siiiiiiiick.

took a day off of work today, which i never do. slept all day and still exhausted. sent the boyfriend to the cvs to pick up the kind of cold medicine where they don’t put the boxes on the shelf- only pictures of the boxes. don’t they know i’m too sick right now to try and make meth?

anyway, after a day of shaking and drooling on my couch, i had promised a dear friend i would host an engagement party for her. which actually turned out really amazing… except for the part where it’s 2 am now, i’m like 3 mimosas in the bag (vitamin c!), and i have to do a polar dip in like 9 hours. oh, and i still kinda feel like death. fuck.

but i’m trying to write SOMETHING every day. although maybe i should just get my own yelling bird to fill in when i’m a wreck (which lately is often).

Hmm, I don’t know! I’m going to try and get my other blog going again, but it’s hard when my toddler wants to pound on my keyboard everytime I open my laptop… Nice to be missed though! And we should hang out sometime. I thought of you recently when I went to a burlesque class.

Maybe a dip in freezing water will shock the sickness out of you…

I am still sick too wheras my wonderful husband who got sick the same day I did is perfectly fine. Damn him and his working immune system. When I wake up in the morning I literally sound like one of those people who smoked for 50 years and have to talk with an electronic thing held up to their throats.

Good luck at the polar dip!

i’ve had the crazy smoker’s voice for like 3 days. yesterday, i had to sing! it was TRAGIC. i actually feel really bad that my boyfriend is now trying to get sick. however, many days of waiting on him as penance await me.

Wow, I completely relate to this post. Also sick, took a RARE day off from work, shaking, coughing, drooling. Tried the mimosas (was bowling All Stars night and couldn’t do beer, or sober) Not attempting a polar dip, though. You’re crazy! Will be at Joycott today, then maybe back to the couch. Feel better!

this cold is BALLS. it’s been 4 days and i still feel like super-ass. mimosas helped, but i’m not sure that polar dipping did. how did joycott go? feel better yourself!

I’m sick, too. When I read your post and how you are doing a polar dip, I felt sicker. brrrrrrrr…. I give you lots of credit because that’s something I will never do. Good luck to you and make sure to have very warm blankets ready for you to cozy up in after your (totally insane) deep freeze dip. Me… I’ll be thinking of you from under a few layers of fleece!

bummer! i feel like everyone has either this sucky cold, or the vomit flu. truth be told, i think we got the better deal. well, except for the hacking up a lung portion that i seem to be launching into the last couple of days. definitely the fleece cocoon is the best course of action. sorry your family is being so unsupportive! you should turn off everyone’s phones until they learn to give you the full florence nightingale treatment that you deserve.

P.S. Love the picture you posted. Figures it’s a man whose sick and is getting all the attention. Why can’t I get that kind of attention when I’m sick? From anyone, even! I’m lucky if I can get one of my darling daughters to get me a glass of water. God forbid one of them has to actual get UP and walk twenty steps to the kitchen and then to wherever I am in the house. Took 1/2 hour for one of them to finally hear me calling…. I’ll call my daughter on her cell phone next time because she always has it with her. She’ll probably hang up on me.

Totally relate to this post. I also took a RARE day off work, shaking and drooling on the couch. Tried the Mimosas on bowling night because I couldn’t do beer or sober. Finally feeling somewhat human again, and breathing through both nostrils. Hope you feel better soon!
