sick day diaries



well friends, i'm sorry for the crickets who've taken over this blog the last few days. they're really a boring crowd, i know.

in recent news, my tonsils have been seized by an unwelcome visitor called strep throat. mister strep, while not my favorite house guest, hasn't paid a visit in awhile, so i'm withholding complaints. and i may have prayed in the waiting room that it was strep, so i could at least go home with antibiotics. or…some antibiotics & painkillers & a truly mind-boggling concoction called "magic mouthwash" that really lives up to its name. i once had a horrific year-long, unrelenting battle with strep, and so i've gotten used to sensing its approach. like a well-trained hound, i can sniff it out. that is not a skill i'm proud of, but there it is.

and life isn't bad from bed. especially a brand new bed! (please read with the blazing, showboat tone of the price is right's bob barker -- come on dowwwn!) i've been catching up on emails, finally. finishing magazines and journal entries and diana film rolls like nobody's business. nobody's! i'm not going crazy yet.

  3. I love your positive outlook on your current struggles. I do pray that you start feeling better though and can get back to your normal routine in no time. Sleep well and cuddle up (you have the perfect excuse to)

  7. The brick in your room + the stack of books behind your fab bed is just lovely. Hope you feel better soon; being sick is definitely not fun! Are you going to share your diana film photos? I'd love to see them :)

    1. thanks so much. : ) since we live in a loft the rooms sort of all bleed into one another, so our bedroom is really also our office…and reading room…and dining room…and kitchen…so you know! things just end up wherever they please!

      & i'll be sure to share diana's gems.

      xo.

  8. These are lovely photos and I'm sorry that you've taken ill. I haven't had strep in the longest time and I'm hoping it won't come for me any time soon. Everyone I know is catching the flu left and right. Ugh. I'm happy this is giving you a little down time (and some time for productivity too)! Get well! xoxo
