sincerely, the flu
I am sick. I think I mentioned that W got the flu while we were in Portland. I tried to stay away, even to the point of sleeping in the guest bed, but I still managed to get it. I went to bed Monday night feeling like it might be coming and woke up around 4am with my body aching. Tuesday I spent all day in bed in complete pain, going from chills to sweating all day. The fever finally went away yesterday and I was actually able to sit up so I moved to the couch. Today I am on the couch again, still with a sore throat, cough, and cold, but feeling much better than before.
Unfortunately, early this morning I got up because my Nyquil had worn off and I needed more. I took it in the bathroom so I could turn on the light and not wake up W. After taking the medicine, I accidentally knocked over the bottle and spilled a bunch of it all over our carpet (btw, I hate that we have carpet in our master bathroom. I just don't get it. Who thought this was a good idea?) so instead of going back to bed, as my medicine kicked in, I scrubbed my carpet. Not fun. It still isn't all the way out.
But on the bright side, the flowers pictured above are from W - he brought them home yesterday to cheer me up. And he's been taking care of me, and we played Phase 10 in bed the other night when I was too sick to get out of bed but too bored to stay in much longer, so it hasn't been all bad.
I hope no one else is sick today. I'd rather be going out to eat tonight instead of eating soup I can't taste. Hopefully this will be over soon.
