First of all, I want to thank all of you for your comments of well wishes. Knowing that I am not alone in letting my house fall apart on occasion is truly comforting : )
I am still writing to you from the confines of my bed, but I am feeling a little better. I have actually been able to get out of the bed today and do some much needed laundry - which means my family no longer has to run around in dirty socks and underwear - for this I am sure they are eternally grateful.
Even though I believe I am on the up-and-up to recovery, my throat is still very swollen, so much so that the simple act of swallowing is right next to impossible; but even in that I have found a silver lining: I have thus far kept one of my New Year's resolutions in that I have not gained anymore weight - three days of not eating tends to do that to a person. I'm just glad I was able to finish off my Praline cookies before this illness set in or I seriously would have been even worse off than I am now (lol).
So what does one do while they are sick and laid-up in bed? Sleep for sure. But I have also watched my favorite movie "Pride and Prejudice" (the one with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen) at least three times - one, because I am too lazy to get up and go pick out another movie; and two, it just does my soul good to see Mr. Darcy come walking through the morning fog towards Miss Elizabeth so that he can profess his undying love and devotion to her for yet a second time. I'm a sappy romantic like that. So sue me. : )
So what do you all do to occupy your time when you are sick? Is there a favorite movie you enjoy watching or a book you always turn to? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated seeing as how I am starting to go just a little stir-crazy (lol).
