Sick Day(s)

I'm sick.

Stuffy head, sore throat, congestion, a fluctuating temperature, etc and so on. Up until yesterday evening, I thought I was just coming down with a mild cold but since about 8:00pm last night, it's feeling more like the flu.

The nice thing was that I didn't have any kids today. They are in the last week of their winter break and trying to live it up. Mango is visiting his grandparents for a few days and Momo is having a sleepover at a friend's house.

Anyways, with my new found freedom and incapacitation I spent most of the day on the couch and now I am not tired enought to go to sleep.

The problem is...I feel like crap and want to go to bed...

I guess it doesn't help that I just finished crying my brains out (and increasing my nasal congestion) due to watching The Duchess I really enjoy period movies, and I did enjoy the film, but GOD did I cry...Such a sad and tragic story. I recommend the film to anyone who is in the mood for a good cry, some feminist angst and amazing fashion.

Anyhow, I am going to try to go to sleep now...I really want to feel better tomorrow so wish me luck!


  1. Why is it every time I am sick, I have three kids running around? At least you timed it right!

  2. It never fails. Vacations come around and BAM! Here comes the flu! Maybe it's because you finally have a moment to relax and your immune system lets its guard down.

    Oh, and The Dutchess? Awesome film, saddest movie ever. I think Kiera Knightly has a thing for horribly sad roles. Did you see Atonement? Bring Kleenex.

  3. I'm sorry to hear you're so sick. If you're lucky, perhaps it will be the strain of flu that ran through my daughter's family in FL. Everyone got it, but "it" lasted just about 6 hours + 12 hr of sleep to recover. I hope it passes quickly and completely for you. :)


Quit lurking and drop me a comment...Puhleeeeze!
