When I Feel Sickly

I want these things, pronto:

Anna gave me some amazing bath stuff for my birthday. Last night, I came home and took a long, luxurious pink glittery bubble bath, and I plan to do the same thing today after work.


Veggie soup. If I can muster the energy, I'm gonna go home and make a pot.



And this guy to nurse me back to health:

Tim Riggins, duh

Other things I want when I'm sick include but are not limited to: frozen yogurt, my mama, my Oakland A's snuggie, Emergen-C, and for everyone to be exceptionally sweet to me. :)

I'm hoping that a combination of these things will work for me today. Sleep deprivation has turned into aches, a sore throat, a slight cough, a foggy head, and general BLAHness. Fortunately my students have been on their (mostly) best behavior so far. Let's hope they keep it up . . . at least until I'm back to my healthy, energetic self!

What do you want when you're sick?

So sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. Yuck. I always want warm buttered toast, clean sheets and a foot rub. Shall I send Tim Riggins over for yours?

Sounds like the perfect cure :) Like you I always want my mama when I'm sick! Right before I got married Philip and I both got really sick (we got married in Feb. so it was during the winter cold we experience in Texas) and my mom literally had to come over our house and take care of the both of us! She had a wash cloth on both our heads haha Moms always make everything better! I'll send Tim Riggins over your way asap :) Feel better darling!! We're halfway through the work week! :)

Oh friend. I hope you feel better soon.

When I'm sick I want homemade chicken soup, my bed and sometimes my mom if she's not dancing on my last nerve. Oh, and dark chocolate and OJ...it's my signal that sickville is coming on.

Take care. Did a kid sneeze on you?

xoxo,
Carrie

Hope you feel better!! I am with you on the baths, bed, fro yo, and mama! I also crave hot cocoa, which is even better when mom makes it. :)

I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I'm a freak when I'm sick - I want to lock myself up and cut myself off from the rest of the world with tissues, ginger ale and crackers, and not come out till I'm 100%. But... I'm a mom and the world unfortunately goes on when I'm sick, as do my responsibilities (I say this with a bitter twinge, even though I love being one). Anyways, I saw your photo of the bubble bath in my blogroll and at first glance thought it was someone pouring water into a belly button (an inny, of course).

I hope you got all of the wonderful goodness you wanted and deserved today (since it's still summer, you can make a gazpacho instead of veggie soup, unless you're craving something warm).

Feel better!

Cynthia said...

being sick is the worst and what I do is try to get as much sleep as I can and eat only comfort foods! hope you feel better!!

Micaela said...

awww sweet claire i hope you're feeling better! I like your thinking when feeling crummy... i need my momma too!!! did marianne tell you about when her and philip were BOTH sick with fevers and my momma went over there and put cold washcloths on their foreheads and gave them meds?! LOL no joke! (and i just read she wrote about this in her comment so you KNOW i can't make this up! ha)

You are SO cute about your fantasy football stud ;) i love it!

i sleep and sleep when i'm sick... and cry ha! i'm such a wuss. watching a good movie and NOT getting out of my pjs. Sending my healthy vibes your way. xoxo

Clairey my friend did you see the Dutzi bag post? I thought of you immediately when Ariane and I were talking. She's doing so much to empower Mayan women by teaching them to make those bags...might you be interested?

xoxo,
Carrie

Katastrophic said...

When I'm sick, I just want food and tv. Actually, I am often like that.

Krystal said...

FEEL BETTER!!!
and yes, I am loving Henry and June - I love the way she writes, it's so impressive - her ability for self reflection/knowing herself makes me incredibly jealous =) I am having Mark bring the dvd back for me!!

Melanie's Randomness said...

Hi Sweetness,

I hope you feel better soon! Baths and bed are the best things for you, of course. And hot honey drinks for your throat. I also love fruit smoothies when I'm sick and it's not freezing in the house. Movies in bed are nice too. and someone to take care of you. Take good care of you...

Missing you lots! In a weird stroke of email consolidation, I ended up reading a bunch of our notes back and forth to each other circa 2008-9. I feel like I've forgotten how to communicate with my voice though. I'm so far.

i hope you feel better soon!!

let's see, I like to lay on the couch with my fuzzy white blanket and i usually watch reruns of i love lucy and the brady bunch. i love a hot toddy when i'm sick, if the boyfriend let's me.., and toast...lots and lots of toast with butter and jelly...mmmm

MyLittlePhotographs said...

yes, yes and yes. I agree with all of these especially the bubble bath and veggie soup (yum!)

Café Bellini said...

Oh no, I hope you feel better soon!

Gracie said...

Feel better! I think all the things you are doing should help. And maybe you should pamper yourself just a little bit more.

I definitely like blankets, movies and being served dinner :p when I'm sick.

Leesh said...

When I am sick, I just want my bed and to be left alone...although just like you, I wouldn't mind Tim Riggins nursing me back to health

Heather Taylor said...

I'm the same way. I just want to sleep forever and forget about the world until I feel better. I hope you get well soon!
