Do you have a routine even for things that are not fun?

I do. I take comfort in routines.

When I'm sick, the first thing I do is put my mattress on the floor. Weird? Maybe, but you'll think its less so when you remember that my bed lofted 6' in the air.

I started this habit in Nashville, and its served me well on all my elevated beds since then.

Migraines, I stay high -- anything else, the mattress has to come down.

Pushing all the fluids, all the Kleenex, trying to regulate temperature with a fever... I have to be on the floor.

Why am I telling you this? My mattress came down tonight.

So far, I just have the nose issues... with a hint of headache, but Chris had the same symptoms 5 days ago and it hit him HARD.

I'm headed to bed with Vicks and Kleenex, on the floor.

What are your weird but comforting habits?

  1. I'm sorry you are sick! I hope it passes soon. I don't really have any routines like that. When I'm sick, I really like wrapping myself up in a lot of blankets and staying super warm. Warmth comforts me.
