i was cocky.
oh. the flu is going around? it’s a really bad year for it?
psh. not me.
oh hello, flu.
and then it was 7 days later.
last tuesday, i felt so out of it at work. couldn’t put my finger on it. it was a fever.
that lasted all through wednesday. aches and chills and super light-headed.
i holed up in my parents’ living room with a blanket and ice packs surrounding my head. it honestly didn’t last long. i was excited for the “severe cold” symptoms after that. then it was a couple of days of stuffiness and coughing. friday i left work early. i slept in an upright ball on the couch draped over a pillow, because i coughed when i laid down. by the weekend i had gotten my parents sick [sorry, mom and dad. i love you]. and i was still pretty weak through monday.
today i’m feeling ready for bed, but almost like myself. i slept through the night last night.
whine whine whine, thankfully i’m almost in the clear. so i digress. allow me to recap the decent parts of the week. :-)
coffee with EP and entourage on dvd. my favorite sunday mornings.
i hit 500 miles in the new car!
it was on the way to a pretty cute dinner last night with EP. we went to brio — it was delicious and italian. i accidentally found a location closer to where we were, and nicer for parking and crowdedness.
i’m still liking the 2013 binder. i’m taking a break from sharing this week, and i’ll try to post a week after each spread, instead of hurrying through it and posting the next day. i didn’t know if i would have enough photos, so i’m thinking about a coffee-a-day photo. sounds lame, right? i love it. coffee is usually a given for my mornings [except during the flu], and one of my resolutions was to enjoy every one — at least i like the concept, instead of absently going through my favorite routine. i got the idea from elise’s mile-a-day photos one week.
and i downloaded the afterglow app after seeing it in her project life photos, too. i’m such a little copycat. but i’m digging it right now. [i love every blog and binder with light, retro, almost washed out photos, but i have such a hard time actually doing that to my own photos! i’m working on it. it helps my perfectionism.]
i’ve been reading graceling on my breaks at work, and i’m hooked. me + young adult novels with a great little heroine and a dystopian society? i’m surprised, too. ;-) also, i accidentally read for 2 hours straight after work tonight, forgot to eat or drink anything, and wound up with a tummy ache. it’s been rectified. but that’s slightly insane.
and to bed i go! hoping to get healthy for at least a little while.
