Yes, I do. I have a cold. This one has made it’s rounds through our house, and I am the last to get it. No, I didn’t get the flu shot.
Actually, this cold isn’t the worst one I’ve had (oh, dear, I may have just jinxed myself), but it’s no picnic. As usual, I have stuff to do, and don’t really have time for this cold, so I am politely asking it to go away.
I hope you have enjoyed your brief stay in my head. I ask that you take all of your belongings with you as you leave. As to your question of vacancies in my lungs or chest, I am afraid I will not be able to accommodate you at this time.
Okay, what does that even mean? Are dogs sicker than other animals? I’m not an animal person, so I truly have no idea.
But, yeah, I’m sick with the flu today. It’s an absolutely gorgeous day, and I was actually planning on being outside with the family (which is really a big deal for me because I really enjoy being inside with all the windows open. I justify that is it almost like being outdoors.). But, here I am stuck in bed with the window open wishing I were outside.
Being sick stinks. I really don’t like the stuff you are supposed to eat to make yourself feel better. Can’t stand tea. Blech. But, I got a headache from the flu or the lack of caffeine so I drank a cup. Bananas. Not my favorite, but Tom got me some, so I ate one. Saltines. Mom always has these on hand so she dropped a sleeve by. (My mom really does always have them. In fact, my kids have called them “Nannie Crackers” since they could talk.) Now, I don’t do jello or 7-Up. So, I’ve done what I can. We’ll let the body do the rest.
Being in bed these days isn’t so bad, though. I’ve done a few crossword puzzles and read a book. Even though we don’t have cable, I have the next best thing (or maybe even a better thing)…my laptop. I’ve watched this week’s Grey’s Anatomy and several episodes of Lie to Me on Instant Netflix. I’ve kept up on Facebook, and played a few games. Thanks to Tom for setting it up in our room.
I’ve also thought of a thousand random thoughts that I wondered if I should blog about. But, I decided not to. There wasn’t much to blog about. Just one sentence thoughts. Like, what’s the difference between muffins and cupcakes? Just icing?
Yeah, I think I’ll save you from that.
Have a Blessed Easter!
Karen is home sick again today. With “flu-like symptoms.” No, I don’t know if it is swine flu. Good news is she is feeling much better today.
I found this on the desktop of my laptop.
Note from Karen
I know I always loved when my mom took care of me. I’m glad she taught me well. It’s so nice to be appreciated!
