Yeah….Tahiti still sounds pretty enticing! Simon, Nick, John, Roger & Dom aside….
Here in California today, it is grey, cool…almost threatening to actually rain (*gasp*), and I am sick on the couch with the flu. Some winters I’m lucky and don’t get sick very often, but so far this winter is not measuring up. This flu is particularly bad though due to the fever I’m fighting, and since its the week before Christmas – which in our house is a major holiday – the timing really couldn’t be worse. Today I was to go grocery shopping for the entire week, including Christmas – and then tomorrow is cookie baking day. My sister arrives on Wednesday, and then after that the week and tasks become a blur through until next Monday. Instead, my husband took one look at me before he left for work this morning and said “Rest. Stay in bed. Make me a list and I’ll take care of it.” Famous last words, although I appreciate his optimism. Staying in bed and “resting” don’t work with a 3 year old, even though my older two are home on holiday break for the next couple of weeks. My point is that I don’t even work outside of the house and it still takes me all day to accomplish things. He’s going to be at work until about 6, get home here around 7pm and then go shopping? Oh boy and good luck!
So my friends, I do need to get better. Quickly. It makes me wonder how the band does it when they’re sick. I mean, they can’t go around canceling shows whenever they’re ill, although I suppose they power through it the way I need to do this week. I think it was Dom that said something about having tons of adrenaline. I need some of that, except I’m pretty sure I used that all up during my trip! I need to reload. In the meantime, I’m going to take some Advil (thank goodness for Advil), grab a blanket and try to rest.
Hopefully I’ll have some dreams of being on a beach in Tahiti. You can pick the band member that will be my personal bartender and bring me drinks!
