Sick day. Don’t stare.

My sickness hit me like a ton of bricks last night… I hate when I get sick. It isn’t fair to my kids, co-workers, husband or family. I did everyone a favor and stayed home all day. Well, besides my kids.

Taking a day off isn’t easy for me, but I know it was the smart thing to do. Sometimes you just have to listen to your body.

Luckily, it isn’t my stomach, just my throat, ears, aches and an epic fever.

This morning, when I finally got out of bed at noon. Yea. Seriously, noon.

I made some warm oats. I added, egg whites, strawberries, flax seeds, chia seeds and a little cool greek yogurt.

Other than that, I’m now a chain sucker.

Pretty sure these are doing nothing, but they taste good.

I even gargled and swallowed some essential oils mixed in water. I used a few drops of on-guard, thyme and lemon.

Also don’t think it helped at all. I’m not an essential oil guru.. I pretty much made that combo up. Anyone know what would help? But I actually only have those three oils. Ha!

I helped Tanner count eggs.. I used one and he got pretty mad at me. Oops. Don’t mess with that kids eggs.

Bee spent most of the day painting. She is such a arts and crafts kind of girl.

That smile kills me.

I just had a cold xocai shake, hoping some of the antioxidants will help kick this.

When Brent got home he took the kids bowling. They both needed an outing today. I’ve decided that keeping kids inside all day is like locking a tiger in a cage with a duck.

Imagine that.

Now I am currently blogging while laying down in my cold basement hoping it will help my fever. I think I’ll sleep here.. it seems more comfortable then my bed right now..
