The Verdict Is In: Being Sick Sucks.

August 29, 2013


Erin Schrader

word to the wise: coffee–not necessarily the smartest choice while sick

Oh well hey blog, long time no talk.
I didn’t intend on being so absent from this space this week, however I didn’t intend to get the most awful case of the flu either. It’s been a long time since I’ve been sick to this extent and let me just tell you–it sucks. Fortunately I was kind enough to pass it along to my husband so we have both been prisoners to the couch and bed for the past several days. Typically I find a small dose of joy in the whole sick thing because lets be real–having to lay on the couch for hours on end doing absolutely nothing can be a little bit nice occasionally. Well after 3 days of this, I’m over it and have no joy left in me about this. There have been several indicators that I am in fact, sick. For starters–alcohol. I haven’t had a drop since Monday evening. Instagram. Haven’t posted a picture in more than 48 hours. Macaroni and cheese. The thought makes me cringe. Complaining. I’ve never done it so much in my life. Turns out I am a horrible sick person. Almost to man level, it’s that bad. I’d be fine with my head didn’t tell me thoughts of “YOU WILL NEVER GET BETTER..MWAHAHAHAHA”.  

I don’t think that it helps that our house is in a constant state of chaos right now with the painting, decor changing, and pieces of furniture randomly sitting in our kitchen. Add on the fact that literally NOTHING gets done when we both can’t move and the cleanliness factor plummets which doesn’t sit well with this already upset stomach of mine. 

Really, life is just great over here right now is what I am trying to say. 

And on that note, I vow to stop complaining about every single thing. Lets just blame it on the lack of electrolytes in my body right now. I’m off to go do lots of exciting things like wash my hair and put a cold towel over my face. Peace out.
