being sick bites

yes, my friend, being sick TOTALLY bites. i stayed home from work on wednesday with a very sore throat. for me, that usually leads to a knock down, drag out cold. so sure enough, yesterday i felt achy, tired and as the day wore on, i got a lot worse. i did go to work, but headed home early. dave caught a ride home later with a friend and was surprised at how awful i sounded by the time he got home. i HATE this time of year. i HATE being sick. i hate when dave is sick. i hate when my friends are sick. i hate these darn colds. i hate blowing my nose every 30 seconds. i hate having watery eyes and a red, chapped nose and breathing through my mouth…. yuck!

so that’s me today… and likely all weekend. i was supposed to help out in the kitchen today and tomorrow for a church function, but at this rate, it’s not gonna happen…. can you imagine ME working around FOOD with the above complaints? i’d share my germs with far too many people! and tonight is a "reveal" party for our friends (today they find out if they’re having a boy or girl and there’s a party tonight to celebrate) and tomorrow is supposed to be dinner & a movie with friends (i honestly do NOT remember the last time dave and i went to a movie at a movie theater…. LONG time ago…)… and yet i have this *mess.* ugh. i hope i feel better soon. i want to do at least a FEW fun things this weekend.

here’s to a speedy recovery for me.

ETA: i just took a "what flower are you test?" (bear with me – I’m bored). it was kinda hard to answer the questions, but i think the result is pretty much "me."
***You Are a Yellow Flower***

A yellow flower tends to represent joy, friendship, and playfulness.
At times, you are childlike, as a buttercup is.
And at other times, you are fickle, like a dahlia.
And more than you wish, you tend to feel bittersweet, like a marigold.
