Misery Loves Company

Yep, it happened. All the cleaning and laundry and bleach wasn’t enough to save myself from being caught by the flu. Miserable bugger. I laid down Thursday night and have yet to leave my bed. Wait, that is not completely true. I did have a birds eye view of my toilet and the bathroom floor. What is it about the ice cold bathroom floor that is so comforting when I am so seriously sick? It’s been that way since I was a kid. I know it freaks Bob out to see me laying there, white as a ghost, but it is the only place I can find an ounce of comfort when I am that sick.



 
Anyway, I am finally feeling fifty percent better. I actually ate a little bit of dinner then immediately wished I had not done so. I will be sticking with Sprite for awhile longer. No worries. I can live off the fat of the land for close to a year I would bet.

Poor thing. My Sister does the same thing when she gets sick. That floor is too hard for my old, tired bones. Feel better Marla!


My captcha code is fangshe, is this thing trying to tell me something?

Ida said...

You probably like the cool floor because you are burning up with fever. Hope you get better soon.

Blasé said...

Awwwww, does my lil' Marla feel achy and sniffly and feverish and things of that nature?

Have you tried NyQuil? Benny Hinn?

AIRBORNE!!! Go to your drugstore and get some. It works like Alkaseltzer in water. It is a highly concentrated immune booster. Obviously it is too late to take it early to prevent you from getting so sick, but it will help you recover much quicker if you take it now. Every 4 hours.

You may also try 2 aspirin....but please don't call me in the morning...

Sarah said...

oh dear. time for some chicken soup! and love that floor of yours.

Brian Miller said...

sorry to hear you have been under the weather...i hope it passes soon...the cool floor...i like it...

Lola Sharp said...

Oh Marla, I'm so sorry.
I had a bad feeling that was the reason for your absence, but I hoped I was wrong.

Ginger ale and sprite/7 up and saltine crackers.

A speedy recovery to you.

Love,
Lola

Parsley said...

So sorry to hear this. Some of these things are in the air we breathe so unless you had stopped breathing you probably couldn't have avoided it.

Take care and prayers your way.

P.S. The word verfication says 'bless'!

TechnoBabe said...

Shoot, I was hoping you were going to miss the bug since you had taken care of others and got through that. Sorry to hear you feel sick, I know what you mean about the Sprite. Take care.

Enchanted Oak said...

Oh, Marla! My heart just wrung itself out at the image of you lying on your ice cold bathroom floor feeling the intense misery of the flu. Reminds me of my drinking days when I knelt for long periods by the throne and prayed for God's help. May your health improve by leaps and bounds.

Sonya said...

I;m so sorry you got sick aswell! I hope it passes soon. Take Care of yourself:)

Amy said...

Thanks a lot! You got Hannah sick! I don't know how you did it from Oklahoma, but you did....you'll be glad to know she also enjoys laying on the bathroom floor after a good heave.....she's 100% mini me...

gayle said...

That is the worse type of sick! Hope you are feeling better soon!!

Rae said...

Oh you poor thing. You sound miserable. I hope you feel better soon.

Matty said...

We all find comfort in our own unique places. Hope you get better soon.

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Oh NO!! That is the worst. Geel better soon!!

Nancy C said...

Oh, that's just miserable. That floor is magically cool when everything else is so dreadful.

kbxmas said...

Glad you're on the mend. Nothing is more miserable than being so sick you don't want to part from the bathroom floor. Ugh.

Oklahoma Granny said...

You must be on the mend to end your post with that last line. You silly, silly girl!

Hope said...

Oh there is something so comforting about that cold floor when one is sick!

Hope you feel better soon.

Lily Robinson said...

My fave sick tummy food is instant potatoes made with chicken bouillon... nice and salty.

I feel sick just thinking about that cold, hard floor!

Feel better soon my dear friend. I'll pray for the Great Healer to pay you a house call.

Auntie Cake said...

Oh Marla,
So wishing you weren't sick! Hope by now you are feeling better, it's no fun when the puking sickness goes around. We got food poisoning one time and my hubby laid on our bathroom floor for a long time. He literally couldn't move, so he knows how you felt.

And I laughed about your comment about living off the fat of the land. (Right with ya on that one!) Even in sickness, you make me smile!

Andrea said...

Feel better Marla!! I'm a fan of the bathroom floor too...nice and cool when I'm sick and feverish. Love ya!
