hmph

so much for the mini-vacay, now i'm sick!

runny nose & feverish feeling. i thought i was being so sassy by nipping that in the bud, i guess it will take more than a few hours of rest:(

tonight i will lay my head to a movie, eat some soup, echinacea and drink some juice. anything else?

i'm sorry i'm not answering any emails/returning phone calls for a bit... i cannot keep up. i think blogging casts a wider net, but who am i kidding? i know my parents, sister and a few people read at least?

i miss my mom's orange slices with cinnamon when i'm sick. gingerale too. egg in the hole (bread with a hole cut out for the egg) sometimes refered to as peter pan, anyone? i'm homesick for being little and on the brown couch with the afghan that my sister jesse and i used to braid the ends of. mine were always better-more uniform- braids i think. hee. and fighting for space on the cushions... keep your feet offa my side! i miss watching the only 2 movies we owned because we didn't get any good channels! make that 3, didn't we own "ruthless people" too, jesse?

sweet dreams.

I am here and reading! Sorry you are sick...I know that feeling, the only thing to make you feel better is a marathon of My American Cousin, Satisfaction, SuperMan IV and...was is Ruthless People, or was it Outrageous Fortune??? Hmm...and that one episode of Satuday Night Live with Michael Jordan as the host. Oh man!! Get better soon!

I read, I forgot how i found you but there you go.

trashy movies/tv shows + macaroni and cheese is the proven cure for feeling yucky.

aaaawwwwwwww! lame. i thought that you'd beat it for sure. i suggest cups of lemon and honey in hot water with as much cayenne pepper as you can stand. andy thinks it's nasty so gets better just to avoid it, i kinda like it. at least the jackhammers are giving you a break.

oh, and we have lemons and cayenne upstairs (though i think we're almost out of honey) if you need them... i also have a bunch of videos you can borrow - an awesome favorite cartoon called my neighbor totoro, benny and joon, best in show, baron munchausen... all gauranteed to make sitting on bed or couch better!

I always loved toast, grilled cheese and Campbell's chicken noodle soup when I was sick. Feel better soon!!!

I always went to my Gran's when I was sick, and she would make me "feel better baskets". Baskets filled with oranges, assorted art supplies, books, icky water (Nutribitotic, so gross but works miracles for the sore throat) and Pau D'Arco tea.

Hope you feel better soon!
