the flu is stupid.

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

honestly. I am OVER this stupid sickness already. I had to call out of work today because the thought of keeping up with the kiddos made me dizzy. Not to mention the constantly runny nose, body aches, hacking cough, or the fact that if I do anything more strenuous than lay on the couch my freaking fever spikes and I become sweaty and useless.

we're working on day 3 and I'm so tired of sitting on this couch that I could scream! Monday night I thought I felt well enough to go to a New Years party. False. I spent the entire evening sitting down drinking water and wishing it was midnight so I could just go home. Then yesterday I thought I'd make use of the holiday off work and get some of the house cleaned up and Christmas put away. I got as far as cleaning the kitchen before I was sweaty, dizzy, and running a fever again. GARBAGE.

Today I have only attempted laundry. So far, so good. I really, REALLY didn't want to take today off work though. I'm already in the negative for PTO. But I can't risk getting worse or getting anyone else sick.

What a way to start the new year!

Guess I haven't exercised - unless it burns calories to blow my nose and cough up a storm. On the plus side all I've eaten is soup for 2 days. Well, soup and grilled cheese. I know. Grilled cheese = massively unhealthy. But it is delicious and all I ever crave when I'm sick is soup and grilled cheese. Also of note, my amazing husband made me smoothies yesterday that were divine. DIVINE. Maybe I can con him into making me anther one today.

Hope you're all feeling better than I am!!!
