The Verdict Is In: Being Sick Sucks.

word to the wise: coffee--not necessarily the smartest choice while sick

Oh well hey blog, long time no talk.
I didn't intend on being so absent from this space this week, however I didn't intend to get the most awful case of the flu either. It's been a long time since I've been sick to this extent and let me just tell you--it sucks. Fortunately I was kind enough to pass it along to my husband so we have both been prisoners to the couch and bed for the past several days. Typically I find a small dose of joy in the whole sick thing because lets be real--having to lay on the couch for hours on end doing absolutely nothing can be a little bit nice occasionally. Well after 3 days of this, I'm over it and have no joy left in me about this. There have been several indicators that I am in fact, sick. For starters--alcohol. I haven't had a drop since Monday evening. Instagram. Haven't posted a picture in more than 48 hours. Macaroni and cheese. The thought makes me cringe. Complaining. I've never done it so much in my life. Turns out I am a horrible sick person. Almost to man level, it's that bad. I'd be fine with my head didn't tell me thoughts of "YOU WILL NEVER GET BETTER..MWAHAHAHAHA".  

I don't think that it helps that our house is in a constant state of chaos right now with the painting, decor changing, and pieces of furniture randomly sitting in our kitchen. Add on the fact that literally NOTHING gets done when we both can't move and the cleanliness factor plummets which doesn't sit well with this already upset stomach of mine. 

Really, life is just great over here right now is what I am trying to say. 

And on that note, I vow to stop complaining about every single thing. Lets just blame it on the lack of electrolytes in my body right now. I'm off to go do lots of exciting things like wash my hair and put a cold towel over my face. Peace out.

  1. Booo, feel better! I am sick today too, though I'm not sure if it's the flu or some weird allergy-related thing...anyway, cheers (I'm holding up tea, not booze, sadly...)

  3. I hope you get better soon!! It's pretty much impossible to be almost to "man level" isn't it? Even my kids aren't as needy when they are sick!

  5. Oh no feel better!! I am the same way when I am sick, I am almost as bad as a man and I am always 100% convinced I will never get better which leads to some very unnecessary dramatic break downs...whoops!

  6. Being sick can be fun for maybe 20 minutes. That's as long as my sickness attention span lasts! Hope you feel better soon!

  9. We've been sick this week too. Unfortunately, it was my toddler who gave me this sickness, and I was still forced to be a mom through it all!

  13. Poor Erin. Being a little sick is ok -- just like a work freebie. But being THAT sick... well, I'd think we'd all rather just go to work!

    Feel better soon friend! :)

  14. It sucks to be sick, and it's even worse when you have too much going on (which seems to be the only time we always get sick). Get better soon!!

  20. Get better soon!
    Find some awesome friend or relative and ask them nicely to make you some chicken soup. Dig out a huge snuggly blanket. Download a lengthy tv series. Plonk your butts down on the couch, wrap up in said blanket, slowly devour chicken soup.

    If that fails - seek chocolate!
