It is not what I was hoping for. My gift for the new year – the FLU!! I cannot remember the last time I had the flu. I get a flu shot every year, well except this year. I went to the doctor today and tested positive for the old booger. I didn’t need a test to figure it out.
Symptoms you have when you know you have the flu:
1. Your skeleton feels like it is made of ice. Yet your outer layer is hot to the touch.
2. This is related to #1. Kids want to know how you can still feel so cold when you are laying in the bed wearing sweatpants, sweatshirt, t-shirt, socks, 4 blankets, 2 quilts and laying on the heating pad.
3.Every part of your body hurts, including but not limited to you ear lobes, fingers, legs, back, eyelids, cheeks – all four, etc.
4. The snot (excuse me being so yucky) coming out of your nose is so hot you could boil pasta with it. I would not recommend that.
5. The muscle spasms in your legs make it look like you are trying to create the next big dance move of 2011. Thank goodness they are all finished up for now.
I could go on but bottom line, next year I will not put off getting my flu shot, I will get it as soon as I can. And by the way, just because you do not make eye contact with people at the pharmacy does not mean they cannot see your overly red (Rudolph like – yes thank you Ms. Pharmacist) sore nose.
I started some little pillows I meant to get up this past weekend on my selling blog. I was only able to stitch the one and I am back in the bed after I finish this post so it wont be getting done tonight. I thought I would give you a little peek. The stitchery design is by Twigs and Sprigs. I added the wool, I thought it added a nice touch.
Well, off to bed for me, I have taken my Tamiflu and Nyquil so hopefully at least my nose will stop dripping long enough for me to get some rest. Have a great night!
