Here are some things I learned while being sick:
- Women of a certain age will leak when coughing and sneezing.
- Just when sleep is needed the most a coughing fit will materialize.
- Honey, lemon and hot water work just as well as cough medicine, if not better.
- There is nothing on TV during the day.
- A hot flash plus a fever is miserable.
- It's very hard to be at home in the middle of a weekday and not do chores.
- A sick body will make it very clear that it wants to lay down if chores are attempted.
- Did I mention leaking when coughing and sneezing?
- Missing 2.5 days of work makes for a pile of work to wade through upon return.
I'm happy to say that I am feeling much better today!
