Sick Day #2

by jessica on February 16, 2012

I thought I was going to make it to work this morning. Last night I packed a lunch and laid out my clothes. I tried. I really did. Can I have an A for effort? Please? Thank you.

After having a semi-conscious conversation with a coworker about being on my deathbed, I took a double dose of theraflu and passed out til noon.

My snuggle buddy this morning

I woke up feeling better. It was a miracle. Don’t get me wrong I’m still all stuffy and gross, but I’m not dying. The sore throat is officially gone. Yipee.


My goal for today other than get as much work done as possible?

Eat as normal as possible. My theory – if I eat real food, my body will be able to fight this cold better. I interpreted that as peanut butter cheerios for brunch (let’s not even pretend that breakfast at 12:30 is breakfast). While ferociously working this afternoon I snacked on an apple & pb and some cheese & crackers.

I also had several giant cups of tea. I’ve been told tea cures everything. The guy that told me is pretty smart so I decided to trust him and drink up.


Perfect late afternoon snack



Proof that I’m still sick – I could hardly taste the garlic


Proof that I am feeling better – I ate about four oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. My mom was baking up a storm this afternoon and the house smelled amazing!


My lifesavers these past two days

Tomorrow I am going to work even if it kills me.
