Morning Smile: Sick

Title seems like an oxymoron, I know. (Quick aside: I just learned that oxymoron is itself an oxymoron. Neat.) Sick doesn't usually play nice with smile, but with Max around, anything is possible.

I came down with a killer cold last night. Painful sore throat, swollen tonsils, stuffy nose, plugged ears, headache, dizziness, joint pain. Sleeping was more of a battle with my pillow than it was restful and now I'm the grownup for two little ones. Sean is working.

Max and I are both seated on the couch. I've been looking through recipes while he plays a game on the iPad. Every few minutes I start to cry (I know, it's silly) cuz I just don't feel good, and every time Max pats my arm and puts his head on my shoulder. How cute is that? It doesn't make my cold go away, but it sure does make me feel a little better, if only for a moment.


  1. I'm one day behind you. Came down with this SAME thing on Monday morning. Terrible. And it's still lingering. Hopefully yours has gone away a bit!

    1. Three days later and it's still here. Had a fever and everything yesterday. But to add to it for you, you're pregnant! At least I can take Advil! I got something similar last year about this time while pregnant with Chance. I know how it feels. It's rough. Hope you feel better really soon!
