It started yesterday afternoon

The scratchy feeling in my sinus cavity and the cactus that was growing in my throat began yesterday afternoon.  3:49 pm to be exact.  Or that’s when I noticed it.

I was (and still am) tired and achy.

Sleep wasn’t happening.  At least the kind of sleep I wanted and needed.

I’ve discovered that when I am sick, I have weird dreams.  Between getting warm and comfortable, clutching a wad of tissues, and blocking out my snorting and my (and Mr. Aitch’s) snoring, I dreamt I had to stack blocks in a bizarre game of solitaire that never ended.  Every time I closed my eyes, the game would start over.

I became fully conscious an hour before my alarm was to go off so I just got up and was ready for work way too early.  The half-hour power nap on the sofa this morning was the best sleep I had all night.

Going from 86 degrees in Florida to 30 degrees here might have been a factor.  Most likely it was someone on the plane or in the airport that wanted to share their cold.

And it’s snowing again.

Have a great day.  And stay well!

One thought on “It started yesterday afternoon

  1. Everyone in SC is having sinus issues this week because of the drastic change in the weather. 30 degrees for a week and then it jumped to 80. Pardon me while I go blow my nose again…
