I'm Sick and I Can't Get Up


I'm feeling under the weather. Translate this as, I can't lift my head off the pillow without feeling like a piano has dropped out of the sky and landed on top of me.

I haven't felt great for the last week, but as of Monday it has steadily grown worse. Nothing to worry about, just a touch of some kind of nasty bug, but I've decided to take some time off to recoup. The biggest drag is that this is deadline week for me, so I still have to pretend I'm somewhat coherent and design ads and put the books together this weekend. I'm doing this in bits and pieces as my body allows.

I should be up and about by next week, so until then, I will miss all of you and blogging.

I thought this would be a good day to show you these cute slippers. I just know if I had these on my tootsies I would feel better already.

Sister is taking good care of me though. She even ran out last night to our favorite Chinese takeout and brought me back a big container of Sweet and Sour Soup. For me this has always worked better than Chicken Soup from the deli. Isn't she a sweetheart?

I wonder if I might borrow those slippers? I am awake long enough this afternoon to say that I am sorry you are sick, and that I hope you soon will be in the pink. I am glad your sister is there to bring you soup. My best thoughts and wishes are flying your way this minute. Get better soon my friend.

Love the slippers! I'm wearing pink ones right now, but they have no personality.

Take care of yourself. Hope to hear you're feeling well soon. Prayers coming at you!

Hope you feel better soon. I stayed home sick today and will stay home tomorrow except for going to the doctor. I have this constant upset stomach and not sure why. Blech! Love those cute slippers.

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
