Sick day #2

Yes, I'm still sick.  Yes, I feel worse than yesterday.  I was hoping to get some work done in the garden.  Luckily(?) it was cold, rainy, and windy outside, so I didn't feel guilty about not being able to do much outside.  I did get the rest of the dishes put away (the child who was working on it vanished somehow), reloaded and started the dishwasher, and hung up two loads of laundry in the basement.

A few months ago, our dryer stopped working.  At the time we were a little too busy and didn't want to spend the time/money to get it fixed, so hubby rigged a clothes line in the basement.  We have some old pipes along the basement ceiling from when we had hot water heat that worked perfectly to tie an old umbrella sized clothes line that had a slightly broken pole.  The break made it unusable outside, but worked fine in the basement.  Add a couple fans, and we have a low energy way to dry clothes indoors.

Needless to say, after that work, I was tired.  I did clip a few more coupons, but didn't last long.  After lunch, I took a nap.  Before I laid down, I posted a sign next to my door.  "Napping. Shhhh!"  Thankfully the kids let me sleep... for a little while.  I was awoken to the sounds of a younger child annoying a teenager. 

This evening has been filled with total laziness on my part.  Playing on the computer, watching a little bit of tv, and eating some yummy chili made by my wonderful hubby was about all I had the energy for.  For the most part, I've been in a haze.  Hopefully tomorrow I can get my brain to wake up at least for a couple hours.  The bell choir I'm in is playing two pieces tomorrow.  Neither one is really difficult, but one involves some repeats.  I'll need to be alert and paying attention. 

It's off to bed with me.  Took my vitamins already.  All the kids are in bed pretty early tonight.  I'm hoping they're not getting sick, too.  After church, I'm putting on my comfy clothes and curling up on the couch.
