I LOVE being sick

Okay, so I know the title of this blog seems very unlikely but it is true. For the last couple of weeks I have been feeling a little crummy. At first I did what all of us do, blamed it on not getting enough sleep, to what I ate that day, whatever my excuse I just powered through, kept working and even went on vacation. Finally, last Wednesday I was at work FREEZING, a fever had finally caught me. I was just too worn down so I decided to go home and sleep until the fever broke. I ended up spending 2 1/2 days at home sick. I don't know if others of you are like this but I NEVER stay home sick with just a cold - I have to be down and out, vomiting - or completely unable to make it out the door for me to stay home from work. I am not sure why I feel the need to tough it out and not let myself rest, but last week I finally actually stayed home with a cold. It was AMAZING! I felt so much better so much faster, I am still a little sick but nothing compared to last week. Since Jeff was out of school we just hung out, stayed in our pajamas till noon, watched movies and drank lots of Gatorade. I can't remember the last time I didn't get out of bed till noon, it was fantastic, even if I was sick. Next time I get sick I am going to let myself rest! This was an "aah ha" moment for me - resting when ill is a good thing, not weak.

It hit me too that Jeff and I are coming up on our year anniversary in September. It does not seem like it has been that long at all! I still can't believe that after all this time he hasn't gotten on my nerves yet? I know that sounds silly but it is actually amazing. Even when I was with him 24/7 last week when I was sick he never once was annoying?!? On the contrary, I was so sad to leave him on Friday to go into work. I just want to snuggle up to him and listen to his silly jokes and stories for always. I could never imagine being with anyone else, I am so glad that I truly found my best friend to spend eternity with. I could not ask for a better husband, he knows me so well, takes great care of me when I don't, and has the most generous heart. Now - what do you get the love of your life for a 1 year anniversary present?
