Laughter is the Best Medicine

 On my third day of the tummy thing I decided to just give up and spend the day laying in bed binge watching stand ups on Netflix. By bedtime I was feeling better. I managed to eat a baked potato and a little applesauce. That's the only food I've had since Tuesday and I hope I don't regret it. I wanted to lose a few pounds this holiday but this is ridiculous.

Pup has not been enjoying this down time but it's been so cold we wouldn't have been romping around much anyway. My sunny bedroom has been nice and warm.

A complete recovery can't come quick enough though. Let me remind you of what the bathroom off my bedroom looks like. It was a long, cold walk to the unheated basement bathroom every time I had to go and I think it's been about a million times. Ugh. What a week.

Thanks for all the book recommendations from yesterday's post. I went looking for some titles last night and I stumbled upon a page of books offered up in a 2 for 1 sale. I can't believe I've never read this as much as it's referenced. It's mine now.

I had never heard of this book before someone left a comment about it and there it was on sale. I got my money's worth because it's 44 hours and 59 minutes long. Yowza. Now I just need to get out of this bed. I listen better when I am doing something. If I'm not knitting or stitching, I just fall asleep. Thank goodness for Alexa's 30 minute sleep timer.


  1. Oh my goodness. I’m so sorry you are still sick and doubly sorry you have such a long walk to the bathroom. That would be miserable indeed. So glad you were able to eta something. Is the Mister still so sick too?

  2. I hope you are up and about today! This has been a misery for you!

  3. Wow it hit you hard Deb! So sorry. Best not to knit or craft when your so so sick. Resting reading, listening is the best thing. Does white rice sound good to you?

  4. I wouldn't worry too much about falling asleep. It's probably what your body needs right now. Feel better soon!

  5. So sorry you're so sick! Take care and t

  6. Oopppsss...fat fingers on my phone. Take care and rest... it's the best medicine.

  7. The best audiobook I listened to this year was Kristen Hanna's The Nightingale, is was amazing. Look for it! Hope you feel better, you poor thing.
