feh

Hit by the flu hammer Tues. afternoon. Muscles sore? check. bones throbbing? check. chills alternating with fever? check. headaches and coughing? check and check. I literally stayed in bed all day yesterday. Guess what sucks? Daytime television. Guess what doesn't? A fierce black kitty perching herself on your shoulder (I sleep on my slide) watching for any weaknesses. I'm betting Darthanne saw me as the motherlode catch of the year. Every time I opened my eyes, I'd see two gold ones checking mine for signs of life.

Fortunately the mister is home this week; unfortunately, he doesn't come with a "cleaning mode." I think I'll threaten him with coughing on his toothbrush if he doesn't do the dishes. Folks waiting to hear back from me, I'll be around later, unless I'm crashed out.

Send juice.

And a maid.

~this post brought to you by a need to record the few times I'm sick as proof to the Mister that he needs to CLEAN THE FREAKING HOUSE gaaaaaaah *coughing fit* fleh.

Oh Stoney! **settles you in with an afghan, fresh-squeezed juice, and Bring It On: In It To Win It**

I'm so sorry you're ill!

*leans* You know just what I needed today!! *sad face of far-awayness* This is what I get for being around people this past weekend. I get their secret sick bug!

*wraps you in protective plastic so you don't get it, too*

Oh noes, it was one of the unexpected guests that gave you a bug? Meh to them!

Are you all snuggly and about to go to sleep, or are you restless and wanting to talk on the phone for a little bit? I can call now, if the latter; but if you are all yawning and curling up with DarthAnne, no worries!

let me call you around lunch time. I think I'm going to nod off for a bit - I've got Hope here, too. (She likes to sleep against the laptop as it's all warm and toasty.)

It really, really does. So much for that flu shot I got this fall...

(Thank you.)

That bug is making the rounds here too. The best reason not to cough on your Mister's toothbrush is that you'll have to clean the house AND wait on him because you KNOW how men are when they're sick.

But feel better. Soon. Yes, daytime TV sucks big time.

Hahah, excellent point. Maybe I could threaten to throw away his toys, or something...

If only my external drive wasn't in the office, I could watch BSG on the laptop... Jeez, I'm pathetic. :)

Soup and love with those fun little crackers. It's prescription. Feel better soon, darlin! *frets*

Oh noes, Stoney!! Sick?!? Poor baby, but I'm glad you have Darthanne there to watch over you. Or possibly pray for your death so she can gnaw on your carcass.

I wish I was there to clean your house and fix you soup and bring you juice and tuck you into warm blankets. And watch She's the Man with you because I'm pretty sure that's required viewing when sick. Or on any day that ends with "y".

I hope you feel better soon, sweetheart!

Waaaaaah, come help me. Mr. S is so fired from being a house frau. I mean, he's all good with the kids, and stuff, except he doesn't enforce chores. Or does any himself. Waah.

Don't think I haven't watched our movie twice in 36 hours. Amanda Bynes = good for what ails ya.

Aww, feel better soon, hun! Tell the Mister to get his ass in gear or at least provide you with some nice bedside manners.

*hugs*

Thanks, and YEAH! *points him to your comment*

Doesn't the mister understand how much better you'll feel with a clean kitchen and folded and put away laundry??

Daytime television blows. Try to nap through it.

*hands you a glass of juice*

Feel better soon.
stoney321
Feb. 7th, 2008 06:01 pm (UTC)
He doesn't! But it's TRUE. And are you spying on my house? There is TOTALLY a pile of unfolded laundry on the sofa. I heard him tell The bOy to "pick something out of it" to wear to school today.

*drags self up to standing* Nope. *lays back down*

Hugs. I'd do your dishes for you if I could just pop by. Chris goes into oblivious mode when I'm sick. He'll go to the bar instead of coming home and making me food. He'll let dishes pile up. It's like his everyday courtesy gets lost in his confusion over what to do with a sick me.

Feel better soon, sweetie.

SAL!! *puts on hazmat suit to give you safe hugs* Yeah - it's like they freak out when the normal hum of homelife is disrupted, so they DON'T MAKE THINGS HUM. Bah. Boys.

Thanks, babe! |:*| <-- saran-wrap kiss

Yeah. They pretty much lose the ability to function normally. So we end up taking care of them when they're sick. And taking care of ourselves when we're sick. There's something patently unfair about that.

Hahaha, Sally would only lick him to make him work. SHe fails at being cruel. :D

Hey, you know what was AWESOME last night? Taking a long, hot soak with a bath bomb from Lush, filled with delicious oils that cleared the head. Man, that was a good night's sleep I got, after that tub-time. THANK YOU.

Stoney felled by illness! This cannot be.

(I am coughing again, really badly. People at work are literally running when they see me. I will probably go home soon since I'd rather die in my bed than my office chair.)
stoney321
Feb. 7th, 2008 06:05 pm (UTC)
Dying in an office chair should be against the law! You should be propped up on pillows, a silver tray of tea next to your head, and all of your loved ones clamoring to help you. I'll take a side of that, myself.

(Ack, I'm so sorry to hear you haven't shaken your bug! That's one nasty cold you caught. Hoping you get loads of rest and health, too.)

Ack, the flu is terrible! So sorry you're feeling like such hell.

If it makes you feel any better, I just read that Romney is suspending his campaign, for "our party and our country." Well, he has a point....we're certain to be better off without him. :)
stoney321
Feb. 7th, 2008 06:18 pm (UTC)
If it's any consolation (er... to myself?) I only get sick like... twice a year. But I do it up! *cough*

And did you really just read that?! THAT IS A BALM TO MY ILLS.

*gives you all the bonus points for that tidbit* AWESOME.

I'm sorry you're sick. :(

Does this make you feel better: Mitt Romney just dropped out of the presidential race. \o/
stoney321

Me, too. *sad face x 100* (thank you)

AND YES, YES IT DOES. WHOO *cough* HOOO! :)

You're sick because Jesus hates you.

On the bright side if you die it wont have been for nothing. God takes away with one hand and with the other provides cat food.

Get better soon, you poor sickly creature, you! *pets*

He does, D, he really, really does. Also, I have a refrigerator magnet that says that very thing. Is it weird that my pastor gave it to me? Then forked an evil eye at me?

*wilts onto fainting couch*
*which is better than a feinting couch, because then I'd end up on the floor*

*I'll give you a second for that one*

Mitt wanted to cheer you up today - he dropped out of the race.

No, really I'm not making it up; he's gone.

Feel better, because we're all expecting a party in your journal over this news ;-)

Hahahaha, isn't that terrific news?? The Daily Show last night said it best.

TERRIFIC NEWS ALL AROUND! WHOOO *cough* HOOOO!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
