Is everyone out there SICK???


What THE heck!

This flu/cold hit me Monday and started in my chest. Today it wiped me OUT!

I woke this morning feeling pretty good, then around 8:30 I was on the couch. Its times like these that I wished I didnt have little ones at home. Ya know how bad I wanted to lay down without having to get up to change a diaper, get a drink or get something to eat??

Everything on me hurts, even my hair! Im thinking its a sinus infection and bronchitis. All 3 kids have gotten it with different symptoms. Bella woke up Sunday with a nasty cough, sore throat and NO voice! Thats how mine started!

I tell ya,when I cough it feels like my lungs are being ripped out, not to mention my face feels like its falling off, ha!

I see that ALOT of bloggers are going thru similiar symptoms, bless your heart! If you feel ANYTHING like I do I feel for ya!

I just got over a cold a month ago and usually only get hit twice a yr! What THE heck??

How do some of you gals get all you get done while being sick(Kimberly:))??

Luckily Jas had to leave work early to take Dom for his follow up apt and brought me home some cold meds! Im feeling ok now with a little energy.

I hope all you sickies out there start to feel better SOON!

ps. I have my giveaway all planned, I just need to get it all together and take a pic and get it posted, hopefully by the weekend:)

Hi Jen.Hope you are on the mend now.This year i have been sick twice and had the flu twice which is unheard of me, i am out in all weathers walking the dogs and as rule i don't catch anything.I am blamming my poor grandson Ellis,he goes to nursery 2 days a week and since then he has came down will all sorts of bugs.But as my mum says there are lots of people worse of than you,thats the last thing i need to hear or anyone care~Kate~

Kimberly said...

Oh Honey, I feel your pain! I think the sore hair is the worst, mine was like that on Friday. I think I'm a step ahead of your symptoms... I'm at the hacking-up-a-lung stage.

It's not a pretty picture!

Take care, Kimberly

I remember those days...being sick and have little ones, I'll be thinking good healing thoughts for you:)

basketsnprims said...

Jenn, I feel so bad for you, I remember when my kids were smaller & they were sick & I was sick. It makes for a rough couple of days. Sure hope you get feeling better & the little ones.


The Primitive Bucket said...

Oh Jenn sorry you are sick, I'm okay for now!! My late nights haven't caught up with me yet!! Drink lots of fluids..get some rest... That was my motherly advice!!!

Kim~"HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs" said...

Hi Jenn,
Sorry to hear that you're sick...I've been sick, too. Whatever I have it is hard to get rid dh got it first and still has some of it, too! Take good care of yourself.

My*Prim*Cottage said...

Oh my gosh yes! I have had this headache, dizzy, throw-up thing for three weeks! This is the first great day I have had. I hope you feel better fast! Hugs! ~Beth~

Janene said...

Aww Jenn~
I know how horrible it is to be sick and there is nobody there to help with the little ones. I feel so bad for you.
Bring your little ones to me, and I will take care of them while you rest.
They will blend in beautifully with my brood!
Take care of yourself~

Sorry your not feeling well..Hope tomorrow brings better for you!!


Linda said...

Oh jenn - I remember days like that. I wanted MY momma, never mind acting like a momma to my own kids. Since I quit teaching, and we are empty nesters, I haven't had that once! Kids bring lots of germs home so when they grow up and move out, not so many germs.


Kath said...

Hope ya feel better SOON Jenn!


Lauren said...

I hope you get to feeling better very soon! <3Lauren

Kimberly said...

Ok, I think I can add another symptom to my list... a lovely stiff neck is setting in... should be lots of fun for the painting class tomorrow!

How're you doin'?

Terry said...

Oh man Jenn! I don't usually get sick, and it sounds like I really don't want this one. Did ya try Zicam? I know, I know, but it really did help me when I thought I was getting a sinus infection last week.
Hope you feel much better soon.

Jazy said...

My Jenn! Sorry to hear you are sick!!! I missed out on getting sick last winter! But at the moment I'm more upset about the heat! we're heading into summer here in Aus

Sandy said...

Oh I pray so much that I do not catch this nasty cold that is going around. I so can not afford to catch it!

I pray that you start feeling better REAL SOON!!!

Jenn, I am so sorry that you and the kids have been sick. I hope all of you will feel better soon.
If I was closer, I'd come help you out with the kids and whatever else you needed.
Take care of yourself!

Sue@CountryPleasures said...

Sure hope your feeling better soon, not fun at all esp. when you have kids at home, I remember those days!

Tammy said...

I know whatcha mean about this cold stuff. I came home last night from work, and I felt sooo bad. Im feelin somewhat better this morning, but all I wanted to do last night was go to bed. And at 6 pm no doubt. Im trying to fight it off, but I dont know. I think it's gonna get the best of me.

I hope you feel better soon. Hugs, Tammy

Jen, Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. Boy do i understand how you feel. When I was sick I just wanted to be left alone.

Goode Morning... A November Morn that is rainy & chilly...

I am so sorry for your sickness, we had a bout with stomach viruses around here not long ago, it does take a toll on you. You are in my thoughts.

I hope all things get to be better with the financial situation (alot of us are in the same boat) & the sickness.

Many Blessings 2 You during this WeeKeNd, Pamela
I am adding you to my friend & family list...

Thank you so much for following my blog! My blog has been nominated for an award but I have only had 1 vote. I thought I would ask if you could help me raise cancer awareness by voting for my blog. If I win it could generate so many new readers and hopefully help others with their battle.

Here is the link to vote:

Hi Jen...

Been following your blog for awhile, but never posted till now...
Oh my dear fellow crafter, I know your pain, and I remember those days with kiddies, too...but mine are grown now, and when I get sick, like now, I can curl up in a corner and be nasty...LOL! I do have pets, tho, and there are a ton of things behind me that are all GREAT INTENTIONS, but at this time, and as "simple-needs" said, this stuff hangs on for weeks, and I am on my SECOND round already!!!

So, my advice? STAY IN BED, RESIST ALL TEMPTATIONS when feeling "okay", cuz it will sideswipe you if you don't rest the first round-a-bout!

I've had mine since the last week of October...just got rid of it, ALMOST, and now got it again a few days ago...SQUARE ONE!

RoBiN said...

Hi Jenn...

Thanks for replying to MY made me call the Doc...which I already had a "follow-up/check-up" appt. set for the 21st, but thought I would ask WHEN IS A COLD NOT A COLD? Her reply was when you run a fever of 101+ or the mucus is greenish and I am in the clear for the moment but they are "on notice" that I made need to come in sooner, if needed.

Thank you!!!
