Weekend Recap: What Weekend?

Some would say the fact that my mother-in-law was coming in to town and I spent the entire weekend in bed was "well played, Melissa, well played." But this illness was real. It was 100% the flu. Not the made up kind of illness that I'm so prone to pull out of the hat whenever something is on my calendar that I'm trying to avoid.

I even asked my Dr. if he would write a letter that I could give to the AG simply stating that I was, in fact, running a fever and had tested positive for the flu. But he snickered and made a joke about being in junior high again and needing to get out of P.E., so I didn't push it.

Thankfully my in-laws arrived just in time to spend 72 hours with my babies and the AG - and all of a collective 30 minutes with me. Thank the sweet Lord for them, I kid you not! I've had the chills, the fever, the nausea, the sore throat, the cough, the body aches, and - let's all give a big high five for the AG - the laryngitis. (The man was thrilled!)

When I finally awoke from my sleep induced coma this morning I turned over to see that Mr.T is selling convection ovens on infomercials. Bless his bling.

Needless to say I'm pulling the covers back over my head now and I shall re-appear when Ralph Macchio begins selling exercise equipment or Joyce Dewitt has her on show on MSNBC. Until then...more Nyquil please.

Oh, feel better! If you were closer, you could see my doctor, who found out I home schooled and offered me a note for myself. Yup. He sure did.

Did they give you Tamiflu? I guess not since you have been this sick for so long. I'm sorry. I hope you improve quickly, dear Melissa.

You're funny even when you're sick...a "gift" that's what I call that. Hope you're on the road to recovery by now!
