I'm sick

And here are my 2 nursemaids.

Glands the size of golf balls, chills, body aches, runny nose, ear ache, sore throat and extremely stiff joints. Started feeling this yesterday after my blustering walk to the mailbox. I never warmed up. Our streets are still iced over so I'm homebound another day and I plan on sleeping most of it. Not how I care to spend these last several days before Christmas. It hurts to turn my head.

Everything I try to eat tastes like rotten butter or sulphur. I can't even stomach my Ginger man cookies. I feel like crumpled up paper.

That sucks! If only everyone had such terrific nursemaids. :-) Hope things turn around by Christmas for you.

You poor thing. I hope Tom is there to make hot tea and chicken broth for you...God bless you and make you well, soon!

P.S. I hope Chumley doesn't get under the covers and bite your legs. I heard a rumor that he's done this to others...

nurse chumley and doctor wrigley look perfectly capable of nursing you back to health.
NOT
Get well soon.

Ick. This sounds like when I had the "real" flu before. I hope that's not what you have. :-(
Hopefully it's just a virus and will go away in a couple of days.
Take care, sleep, drink orange juice, let Wrigs, Chumley (and Tom!) wait on you.... and feel better!

Diva sends (ovary-free) greetings!

Laura, for some reason I HAD to find this post again
(http://tlc-smileygirl.blogspot.com/2008/04/all-over-place-today.html) tonight. When I finally did, I realized it was when I first met you. The photo of the pills has stayed with me; thank you for sharing it on your blog. We read some info about your dad online today, and he sounds like such a colorful character. Sending loving thoughts to you, Tom, Chum, Wrigs and your mom, wherever she is today.
