My Relaxing Happy Saturday

I realize I’m a wee bit late with my weekly goal of posting once a week. That’s because I still am sick, but non-the-less, getting better each day  🙂

I began my day today with a leisurely breakfast, finally got showered and out of my pajamas, dressed for the day.

I had alot of change stashed away in a small sized Zip Loc bag and also my little leather burgundy change purse I bought in the former Woolworth’s store in Miami Beach way back in 1986 !

My local Publix is only five blocks away, so I hopped on Scoot and went  there to their really cool  money making machine ! I just poured all my change into the basin of the machine, and pressed  the ‘okay button.’  The machine made noises, and very soon, I had my receipt slip that said ” $27.00 and something.”  I took it to the customer service and received my green cash ! That was an awesome experience for me ! I was all smiles  😀

CVS is over on the opposite corner and I needed to go pick up my prescription of Desloratadine. That’s a generic of Clarinex. This is by a doctor’s prescription, only. The over-the-counter allergy meds don’t phase me at all. This “generic” was Eighty-four dollars and change.

I made a  albacore tuna sandwich for lunch , with a banana, and watched  The Weather Channel while eating.

After lunch was finished, it was time to really relax. I turned on some soothing Zen music, closing my eyes, praying to get over this sickness I’ve had for a month.

Later this afternoon, I watched a movie on The Hallmark Channel, and after that, bumped it down a notch to HGTV and that is currently what is on right now.   🙂

For dinner tonight I made sauteed chicken breast with  Bertelli extra virgin olive oil,  with basil sprinkled on the chicken. Fusilli gluten free pasta went with it.

I feel really good tonight. Better emotionally than physicaly, but less stress will always make us feel better.  🙂

And this concludes my Saturday.


Still Sick Update

I’m still sick with whatever this thing is ! March 2nd and feeling worse.

When I cough, there is hard pain in lower back of my head. It stops when coughing stops.

Now I have a pulled muscle and ribs fractured from coughing so much. Very painful, just  moving in any way.

The head pain is worse than the rib pain, though.

I have not been eating much…just light foods and absolutely no cookies or stuff like that. No taste for them.

I forgot to take an extra Ester C last night. That seemed to help with all the symptoms the two nights I took it. That totals 1,000 mg of Ester C per day, if I don’t forget. My round of antibiotic is done, and I take Clarinex by prescription. It helps. It’s very expensive, though. $97.73 for fifteen tablets.

The weather here is gorgeous and sunny…..and a VERY HIGH POLLEN COUNT !!!   I don’t go outside , only if I absolutely have to go to Publix or CVS five blocks away from here. I ride my scooter, so I need to wear a pollen mask. I bought a box of fifty of them from CVS Friday, for only $11.00 and change.

I have an appointment with my primary care Dr. tomorrow, Monday at 10:30 a.m.  My right side lung is so sore , it’s hard to tell if pain is from the ribs, or fluid in my lungs.

I hope and pray so much that this thing that has me so sick, will go away and stay away !
