The News From My Bed

What's in my bed right now:

  • Two books that I'm reading (Naming Day in Eden and Absolute Beginners).
  • The New Yorker that came today.
  • A box of Kleenex.
  • The arts section of the Times, in case I want to do the crossword puzzle.
  • A pen.
  • My cell phone and the house phone.
  • A rather large stuffed dolphin (or porpoise - I supposed I should know the difference?).
  • A new game for the Wii, called Endless Ocean (which came with the dolphin/porpoise).
  • A microwavable heat wrap, now cold.
  • Me.
What's on the floor right now:
What's downstairs right now:
  • The Robitussin.
  • The jello.
  • The aspirin.
  • The Sudafed.
  • The hot lemonade.
Yeah. I'm sick.

Oh no!
but what a good day to be in bed...sending virtual soup...

Bee said...

I'm sick, too. Lots of books; lots of mugs.

I hope you are better soon; unless, of course, you are kind of enjoying the break.

Jennifer (ponderosa) said...

From that headline I thought this post would be about something completely different : )

Hope you're better soon!

Very Mary said...

Oh bother. I do, however, feel you pain and raise you some Puffs Plus with Vicks.

Heide Estes said...

Bummer. Hope it goes away fast.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Yeah, you're sick, but all the books! Sigh.

Feel better soon.

Unknown said...

I'm sorry you are sick. Get well soon!

heidi said...

Anonymous said...

Ugh. Feel better.

mayberry said...

Yuck. Sorry. I hate it when downstairs is sooooo far away.

Kyddryn said...

Aww, hugs sugar - I hope you mend swiftly!

I'd bring you some homemade chicken soup...but I'm afraid it would be a bit manky by the time I got there...so I'll just think warm, cozy, healing thoughts at you. They don't go off.

Shade and Sweetwater,

flutter said...

oh, man! that is awful, feel better

Carol said...

Feel better soon!

Endless Ocean sounds mindlessly soothing, but I have been hestitant to actually spend money on it.

A stuffed dolphin might change my mind.

Phoebe has complained of stomach, throat pain and I'm praying to God that Ibuprofen and a good night's sleep is the cure all for this.

Feel better

FreshHell said...

Yuck. I hope you are on the mend soon. And, I hope the weather is equally terrible so that you aren't missing out on any nice pre-spring days.

Gwen said...

Oh! Feel better!

(How was Juliet, Naked?)

niobe said...

Feel better soon.

and I'll be humming that song all day.

Kyla said...

Feel better soon!

I'm in my bed at the moment with my netbook, iTouch, and TV remote. My coffee is next to me on my bedside table.

susan said...

Seems like a hopeful sign that you're considering the possibility of a crossword sometime during the day...but best wishes for a quick recovery!!

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

oh man, that sucks. If I was there I'd go downstairs to get you the stuff. And then go back and make chicken soup and hot cocoa, too ;-)

Feel better soon!

a video game came with a stuffed animal? isn't it usually the other way around?
