I’m pretty sure this is what death feels like right now. I woke up yesterday morning feeling like someone beat the life out of me and it’s only gotten worse from there. I WOULD get sick the day after I visit the doctor’s for a regular checkup. Just my luck.
Yesterday, I laid in bed for 24 hours. I’m not kidding… I only got up to use the restroom, eat, and watch a little bit of “Chuck.” This morning, my throat is nearly swollen shut and it hurts to swallow anything. I haven’t been sick in such a long time that I forgot how much it sucked. I actually had to call in sick to work… and I never do that! Totally bummed because I missed a trip with a 22 hour layover in Seattle, but I’m sure glad I actually called in sick. I would have been ten times more miserable in the air.
My DB’s been taking great care of me– bringing me hot and sour soup, letting me sleep a lot and early, trying to make me take medication, and keeping me hydrated. Now only if he’d bring me a pizookie…. Hah, you can’t blame me for trying. All I ever want is dessert, even if I am deathly ill!
This recipe from Cookies And Cups was for a loaf of bread, but I baked them in muffin form so that it’d be easier to transport and hand out. They were best served warm, when the chocolate is nice and gooey. Banana, peanut butter, and chocolate… what more do you need in life?
