I still heart my pillow

There are rays of sunshine pouring onto the sofa, a very rare sight this winter.  It gives hope that... in spite of the weather forecast of two more snow storms on the way... spring and sunshine are just around the corner.

I was curled up and sleeping on the sofa but now I sit.  Miss Victoria decided to curl up (how I don't know) between me and the back of the sofa.  Said kitty did not move a whisker as I had to figure out how to get up without sitting on her or falling on the floor.  Same said kitty is now stretched out in the middle of the sofa, taking up more real estate than one her size should be allowed.  Have I mentioned that she is cute... and spoiled?

My days have set into a pattern since on this last round of powerful antibiotics... get out of bed later than usual, take pillow to sofa and find a throw and go back to sleep... take pillow to bed because sofa gets uncomfortable and go back to sleep... stay awake long enough to fix some dinner and do dishes before returning to sofa and pillow to watch the Olympics... be awake at 2:00 a.m. when Christopher texts me and shock him by returning an "ok". 

One more day and (hopefully) life becomes more normal.  :)

I certainly hope so. This has got to be exhausting for you all! Doesn't hubby cook? :D

How nice of your furry friend to stay so close, even if it really is too close. We call our girl cat our "nurse kitty" since if anyone is ill she is right there to purr and give comfort.
I hope the antibiotics are completely successful for you.

The antibiotics really upset your system, don't they? I've heard that from others before - especially the more powerful ones. I'm keeping you in prayer that the infection is completely gone, and that you quickly recover from the strong antibiotics and feel much much better.

Praying that your energy returns when you are done with your antibiotics!

I hope you are feeling better very soon! We have a cat who must be four feet long from stem to stern when he stretches out completely. It is amazing how much room a cat can take up!

Feel better soon! Wookie has perfected getting on my SIDE and balancing when I am in bed sleeping. The sheer agony of his 16 pounds wakes me pretty quickly, but when I try to move, he "walks" me like rolling a log. Embarrassing! He sends Victoria a smooch!

We awakened to bright sunshine and drip drip dripping icicles - I hope you are enjoying the sunshine streaming through your window and the hope of feeling better in the days to come! Good riddance to antibiotics - a necessary 'evil' and hello to feeling entirely human again!
