Sunday Update – February 4, 2018

I have one word for this week: FLU.

First my youngest got it last Friday night. Then my oldest got something similar on Monday morning. Now I have it. Mine started on Friday night with the chills, body aches, a scratchy throat, and fever. Now it’s morphed into a cough, chills and fever, and the beginnings of a sinus infection. I am fighting the sinus infection with my neti pot, per usual, but the cough is so horrid. I hate coughing. Even the prescription strength cough medicine isn’t touching it.

So that’s it for the Sunday Update this week.

Here are some photos to tide you over…

Sick people food in this house is grilled cheese and tomato soup, with slices of apple for me.

I keep these citrus candies in my coffee table drawer.

My brief moment of happiness on Thursday night when my kids were finally mostly well and I celebrated with a blood orange G&T. In hindsight, this was probably a bad idea.

100.7ºF and I went to bed not long after taking this photo.

I was super bored yesterday so I started coloring something new. Really, all I want to do is stare into space.

And that’s about it. There are some things I have to post to the blog this week, but my planner is in the other room and I’m under the electric blanket in bed. So you’ll just have to be surprised. Stay healthy, my friends!
