Chicken soup for the... soul??

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.


  1. I don't have the energy to make chicken noodle soup from scratch even when I'm healthy. The can sounds good to me. I say go for the can then go for a nap!

  2. Hi Dawn,

    Sorry to hear that you have been unwell;(

    Hope you're feeling better now.

    If I'd lived closer I'd have made you my husband's gran's homemade chicken soup.

    Take care.


  3. Hope your feeling better now. SIckness sucks.
