Good morning Peeps,
I didn't mention it yesterday because I was hoping it would go away, but I am sick :-( My throat was itchy saturday night, then scratchy yesterday, and now today it feels like something died in it :-( So I took today off from work and have been in bed all morning. I hate sick days.
I have to be very smart about this though. The last scratchy throat turned into three weeks of bronchitis so I am resting my body and trying stop it there. Halloween is coming up and the weekend after I am going to DC for the Food Show (Plan on taking lots of notes for you guys! ps- we are going to see Guy Fieri...would only be better if it was Curtis Stone:-). I got a lot on my plate coming up.
I used to get all excited about getting sick. It was usually good for a quick weight loss, but with every loss there is a gain. Sure I kept it off for a day or two, but as soon as the appetite came back I was making up for lost time. I don't know what it is, but as soon as I feel better the first thing I ever crave is a hamburger. Weird!
Usually when I am sick my diet consists of the three S's: Soup, Sherbert, and Soft-boiled Eggs. As I don't have any of them in stock I am not sure how to handle this. I am not an invalid and can certainly go out to the store, but I would like to just stay inside today. I am hoping this is Fall allergy related and want to just stay inside for the day. It's a good day for movies and napping.
What stinks is that this is a pretty day for a walk at lunch, but I'm not going to do that to myself. If I do anything it may be a little bit of weights (you didn't read this mom) and possibly some abs. That is only if I am feeling better this afternoon though.
I do have a meeting at church tonight, but the rule in school was always "If you stayed home sick, you can't go out that night." If the throat feels better then I will try to make it out in the real world tonight, but I also don't want to get anyone sick. Bah...Darn you germies!
So listen to your body. I believe mine is screaming "SLOW IT DOWN". Fine. I will listen. I'm not gonna like it, but I will listen. Now if you'll excuse me, I think I will put in one of my favorite movies: Bridget Jones' Diary.
