a sick day


Yesterday I was hit with a bad cough in the afternoon. By the time we got home from dinner in the evening I was feeling much like I got hit by a bus & landed on the couch with a cup of tea and a Cake Boss marathon on Netflix. 

It's so easy to curl up on the couch in some cozy socks and do absolutely nothing when I'm feeling under the weather. That's actually what I was planning on doing all day when our sweet neighbor invited me on a walk with her. A walk. Outside. Meaning not on the couch. 

I really didn't want to go. I went though. And I am so glad I did. The easy exercise, fresh air, and conversation did me good. Now, I'll rest and take vitamins and not go insane because I was inside... all. day. long.

Sometimes what we need most is the last thing we want to do at the moment. But when we do, it's worth it. So here's to doing what we don't want to do... and being quite happy about it.

Hope you feel better! It's funny when you're sick how going outside seems like the worst idea ever but by the end of the night you're going stir crazy from being inside all day :S A nice little walk is probably a great way to go :)

Ugh! I was sick recently and all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with Netflix too! But I also have a little one who was sick at the same time, so we were both cranky, sick, tired and not liking things. Enjoy it! Relish it! I encourage you! And those socks are super cute!

I'd love it if you checked me out, and if you like what you read, I'd appreciated a follow back. Thanks!
