Welcome to Life Through Bifocals

Life is not always clear and easy to figure out. So grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and let's see what we can see.

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Thursday is sure better than Wednesday around here. I spent yesterday either in bed or on the couch nursing a common cold. Most of the time colds don't stop me, I take my Mucinex DM and march on but this time my ears were full so everyone sounded like they were speaking under water and I was really dizzy. So I took the day off and stayed inside hoping that my ears would unplug. They did but the cost was a fever!  It was the kind of day where all I wanted to do was sleep and I did do a lot of that.  Hubby was home to make me tea with with honey and even heated me up some food when I got hungry. He took the dogs out a few times but Becke will only go out if I open the door so I had to get up to open the door.  Daddy can let her back in but I have to let her out - one of her little strange things.

Becke will sleep on my legs when I'm sick or at least stay really close to me, she did so all Wednesday. She is my nurse, checking on me and keeping me company. Do you have a pet that does that for you? It's one of the things I love about pets. 

August, however, wants and needs to play. Usually he goes to puppy day care where he plays with his friends and comes home ready to nap and chill until bedtime.  Wednesday, he wanted to play. Bringing me toys and dropping them on my head, or running up and down the hall making noise, or asking to go out (he rings a jingle bell hanging near the door) and running around the yard in the melting snow and when he comes back in he's wet and runs up and down me.  He is a bit more work, but when he got ready to nap, he would curl up under my arm and fall asleep.  

I remember the days when I would be sick but had small children and so there was no napping, or resting and I cannot image how I did it! I can't image how my daughter does it now with 2 little ones under 3 years old!!  Hubby would be working or needed to sleep after working all night so it is such a blessing to have him home. He is such a loving man who makes me feel so special.

I tell you all this to let you know that I serve a AWESOME GOD who takes care of me and blesses me with love and care I feel blessed even when I'm sick.
How are you feeling blessed these days? 


  1. Sounds like you may have a sinus infection. Your symptoms are similar to those I get when I have one. Glad your hubby is taking care of you. Feel better soon!

  2. I think this crazy up and down weather wreaks havoc with our health, either with allergies or sinus infections or colds. Hope you are feeling better today!

    I have nothing to complain about so I definitely feel blessed.

  3. I hope today is a better day for you. I agree, it's nice to have loved ones to care for us and make us feel better! Love the part about August ringing the bell :)

  4. Hope you are feeling better. With the temperature ups and downs I am having a hard time getting rid of my ick. What started out as a bad cold turned into croupe. I still have the cough, but thankfully I have my energy back. Take care of yourself.

  5. A cold doesn't seem like it should be a big deal, but sometimes a cold will settle in and just kick our behinds. My daughter must have that same cold, too. I sure hope that you feel better soon!

  6. Hope that you shake that cold bug fast!!! My dog never strays far from me. It I am under the weather, she knows and checks up on me and gives me little moans, and licky kisses. Have a better day.

  7. Just this morning I was remembering how my Pepper used to sleep with his head on my legs when I was sick. Now he is very old and can not get up on furniture easily so he lays next to my side of the bed. I miss how he "watched over me."

    Head colds can be so miserable. Feel better soon!

  8. What a sweet hubby you have. Skye just wants to play with toys all day however over a month ago when I had a bad weird heart palpitations she hung around me most of the day. It was unlike her to do that. I assume you are feeling much better now :)


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
