Eeeeek.....

I have always dreamed of having a day to lay in bed...or even two days. A relaxing time where I wouldn't be bothered. No troubles in the world to worry about. No husband to fight with at the moment. No kids to be bugging me for one thing or another. No work to be done because I didn't have to go that day. No chores at home to be bothered with because I was in bed and didn't have to do them.

Then comes the day that I got what I wished for. A day of laying in bed all to myself. Nobody bothering, no work, no chores....nothing! But did I think about what price all that would come with? Nope! I thought how great it would be to just lay in bed. To be care fee. Yes, I got just that...kind of. I am getting to lay in bed. I am getting plenty of rest. But the price I am paying...well that would be mono! Yes, you read that right...I have mono!

My day of laying in bed and being confined has turned into 3 days. 3 days of being by myself. Well my precious puppies are staying by my side of course, but confinement really sucks! I get bored. I sleep. I hurt. I sometimes think I laid down and allowed somebody to run me over, back up, and do it all over again....and again. This has hit every part of my body. My joints are killing me. It hurts to move, to turn over. Then there are the times I feel the need to get up and smoke. (Yes I know how bad it is for me, please no lectures) Dr gave me a steroid shot, and put me on a Z pack. Do you know what steroids do to you? They make you HUNGRY! Hungry is not exactly what I need to be when I'm in bed, or confined to one room, or when it hurts to move because then there is no getting up and doing jumping jacks.

So I will from now on be careful what I wish for. Sometimes wishes come true, but they may not exactly be in the form that you wished for.

  4. Why would you normally be fighting with your husband? He should be rubbing your feet. That's what I do.

  8. So I guess this would be one of those "Beware of what you wish for" lessons, right?

  10. Oh, man! I am so, so, so, sorry!! My husband had mono one time and he was like a limp fish for a week.
    Well, I hope that if you've got to stay in bed for a few days, that you can at least be comfortable! I hope you feel better soon!!!!
    Hopefully no one else in your family will get it either!

  13. Oh no! I hope your sentence is up soon. Being bed ridden is such a sucky deal. When you are up to it get out side and enjoy a change of scenery. It will do you good;)

  15. By the way, my husband had mono in college. Apparently there's a chance that it could still 'shed' and I could get it. Bleh. Oh well, to make you feel better, I gave you an award - Versatile Blogger: http://babystepsinhighheels.blogspot.com/2011/04/friday-birthday-and-award.html

  17. Good Lord! That JUST what you needed, isn't it! You poor thing. Keep saying things like, "This too shall pass." and "That which does not kill me only makes me stronger."
    AND Watch movies that you love!
