Pneumonia Diaries: Day Three

Otherwise known as: Maybe I shouldn't have gone to the office today.

Really, there wasn't much of a choice on that one. I can work from home a great deal of the time. Have computer, will work. But there are some duties that can only be done while in the office. Bills like to get paid. Checks cannot be cut at home is all that I am saying. So, HHBL and I went to the office this morning.

And now I am home and back on the couch. Baby steps to health Deb, baby steps.

Pneumonia, you are a beeyotch! And Sir Super Wicked Cough, I hate you.

I did have a bit better night's sleep last night. And by that I mean that I didn't have to get up and sleep in the chair, although I thought about it a time or two. Sustained slumber was not achieved. I was propped up on pillows like a Victorian heroine just to see if that would help a bit. I did not like it. I am very particular about how my pillows are positioned and fluffed when I am sleeping. Ask HHBL and he will tell you. This sleeping on multiple pillows is not great for optimal sleep for me, and I am not entirely sure that it helped the cough all that much.

Am I whining? I don't care.

So I will most likely spend most of the day tomorrow on the couch as all of the Christmas decorations laugh at me. I wonder if I just covered everything with sheets and left them til next year would anyone notice?

So, in the immortal words of Bob Wiley from What About Bob?, perhaps one of the funniest movies that I have ever seen, "I'm baby stepping! I'm doing the work!"


  1. Whining is totally appropriate when one is ill.

    As for covering the decorations with a sheet it might just work. Many years ago, my parents would take the Christmas tree with lights and decorations down to the basement where it would repose in a corner until it was brought upstairs the following year. I guess it's pretty evident it was an artificial tree.

    Feel better soon!

  2. Sorry you are so ill - no fun at all. Whining on your blog is just fine! Heal quickly.

  3. Oh, Deb! I'm sorry you're so sick. I've had pneumonia before, and it took nearly a month to recover because 1) my (ex) doctor repeatedly (3x) told me it was just a bad case of bronchitis, and 2) I continued to do things like cook and clean and all the other housewifey stuff until the hubby finally demanded the doctor order an x ray. What I'm trying to say is, don't push it, honey. Rest! Let someone else do the checks! And feel better soon. xxxooo
