I have been SOO sick.
I am a teacher.
I get exposed to multiple germs on a daily basis.
My body knows how to fight them off.
So if I get sick, you know it's a whopper of nastiness!
I'm guessing what I had was the flu.
I hurt so bad I couldn't move.
I ran around a 102 fever for days.
One minute I felt like I was freezing to death, the next I would be sweating profusely.
The worst part... I was alone.
Sure, I don't want people around me when I am sick.
I don't want to infect others with the misery that I am experiencing.
But I had forgotten... I had forgotten how nice it was to have someone take care of you when you can't take care of yourself.
I wanted chicken noodle soup.
Not the out-of-the-can kind, but the homemade make-you-feel-better kind.
I got everything out and on the stove to cook.
That took ALL the energy I had.
I ended up taking a nap from cooking soup!!!
Most days I feel like I do an okay job on my own.
Obviously I haven't found the "right" guy for me yet.
But I think when I do find one, he will need to know how to make a good chicken noodle soup.
