Well what I thought were bad allergies turned out to be a bad cold instead. I feel like I've been hit by a truck. And of course when I should be resting, I can't because I'm so uncomfortable and keep waking up to sneeze a half dozen times, pee, use my inhaler, blow my nose, cough and then groan piteously because my ribs hurt so bad from coughing. In a nutshell: I'm a mess. I went to bed at 9:00 to try and get a head start on sleep b/f the hubs came to bed. He's been snoring so bad that I end up on our very old and uncomfortable couch for a few hours till the pain in my back, hips and shoulders force me back to the bedroom. But instead he did a turn on the couch all night so that I could get some rest in the bedroom, bless his heart.
I loaded up on cold meds and went to bed where I fell asleep till 11:30, when I had to get up to pee. Then I laid there for what seemed like just a few minutes, tossing and turning, and couldn't believe I had to get up to use the bathroom again. I looked at the clock and it was 1:20. Now I have zero memory of falling asleep, and it certainly didn't feel like I had gone back to sleep. I didn't have the sense of waking up from dreaming or anything.
I took Pepper out and went back to bed where I lay there wide awake....random & feverish thoughts running through my head:

I'm the only person I know that gets sick without a fever...I need to get these comforters washed....God I feel like shit....Someone please cut my head off...Sagan needs to go to the groomer next week.....I wonder if Walmart has air conditioners in yet....Ow my ribs!....This cold gel mask feels pretty good on my face....Dammit the velcro is stuck in my hair...What's that pain?
