I’m Sick. Now What?

Every now and then, I end up getting sick.  More often than not, if I end up going to the doctor, I’m told “It’s a virus, there is no medicine for you.  Take some ibuprophen , drink lots of liquids, blah, blah, blah”

Despite my efforts to relax and rest up yesterday, I ran a fever last night.  This morning, my body is aching, my throat is sore, and my glands are swollen. I am staying home from work (and typing on a borrowed computer).

The good thing about this is, I fully intend on staying in my fuzzy pink robe, my nightshirt  & mismatched socks all day long. 

 Rocco & I watched Regis & Kelly and got to see Michele Obama as their guest.  The Obamas are the coolest couple on the planet.  I don’t ever watch TV unless

 A. I’m home sick

 B. It’s a great comedy special

C. The Jersey Shore or The Bachelor is on (don’t act like you don’t watch those shows! LOL!)

D. It’s football season

So I thoroughly enjoy the rare moments I get to indulge in some talk shows and Food Network goodness.


What are your sick day rituals?

  4. I usually stay in bed and watch TV too. And I try to sleep a lot. Get well soon Mindy! 🙂

  5. I’m home sick too! Been watching the Real Housewives of NYC marathon all day!

  6. Eeks, hope you feel better. The same thing happens to me as well, I go to the doctor, they tell me it’s a virus and I have to wait it out while feeling like death. When I am sick, a hot bath along with chinese delivery with hot and sour soup is a must.

    Hope you feel better stat!! Hope you get some good cuddling time with Rocco!

  7. Kelly always looks SO stinking cute!

    Sick rituals sound a lot like yours – rest on the couch/bed, watch tons of tv or movies and just relax. And soup, I love to have soup. Or popsicles if my throat is sore.

    Get well soon!

  8. Mindy, I hope you feel better. My sick day ritual sounds alot like yours. PJ’s, tv…. laundry probably!
