This Week

Can Be Summed Up in a Few Words:

Sore Throat.
Queasy Stomach.
And Sleep.

This is pretty much why I haven't *Been* on Blogger really. I'm still not 100% up to par either right now. I've been sick. And on top of that, I had 3 tests too that I had to do while I was sick. It's not real fun. However, I'm on the tail end of it, thank goodness. We went to the WalkIn Clinic finally on Friday and found out it was more than just the common cold. I got a chest and sinus infection. So, I'm on antibiotics and steroids and mucinex and things are starting to clear up now. Yaay!

When one is sick, it almost seems like you are a whole different person and life is completely different. Do you ever feel that way? Like even if you had previous plans or thoughts, sickness shoves it out of the way and puts it on hold. Instead sleep is basically your best friend and you don't have much of an appetite for things and you don't really want to go out and socialize. You are perfectly content with lounging on the couch away from the world, away from facebook, away from blogs, etc. You have so much lack of energy.

One of the perks though, is there really isn't anything better when you're sick than taking a warm shower, watching a movie with your family, and eating Rita's Italian Ice which is basically like a life saver for your poor throat.  Or fruit bars. Oh my goodness, they are amazing.And sometimes it's nice taking a break from the world and just sleeping like a bear in hibernation. Anyways, I AM feeling better than I did the last couple of days and will get back to regular posting and such.
I hope you had an amazing first day of Spring and an awesome weekend!


  1. Awww! I am sorry you have been sick!! No fun! :-( I hope that you get completely well really soon!

  2. Ahh get well Sophie! I've been sick too. I'm getting checked out tomorrow, and I agree, hibernation does wonders for the soul. To be honest I quite like the aspect of straying from responsibilities. No? Just me? Oh well :)

    All the best from a coughing, wheezing friend!
    Much love, Rach xx

  3. I MISSED you!!!!!! My goodness, a whole 4 days with no you, it was lonely on blogger world.
    I'm sorry you were sick:((
    I always find being sick an odd thing, I mean, yeah, feeling like crap is no good, but like you said, everything just gets put on hold, and you don't care about much else but that couch and sleep. it feels weird for sure.
    I'm glad you're feeling better!

  4. Awww.... :(. I figured that your absence from blogger meant you might be sick, I noticed that your daily posts were missing!
    Yes! I felt the same way when I was sick a month ago. It's weird. :)
    Glad you're back, I'd been waiting for a post from you!
