Fire in My Belly

I’m feeling draggy and blah.  I thought I had a case of Cabin Fever. Food hasn’t been very interesting me to lately either. I thought it was trying to adjust to this month’s One Small Green Change of a lactose free diet.

I woke up with a fire in my belly. Actually, it was in my lower back. Turns out that fire in my back is a kidney infection. I have orders to take it easy, drink loads of cranberry juice (no stretch there. Cranberry is one of my favorite juices), and let the meds do their thing.

I’m good at many things – sewing, building, baking. I’m not very good at sitting around and being sick.

Being sick annoys me. It’s boring. My brain wants to me to start and finish items on my Do It Yourself Honey! List. My body says, “Fat chance girlie. I’m not leaving this sofa, unless it’s to take a nap in the bedroom.”

Fortunately, Blitzkrieg hasn’t left my side. He’s being extra snuggly because he senses I don’t feel well.

My special Pekingese powers make Lisa feel better when she is sick.

It’s times like these when I do something simple like pick up the TV remote (the upside to my convalesce is I’m caught up on Downton Abby) and Blitzkrieg gives me a look that says, “hey, you moved your leg when you changed the channel. I want my chin rest back where it belongs please.” This is miles from the little abused dog, who was so afraid of being hit by small objects, that he walked across the room every time I picked up the remote to change the channel.

As much as I want to install my new garage door opener this weekend. I have to park it on the sofa. I need to be at my best for a very exciting event.
