Dear Mr. Loerke, yesterday I woke you up at 4am so you could keep me company while I sat on the toilet and held a trash can. One word : YOUDESERVEADOZENCUPCAKES Dear Flannel Sheets, I think you're almost as magical as keeping down a cold Bundaberg and package of graham crackers. Thanks for making a day in the biscuit as comfortable as an oversized hoodie. Dear Heartland Table, even though we don't have a TV you were the perfect show to watch online in between naps and trips to the bathroom. Gotta love a cooking show hosted by a midwest girl who shares recipes inside her log cabin. Dear Timothy James, bet it won't be long before you get invaded by body aches and belly rumbles. I'll hold your hair back in exchange for a cupcake.

Sorry to be so silent on the blog this past week! We ended up taking a trip to Asheville after I returned home from Colorado. You were missed! Btw, what are your sick day must haves? When I was little my mom used to buy me a sketch book and a brand new box of colored pencils. It instantly made me feel better.

Being sick is the worst... feel better! Open the window a crack to get some fresh air and maybe listen to an audio book so you don't tire your eyes by reading/watching. I remember my mom making me a nest on our old leather couch, bringing me an endless supply of Sprite and saltine crackers. All with a side of children's books.

PS. Not going to lie, sincerely missed your posts. Hope you had a wonderful trip!

Hey Em - sorry to hear that. But you are in good company - also sick at home since two days... and missed your blog.
Tea, a big warm blanket, fresh sheets, a warm scarf, some tv series..and good sleep!

My Mom always made me a 'tent' in the living room when I was sick.

This is one of my favorite things to ask people when I meet them, their sick/bad day must haves. Mine are candy canes, potato soup, and Mary Poppins. Feel better soon! Sending prayers for improved health your way.

Hope you feel better soon. Sick day favs... An oversized blanket, the recliner, a cup of tea and Netflix.

sick days are the worst! but nothing feels as good as the first day that you're feeling better....like a brand new version of yourself. sick day must haves for me are a uniform of yoga pants, fuzzy socks, and my old hoodie, and endless supplies of green tea.

feel better soon!

So sorry Em! Being sick is the worst!! We missed you but glad you got to travel. Please feel better soon!

My must haves are like the previous comments...a nest of old quilts, my favorite movies, ginger ale and my moms tradional tomato soup with pasta.

Take care and best of luck Tim!

Oh no! At least your getting it out of the way - being sick for the holidays is the WORST.

All I need when sick is a heated blanket, bucketloads of sprite, and David Attenborough on the iPad. Having my man near to dote on me is an added bonus. :)

Feel better soon! x

I always tell my husband that flannel sheets feel like I'm being hugged by lambs while angels' wings softly beat against my cheek.

When I was little my big sister would stay home with me and I had 7up and toast with cheese melted and we would watch Full House and Cuddle - i'm now 27 and she's 34 and still when one of us is sick that's all we want to do. Since we're far apart my fiancee has taken over and brings me gatorade, makes me soup and we watch USA shows. Feel better!!

Mere said...

Sorry that you're sick! Prayers for a speedy recovery.

My sick days always included Wizard of Oz... I would be asleep by the time Dorothy landed in Munchkinland! That movie always makes me feel better. Random, right?!

My mom always made a "tea" by mixing cherry jello and hot water. Stops vomiting immediately and gives you a much needed delicious hot drink and a little burst of life. Hope you are better!

My Grandma Mary used to let us watch television in Her chair when we were sick. This delicacy was paired with Keebler Club crackers and 7 up! :) I crave them each time I am sick!

Leave it to beaver and Little House on the Prarie.
And a milkshake from McDonalds.
They cure everything.

We just put on our flannel sheets and they are great, especially with the windows open. I think what makes me feel best when sick is what reminds me of being taken care of at home--tomato soup, apple juice, blankets and heating pads, daytime tv, tea and snuggles on the couch.

Hoping you're feeling better, sweet Em. Been up since 3:30 this morning feeling ill myself, and you've been such good company. Thanks, friend!
