After almost two weeks of sickness (yes, two weeks)…first the non-flu virus (that felt and looked exactly like the flu), following by walking pneumonia…I am ready to be healthy again. I haven't been this sick in a long, long time, and frankly, I'm utterly exhausting. Here are some things that helped me slowly putter through these long, ill-feeling days.
+ My new BFF, lemon-lime Gatorade. We had a love/hate relationship during middle school track, but I'm now a believer again.
+ Holiday catalogs. Hours entertainment perusing the latest holiday decor of Pottery Barn Kids, Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel, among others.
+ Urgent care. Gotta hand to to clinics you can walk in and be serviced right away, no appointment necessary.
+ My amazing husband who has gone above and beyond as Super Dad, assuming every responsibility and more, as I was quarantined to my dungeon (...I mean basement).
+ Yankee Candle "Pantry Spice." While my strong antibiotics have made me nauseous at every consumption, this is one of the few smells that didn't send me reeling.
+ Homemade soup and bread from friends - thank you Liv!
+ My mom, who let me spend the night at her house for a night and took care of me like I was back in elementary school.
Moral of the story: stay healthy out there, pneumonia is no fun!
