Saved by the Coconut Butter
Last Monday, Michael gave me a Valentine. This Monday, he gave me a stomach bug.
So even though it is my last week at work, I decided to stay home yesterday. I actually drove half-way to the office and turned back around.
When I got home, all I wanted was toast with coconut butter, banana, and chia seeds, so I went with it.
The rest of the afternoon pretty much looked like this plus a nap (or two or three) and cuddling with Emma who loved having her mommy home.
I also did something that I always feel like doing when I am not feeling well.
I watched old light-hearted TV shows that I’ve even seen a million times.
For whatever reason, this ritual is really comforting to me. It is like being surrounded by happy memories. Plus if I fall asleep and miss something, it doesn’t matter because I know the lines by heart!
I mean, this just has to make you happy!
It must have been what I needed because I was able to drag myself into work today. I still don’t feel very well, but I have a lot to finish up before my last day.
What makes you feel comforted when you’re sick? Aside from the shows, I love cuddling with my dog and my husband.
I hope that you all have a happy healthy day!
