10 Things I Love Even While Being Sick

Posted on: September 5, 2008

The other night I felt GREAT! Had to sneeze a few times, figured it was just my home telling me it was time to dust. Wrong. I woke up yesterday morning with what appeared to be allergy issues – you know, the typical runny nose, watery/puffy eyes. Wrong again. As the day went on, it got worse and worse and today it appears I’ve turned into this. Yes, that’s my face, me…today. Flu-like symptoms+allergies+ear ache = a not so pleasant me.

So, since I’m in a foul mood and have been the past couple of days, I’m going to try to snap myself out of it, thinking about the things I love…even while sick.

  1. My 14.4lb kitty. He’s been sick and to the vet twice now over the last couple of days with a UTI. This is the 2nd one he’s had in 3 years except this time around I caught it in the beginning stages so his vet visits were not as unpleasant as the last. I love him with all of my heart, but realize it even more during times like these.
  2. My two teenagers. Okay, maybe not so much while being sick. They’ve been great – avoiding me and giving me my sick-space.
  3. Fred. Fred is a little frog who has taken residence in my front yard. We have a routine it seems. Around 9pm each night, he pops up in front of my porch letting me know he’s arrived then hops across the sidewalk into my flowerbed to eat.
  4. The outdoors, regardless of the weather.
  5. Twitter
  6. Humor. Laughter always helps when you’re feeling icky.
  7. Me time.
  8. Hot, steamy showers.
  9. High heels and blue jeans.
  10. Sitting in my big, fluffy recliner in my bedroom watching my cat sunbathe in the window.

Well, I hope you feel better soon. I hate being sick. It stinks. I SSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO agree with the ‘me time’ thinga- ma- jig. I hardly EVER have me time, even when I am sick. Well, get well soon! And don’t feel too bad. I’ve had allergies for a couple of days now, too. But I still got through the 2nd week of school. Good luck! 🙂


Thanks Starheart. I wish it was just allergies, I’d be much better off. I think every woman or man would agree that me-time is very important.

Congrats on making it through your 2nd week while fighting allergies. Hope they go away soon!

Get well soon SB-Angel … Purely because I’ve got work for you to do! Just Kidding! LOL xXx
