I've Been a Flu-sie


Twelve miserable days I have been in bed.
And I wasn't alone.
My faithful companions kept me warm and entertained.


Magoo brought hot honey and lemon like clockwork.
Steam packs on my chest made me a real hot dish.
That and the Phyllis Diller hairdo.
Ha.
Yep, that's all I have for you.
I shall return when the snot octopus has vacated my head
or I have coughed up both my lungs.
I'd like new ones, please.

This FLU-sie is headed back to bed.

Stay warm and safe.
I'm going to let my hubby wait on me a little more
and cuddle up with a couple of warm bed hogs.

So sorry you've had the flu too! I got sick Christmas day and didn't leave the house for a week and a half...and I'm still coughing like crazy. I hope you feel better soon.

Tina,
so sorry you are under the weather! Know just how you feel, been sick for almost 2 weeks myself, don't think the cough is ever gonna go away!!
Hope you are feeling better soon, I'm sure those little "hot bodies" are helping keep you warm!

You realize, I am so stealing "flu-sie" next time I'm sick. Hope you are on the mend, or maybe milk the being waited on a bit more. Your choice!

Sorry you've been sick in bed, Tina. Your smiling dog sure put a smile on my face this morning. Adorable! I hope you feel better soon. I had a cough the whole month of December, and yesterday I woke up with a cough and stuffy nose....again! We need spring!

And here I thought you were on a tropical beach with an umbrella drink! :) So sorry you're sick. I hope that you continue to rest and heal. The dogs are adorable! Isn't it the best that they stay right with you when you're sick?

XOXOXO

Well bless your heart! The good news is it eventually goes away. I imagine you'll stop making green snot sometime by the end of March....sorry to be gross. Keep hanging with the boys. It's the best kind of love.

I hope you're feeling better. But who can resist the opportunity to snuggle with our fur babies, right? ;)

Come back, we miss you T.! Your public awaits. The flu - gah! Glad you had those furry little sweeties to snuggle with. It always helps me to snuggle with my puggles. XO
