That's right. A personal day (and unfortunately, a bit of a sick day, too). I'm laying on the couch, all wrapped up in blankets, with a cup of tea by my side and You've Got Mail in the dvd player. I'm taking it easy, taking some Tylenol and catching up on my rest. I'll have chicken soup for lunch, lemon and honey in my tea and an extra dose of vitamin C every so often. So far, it's working. I feel a little bit better, not so headachey (but still with the sore throat), comfy on the couch, with no one but myself to look after. Is that selfish? I hope not. Because at the end of the day, when I pick the boys up, I hope to be more myself again. And we'll all be better for it.
Okay, back to my movie. Just as soon as I pour another cup of tea.
