Ugh! I’m sick! Headache, muscle aches, chest congestion, sore throat… I don’t want to complain (okay, I DO want to complain, at least a little!), but it is definitely not fun to be sick!
So, I’ve been laying low for the past few days… sleeping lots, drinking fluids, taking ibuprofen — you know, trying to make myself comfortable (and less cranky)
However, there is an upside to suffering through a few days of misery — that is if you happen to live with a loving partner who wants you to feel better! My hubby has been cooking dinner (his special chili, with the secret ingredient — I believe it’s red wine, but shh!, don’t tell him that I know), fetching me cold and/or hot drinks and bringing me chocolate and other treats! I know — I’m spoiled, right?
This morning, I felt somewhat human, so we thought we would get out the house for a bit, just to “blow the stink off” as he says! We decided to get a bite to eat and wander around the shopping mall (we were running out of cold supplies — especially, chocolate!) We stopped in at David’s Tea to buy some Cream of Earl Grey, Earl’s Garden and Nuts to You. I also spotted the Tea of the Month, which is Organic Super Ginger — the perfect blend to soothe my irksome cold symptoms.
I’ll be back to normal in a couple of days, I’m sure. In the meantime, I am going to try to keep my “crankiness” to a minimum by taking care of myself — getting enough rest and staying hydrated and it’s a good time to catch up on my reading!
Today I am thankful for a bed to sleep in, warm blankets to snuggle in, and a strong immune system to fight through a cold. I am grateful for caring family who administer TLC.
