S i c k of being S i c k
I honestly thought I had missed out on flu season. I was proud of myself. I've been taking my vitamins, washing my hands, drinking the water... But, I was wrong. Friday night I felt completely normal and then Saturday night, all of a sudden, I had a fever, aches and I was freezing. It was terrible! I stayed home from church Sunday and then again from work today. I hope I feel better tomorrow. Sitting here, I feel better since I've taken medicine, but I still feel partly dead. But I'm not going to complain this whole blog post; I'm going to recap the last few days!
Friday was a great day. B and I met for lunch after work at Cravings downtown. We both got sandwiches and then headed to Sweet Treats for a cookie and coffee. It was really random, but a really sweet day date. And that cookie was amaze.
After running a few errands, we headed home and we were excited because Mack was here for the weekend! He wanted Waffle House for supper, and we were happy to tag along!
Mack is so funny. He knew exactly what he wanted: "A waffle with bacon and raisin toast". I love him so much!
Saturday morning me and B slept in, and then headed to Atlanta to do some shopping! We are trying to fix up the front living room/sitting room as well as B's home office. We were mainly just looking for some fresh inspiration.
We met my sister, Michelle for lunch at Bar Taco and it was so good! I got shrimp, pork belly and chorizo tacos with corn and cucumber salad on the side. It was delish!
We went to World Market (my new favorite), Pier 1 and IKEA. The best part is, I think we found our new couch! I don't want to share pictures of it, yet, but I will when we for sure buy something!
Just a few of the things I saw that I loved! I took so many pictures, but I don't want to overload you : )
Like I said, Saturday night was when I started to feel like death. In the car on the way back from Atlanta, I was so achy. After we got home, we ate dinner and I laid on the couch. I was so cold I was shivering. I had 3 blankets on, and a heating pad. I finally took some ibuprofen and the fever broke about an hour later. It was horrible!
I stayed home from church Sunday morning and rested all day. This was my view most of the morning. It was the perfect day to stay home... Rainy, overcast and cold.
The worst part of being sick was cancelling plans to watch the Super Bowl with our friends. I didn't really care about watching the game, but the food is always the best part anyway!
We ended up watching the game alone, and eating Cookout instead. It was actually a pretty good game, and I was glad the Eagles won!
Pink did a great job on the anthem, despite the flu. I feel for her. I have sung the National Anthem sick before, and it is terribly difficult.
I'm not a huge Justin Timberlake fan, but I thought the show was pretty good. I was kind of disappointed he didn't bring out any surprise guests (Hello, N*SYNC Reunion!), but I thought he did a great job. That outfit though....
After the game, we stayed up to watch This is Us. I won't spoil anything, but y'all. This show. I can't deal. I really didn't cry like I expected to, but I was just kind of sitting there stunned. Probably a mix of exhaustion + cold meds, but still. I love this show so much. Give it all the awards and accolades.
