitive spirit! Sorry you caught the crud. It is a bad time of year for that. But as my mom just said, it is looking alot like Christmas because my dad is sick. Happens every year. I am happy for you, that you are work-free for awhile. Have a good one!

  5. I agree about too much rich food. We had ham and leftover ham for four meals straight at my in-laws. I don’t want to see another ham again for about a year. 🙂

    I hope you enjoy your vacation and that you start having more energy. I go through bouts sometimes with my hypothyroidism, and I know it frustrates me when I’m feeling yucky and not be able to do much about it.

  6. Now that I read this post, I realize why Jill Rhapsody thought you had some serious problems!!! That is NOT the proper response to cookies and goodies!

    hope you are feeling better soon!

  7. Sorry to hear you got sick and feel slothy. I love that word.
    I had some kind of larengytis and bronchial problem. I couldn’t talk for two days and still have trouble speaking. I have one more 1/2 day and then I’m off until January 5th too. Hope you feel better soooooon.!!!
    Chicken soup…lots of it. LOL
