Sick as a dog…

12 09 2009

Thanks for all the well wishes, girls. Unfortunately though, I woke up with a fever and about every other flu symptom in the book. I’m not feeling any better, and my mom took my to the doctor’s office. Turns out I have the flu, most likely the swine flu…My symptoms are fever, chills, achy, upset stomach, headache, throat ache…UGH! I cannot remember the last time I was this sick. I’m in our “sick” room aka our guest bedroom. I have my laptop, cell phone, camera, and blankets. I somehow managed to get pictures of some of the food I ate today. I don’t know how! I’ve been in a drunken like state today. I feel like I’m going to pass out every time I get up. One positive thing about today is that post-doctor’s visit my mom got me a Venti Iced Pumpkin Spiced Latte. Oh my…so good! Way to bring in the fall season 😀

starbucks 100_6953 I tried a new (to me!) larabar today! It was the gingersnap and totally reminded me of Christmas/Fall/Winter. So yummy 🙂 100_6956 100_6958 My hunger is pretty much non-existent. Although waffles sound good. Weird! Maybe I can get my mom to whip me up some using the Fiberone Pancake mix…

Hope you like my new blog layout! I updated the bars page as well as the oatmeal page—now making it breakfast. Check it out!

Gotta go before my head gets any worse…

Pumpkin spice and ginger snaps are awesome fall flavors to perk you up a little 🙂

Aww, so sorry to hear that you’re not feeling well! Stupid school and all of its germs! 😉 At least you had your Pumpkin Spice fix to cheer you up. I seriously have the theory that Starbucks has certain magical curing abilities. Haha, I had one on the ride home after my foot surgery (yes, I was doped up on WAY too many drugs, but I DO actually remember telling my mom what I wanted and a few random memories drinking it. ;)) and I honestly think it made me feel THAT much better. 😀

Sick feeling = weak feeling to me that is NOT fun….But little treats along the way, edible or tangible (fuzzy socks) rock. I love women who gratefully embrace nurture!

13 09 2009

Awww, you poor thing. I hope you feel better soon!

13 09 2009

Oh no! Hope you feel better soon!! 🙂

13 09 2009

AHHHHHHHHHH i am so sorry that you are sick love!! headache and fever is one thing…but plus chills AND an upset stomach!? ahhhh

hurray for one good thing- pumpkin lattes. is it just me or is it funny to anyone else to get one ICED?! like a fall flavor in summer form?! regardless they are so delish! hurray


13 09 2009

Oh poor thing… I absolutely, positively and completely HATE being sick… sucks so bad…

Hope you get better soon. (Maybe you can selfmedicate with more lattes and larabars?)

sorry to hear you’re feeling ill – i hope you’re getting nursed by someone at your beck and call 😉

i have to admit that ginger is one of my dislikes although i’m sure larabar could win me round!

hope you start to feel better soon. if not, get some more of those lattes to perk your spirits!

Gosh, Jess, I’m SO sorry to hear this. 😦 I hope you’re feeling your “Wheaties” soon! 😀

The Larabar sounds yummy. My mom can make the best gingersnap cookies EVER but she rarely makes ’em ’cause they’re not the healthiest in the world. LOL

Hi Jess thanks for your comment on my blog. I’m sorry to find your blog when you’re sick, I hope you get better and you keep snug in bed while you’re looked after. I look forward to reading more of your blog when you’re better.

Love Taylor
