Under the Weather

I don't like being under anything, except the covers on my bed when it's time to sleep, so this cold I woke up with this morning, has me down but not out. Until this leaves, I won't be going to the pool. I don't want to spread this around. I know it's because of the weather. When you have 50 one day and then it plunges to 20 the next, your body isn't ready for that kind of onslaught. At least mine wasn't. So, I'm laying low for the time being, and doing my best to get rid of this cold. How are you all doing in this weather if you're where the temps are going crazy? I hope you are all having a good day. Thanks for reading. My notifications are done, since I didn't go to the pool. I will be back later. Have a good day/night wherever you are.

Hope you'll be all well by Christmas. I'm going for my pr-op today to get the kidney stone removed tomorrow. Not sure what to expect, but God will be with me. Take care and stay in from the cold.

That is a good idea to not spread it. I don't let anyone around me sick like that. I was happy when B stayed home because he was sick. Very happy. Get well soon.

Thank you. I don't get sick or have colds very often, but when I do, they really lay me out. So I'm not going anywhere.

But if you happen to go to the pool, I am sure the title of your post is "under the water". Is my guess is right?

That's a good title. I sent a message to my friend I wouldn't be there today. We'll see about tomorrow. I'm really hoping this doesn't last too long.

A daily intake of Vitamin C should strengthen your immune system and ward off colds. Hope the cold doesn't hang around too long.

Must have been from all the hollering you did during the Packers Game @just4him . Just kidding. It can definitely be the goofy weather.

It was too cold to decide to go out this morning. Now at least the snow has stopped and the fog is dissipating.

That's good the fog is dissipating and it has stopped snowing by you. It's very cold here. Teens F and colder wind chills.

This weather snap, an Alberta Clipper, will get me used to the colder weather and then I'll be okay the rest of the year.

I hope you get well really soon. The weather here continues to be pretty pleasant. It creeps up a little, it creeps down a little, nothing too extreme.

So sorry you have a cold. Sure can make a person miserable. We have 22F today but tomorrow will be 36F. Then, a warmup with temps in the 40s.

I don't know what those temperatures are like anymore. I just checked the 10 day forecast. We've got an Alberta Clipper over Wisconsin. There is just one day when we'll have a high of 36, but then it drops back down again. It's going to be cold through Christmas with some snow in the forecast as well, which does make me happy.

I get allergies every day and just getting out when it's cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon has a way of making me get really messed up. I take allergy pills when I need to and usually end up feeling a bit off from them. I wish I could have a few days of real cold weather so the leaves would all fall off so I can start raking them into big piles.

Hope you get over your cold quickly. I had one that lasted about 4 days. I took no medicine. I did drink hot tea and chicken soup. Works every time for me.

I'm planning on a lot of hot tea today. I'm considering making turkey that will give me some good turkey broth. That should work as well as chicken soup, which I can't eat.

I'm feeling terrible, also. Those fast changes in our temperatures, isn't healthy at all! Hope you are doing a lot better, as the week progresses!:)

Thank you. I have my thermals on under a wool sweater and pants and long wool socks. I'm freezing, coughing and blowing. Yes, Mother Nature was definitely not nice to us. I prefer a gradual decrease in temps so we have time to get used to it. Though in the long run, this will be beneficial to everyone as a whole. This cold weather actually kills bacteria and makes people healthy. I just need to get used to these cold temperatures and that's not easy.

@just4him I was cold this morning, got in a hot shower, dried off, then quickly put warm clothes on. This works for me, when my body temperature is too low. Right now, I feel very comfortable!:)

@just4him you could have picked it up from doorknobs or other unclean surfaces. Just saying. Weather changes have nothing to do with making people sick.
