when you are couch bound

Raise your hand if you've already gotten sick this month. Yeah us too. Those darn bugs. Jimmy had strep throat symptoms this past week. And I will proudly admit that I sharpened my mommy skills when I made him stay on the couch, wear socks and/or slippers, prepared lemon honey tea, and antibiotics, cooked chicken noodle soup, made him take medicine (that's a huge accomplishment in itself!) and rubbed his back while he fell asleep. It was all worth it though when he would sleepily say the magic words, "I'd die without you."
Then I caught the flu later in the week. Luckily I didn't have to spend my weekend glued to the porcelain. Instead I snuggled up with Jimmy under blankets, wearing fluffy slippers, chugging ice water, and watching movie after movie. Disney loves us. it weird to say that despite the fact that we felt awful, I rather enjoyed staying in and having my man all to myself???
Whos been lucky to dodge all of the bugs going around so far? And tell me what your secret is!


  1. My secret is having a baby so I don't let anyone sick near me plus you wash your hands a lot and use sanitizer. Though I feel like I'm kinda starting to fight a flu now. :(

  2. I'm sorry to hear you guys have been under the weather :(. But on a happier note your slippers are really cute! And so is your blue leaf it!

  3. We haven't been lucky at dodging the bugs. 4/5 of us got them in the last week and a half or so. Ugh. I hope you guys get all healed up soon!


Thank you for your kind words!
