I have been dealing with some kind of bug all week that has been increasingly causing me to feel really achy, cold, and just REALLY OFF!! I can’t put my finger on it exactly, but what it equates to is that I am just sick (AKA seeeeek)!!! I really HATE being sick, but then again, who likes it??? You see, I am a very needy sickie! My mom spoiled myself and my 4 sisters whenever we would get sick – we would get the princess treatment all day and night until we got better; a special bed made on the couch, we got to hold the remote (something that NEVER happened in my house growing up), we got to eat in the living room, on said couch (which again NEVER EVER happened in the living room), and our mom would basically dote on us and take care of our every need to make sure that we were comfortable enough to recoup!! OH HOW I TOOK THAT FOR GRANTED!!! Nowadays, being a sickie usually means staying home by yourself ALL DAY LONG. No one to tend to your needs, or comforts 24/7. No one to bring you an ice cold glass of 7Up, one of those childhood sickie treats, and no one to make sure that you have warm socks on, or squeeze your toes so you will instantly feel better!! LOL!!! Those were the days!!! AAAAH!! Come to think of it, I am not sure why I wasn’t “Sick” more often as a kid – I could have really lived it up on that scam!! LOL!!!
Anyway, even though I am staying home from work today, I am still going to TRY and get SOMETHING creative done today, ANYTHING! I really don’t want to lose that momentum that I have been working on. I can feel my creativity muscles getting stronger, which has been a nice change! Matter of fact, last night my sis, Alex, and her daughter, V, spent some time in my craft room last night, and we did a couple of projects, which was really quite fun!
It has been kind of rainy/blustery around here, and it has been really getting me longing for a camping trip with my sweetie! Camping is always so good for our marriage, Jason is just one of THE COOLEST people to camp with because he is just so DANG GOOD AT IT!!! Once, early in our marriage, we went camping, and I remember our tent being under this tarp-canopy that Jason had set up for us. It rained SOOOOO HARD ALL WEEKEND!!! The sound was absolutely AMAZING!!! I was so sure that we would somehow wash away, but amazingly we didn’t! I remember being bundled up in comfy sweats, sweater, and Jason’s oversized socks on my feet. It was soooo cold that weekend, that for the most part, I stayed nestled warmly in the tent all weekend, which if you’ve ever camped with Jason and I, know that our tent kind of resembles Jeannie’s bottle, with pillows, and oversized comforters all over the place, on top of an huge air mattress – PURE BLISS!!! I remember that particular weekend hunkering down with a good lust-in-the-dust-book, and both Jason and I either reading, napping, or spending some quality time together just being silly, or talking about our dreams, or simply snuggling to stay warm. Man, I am going to have to get it together and schedule another camping trip for us soon!!! 😉
As for now, I am going to take my sickie self and snuggle back down into bed and see if I can kick this bug’s booty while I sleep!!!
As for the rest of you, have a FABULOUS morning! 😉
