I so want to whine and cry on your shoulder right now. I’m sitting hear bundled up in the husbands sweats with a blanket on my shoulders and one of the kid’s winter hats on. I’ve been battling a cough for quite a few days and then last night… BAM… it hit me like a ton of bricks. Fever, chills, congestion, muscle aches, the works.
The husband took me to the doctors this morning and it seems I have bronchitis. Lovely. Just what I needed on my long weekend off with my parents in town.
But even though I could be totally miserable right now I’m TRYING to stay positive. Earlier I camped out on the living room floor and played shoots and ladders with the family, I enjoyed the homemade turkey and orzo soup mom made from the Thanksgiving leftovers and now we are up watching cheesy horror movies with a warm cup of tea.
When people asked, I used to tell them how sick I was. The more I talked about being sick, the worse I got. Finally, I started saying, "I’m getting better." It took a while, but then I started to feel better, too.
I found that quote in The Book of Positive Quotations and I hope a positive attitude helps me make the best of my sick days. I plan on taking it easy, getting lots of sleep and chilling with the family these next few days.
On a side note… My healthy Thanksgiving was a success! I got most of the family out to the turkey trot. We hooked up the Wii fit and had a blast (especially laughing at my piss poor balance). And dinner was FABULOUS! I can’t believe I pulled it off! :)
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
