sick day




i got hit with a major bug on sunday, and it is still sticking around. i haven't been this sick in a loooong time. it's completely wiped me out.

so, if anyone needs me i might (but most definitely) will be watching doctor who (thinking of starting homeland or house of cards...are they any good??), drinking lots of tea and emergenC, knitting some pot holders (more on that later), and reading (not gonna lie, i got this book 85% because of the cool typography cover), and sleeping (lots and lots of sleeping).

anyone have any remedies for fever or congestion??? HELP.

  7. Oh no, hope you feel better soon! I find rest the best cure, and warming food, and more rest, so hopefully you will be well in no time. And at least you have that gorgeous book cover to cheer you up!

  9. Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear that you're sick! Can't believe you still took such gorgeous pictures and managed to get them online!!

    Sleep is good, I can recommend Parks & Recreation as the most easy going and funny TV show out there to pass the time! Might be the time to cash in on a free LoveFilm trail!!

    xoxo

  10. Poor thing! I hope you feel better soon. I love to have netflix marathons when I'm sick. I've been thinking of watching all of 30 Rock again so that might be a suggestion or Arrested Development is always good, too.

    P.S. I would also buy that book solely for the cover :)

    1. yes! me too! (oh who am i kidding...i love having netflix marathons even when i'm not sick. haha)

      oh man...30 rock. so ridiculous and yet so funny. (i'm also a big fan of arrested development too...it's quoted in our house at least once a day.)

  11. oh girl - NOOOO that sucks :(
    but I love your pictures!
    vicks is always the best thing for me - I buy those shower tablets that dissolve while you're in the shower and make you feel like you're breathing in menthol and it really opens up your sinuses.
    I hope you're feeling better!

  13. I think the flu is going around. That's what I was hit with the past couple days and it was BRUTAL. I saw someone post something recently on essential oils...I might look into them. I heard they are good for illnesses. Hope you are feeling better!
