on the up and up

I was miserable yesterday. Threw up, temperature, slept only an hour or so at a time. However, now I feel much better and I put it down to my miracle lemons. They are so full of good that they are helping me get better. Usually my sinus infections rage for a few days but this one looks like it is abating day by day. I even ate some chicken noodle soup and a honey sandwich today and so far, so good.

I think I kept DH awake with my amazingly loud snoring - I was so stuffed up. After one tremendous snort I scared the cats vertically into the air. It's taken them the morning to forgive me!!

I don't have a temperature and I am on the mend so I ought to go to work tomorrow. Oh but I don't want to. I feel like we three need more rest. I could get away with another day coz I sound like a '3 pack a day builder'. But... that isn't really kind to those that I work with. Or great for the mounting pile of work on my desk.

What would you do?


  1. Aw, sorry you've been under the weather, but glad to hear those lemons are a ray of sunshine in your belly and helping you to mend! about a half-day tomorrow? A compromise between your need for rest and your obligation to your colleagues? Just a thought.

    Hope you're doing much better soon!


  2. Ugh, that does not sound fun! I'm so glad to hear you are feeling better though. Don't go to work tomorrow. Sleep and feel better.

  3. Take the extra day. You'll be SO glad you did.

    Work will ALWAYS be there.

  4. Lemons full of good, what a cozy picture. Glad you're all feeling better. I def. think you three need the rest tomorrow!

  5. Jeeze EB -- I'm glad you're starting to feel better. Seems like you can sometimes work form home, maybe that's a good compromise (work in the AM; nap; work in the PM; sleep). Makes me smile every time I think of you and those baby lemons. With love,
