I’ve spent the past six days with the flu. Body aching, tummy churning, head stuffed up and throbbing. The last time I had the flu was in 2009 when I had the H1N1. This has been a walk in the park compared to that! My Honey came down with this flu about a week before me, our daughter started the same day as me and then our twins got it two days after us. Everyone came home to be cared for by me during the day and we all just laid around, while my Honey cared for us in the evenings by making tea, warming ginger ale, Zarbee’s and loads of soup.
Today I feel human…
I also feel like I lost a week and while I should just be thankful, I’m having a quick little pity party. I struggle with wasted time, accomplishing little.
I’m heading to the chiropractor in a bit because lying in bed has wreaked havoc on my back, arms and sciatic nerve.
SO… I’m thankful that I didn’t miss any work, and I have a husband who loves his family and makes a great nurse and I can just get in my car and get Chiro care. Also, I’m thankful for feeling like a living, breathing human being again, instead of some walking dead girl.
