Bed Day

February 2, 2017

I spent the day in bed yesterday, minus meals and a shower. 

I watched one of my favorite movies, Julie and Julia. It’s all about food, cooking and blogging. What’s not to love?

This flu thing is no fun at all, that I know for sure. I spent most of Tuesday coughing, and yesterday I tried to speak very little, and that seemed to keep the coughing to a minimum. I woke up early this morning super wheezy and that sent me into a coughing frenzy. I took a hot shower, took all of my drugs and climbed back into bed.

I have a slight fever so Mike is really trying to keep his distance. He is picking up Tess at the airport today while I give bed one more day. I hate to think of Tess coming home only to go back to Dallas with the flu! 

My biggest concern now is feeling better so I can go with her to the visitation and funeral. I just keep thinking what crappy timing this is.

On a very happy note, my moms cousin got to see her dog! Her friend brought the dog to the nursing home for a visit, sent my mom a picture, which she sent to me, which I share with you. Not a great picture, but such a happy few minutes. This particular nursing home is being very kind to her. Prayers answered here, that’s for sure.

I don’t have an upset stomach or any tummy issues, so that’s good. I didn’t have a huge appetite, but food tasted good and I did eat three meals yesterday.

Breakfast – 11 SP

I love this and hadn’t had it in forever!

Oatmeal with Blueberries and 2 T. Almond Butter. (I usually only have 1 T of Almond Butter) I heated up 1/2 C of frozen blueberries and mixed them in with my Oatmeal. 


Lunch – 9 SP

Rotisserie Chicken (breast and leg meat) with homemade Honey Mustard, leftover Green Beans, Blueberries


Dinner – 8 SP

Mike grabbed some take out from our spot up the street, Sunset Grill. I ordered the Chicken Hawaiian Skewers, the lunch portion.

Chicken, Peppers, Zucchini, Onion and Pineapple with a side of potatoes. This is one of those meals that you just have to guess the points on.

    Thank you Michelle. I’m hearing a lot these last few days about how bad the flu is this year! Dang it! I rarely get sick, and no, I did not get the flu shot. I’ve never had it before, although that might change next year. My husband always gets it, and this October when he went in for his physical, they were out and he never went back to get it. Go figure.


  2. I hope you are feeling better in a couple of days with your trip coming up. I read in the KC Star today that this is going to be a terrible season for flu. Did you get a flu shot? I did get the early one they give for us old folks and sure hope I don’t get it.

    Tamilfu is used primarily to shorten the length of the flu, but unfortunately you are still contagious. Ick!

    I’m glad you have an easy week! Enjoy it. 🙂

  4. Hope you feel better soon.
    Doesn’t the medicine the doctor gave you–keep you from passing the flu on???
    It’s Catholic School Week here and they got so much planned that it’s an easy week for me.
