Oh Food, My Love

I have had a love affair with food my entire life. I don't know why. Ok, well I do know why, psychologically, but that is a story for another day.

But seriously! How in the world do people stay thin when there are so many tasties all around you?

Last month was heavy on cravings for me. I wanted tacos and donuts at the same time.

Last week I was craving green beans. I would cook like half a pound of fresh green beans and eat them all.

Today, I don't want anything at all, because my throat is so freaking sore!

I've been feeling a bit under the weather for a while now. It wasn't too bad, though, until Sunday night, when BAM it hit me hard. It's the same thing Scott had last week. He had been asking if I would amputate his face, and now I know what he meant because my whole face is stuffed with nasties. I'm blowing my nose every five minutes. I ran out of tissues at home; hopefully I will have enough here at work to last the day!

The best part? Life is ironic, and has one mischievous sense of humor. The one week I would like to stay home and rest and get better is the one week when HUNDREDS OF SAMPLES come into the lab and my boss has too much to do to cover my shift when there is that much work. I worked 11 hours yesterday!

So the game plan is:
Take Afrin and Nyquil every night before bed
Take Sudafed and Tylenol and Mucinex all day
Drink lots of water
Eat my cinnamon bears (they're helping to clear my nose, so they're medicinal, right? Right?)
Make Scott do things for me (because he's the best AWESOME husband ever)

If I can just make it through today and tomorrow, then I can sleep all weekend and be totally fresh and bright and chipper for Monday morning!

Ugh. It sucks to be sick. I hope your plan works and you're back to feeling better in no time.
