my sick day
Does anyone else lose their appetite when they are sick? My theory is because since I am so stopped up and I can’t taste anything nothing sounds appealing and therefore I don’t feel the that “hunger feeling”.
So yesterday my day of sick eats was pathetic. I started out good. At around 7:30am, for breakfast I had overnight oats (that I did have the forethought to prep the night before during the Superbowl…pats herself on back). I then had to go back to the dentist to have an old filling replaced. Who knew old fillings could go bad?? I know my dentist loved working on my sick self. Mouth breathing and all…hey the nose aint working!
I got home around 10:00am and immediately took a shot of NyQuil. About 45 minutes later, I was woken up to the sound of a chicken crowing. WTF? I went downstairs to find that Rosie, my favorite chicken, had flown the coop and was playing with the neighbor dog. In my NyQuil [drunken] stouper I tried to rescue her. Has anyone tired to be functional when on NyQuil? Oh my gosh…my reaction time was so slow and my head so foggy I was getting frusterated with myself. Anyway, one frantic call to Keith I had a resuced chicken. My hero.
I went back to bed.
Around 2:00pm I woke up and thought I should eat. I ate some leftover asparagus with a little hummus and a luna bar. So random. And I didn’t taste a thing! I swear when I am sick my taste buds totally go into hiding.
I tried to work a little from home, or let’s be honest I spent the day chaffing my nose while watching Kourtney And Kim Take New York. Seriously…all that did was make me side with Kim…Kris Humphries is a punk. So one Kleenex box later I realized I might should try to eat something else. I settled on an apple.
Dinner was a bowl of leftover chili.
At 6:30p.m. I took another shot of NyQuil and trekked up the stairs to bed.
A day in the life of sick Kelly.
