Sick Face

Sick Potassium and her trusty shark, Gustav!

I apologize for having a weird posting schedule this week. I’ve been trying to fight off this stupid sneaky cold all week. Do you know what I mean when I say sneaky? Let me give you some examples from my week.

  • I felt fine until midnight when I ended up keeping both me and Cobalt awake coughing up a storm. It was pouring rain outside so neither Cobalt nor I wanted to get up and go to the store to get cough medicine. Maybe if I had been coughing earlier (when it wasn’t raining), I could have gone to the store then but noooooo…
  • I went to my soccer game feeling normal but in the middle of the game, the cold attacked and made it hard to breathe.
  • I was walking to the bus stop by way of the library to return a book and I was so out of it from the death cold that I slipped on the grass and ended up face down in my apartment complex’s parking lot… booo…

Anyway, thanks to the little hints this cold keeps dropping, I’ve been trying to take it easy in the evenings this week (minus the day I played soccer) and yesterday I managed to rearrange things in the lab so I could take the afternoon off. I went home and made myself tea and soup before settling into my bed. I got a lot of reading done, which was good because I have a growing pile of books that I am currently in the middle of right now. I’m not quite sure how that happened. Maybe I will write a post about that next week!

So tell me about your week! Or about your favorite things to do when you feel a little under the weather. Doing anything fun this weekend? I am planning some awesome things so come on, cold! It’s time to leave.

  1. Boo! I’m sad you’re sick! If I can find my Get Well Soup recipe among my boxes I’ll send it to you!

    My favorite sick food is saltines with cream cheese on them with some ginger ale. I don’t know where exactly it came from, but it’s what my mom always had for us (aside from the soup!), and it always seemed to taste good when nothing else did. It’s what I still fall back to, and after introducing Geoff to it when he was sick it’s now his favorite go-to as well!

  2. Sorry you are still feeling down. I’ve found that chicken broth with rice and ginger really tastes good when you ahve a cold. Wish I could be there to make it for you. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Tricksy coldses. They always fake you out for a while first, don’t they? “I think I’m getting sick…no, no I’m fine…wait, maybe it is a cold…I think it’s just allergies…okay, I really have a cold.” I hope you feel better soon!

    I’m still recovering from my wedding, so I hope to spend the weekend catching up on Etsy orders and sleeping :D Have fun reading!
