I have the flu

This sad story begins with me waking up and feeling like death. I didn’t have fever, so obviously it is just a sinus infection.

3 hours later, I had some shots for the sinus and ear infections, and I refused the tamiflu. I would rather not take medicine that makes me feel worse than the flu. I would, however, rather eat a lot of these.

With a day off work to be sick and not spread my germs everywhere, what’s a girl to do? Sleep and make things in her blender. This was a lovely mocha milkshake to help my raw throat.

Then it was time to spread some Christmas cheer by singing loudly for all to hear. Frankie wasn’t enthused. He liked it better when I shut up and let the UE Boom spread the cheer.

And after sleeping a few hours, I wanted hot soup. I used some turkey bones from Thanksgiving and my Instant Pot and made a big batch of broth. I loved this stuff. There is a TON of research out there proving what our grandmothers have tried to tell us. Chicken soup (or any bone broth) has healing properties.

It’s been a very rough day. I had originally planned to have tomorrow off as a personal day. I do believe I will be changing that to a sick day. I’ve almost lost the will to conjure up more sarcasm. Times are tough here!
