Yesterday, I was sick.


I think I like Chelsey’s the best!  Knock a girl when she’s down, why dontcha? ;)  Actually, it WAS hilarious ….I’m all for laughing at irony..and myself!

Let’s just say that I didn’t get a whole lot done yesterday.  And I’m perfectly ok with that.

Instead of writing today’s post during the kid’s naptime – I joined them in on their fun.  Two hours of sleep helped the headache and nausea.  My inbox, not so much.


Instead of teaching Step and Aqua Power – I had to cancel the classes.  :(  What will my adoring students do without me?!?!   Don’t answer that!  I kind of need them to like me!

Instead of vacuuming up the 58 pine needles that fell – I layed on the couch and admired the tree.  THEN, when I couldn’t stand it anymore, I vacuumed.

Instead of eating nutritious meals that would provide me with energy and vitamins and minerals and stuff – I ate air …and tiny bits of the Dark Chocolate M&M’s that Danica sent me.  I feel pretty good today, so I’m thinking there was some science to all that.


Instead of spending my time productively and responding back to your (VERY) sweet comments yesterday – I pinned this giant patio ball:


And these pretty braids:


And this owl made out of coffee:


I also found out that these were the searches that led people to my blog yesterday.


BY FAR, my weirdest search day!  I can’t decide which is best – the “old people drinking” or the “crazy funny sound” one.

Instead of brushing Clara’s hair – I let it look like this all afternoon and night.



I can’t say enough about the merits of keeping your kids out of preschool.  You can let them look like vagabonds and it’s totally ok.  In fact, sometimes EXPECTED!

Instead of cooking dinner – we had Sonic, complete with grilled cheeses and tator tots.  Probably the 2nd time my kids have ever had fast-food.  And I’m perfectly ok with that.  We ate it straight out of the bag.  And we laughed and talked and played with the toys that they gave us.

Instead of wasting time on the internet –  I went to bed at 9pm.  After spooning with Travis for a good 30 minutes.

Like I said, I didn’t get a whole lot done yesterday.  Just all of the important stuff.

QUESTION:  What are your “go-to’s” for comfort when you’re sick?  For me, I need my glasses, a robe, and Love Actually.

  1. Lindsay- I am a lame friend. I didn’t even know you were sick. Poor thing. I hope you’re feeling better. Sorry, yes though, kind of funny that you wrote about throwing up and then got sick. Isn’t that how life works?
    Clara should rock that harido more often. :)
    Hugs friend! So sorry I’ve been a lamo lately about commenting. I need to get back on it. Have a great weekend!

  2. Sounds like a perfect day to me! All of the important things were done. Hope you’re feeling better. We’ve had a sick house this week too! Hopefully we’re on the mends now.

    P.S. PB and Clara are dating in my mind. He doesn’t know it yet, but I’ve found him a wife!

  3. I feel ya! I had a sore throat and a fever yesterday. But thankfully my amazing immune system (and Fatz’s Tuscan Tomato soup) fought it off and I’m feeling great today. *Btdubs your blog is in my blog as a horcrux (7 things I’m super into right now. :)

  4. Getting Clara’s hair to look that awesome definitely qualifies as a productive day :-)
    Also, the dance-off continues. Consider it brung/broughten.

  5. Hope you’re continuously on the upswing!

    When I’m sick, I want a warm blanket, lots of tea, I Love Lucy reruns, and saltine crackers with copious amounts of ginger ale and strawberry flavored dole popsicles. I’m very needy when I’m sick. ;)

  6. i wanted to tell you yesterday but i couldn’t because i got too busy at work but i wanted to tell you that i love you haha

    today i want to tell you that i love you and i think you’re the greatest old drunk i’ve ever known.

  7. I want to snuggle up with Clara under that quilt and let my hair get all ratty, too. That sounds comforting. And I eat sugar when I’m feeling yucky, too. It has healing powers. Hope you are feeling better today!

  8. hey, gotta do watcha gotta do! I can’t believe bonnie got you sick. BONNIE!! haha, just kidding. Hope its moving east and not west. Feel better soon. I think more chocolate and sugar helps.

  9. I needed this post. Sometimes I forget to enjoy my life because I am so wrapped up in what I should be doing and really what I should be doing is enjoying my life. hmmm…

  10. Dark chocolate is packed with antioxidants – obviously that was the miracle cure for you. :) I hate being sick, but I always eat miso soup, lots of water & hot tea, and pound vitamin C. And I definitely stay in my PJs all day! I LOVE those braids – I’m going repin them now and then try to recreate them at some point over vacation at the end of the month!

    So glad you are feeling better now!
