Food for thought

I was sitting down thinking about how STRONG we as Women are ..... I think I may have come down with the flu, I have been feeling really crappy for the last couple of days, yet I have been dealing. I still get up every morning with the kids, I cook dinner, I clean the kitchen, washed the floors, made my bed, helped the children with their homework, and got some sicky me time on the computer and reading. I took a 45 minute nap, put the dinner way and washed the dishes. .....I bet you wonder where all this is coming from..

Men are such babies when they are sick...I swear my dh acts as if he is on his death bad at the slightest cold. I have body aches, congestion, headache, and chest burn and here I am dealing with it....

We are truly the stronger sex. I don't mean BRUTE strength, but strong willed. We don't let things get us down. I guess that is why, God chose us to be the bearer of children, because if he left it up to the male species, our global population would probably 75 and I don't mean million, thousand, or hundred for that matter...I mean it would be 75 people in the world...MEN CAN NOT TAKE PAIN!!!

I just can't sit on my bum and feel bad, I have to do something. It's taking it's toll on me, but I am trying not to let it get me down. My resistance is low, from all the stress, but I am going to the local Health food store and get some Ginseng and Vitamin C. As a child, I hardly ever got sick. I mean with colds. My grandmother fed us Vitamin C daily along with NASTY, OH SO NASTY Cod liver oil. She must have known what she was doing, because we were rarely ever sick.....I got pneumonia once and a very high fever of 105.6 and had to be packed in ice, but those were my only serious illnesses...

Now that I am grown, I still rarely get sick, but I need to really take care of myself a little better. I mean all around. I want to be here a long time, so I need to make some better choices in life. First thing is I really need to lose some weight. I am not obese, but I need to loose atleast 30 pounds. I need to stop eating so late at night. I need to eat more than 1 meal a day. I need to take better care of myself. PERIOD

Well, the first step is getting some rest...

Until next time.....

Dana...you hit the nail on the head! Men are pansies! We keep going like the energizer bunny because if we don't things don't get done. The house becomes a mess. Hair accumulates on the bathroom floor. Kids don't get fed! I hope you start feeling better. Take your vitamins. Get some rest. And I hear ya about taking better care. I still haven't lost my baby weight and I need to lay off the Oreos and chocolate! I don't know why that diet isn't working for me!

2nd-I completely and totally agree with you..men can not take any amount of pain, and if it wasn't for women so much would go un-done. lol

Get Better Dana!! My husband thought I was trying to kill him when he was sick. He had the flu and his temp was really high, so I use some cold compress and took the blankets off. He was screaming like a little girl. I told him that he had a fever. When his fever broke, he didn't believe that he was screaming. Or that he drank 3 half gallons of OJ. Men!! That is sweet that you have a little nurse to take care of you.
