two boxes of kleenex and counting...

phew....have i been under the weather! the weather outside today is a perfect representation of how i've been feeling on the inside for the past week - cold, gray, drizzly...yuk. thankfully a trip to the doc and a few prescription later, i'm on the mend.

here's a few things i've learned from my time spent on the sideline...

i love the lifetime network. they should rename this channel the sick day channel. it rocks when you don't.

i'm the only person i know that loves Reba on lifetime. i admit it, i just love it. laugh out loud love it.

when i'm not at work, life at the library goes on. i work with amazing people who jump right in and keep the ball in play while i'm sitting out. i'm lucky to be on their team.

i love being at home, even if i'm sick. i can't wait til next week. i'll be enjoying a stay-cation...hubby away in canada fishing, me at home. just that.

my husband is probably the hardest working person i know. he busted his butt all weekend long putting in our raised gardens, getting my garden fountain installed, preparing all of my containers for planting while i'm off next week. he never rests. i'll never take for granted how lucky i am to be married to a man who is not afraid of hard work. too many men are. they just don't make men like him anymore.

sleeping on an air mattress is highly under-rated, especially a quality one like mine. i've been banned to the spare room in an attempt to contain my germs. my raft's actually quite comfy.
a bonus to sleeping on "the raft" is that the cats aren't a bother at 4 a.m. i think they're afraid of it:) so they keep to bothering the hubby and leave me to my nyquil induced slumber.

my home made chicken soup is the shizznitz. no one does it better than me. ask my guys.

i can take all the vitamins i want but they won't keep me from catching the common cold, for which there is no cure. and with all the modern day inventions, i still don't understand why that is.

that old show "sybil" starring sybil shephard is hilarious. why did that go off the air so fast? she's one babe who wasn't afraid to poke fun at herself, and i think that makes her even more beautiful.

when you have a cold, nothing beats those "vicks enhanced" kleenex tissues. and target had them on yah!

i really miss writing on my blog. i thought about it often over the past few days but couldnt' muster the energy to have at it. sorry for being so hit and miss about writing. i plan to indulge in bloggery much more often in the weeks to come. my friend melissa has really inspired me with how she keeps her blogger friends posted on what she's up to. i love it. and i LOVE that rain barrel!

so happy day friends, i hope you're all happy and sniffle free. thanks for taking a peek at what's going on with me:)
