You will not believe how intentional I have been these last 3 days. You would be proud.

In the last two and a half days, here is a large list of things I've done intentionally. I'm pretty proud of myself:

  • called my boss three times to tell him I'm not coming in today (yesterday, the day before)
  • emailed my boss lesson plans and promptly stopped worrying about how things would go in the classroom (honestly, right now, I DON'T CARE)
  • took a hot bath and realized how uncomfortable our bathtub is. A 15-minute bath can be relaxing, right?
  • laid on the couch for approximately 27 hours
  • drank a half gallon of oj like it's my job
  • verbally charged the soup I was eating to "heal me" (yes, out loud)
  • disposed of a box of kleenex
  • watched approximately 13 hours of television and movies (more to come) in order to escape the fact that I am miserable and downright sick of being sick
I'm so proud of myself.  Since the natural route (i.e., soup and oj) didn't work, I will soon quite intentionally go to the store in my pajamas and purchase nasty high fructose corn syrup disguised as medicine and take it like clockwork. 

For now, time to hit the couch.


  1. Oh, sad. At least you get to watch movies . . . ? Maybe stick to hot showers. Either that or get some sort of cushion for you head for the bathtub--that can make a BIG difference. Tea, whiskey, cough drops. All very healing! Hope you feel better soon, and definitely by next weekend! {{{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}}

  2. Sending lots of hugs and warm healing thoughts your way in the hope that you're soon feeling infinitely better -- I fully intend that you shall! Love you!

  3. Laughing out loud at the image of you demanding your soup to bring healing. "Do it. DO IT NOW. [breaks down crying] Pleeeeeaasseeeee..."

    I'm really sorry you're sick, though. We'll be praying that God brings healing, whether that's through OJ, soup, cough medicine or something else entirely. I like your sister's suggestion of whiskey. Get drinking, bar wench!

    Love, Sheryl

  4. Suggestion taken. :) I combined the remedies of tea w/ vodka, Dayquil, and Vick's, and I am healed!! (Just ridiculously tired yet, but that will be easier to get over). Thanks, ladies!
