Sleeping and Naps Are Good For the Soul…

There is a lot to be said about napping and getting lots of rest when you are not feeling well. For the last two to three weeks I have been doing nothing but sleeping and napping. Finally on Monday night (February 23) I went to bed at 9:30pm and got up at 9:50am on Tuesday morning. I like to get a lot of sleep, but that was a long time. But, man did I feel good that day. I even got a little bit done and some laundry to boot. I finished my z-pack on Saturday (Feb. 21) and was still dragging around through the weekend. Every time I went out to do a few chores, I wore out after coming in. I was beginning to think that I wasn’t ever going to get any energy back. I was thinking that I was going to have to call the doctors office again and see if there was something else going on. Then I woke up on Tuesday morning refreshed and feeling more human than I had for a long time.  I am still coughing a little but only because I still have some sinus drainage and am bringing up some phlegm. Thankfully not near as much as I was.

The only bad thing is, Hubby has now caught something and is coughing and not feeling well. I don’t want anything back. He doesn’t sound as bad as I did and hopefully he won’t get any worse. He is ready to quit his part time job and be re-retired. He will be done at the end of March. He is getting really tired and trying to keep up with the cows and farm work that needs doing, he is wearing down. After all he is 60 and I will be 59 Saturday. 🙂 We are talking about maybe thinning down the cow herd and if I could find the right buyer for a horse or two, I would be willing to maybe sell a couple of horses. MAYBE. I don’t want any to go to slaughter, and I love them all. But the winters are getting harder to adjust to and there may have to changes. This winter has been harder than most. I am not sure why. I have heard some of the seasoned farmers and neighbors saying the same thing. Fifty-nine and sixty isn’t really that old, but some days we really feel it.

Oh well, enough moaning. I really do feel much better and am getting things done. Now I don’t have an excuse to not do housework, so I will really have to get cracking. I need Hubby here to crack the whip and keep me on my toes! And no I haven’t seen 50 Shades of Gray. 🙂

Stay Safe and God Bless!

  1. I always think you can’t sleep unless you are meant to, I’m so glad you are feeling better, and now poor Hubby has succumbed 😦
    Many happy returns for tomorrow 🙂

  2. It’s nice to hear that you are feeling better. I understand too, about slowing down. When I hit 60, it was if a couple of my cylinders went, “Poof!” The most difficult part of growing older is the acceptance. After that, there are a boatload of greater things to come. One does not fret as much, we learn to REALLY stop and smell the roses, and best of all, we appreciate the smaller things in life.

  3. That is so true about slowing down and enjoying life more. You don’t think about those things when you are young and think you will last forever. If only I knew then what I know now. I think my cylinders went poof when I put on an extra 10-20 pounds. I really need to get into a walking routine this year. I don’t hurt as much when I can keep the weight down. I want to be able to ride more if I can this year. Of course I say that every year. 🙂

  4. Thank you, Debra. They were having a good time running around. Hubby is already on the mend. He is getting better a lot quicker than I did. I think he was just tired and caught a bit of a cold. Thankfully he wasn’t as sick as I was. 🙂


  5. Sorry Debra, I think you were talking about the napping puppies napping. I was talking about the ones running around in one of my other posts. I get confused easy! 😀
