I'm still feeling mega sick.
But I have to sand that bedroom wall and get it ready for painting ... TODAY.

I hope I can do it.

Because I've never had the flu before... it's hitting me really bad.  I'm thinking of going to the Dr.  Maybe they can give me something to stop the vomiting?  That would be good.

1.24 pm: sanding is done and the first coat of paint is on.
 Now back in bed wanting to die. Seriously this flu thing is brutal!

4.35 pm:  And sorry Tracy, but I got outta bed and put the 2nd coat of paint on the wall.  Now its DONE.
Oh, I also put on a beef and bacon stew for the family... cos sick or not, being the mother doesn't stop when ya sick.

Still feel like a limp dishrag... NO ENERGY what so ever.  Stew is the same.  And he went to work!   How can I laze in bed all day when he's at work?

Stew came home early again today.  He's feeling marginally better, wish I was.
When I cough my lower chest/ribs hurt like some bugger has beat me up!  
That doesn't usually happen when I get the cough.  *sigh*   I'm a walking misery guts.

End of day:  Stew's gone to be early as he has to be up at 5 am to catch a flight to Wellington.  He's going to be back Friday night. I hope he feels a lot better tomorrow or he's gunna have a crap trip.

    Sharnee! Autocorrect!!

  4. I cant help with the throwing up Chris, but in Australia Diabetics get the flu injection for free because we are considered 'at risk'. Something to think about for next year.
    At least the wall can be done a little at a time, that will make it easier for you

  5. Call Hire A Hubby or someone to do the wall, you need to rest or you are not going to get better. Seriously - REST!!!!!

  6. I am going to come & tie you to that bloody bed!! And NOT in a good way!!! Stop doping stuff and rest or you will feel like this for longer - trust me, that used to be my way.

  7. hope you get better soon mum...lots of love..

  8. Ha! What Tracy said! Look after yourself and feel better soon xxx

  9. I had the same flu last week, started on the sat and I didn't feel better until the Thursday. Fever, no energy, no appetite which was good lol and coughing. Its really draining and still find this week I'm heaps better but still not 100%. Hope you feel better soon :)

  10. Ohhh you poor thing, I feel for you I do. But rest try to rest...

  11. Oh I feel for you both. I hope you get better soon - resting will help.
