So not what the doctor ordered

This has not been the week I had planned.
It was supposed to be an exciting week with volunteering at the local rescue mission in my town, and going up to NY/NJ to do Hurricane Sandy relief work. Not to mention, being the ultimate hostess for some visiting relatives.
What happened instead?
The world's nastiest head cold, that's what happened.
2 boxes of Kleenex, 2 rolls of toilet paper, 1 bottle of NyQuil, 1 bottle of Mucinex, a bag of cough drops, more rounds of the neti pot than I can count, and 5 days later-
I am still sick.
I started on antibiotics for it this morning.
All I do is sit/sleep/stare vacantly at Netflix for about 2 hours, and then sit up for an hour, sit/sleep/stare for 2 hours, sit up for an hour.
I haven't left the house since Tuesday, maybe Wednesday. It's all a blur. I can't remember anything.
All I want at this point is to sleep through the night. Right now it feels like the impossible dream.
here's a video to entertain you -

LOOKING FOR VIETNAM DRAFT LOTTERY PARTICIPANTS!! Nearly 50 years ago, on December 1, 1969, America sat glued to their television sets. CBS Washington correspondent Roger Mudd was at the Selective Service headquarters, where he said the words that would change the lives of thousands of men and their families. “Good evening…Tonight for the first time in 27 years the United States has again started a draft lottery.” NY Congressman Alexander Pirnie, the ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, reached into a nondescript glass container, and pulled out the first little blue capsule. On it was written a date, a birth date to be exact, and every American male born in the years 1944-1950 born on that date were drafted into the U.S. Military. ​ September 14 was the first number drawn. April 24 was second, and December 30 was third. By the end of the night, every young man had a draft number of 001-366. It was expected that those in the lowest one-third of the numbers would be drafted. A higher number, closer to 300 were probably safe. ​ The Draft had been around for many years, but it was at the time, still a volunteer draft. A man had a choice whether or not to join. On December 1,1969 that all changed. ​ The anniversary of the 1969 lottery is approaching. I am writing a book about those men whose draft numbers were 001-100. I am trying to find the men, or their surviving their families, and spouses, to be interviewed about how the lottery changed their lives. I am interested in interviewing any man who had a low lottery number, this includes war veterans, as well as conscientious objectors, dodgers, or those rejected for health reasons. If requested, your name does not have to be included with your story in the book. Privacy will be respected. ​ If you or someone you know may be interested in sharing their story about how the Vietnam War Draft Lottery changed their life, please contact me at or visit ​ Thank you. Please feel free to share this post with others. #memorialday #supportourtroops #godblessamerica #vietnamwar #vietnamveteran
