I have a wicked cold. So basically my Saturday looked like this, but with the pile of tissues mounting by the hour and with the added soundtrack of sneezing and whining - I rarely get sick and when I do I get vocally bitter about how it slows me down.
Sadly (and disrespectfully, in my opinion), the rest of the world doesn't stop when I feel out of sorts, so in addition to congestion, I'm dealing with a combination of various family crises and minor problems and a crazy work week, and I'm tapped out. Needless to say, cooking and crafting and general good life type things are in short supply at the moment. There are two weeks worth of CSA produce backed up in my fridge. I ate an apple for dinner because heating up a frozen veggie burger sounded way too complicated.
I'm taking at least a couple days (possibly a week) off here to deal with real life. And then I'll be back, amped up for fall and hopefully sniffle free.
At least your sense of humor doesn't disappear! I always feel like the world is ending when I'm sick too. Hope you feel better asap!ReplyDelete
wishing you a pot full of warm soup!ReplyDelete
You sound like I felt week before last. Take care of yourself - I've finally realized that it's necessary to stop, even when the world doesn't, and focus on me first. Hope you feel better soon!ReplyDelete

Feel better! This ran thru our house last week, but we are feeling good now! Lots of liquids and rest for you! xxoo :)ReplyDelete

Feel better, dear lady! I wish you many naps.ReplyDelete
i'm sick too and feel the SAME way. i've noticed dayquil/nyquil really helps along with drinking a coldbuster from jamba juice. and pho! get better soon! xoReplyDelete
I hope you get better soon! I am whiny too when I'm sick. And now that I am out of home and can't whine at my mum Corey bears the brunt of all of it. He is really good but. He always makes me vegemite on toast and cups of tea.ReplyDelete
Oh Rachel, get well soon! Take care of yourself xxReplyDelete
(hard to get amped up for fall when it's NINETY FUCKING DEGREES outside, no?)ReplyDelete

:( Sorry you've got a bug... I hope you can get some rest and feel better soon!ReplyDelete
Take care of yourself and rest up! Feel better soon!ReplyDelete
yeesh. seems like the story of my life. I kind of just want to stay home a couple of days and recharge, but the Plasmodiums needs me! Sigh.ReplyDelete
Face itching, eyes hurting and head feels like it's stuffed with cotton. I'm right there with ya.ReplyDelete
Haven't had a cold in like three years, so this sucks. I'm oddly glad though, to see someone else reacting pretty much like myself when I'm sick.
Hope you'll be getting better soon!
Oh dear! I know the feeling! Hang in there and be very, very kind and gracious with yourself :)ReplyDelete
<3 aww. i hope you feel better. real world is so pesky when you are sikc. :(ReplyDelete
It IS rather disrespectful of the world to continue turning when we are sick, isn't it? haha! Well, hope you feel better soon! It seems everyone is sick recently...hopefully I can dodge whatever's going around!ReplyDelete
Get better soon. And maybe switch off your phone for a week.ReplyDelete

please pick up some of that reserved-for-emergencies tapioca from whole foods that your beautiful girlfriend so desires when conditions are less than ideal. i'd do it myself but i'm way far away. you're the best.
(feel better, woman! xoxo!)
Aww, Rachel, I hope you're feeling better! Crises are bad enough on their own, but crises while sick are just the worst. I hope this week is a marked improvement from last week.ReplyDelete
