Not Expected

Well, I didn't feel well yesterday morning, and at 2am woke up to a fever of 102.3°F.  I had to wake Hubby up.  Today was pie baking day, along with two other dishes, which required a trip to town.  Yeah, I just wasn't expecting this.    I sipped herbal tea all day yesterday, so I hope it just sped up the burning out of the fever and sickness, but my stomach says no.

If two girls of mine want to bake, it'll happen.  Otherwise they'll go without it for the big meal.  I'm not sure I'll be eating anyway.

Why, oh why?

Dear Kristina, you have pushed yourself so hard all this gardening and harvesting season that your body has finally said, "Enough!" Funny how our mental stamina can keep us going almost indefinitely, but our bodies know when it's time to shut down for some much needed rest and rehabilitation. (Of course, when this happens at a time when "mom" is required to be in top-notch form to make a holiday happen . . . poof! Things fall apart rapidly.) Time for others who are perfectly capable to do what needs to be done. It will be "different" but so be it. Nuthin' for you to do, friend, but let it go and take care of YOURSELF.

Maybe the universe's way of telling you to slow down? Do you take vitamin D3? I find it really helps with boosting the immune system and preventing colds, flu, etc. When I do feel something coming on I use essentials oils on my feet and throat glands. It nipped the icky bug going around work last week. 8 drops of organic Tea Tree oil in 2 Tbl. of a "carrier" oil. I use sweet almond massage oil. Apply to the bottom pads of your feet and between your toes 2xs a day, throat glands too. Keeps me much healthier... Hope you feel better soon!

Well, it might be the result of weeks of stress...just saying... You had better take care of yourself! I hope whatever you have, leaves soon and that your girls take care of you for a change. Feel better!
