The Sounds of Silence

It sure is quiet around here with Kat at school and Shane back at work.  It's my first full day alone since before Christmas.  I had plans to make the most of it by doing all kinds of industrious homemaker-ly things like cleaning and cooking and organizing things.

Instead, I've been dealing with a head cold for the last couple of days, so I've decided to do only what work must be done and catch up on some blogs this morning, then spend the middle of my day reading and napping.  I feel so lazy when I take a down day like this (and something of a whiner when I blog about it), but I know my body and know that it's the quickest way for me to shake the cold for good and get back to being productive.

Oh, I'll still enjoy my first day of quiet...just not in quite the way I had planned.

Hope you feel better soon! I am so glad Shane is back at work. I know that is a big weight off your shoulders.

Happy Days, glad Shane is back to work, I'm sure it's taken one thing off your mind anyway. I know what you mean about being sick, I always try and take it easy when I start to feel run down. Better to just lie down and lose one day to sickness than to plow through it and end up knocking yourself off your feet for a week. Keep well and enjoy the rest of your first day of quiet:)

Congrats on your day alone! And sorry to hear that you aren't feeling so hot. And you are not a whiner!
