random week of consumption.

most of last week and some of this week i have had the flu.
it wasn't too terrible, but i can't stand how it just drains every living bit of energy from my body.
ya, the fever, chills and body aches totally suck, but the fatigue has got to be the worst.
it's amazing the things you consume while sick.
the same things, over and over and over.
for instance..

4 whole boxes consumed...not to mention the 3 more randomly placed around the house at this moment.
...and it MUST be the good stuff with lotion.
i am still blowing my nose every 15 minutes..SERIOUSLY!!!!   WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?????

every day, 3 times a day.  ..ugh.
i had to make a paper schedule because i am so bad about remembering if i took it or not.
and seriously, why can't those people at robitussin make their cough syrup taste like delsylm's grape flavor??
it is the best!
at least sudafed is tiny..i am NOT a pill swallower...i choke and gag most pills back up.
if it's bigger than an advil, i'm in trouble.

tonya got me one of these filtered water bottles for Christmas and i use it so much i bought myself another one.               ( or JCPenney.
i fill it up at least 8 times a day... i think i am officially a H20 girl now
i did cheat with a sprite one day, because let's face it....when your throat is that sore, you just need that burning, tingleing, stinging  feeling on the back of your throat.  (you know what i'm talking about!)

my fav lip balm.
my lips crave this stuff.
there is one in practically every room in our house, not to mention my purse and the car.

cheap pizza.
for some reason, no matter how sick i am, totinos makes it better.
i could really live on this pizza, especially when they were on sale for 95 cents.
the freezer is packed full!

good reading.
at least i have time to dream about living in these places while i'm plastered to the couch.
lots of brain consumption.

evil in disguise.
there's nothing like being crashed on the couch, feeling lousy, when the doorbell rings and a cute little scout drops off colorful boxes of sugar to help you feel better.
yes i know, girl scouts aren't evil...just their cookies.

i am feeling a hundred times better now, thanks to all these miracle workers.
each one played a part in helping me feel better. 
more than some i'm sure.

i accomplished more today, then i have in the last 7 days.
it felt so good to wake up and feel human again.
thank goodness since me and miley are off to texas tomorrow to see tonya, sean and duke.
...and to shop my favorite flea market :)

i got some new shoes for the occasion, or at least that's what i'm telling myself.
have a good weekend...
i'll be back next week.


  1. Sorry you've been sick! Ugh. That is seriously no fun...but Girl Scout Cookies and pizza definitely are!

    And for the record, I think a skating party might be in our future. :)
