I'd say you need a little more couch time! The part about you not remembering a do-nothing afternoon on the couch. You'd better work on that! If there's one thing I allow myself, it's downtime. Probably too much sometimes. My body gets worn out and ragged and I rest it. When I don't, I get sick.
I hope you are feeling well soon.

These are great! Sorry to hear you're under the weather though :-(

Thanks for the well-wishes...I do need more couch time, you're right--I love my couch, too. Maybe I'll work on that this afternoon!

Oh, poor you!
Being sick is a great time to break out favorite movies, and to watch them all snuggled together on the couch, to throw tea parties for the kids with the fancy tea cups (thus giving yourself a change to drink many cups of life-giving tea, and keeping them busy for ages), to haul out the toy doctor set and suggest that they give their poor ailing mother a checkup.
Get better!

I love the tea party idea, beck--thanks! And snuggling up with a movie sounds great to me right about now!

I hope you feel better. Care to share your recipe for hot and sour soup?
