13 Things About Having The Flu


As some of you know, I have had the flu since Friday. I think I’m finally on the upswing, but damn! This stuff is killer! So, here are 13 things about this week of the flu.

1. Since my voice is so hoarse I can’t yell at the children.

2. They usually don’t listen to me anyway, but now they can pretend they don’t hear me.

3. I haven’t had the energy to do anything, especially cook, so my husband keeps bringing home dinner.

4. Unfortunately, since I have the flu, so I don’t want to eat anything.

5. I’ve lost weight. (woo hoo)

6. I also haven’t had the energy to clean the house.

7. I hate to clean the house, but at least now I have a good excuse not to do it.

8. The kind doctor gave me cough syrup with codeine for my cough.

9. You shouldn’t take this stuff before getting in the shower because you may not be able to stand for very long.

10. I get to “accidentally” cough on people I don’t like.

11. Your children have no sympathy for you when you are sick.

12. Even at 3:30 a.m.

13. Codeine is not enough to keep you asleep when someone is screaming, “MAMA!” at 3:30 a.m.

You poor thing, well expect for the cough syrup. Get better. I'm telling you that one day you will laugh when they are complaining about their kids. That's what I do. Have a great TT and Valentine's Day. :)

I love number 10! Thanks for giving me that one. If I happen to catch the flu, I shall use it to the utmost benefit.

Love that list. Hope you are feeling better. I don't want to catch the flu... I've been washing my hands like a maniac and staying home.
#13 is my favorite...

Oh, you poor dear. I hope you feel better soon. I have something, but they tested me for the flu (THAT was horrible) and that is not what it is. Trouble with being pregnant...you can't take shit. :( So, I'm completely miserable.

Aww,the flu SUCKS! I hope you feel better soon! Although, #5 and 10 are reason enough to have it a bit longer! haha

Well, you know me... I would have given the cough syrup to the kids so I could've slept thru past 3:30am...
And the world sighs a collective sigh of relieve that I have no children...

Hope you feel better soon!
