~ Flu, Bitterly Cold Weather & Lacking Motivation ~

source unknown

I hope everyone had a blessed holiday season!  I got my flu shot the end of September I think and now I have what is called a "mild" case of the flu.  If you haven't gotten a shot, run ~ don't walk! ~ and get one. Dr said that having had the flu shot diminishes the symptoms. I just know that I am so grateful that I don't have the full blown version!  I haven't experienced anything like this in many years. Of course, I know there are worse things going on but just wanted to encourage you to get the shot if you haven't.

It was 22F here this morning and horrendous northerly winds all day. I think it's going to be about 15 tonight.  At least we don't have the snow and ice like many have. Possible chance of that over the weekend.

Ok, do you think I've complained enough?  LOL   Hoping you are healthy and happy!


  1. Praying you feel better. My #2 had an egg sensitivity so no flu shot for her. And my #2 follows suit as she has been more ill after receiving the shot. I wash my hands til they are raw while teaching my littles.

  2. Complain as much as you want...we all are!! :)

    I get the flu shot every far so good this year. Who knows, but I trust my doctor.

    Stay warm!

  3. Oh noooo I'm so sorry you're sick Pat. I had something right before Christmas and went straight to the doctor and got me some drugs. Yep, antibiotics worked right away. Give yourself permission to do nothing but relax.

  4. Somehow it makes me feel better if I am sick in really COLD weather like we're having now!!! NOT that I ever WANT to be sick or ENJOY being sick! It's just that it seems so odd to have the FLU or a cold when it is perfectly beautiful outside!!! That's the only time I've had the flu - in pretty weather!
    I got MY flu shot......Louis Dean didn't! For the FIRST time since we've been married!
    Hope you are feeling better soon!!!!

  5. Pat, I'm so sorry you have the flu. That doggone shot just doesn't seem to be working this year. Please get well soon.

  6. I also got a flue shot and I am SO glad that I did! I pray you feel better REALLY soon! Have a blessed and restful day! It is 10 degrees here this morning... BRRRRRRR! HUGS!

  7. I did get the flu shot back in September, Pat. I'm so sorry that you've been sick. Yes, our weather is sooo cold, but at least it's sunny. Take care and get better soon.

  8. Oh goodness, get well soon? Poor thing....on top of that, it is really cold there. Rest up. xo

  9. Hope you feel better soon! Stay warm in this unusually cold weather we're having. :)

  10. Have heard that this year's flu shot, does not cover all strains. This happens now and then.

    So sorry you are going through this. Do hope you will soon begin to feel better!!!!!!!

    Yes, the weather is awful. We in the NE, are kind of used to this cold, but southern places are not.

    Take care.

    Gentle hugs,
