Aren't they beautiful? They were a very sweet, unnecessary thank you gift. I helped with a baby shower last weekend. Other friends really hosted, but they enlisted me for help because it was a book baby shower!!! Kids' books and parties, two of my favorite things!
And one of my least favorite things? Being sick, duh!
Kansas has been hit hard by the flu. Swell. Lucky for me, I only have a cold.
Colds make me whiny and miserable. I can't imagine what I'd turn into with the flu.
Little Sis went home with her best friend after preschool yesterday. I got to stay in bed. Mommies don't get to stay in bed while sick very often.
There were six clementines in that bowl. Am I the only person who feels the need to constantly eat something when I have a cold? I hate the scratchy throat and drainage and bad taste in my mouth, so I feel this need to snack, all day long. Why can't I be one of those people who lose weight when sick? Resistance is futile. (And why, oh, why did my husband buy those Chips Ahoy knockoffs and leave them on the counter? Why?)
And I know people crave chicken noodle soup with a cold, but I don't eat chicken. Do you know what I want? Garlicky veggie pizza, thick crust. Or maybe Mexican, as spicy as a wimp like me can handle it. (Mexican won out last night.)
Everyone has their advice when you're sick. Most people told me to rush to the doctor and make sure it's not the flu! Tamiflu only works within the first 48 hours! Eh, no fever. Not the flu. Just a cold.
Vitamin C! Zinc!
In the book below, Snuffleupagus has a cold (with fever). Big Bird is going to visit him, but first every single person on Sesame Street has to give him something to take to Snuffy. Some give him remedies. Some send a gift or a treat to cheer Snuffy up. Big Bird just wants to visit his friend! He eventually makes it to Snuffy's house, only to drop the huge stack of gifts.
That's okay. The only gift Snuffy needed was a visit from his best friend, Bird.
That said, I don't want anyone to visit. I want to stay in bed, while magical fairies sweep into my house and clean up everything, top to bottom.
Colds make me so grouchy... so grouchy...
