The Mystery of the Mystery Flu
I do sometimes wonder about these things. Did someone release a germ just to see what would happen. So many people have this right now, as we speak, and in all areas of the country. Even a few fellow bloggers in England have been stricken.
I do want to apologize to everyone who put up with my rant on Saturday. I was so angry about being sick again I was really putting it out there. Believe me, if you thought I was bad on my blog; imagine being home with me that day. I was angry at the world…
On the second day, my anger turned onto alternate bouts of sleeping and crying…why me, I don’t have time for this, what if I get pneumonia and die, blah blah blah…total self pity.
By Monday, I had gathered all my items and took to my bed. I had my tissues, my tissue bag, my cough drops, my Tylenol, the remote, the laptop, and glass of water. I was settling in. I was determined NOT to get out of bed until I was better. And so for the past 6 days I have been in bed reading blogs, watching movies, sleeping etc. My mom called and thought it was a bad idea to stay in bed. She thought I should be on the couch. But bed is better. I can spread out and everything is here. What’s not to like other than being sick! It is a little scary but I can see how being in bed can be fun. After all Edith Wharton wrote all her books in bed. Long hand. Matisse did all his cut outs in bed. Hmmm.
I also watched a couple of interesting movies. One called “Eat, Pray, Love” with Julia Roberts. I thought it was great. I love her anyway. And Javier………swoon. I also watched a rather old movie called “The Day of The Locust” from 1975. A terrifying look at Hollywood circa the 1930’s. I have never seen Donald Sutherland so frightening. And Karen Black was mesmerizing. I can’t believe she wasn’t a bigger star after that movie. Really. The climax came as a total apocalyptic surprise. Just terrifying.
Last night it was supposed to snow. Thank god it missed us. I couldn’t have taken it.
So, of course I have not done any work on my April Bead Journal project since I got sick but I thought I would post it in it’s incomplete form anyway. So you can see how it is coming along. I do like the colors. Especially the green in the fields.
Oh oh. I spoke too soon. It just started snowing………………stop me before I leap from my balcony. (Don’t worry I am only 2 floors up)
