Sick Day(s)

So, remember on Wednesday when I mentioned that I had a slight stomach virus

Well, it turns out that a little bit of stomach upset was just the opening salvo. As the day dragged on, I got sicker and sicker until I couldn't breathe through my nose or lift my head off my desk. Around 2 I finally gave it up and went home to spend the rest of the day on the couch emptying my DVR.

Yesterday morning it was even worse, so I didn't come in to work, but instead spent the day in bed sleeping on and off, surrounded by the delightful accessories pictured above. 

And today? I'm at work, but not all that much better. I don't get sick very often, but when I do, I really, really do.

It's fitting, I guess, that since it feels like fall outside and is supposed to feel like winter tomorrow, I have the kind of cold that is usually reserved for the cooler months.

I'll be spending the first half of my Memorial Day weekend resting up and hoping that this cold goes away in time for Sunday's festivities. I'm hosting a grown-up princess party at my house for my best friend's bridal shower, and would hate to spend the entire time sneezing, coughing, and generally making everyone wish that they were somewhere else.


  1. Feel better soon! A grown up princess party sounds *amazing*!

  2. Hope you're feeling better fast!! This weather is the worst. We are hoping for a massive clear up for Sunday too. Enjoy your princess party!!

  3. I hope you're feeling better soon. Don't princesses have magical powers to zap away illness? :-)
