The sauce for tonight's dinner has nothing to do but simmer now.
And of course Vikings has been on. I can do without all the commercials for the upcoming season, but it is what it is.

Yes, I know, things were going so well with my health. They still are - this is just the flu and will go away, and I don't have a ton of pain and other symptoms to worry about on top of it.
If you really think it's the flu, Laurie, you should contact your doctor ASAP. In your rundown condition and recovering from surgery, it could get serious quickly. You can get an anti-viral shot to lessen the potential severity the the flu, if you have it. And, cold doesn't cause flu - only exposure to the virus does

In my cleaning the guest room, I just unearthed a whole plastic barrel full of shoulder pads. When I Googled "uses for old shoulder pads," all I could find was cat toys, hanger pads, and cutesy crap that I don't need. I don't have a cat. Though using them as scales for a Little Mermaid costume sounded interesting.

I think I'll stuff them into a pillow.

Didn't shoulder pads go out of fashion in the late '80s/early '90s?

I actually made a stool from a plastic bucket with a twist off top, made a nice padded seat, with a curtain around it. Looked really cute. And I stashed all my shoulder pads that I snipped out of all my jackets and shirts in the bucket. Didn't everybody?

TB wanted to take me to the ER yesterday but I have just had so much of it lately. It seems like the flu in some ways but not in others. All I know is I can't hold onto any food though am not throwing up, I am tired, clammy, sometimes feverish, coughing and losing weight like crazy. Maybe I should listen to my hubby and go to at least a clinic tomorrow.

Are you achy and have a fever? If so, it's the flu. If not, it's probably a cold. I was sick from Dec 24, until the first of Feb. It would start to go away and then start all over again. But no achies and no fever. Just a lot of congestion and coughing, sneezing, blowing my nose.
