Prescription For Comfort

Day 3 of "The Cold."

Update.... I am getting better. I can breathe a little easier and I am slowly weening myself away from the tissue box. ( NOTE TO SELF: Splurge and buy a box of tissues with Aloe lotion in them. Your nose will thank you.)

This morning my husband placed money on the table and I said " What is that for?" He replied " We are almost out of cream for coffee." I said " I'm getting better, but I'm NOT better. I don't plan on leaving this house today. I suggest you go to the store on your way home."

Did that sound bitchy? I didn't mean it to sound bitchy. Being sick can bring out my short fuse. I'm sorry honey.

Tonight, I even plan to cook for my family. They will be very glad to hear that. Last night my husband had a frozen turkey pot pie and my little one consumed good old "Chef Boyardee."

My family. What would they do without me? Then again, what would I do without them? They are the ONE THING that brings me comfort when I'm sick. Even more so than a box of soft tissues. But that is a VERY close second.

I'm interested in knowing....
When you are sick, what is the ONE THING that brings you comfort?

Aloe lotion Kleenix is a GOD SEND!

I love being babied, but no one will do it, so I guess just knowing that I'll feel better pretty soon keeps me going!

Rubbing your poor achy sick shoulders....but with rubber gloves and a mask on. I don't want your cooties!!! -B
