Good things about being sick…..

I am well over my strep throat and back into the everyday flow of life. But today as I was sucking wind while trying to exercise again, I was thinking about some of the GOOD things about being so sick

  • My sweet daughter packed lunches for herself and her brother each day last week.
  • I spent the bulk of 2 entire days laying on our new comfy, wonderful, pillow top bed
  • I shed about 5 pounds
  • I could upload a ton of pictures to my Shutterfly and Flickr sites (this always takes awhile)
  • I got on an antibiotic that also cleared up the terribly annoying cold I had for 3 weeks!
  • The doctor I ended up seeing at our family practice, is the husband of a dear women who I have not seen in awhile. His wife attended a local prayer group I started this summer. She has colon cancer, and I have not heard from her in awhile. So I got to catch up with how she is doing from her sweet hubby. And she is doing quite well!
  • My sweet husband really pitched in around the house and gave me lots of needed empathy. šŸ™‚
  • I got to just lay around, and as a busy mom, that never happens.


  1. I sooooo can relate to the “I almost wish I was still a little sick” kind of thing!! I had that nasty flu for about 3 weeks… DH took off work for 3 days and it was sooo great!!! I also lost weight… though I have not only found those pounds I lost, but a couple of their relitives as well. šŸ™‚

    Glad you are feeling better, though. Remember to take time for you when you are well… it’s hard but we Moms should make it a priority.

  2. Glad you are doing better. Never fun to be sick. Usually when I an sick I just watch the house get in really bad shape fast. Nice to rest and loose weight though. Have a great day!
