Can't Shake It

My sore throat and cough from last week left me this past weekend only to return, and worse, yesterday. Yes, on the lovely 60 degree day I had the chills and body aches feeling one associates with the flu. I was in bed by 9 and woke up at 3am wondering if it was time to get up. I felt hot then cold. I hoped for not having a fever.

So do any of you get flu shots? I don't, whereas some of my friends live by them. I usually just tough these situations out. But I don't find that I often get sick. Today I feel somewhat better save that sore throat.

In other news: our house is a mess. We have a pine needle trail from the Christmas tree and random stuff strewn here and there. We don't quite feel settled or cozied in our new place yet. My list is set and I know what we need to do, but I've been sick and it's hard to be productive and motivated after working all day. (I know, excuses, excuses.) The TV is so much more inviting, especially when you make chocolate chip cookies from scratch to go along with it.

Did I mention that I'm obsessed with the Food Network? We didn't have that station when we were at our condo (gasp!) and I'm beginning to think I missed out on so much. I was drooling at the tuna salad that Bobby Flay whipped up in his manly kitchen the other day.

I don't even like tuna fish.

Happy Hump Day!

I LOVE food network. It totally wastes hours of my day.

I hope you feel better. I don't get flu shots but mostly becuase I don't really get sick often and I'm lazy. Mostly lazy.

My poor boy is now well versed in all things food network. Although he doesn't seem to mind Giada DeLaurentiis so much...

feel better.

I can't turn on the food network because it literally sucks DAYS of my time away when I do. Also? Please feel better soon!

Sorry you're not feeling well. I don't get flu shots. I don't usually get sick either - not flu-sick.

I love Paula Deen's show on the Food Network.

i don't get a flu shot. i mean there's a chance you can get the flu FROM the shot itself! i'd rather risk it. it's 50/50 right?
