Sick Days

I had a date with my couch today.

I was supposed to help my hubby put the outdoor lights up today, and then go to a surprise 30th birthday party tonight. After days of dealing with a miserable cold, that just wasn't happening!

I have felt so horrible the past few days, and it was time for a break! So I stayed home all day, and rested.

I never changed out of my pajamas. I soaked in the tub twice. I had soup and tea. I took a nap. I spent most of my day on the couch, playing Super Mario Brothers 3.

Last night, I thought I was going to end up in Urgent Care this weekend. Tonight, I'm feeling a bit better. I could really do without the bad cough, but hopefully that goes away soon.

I'm getting my flu shot early next year! I haven't gotten it yet this year (first time I've put it off), and I've been sick with a severe cold twice now!

Here's hoping my day of rest helped! As of tomorrow, I don't have time to slow down until after Christmas!!!


  1. We hope you feel better soon and we missed you tonight!

  2. I woke up w/ the beginnings of something. I took my oregano oil as soon as I got up though, hopefully that will help. It's like echinacea but stronger, and it usually helps keep whatever it is at bay as long as I take it as soon as I start feeling sick. Maybe that will help you next time? I'm sorry your feeling so lousy!!!

  3. We have that same thing here in our house. Our doctor diagnosed Camden with RSV and said Riley and I probably have it too. It's like a cold, but worse - super congestion, nasty nasty coughs, and fevers. BLECH.

    Feel better soon!

  4. Awww, you poor thing. I hope you're feeling better soon.

  5. hope you are feeling better sucks being sick.. ugh!

  6. Oh no, I hope you get to feeling better soon. I am in the same boat and it's been almost a week. I still feel horrible. Both my kids had it all last week and my son is still not 100%. We've had a change in weather this weekend, so he is back to having a runny nose and rosey cheeks. Ugh!

  7. I hope you feel better soon Stef <3

  8. Glad you were able to rest... at least for a minute! Feel better :)


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
