Annnnd I’m back. Back to work, back to life, back to the blog. And what better day to come back to than a Friday!? Wahoo!

Anyhoodles, so yesterday we learned that I am not in fact a Doctor and by saying so I jinxed myself and had to take a sick day to recuperate. However I can say that by staying home sick I learned a plethora of new knowledge that I just have to share of course…so I bring you “The Amazing Findings of a Sick(ish) Person Home From Work” also known as TAFOASPHFW, haha.

  • Not being able to talk (or even sing along to shower music) is incredibly hard for someone like me to do who talks a lot.
  • Honey is magic to a sore throat. Not even kidding. I don’t know if it’s because I love honey or I just finished The Secret Life of Bees but I had an english muffin lathered with honey and then proceded to have at least three spoonfuls of just honey over the day to coat my throat and it felt a hundred times better. Amazing I say.
  • Ricola, Sudafed and Advil are also magic. Zicam would be magic if I didn’t buy the nasal gel which is way to weird to me and makes my throat hurt more than it did before I used it, ugh.
  • Also in the magical realm of cures: chicken noodle soup and raspberry tea. Magical I say.
  • The Sex and the City movie is even better the second time around. Even if I was on a ton of meds and dosing in and out of sleep I loved it just as much. I also decided that Samantha and Edie from Desperate Housewives are the same character, older woman sexpot, rock it ladies, haha.
  • I will always love Titanic. And Kate. And Leo. And Kate and Leo together. Le swooon. (8th grade Katelin is that you I hear?)

  • Despite my previous claims of watching Titanic seven times in theaters I realized that it was in fact five times.
  • No matter how many times I watch Titanic I always cry at the exact same spot. No it’s not when Jack dies (oh did I ruin it for you? but really you should know this by now, the movie is 12 years old!) but when Rose jumps off the life boat and back on the Titanic and runs to Jack. Precious.
  • Okay one more Titanic finding…I love that I own it on DVD and can fast forward through all the “present day” parts, they’re not nearly as cool as the rest of the movie.
  • After being cooped up inside and sleeping/watching TV/consuming honey it’s good to walk a couple blocks outside to get some fresh air…especially when the fresh air is no longer 97 degrees (thank goodness!).
  • Toasters are hot. Although you might be sick don’t forget that they’re realllly hot so you don’t…you know…burn your thumb knuckle trying to get an english muffin out. Gah.
  • Only checking your work email twice throughout the day is heaven sent. A sick day is meant to be sick and relax and not focused on work.
  • Watch out for Nyquil induced dreams. I dreamt that I was babysitting Halle Berry’s baby at the zoo until Spencer took over and I went off for the day with Heidi…yeaaaaah not a good dream at all, minus little Nahla, she was a doll. Heidi? Yeah I would shoot myself.
  • Get a boyfriend (just not mine, haha) that will cook you a delicious dinner even if he’s sickish too…yeah he got it from you…and watch Grey’s Anatomy with you. Now that’s a cure for sickness. :)
  • Sleep away the sickness, sleep away. Or sleep away/watch fabulous movies and your day will be so much better.

And that my friends pretty much sums up my sick day findings.
And how do you spend your sick days?

But here’s to hoping you have no sick days soon! fingers crossed.

and it’s Friday!

happy weekend!
