This is going to sound really strange, but I actually enjoy being sick. Sure, it’s unpleasant, uncomfortable and at times downright painful… but as a mom, when else am I going get to lay in bed all day and get waited on hand and foot!? NEVER.
I do NOT, on the other-hand, enjoy being sick on Christmas, which is exactly what I did yesterday. To make matters worse, my husband was sick too. Thank God my sister was there to watch Gabriel because he was ALL over the place!
But to make amends for missing the last day of Blogmas, I figured today would be as good a day as any to share with you my sick day must haves! So here we go!
- NyQuil – If you can still feel life, you didn’t drink enough.
- Luden’s Cough Drops – They taste like candy, and therefore I eat them like candy.
- Halls in Cherry – Because Luden’s don’t actually do anything to make your throat not hurt.
- Kleenex Tissue with the Vix Vapor Rub in them – it feels nice on the honker which in turn results in a happy nose.
- I can has ALL the lipbalm!
Nurse Me Back to Health:
- Sprite – No, I don’t want 7-up, ginger-ale, mountain-dew or any of that store-brand shit. I want Sprite.
- Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup with Stars in the to-go cups – Is it just me or is this one sooo much less greasy than the original ones that come in the cans!? I love these! And refuse to eat any other type.
- Saltine Crackers – Because duh.
- Banana Baby Food – don’t judge me. It’s delicious. Sometimes I’ll eat bananas instead but only if they are still slightly green. Not toooo green cause then they are too tough, but if they are completely yellow they are too mushy and gross.
Give Me Things to Do:
- YouTube – I discover all sorts of randomness when I’m sick. Plus it’s sometimes soothing just to hear someone talking to you while you fall asleep.
- Lifetime Movies – because if they don’t suck you in, they’ll knock you out.
- Audio-books – All you gen-xers don’t know how lucky you are. In my day we had to actually hold the book up with our poor, weak little sickly arms and do our best to make out the words with our blurry, red little eyes.
