Not Me Monday: Home Sick

I am home sick today. And I am an awesome patient when I am alone and home sick!

I do NOT have to convince myself to stay in bed all day fighting the arguments in my head that there is SOMETHING else I should be doing -- ANYTHING else I should be doing. I do NOT have trouble letting myself sleep when I would rather at least enjoy my day off -- I have NOT been known to put a fun movie on with the screwy logic that as long as I stay in bed, I am still resting... even though the movie is keeping me from sleeping.

Furthermore, I always eat properly when I am home sick. Today, for example, I did NOT eat Twizzlers as my first meal/snack of the day - just because it was within arms length. I always make myself soup and other nourishing food for my ailing body. Like right now, for example, I am not searching my brain for what is pre-made in my kitchen... pre-made and quickly accessible so I can come back to bed asap -- bed where I have Gilmore Girls playing.

Oh, and I sleep on a very tall loft -- 6' in the air lofted... so when I'm sick, I do NOT pull my mattress completely off my bed and onto the floor so that I don't have to climb up and down in my weakened state.

  1. Hope you feel better!

  2. Brooke,

    As one who does what you did, reaching for food in your reach, Twizzlers make for an awesome snack! Mine would be Reese's peanut butter cups right now.

    Here is hoping that you are back to feeling like yourself in no time.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
