Ever have one of those days when your head feels like it's about the size of a Buick or at least a small Chevy? Yep ... it's been one of those for me though certainly not as bad as last night when I finally got home from my longer than usual 16-hour shift at work yesterday. I had that all-over tired achy feeling, a bit of a fever, and a head that felt like it was at least three times it's normal size and stuffed with cotton.
When I updated my status on Twitter last night with "Feeling like I am coming down with a cold and as my grandmother would say "not feeling a bit good"", Amanda immediately direct messaged me back with "Feeling like Death eating a cracker?". Oh heck yeah! A couple of crackers actually! Maybe even an entire box of saltines!
Thankfully I felt a bit more normal today as I had a day off and a few plans, one of which included my monthly get-together with my friend Rhonda at a local eatery for lunch. Granted, I didn't really feel like eating much of anything (which is probably a good thing considering I could do with eating a lot less!) but we were planning on exchanging Christmas gifts today as well as doing the monthly catch-up on our lives. Besides, I hate to mess up other people's plans so I was glad when I woke up feeling marginally better this morning. Granted, I still seem to have the "big head" and when I cough I sound like second cousin to a seal but the overall aches and pains have subsided and I can function - sort of!
All in all, this probably would have been a good day to sit around and visit a couple of Online Casinos but considering I don't have the best of luck I decided to just visit blogs instead and get caught up on everyone else's lives! That and drink a lot of tea ... lots and lots of tea!
