Sick as a Dog
Is there anything less interesting than hearing someone talk about how sick they are? Indulge me for just a second. I have been sick for the last three weeks. Two weeks of a nasty cold. Then after a friend gave me a Z Pack, I made a quick recovery for a weekend trip to Arizona. Then I came home and promptly came down with the flu.
In this season of gratitude, I am grateful for AMAZING friends and family who have taken care of me. I have had the following over the last 48 hrs:
7 layer dip and chips dropped off
Lunch from Corner Bakery with a huge Diet Coke (delivered by Corner bakery themselves!)
A blessing from my dad
A box of Andes mint cookies (I was even able to suck these down despite my extremely sore throat)
Another huge Diet Coke today on my doorstep
A friend going to the pharmacy to get my prescription.
You would think I was on my death bed. I feel very loved.
My mom came and got my kids this morning and I didn't see them all day..The greatest gift of all.
In other news, I read this book and it is the funniest thing I have ever read. (Even funnier than Bossypants!) I may or may not be giving it to all my friends for Christmas. Please, do yourself a favor and get your hands on a copy:
