sick day essentials4:29:00 PM
After being almost chronically exhausted for the past three weeks, my body finally called it quits on me and got sick. I've been fighting a sore throat, phlegm, headaches, itchy eyes, and an achy body since Sunday night. As much as I hate being sick, it does have the perk of reminding me how amazing my body is in the grand scheme of things. I mean, I'm a nail-biting, 5-second-rule-touting, third-world-loving, local-water-drinking, germ-y mess, and I have yet to come down with Bubonic plague. The body is pretty darn amazing if you ask me.
Since I live in America and do not get paid time off (I miss Sweden), I have been driving home from work at lunch to nap, followed by evenings filled with Downton Abbey, cozy pajamas, Cadbury's Creme Eggs, and countless tissues...which sounds really great, minus the 'being sick' part!
Hope your week's going better than mine...
