Me (smiling): I feel much better today!
Stable Boy: That's good. You made a dead person look happy the last few weeks.
Niiice, huh. Unfortunately, that's probably true! It started with a few painful days of the body-aching flu that morphed into a nasty, energy-draining cough and culminated this week with a bout of the stomach flu (spending the night on the bathroom floor is NOT PLEASANT!)
The only thing I've managed to accomplish recently is play with Ranger and lay around the house. It was kind of a downward spiral. I had no energy, so nothing got done. Things piled up and very quickly became overwhelming in my exhausted state. Sound familiar to anyone?
I still haven't fully shaken the cough, but at least it doesn't keep me up all night anymore. With the temperature being 33 deg. this morning (35-45 deg. higher than recent morning highs), I was tempted to go outside to jog, but I thought I should give my lungs a few more days to recover.
Those of you in the Rexburg area may be wondering how I would stay on my feet jogging outside right now--it's pretty icy out there. Here is my secret weapon. Yaktrax. Slip them on over your shoe and you instantly go from slip and slide to secure footing. They're grrrrreat!
