Yes that’s what the last couple days and today is….no fun! I know nobody enjoys being sick, but I feel like there are people out there that are much better at being sick. I am lucky in the sense that I (knock on wood) don’t get sick very often; maybe once a year. However, that means when I am sick…I’m miserable. I complain. I whine. I just want to lay in bed all day and not do a single thing. Luckily, I have an amazing husband who like me, doesn’t get sick very often, so is the exact same as me when he is sick. It’s a good partnership because we both take such great care of each other when we are sick…and this time, it was my turn to get taken care of!!
And if being sick and cooped up isn’t bad enough, we got dumped on with snow on Saturday! 12″+!!!!! I love *SNOW*. I could play in the snow all the time!!! Unfortunately I haven’t even been outside in 48 hours now. It is currently 50 degrees and the snow is melting fast….I guess I will need to wait until the next snow storm to go sledding and play with Telli in the snow! Telli did have fun with dad in the snow while he snowplowed the driveway!
Look at her cute face covered in snow!! She loves to lick and bite the snow!
On Thursday, the day before I got sick, I downloaded the MapMyFitness app! I love to have apps that show distance, inclines and times. There are so many routes I can take where I live and they all have such a different terrain because I do live in the foothills. Or since, most of my “workouts” are hiking related it’s nice to have an app to show my distance and terrain covered. Since I’ve downloaded it, I haven’t been able to workout once! I’ve been on the couch surrounded by Kleenex and water… I can’t wait to use it!
And now for my favorite things when I am sick………….
My hubby taking wonderful care of me when I am sick! He knows what will make me very happy….Sour Patch Kids are my weakness! 😉
My Telli girl; she makes a great couch snuggle buddy during the day!
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup!
Frozen banana, cocoa, and oats! — That feels great on the throat!
Sleepy-time Chamomile Tea— So soothing and only tastes good when it is steaming hott!!!
And for breakfast this morning, since I was feeling a little better…I made toast with eggs and Avocado!! mmmmm….mmmm..delish!!
And my favorite face lotion of all is also the best cure for a dry nose and lips!
I hope this is my last day sick. I think it’s time for some more chicken noodle soup!!! Yum-Yum!!!
What are your favorite things when you are sick? Are you good at being sick or miserable and whine like me? 😉
God Bless ❤
