I'm Not Lazy, I'm Sick

Let me be clear, I don't get sick often. But when I do catch something, It sticks for awhile. When it rains it pours. Started feeling bad Sunday evening and of course that was the night before Dugan was leaving for the field. So, here I am at home alone with a cold. I took a trip down to Rochester to lounge around with my friend Elyse and her family. Having her mom there to take care of me for a day and a half made things better. I got home made chicken noodle soup and a pound and a half of vicks vapor rub rubbed on my neck. I feel better today than I did Sunday and Monday and even yesterday but I sound horrible. I can't talk, it just comes out as squeaks. My manager from work called me earlier to see how I was doing and she knew the answer after I said "hello" which actually sounded like "h...*squeak*...ll..*squeak*...o"". She told me there was no way I would be able to take orders and it's best if I just try not to talk very much. Point taken.

Anyway, today I dedicate to laying around and watching Arrested Development and perhaps finishing my book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
This is the first time I've ever been sick and by myself in my entire life. I've always had someone around whether it be my mama or Amantha or Julia to make me soup or hot tea. Now I gotta do it myself and it's certainly twice as hard! I'm adding this to my list of "Reasons To Live Close to Family".

Poor baby sister! Come live here and I will make you soup! We will be here for 4 or 5 (or more) years. Feel better. Get some vitamin c lozenges- near the cough drops. Love you!

I don't know why I just read the part of this post that had my name in it. I'm so lame! I would LOVE to make you soup or tea any time!!!It seems as though you pulled through it and now I have to cross yet another thing off the list "Reasons Hayley can't ever grow up". Love you!!!
