Maybe this round of sleeplessness and depression could relate to my friends' husband dying. She is much younger than her husband as I am younger than mine. Plus I feel so much for her - they have an adult handicapped child which lives at home. And one of her daughters was killed last year in an accident (drunk driver hit her). I should realize that it's normal to be out of sorts when bad things happen to friends.

up out of bed - 1/2 dressed due to severe cold emails lunch for me and MIL carefully so as not to cough or sneeze on it minor updates to the website took my personal things out of bedroom so that DH can prepare the room for the delivery of the mattress/box spring set tomorrow. eat supper shower - after my shower pre-pare bench for MIL for hers tomorrow if I am able to help her with it read wash dishes and stove
Uhhh this cold is rather severe but at least my throat is better today it's all nasal congestion and runny nose - face hurts today - trying a new medicine. I am very glad I did all the work ahead of time for the bed, now is just DH moving the furniture how he wants it. We are very excited since the mattress we have now is extremely uncomfortable. Very lumpy and not soft or supportive anymore. This is our last night on it. I am really not thinking well. The cold is so ikky. I have a lot to do after the bed comes but hopefully he can help me make it up and everything.
I'm feeling better today. I had a cold that hit me like a train but after 2 days down I'm back up again. Our new mattress/box spring is coming tonight!!!

Saturday -- March 10 Last night our new mattress and box spring set came right on time + it is so heavenly! Our new sheets are delayed - probably will be in Monday so we made due with the mattress protectant cover and 2 flat full sheets just for a few days it will be that much nicer when the new really nice sheets arrive!!!! I was really comfortable and had no back, hip or neck problems -- and DH was extremely comfortable and said I made the best choice (I had worried as he refused to test it in the store!)
ate breakfast in bed DH was in a rare mood cleaned MILs commode pail got dressed took off bedding and applied mattress protectant spray to our new Denver Mattress set + put heat vent plus a fan directed toward it to let it dry for 3+ hours!
