Yesterday we missed Steven's birthday party because I was sick and napped throughout the day. I woke up feeling better this morning, but then the tiredness and sinus pressure took me down again. It does not help that we are under a flood watch for later today and the barometer is jumping around either. I am so sensitive to any changes in air pressure even without being sick with a cold, so this just makes it worse.
Jeff is outside trying to get my greenhouse finished up today. I sure hope he is able to complete the job before the bad weather comes in around 4 p.m.. He had most of it done already so there are just a few things left to do on the outside and then he can work on the inside floor and the shelving. I really need it to get done so I can start more plants in there from seed and my tomato plants can also move in there to give them a HUGE head start before I risk putting them directly out in the garden.
The flood watch is in effect for 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. this afternoon. There are some burn scar areas in Idaho that they are worried will slip down into the rivers clogging them up and causing widespread flooding. One of those rivers runs through our area. I am worried about a friend who lives down by the river and could be cut off by the flood. She lives alone now since her husband passed away and she is not in the best of health. Hopefully one of her kids can convince her to come stay with them for a few days.
Well it's time for me to switch out some laundry that I am doing and then go and lay down for a bit. I'm dizzy, my ear hurts, and I got nothing energy wise. Be blessed all and please try to not get this cold like I have...it's not fun!
I suffer from air pressure headaches and have found that Sudafed relieves the headache. Took me forever to figure it out and I was worried about taking took much ibuprofen. Here in Tenn you have to get it from the pharmacist. Hope you feel better soon.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I had forgotten about Sudafed. I had to take it on a regular basis for years and stopped. I will have to check with my doctor to make sure that it will not react badly with some of my other medications.Delete
Sorry to hear that you are, literally, under the weather, Debbie. Hope you feel better soon.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much my friend.Delete
Sorry to hear that you had to miss the birthday party- such milestone moments for kids and adults...But good on you to take care of yourself. I hope the flood watch passed with no big events happening. But if your area got the kind of rain we got yesterday, oh my, watch out. I'm still in crash mode so have to still take it easy today. Take good care -- and puppy girl is sound asleep at my feet on the bed as I type...and a whopping 64# at 8 months last week. Cheers SJ in Vancouver BC CanadaReplyDelete
(((((((HUGS))))) My goodness your puppy girl is getting big! We did not get the bad storm here at our place, but just south of Pullman got hit bad! They had flooding and high winds. A friend of mine lost most of her chickens due to the flooding.Delete
This last cold Hubs and I had really took us down, plus the infection. Take is easy my freind.ReplyDelete
Thanks my friend. I think I am finally getting a bit better. Jeff and I are headed over to Potlatch later to pick up Bradley and Isaiah and then watch Bradley's baseball game. Chris has to work and Heather is teaching a class. We are so blessed to be able to help them and enjoy watching Bradley play ball. :)Delete
