Remnants of the Flu

I battled the nastiest 24-hr bug I've ever faced.  I was freezing cold, then burning hot, and sweating like a pig the entire time. Every part of my body ached and keeping my eyes open was a heavy task. I knew my fever was high because my eyelids felt hot and and my son would kiss my cheek and say each time, "You're burning."  I even turned down food, and I never turn down food!

If my husband had not come home early from work to take care of the kids, and me, the kids would have starved and not slept.  I'm so thankful for my husband!  He fed them, cooked, washed the dishes, and put them both down while I was delirious.  I woke up this morning feeling much better and this is what I found!

My husband got blindsided by me being sick and had to think quickly and cook something for dinner.  He made this pasta, and if you're wondering what that long strip of meat is, it's bacon. hahaha.  I died when I saw this.  He literally used jarred tomato sauce and put whole slices of bacon.  That's it- no vegetables and the bacon wasn't even cut.  I think it's one of the cutest and most wonderful things he's done.  I will let him eat the rest.

I don't blame my husband for not being able to pick up the toys after all he did yesterday.  However, this is only half the mess that was left by the kids.  How can two little kids create such clutter?

This was the mess created by me.  I've been on this bad sleep schedule where I sleep at 9:30, then wake up at 3 a.m. and work.  I did that again and that's when I started feeling the flu and apparently knocked over my poor headform and threw my vintage inventory on the floor. I claim temporary insanity.

Anyhow, I'm glad to be feeling human and healthy again and more listings coming to the shop tonight!  Only 12 more sales until 1,000, which means only 12 more sales until my sale is over!


  1. what a guy! sometimes 'man' food like that tastes the best too...congrats on a) feeling better and 2) hitting 1000 sales...which I hope comes super fast!

  2. Oh, Anna--this post cracked me up! But I am glad you are feeling better. Being sick is no fun, and being a sick mama must be a nightmare. Good husband, helping you out like that. (I bet that pasta is tasty--you can't go wrong with bacon, chopped up or not!)

  3. I'm so sorry to hear you were so under the weather but super happy to hear you're feeling better. I'm sure it's all due to your wonderful husband's pasta! Heehee!

    Congrats on reaching 1000 sales!
