When I Am Sick


My face looks a lot like thisI am always looking for theseI am found in the fetal position often.There's a reason I married someone 6 feet tall.

It is officially the only time in my existence when I don't crave this

I always want to do this
I don't want to leave my house
If only this really was my home. Then I might not want to leave even when I was healthy.

Just in case you don't know yet - I have a cold. I hate it. I can't stand the way your body feels like it has no muscles. How when you try to get up and move it hurts. How I am feeling hungry but don't want any food. None of it tastes good or looks good.

Here is my very stern letter to the cold

Dear Cold,

Why did you decide to infect me while I am in school? How inconsiderate of you! I have a hard enough time making myself study while in good health, you think I am going to get to classes and study when I feel like a puddle of flesh? No, Cold. No. Now, I'd appreciate it if you would make this a quickie and get up on out of here sometime like.. tomorrow. Yeah, that would be nice.

I hate every bit of your black soul,

Whitney

I hope it get's this letter soon.

Thanks you guys :)

Life as Ashley said...

What the heck? My google reader didn't pick up on this post. Good thing I love you soooo much I stalk you even when there's seemingly nothing new going on. :)

Hope you feel better. Your pics look just like me when I'm sick. Same drawn out puppy dog face, same baby cradle by the hubs. Love it. I don't care if it appears awkward. I could sleep like that forever. Haven't been sick since Kaeden was born. Don't know what will happen when I have to share that spot.

Feel better!

Kayleigh said...

I'm sorry, Whitney. :( Colds are awful. I'm sure you'll feel better soon, though. If not, just get extra hugs from Jaren. :)

Abra said...

Ugh, I agree with the unofficial Shakespeare quoter.. although I would have counted for you too... and added something about the Thane of Fife having a wife...

Anywhoo. yeah
Colds SUCK!!!!!!

Abra said...

AHHHH I can't believe I actually said "Anywhoo!" Who says that?
Me.
apparently

Jo said...

You're cute even when you are sick, I don't know how you do that.

*MARY* said...

Poor Whitney! Hope you feel better soon.
And Abra, Zach Braff says anywho all the time and he's pretty much the coolest person in the world.

Rychelle said...

i think colds like to receive mail. i mean, who doesn't?!?

Kristina P. said...

Being sick totally sucks.

Christa said...

I'm sorry that you're not feeling well. Stupid, inconsiderate cold. I've had a sort of moderate cold for a while now. I don't feel terrible, but I just don't feel great. It hasn't been fun.

Get better soon.

Victoria Elder said...

Feel better! Um I wish that was your house so I could come stay & have my own "wing" of the house...that'd be sweet

Erin said...

I'm pretty sure you got sick BECAUSE of the stress of school. I hope it leaves your body quickly!

The Boob Nazi said...

That sucks.... sorrrryyyyyy. I'm also the biggest wimp. Why has no one created a cure for the effing common cold?

Misti said...

Oh, feel better soon! As you may remember, the guys here were sick, and it sucked! Drinks lots of water, and rest!!

Jillybean said...

I'm so sorry you don't feel well.
I made chicken soup today. Do you want me to mail you some?

Kristal said...

Bummer, bummer, bummer. I hope you feel better soon. A hot bath always helps me feel less like, how did you put it? - a puddle of flesh.

Wendyburd1 said...

Awww Whit, feel better!! Have some soup and sleep when you can!

Mina said...

Colds are so rude. They never call in advance.

Sorry.

ramsam said...

I hate colds and being sick, because even if you thin a day in bed sounds fun, you know, to catch up on magazines or read a great book and pig out, none of those things are fun when you are sick. You just want to curl up and rock yourself to sleep! Yucky.

Get better soon!

Denise said...

I was sick last week. I didn't leave my house for three days.

Brittany said...

I hope you don't have what I have. Especially because what I think I have is the plague.

Jessica said...

At least you're still good at blogging when you're sick. :)

Willis Family said...

Being sick is the worst! Hope you feel better soon.

Scooby and Jon said...

That sucks. I have a cold too. Maybe some funeral potatoes will help? (The whole funeral in the name thing doesn't bother me...I love the spuds, so the name makes me happy...is that odd?)

Miss Lovely's Musings said...

Whit, here is the upside to not having kids. When you are sick, you can lay down, take care of yourself and get babied. When you have kids, there is not rest ever! Right Misti?

Get better!
Aunt Susan

Your illness has inspired me to finish my blog entry on home remedies:
http://cajoh.blogspot.com/2008/11/home-remedies.html

...maybe one of them will help.

Hope you feel better,

Alexis and Casey Treese said...

Being sick is the worst! and I am so sorry. On the other hand... I love this post.

Kudos to you for posting a "sick" picture. I dont have the guts but then again you still look hot and human when your sick, I look like death.

And I love that your help mate was a good sport with the example pictures.

And if I had that dream home trust me I would be even more of a homebody. But its huge so it better come with a maid. High maintenance you say? Why would anyone think that about me? Digressing, That reminds me of an air freshener I have in my car... it says "High Maintenance doesnt even begin to cover it." Casey was laughing so hard when he saw it... A little too hard.

Love and Angel Kisses.

Whitney R said...

Alexis - Not High Maintenance. If I had a house that big I would either have enough children to fill it AND clean it or I would be rich enough to hire a maid. Not wanting to clean a mansion doesn't make you high maintenance:) And I find it hard to believe you would look anything other than stunning even when you are sick.
