Flu Days

February 21st, 2015

I was SO excited when I made it home from hours upon hours of closed airplane quarters and wandering through the people at the airport without getting sick.   In fact, I felt like I’d conquered something big, and I guess, in some ways I had.   After all-   it IS the middle of cold and flu season.

Forward several weeks later- and I innocently took a sip of a beverage that a friend offered me at a birthday party.   A few days later, she came down with the flu, which ended up including a non-welcome visit to the emergency room.     It wasn’t long after that and I came down with the sniffles and that general achy feeling one gets when on the edge of coming down with ‘something’.

I fought it for days upon days with nothing but Thieves Essential Oil, and truth is-  I thought my body and the essential oils had managed to beat it.   Until Tuesday evening-   aches and pains followed by fever.  It was exactly what I didn’t want-  but then again, who ‘wants’ the flu?

Life as I know it came to a screeching halt- and it has since.   My fun weekend plans were canceled because I didn’t want to infect any of my dear friends,  so here I sit at home taking care of me.

The silver lining to all this?   I’ve been streaming Netflix and catching up on shows that I haven’t ever watched, plus I’m reading again- something I haven’t done in a very long time.

It is also giving me plenty of time to think about my new business venture with a close friend, plus think about my company and where I would like it to go this year.

As a friend wrote in a message earlier in the week..  sick?  Ain’t no body got time for that!   So true!  But the body has a way of slowing us down, when we don’t want to, and for that, I’m grateful!
