The Hellhole

Thursday, January 06, 2011

Blarg. So much for my plan to blog more regularly in 2011. I wrote Monday that Alan had caught a cold and I followed not far behind - started feeling puny on Tuesday afternoon, had to leave work early Wednesday and stayed home today. Except for two baths and some bathroom breaks, I didn't get out of bed from about 2PM Wednesday until 4PM today, and that was only to migrate to the couch with pillow and blankies. I'm going to work tomorrow because there are a few things that I have to handle but I may not last the whole day. I'm at that stage where I start to think I'm feeling okay, things are better, and then get dizzy and have the shivers.

One thing I don't mind about being sick is the weird dreams induced by a slight fever. Sick is no fun, but makes me dream the oddest things and since I'm tossing and turning, I usually remember them. Early this morning, I dreamed that Alan and I were on a cruise (I blame Sandy for this part) but we weren't on a Disney cruise like she was; we were on The Love Boat - remember that cheesy 80s sitcom? Or was it a cheesy 70s sitcom? Hmm, I just looked it up: it was both. That's not the bizarro part, though. Remember Isaac the Bartender? Well, he had waiters to help him and circulating on the deck where we were, serving drinks, were Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street. Ernie brought ours: Pelligrino & lime for Alan, and some frothy tropical drink for me. Alan loves to drink Pelligrino but I never drink those sweet umbrella-laden drinks. However, I drank this one; I suppose I didn't want to hurt Ernie's feelings. He seems the sensitive type.


  • I hope you feel better soon!

  • Great dream! I've never dreamed muppets before. Maybe my subconscious will take a hint.

    Sorry you're sick, though.

  • I miss you Helly! I am sorry I get so busy at work, I don't have time to email much, and by the time I get home don't think of it. I am sorry I been really bad at keeping in touch the last year or so. I feel aweful! I do get on facebook almost daily.... do you have an account? I want to try and keep in touch more with people, and you are one of those few who I want to keep in my life some way!

  • Ashley, I miss you too! I know what you mean about getting busy. We'll have to try to do better about texting and e-mailing; I'm not on Facebook.
