On the IPOD "Yellow" by: Coldplay
Ok well I'm admitting that I'm definitely sick...I'm hoping today is the last day because I really have to work tomorrow. The fact that I called the doctor yesterday is pretty much proof that I felt like I was dying, I usually try to fix medical issues myself without getting doctors involved. Anyways my appointment was at 1:45 and I got there a little early and laid across the waiting room chairs when I say I didn't feel good I really mean it. So about 5 minutes later the nurse came to get me and tried to convince me to get on the scale...first of all I don't believe in getting weighed at the doctor unless I'm pregnant, I'm a kid, or I'm about to go into surgery and the anesthesiologist is asking. I mean lets be honest obviously I'm overweight, if I have lost significant weight I would be happy to let you know, and the last time I checked tamiflu is not prescribed by weight. So my doctor came in first thing she said was "you look great!" obviously she was talking about my weight loss not the fact that I looked like I was dying. Then she asked "how are you doing it?" my response was simple, "I'm writing a blog and dealing with my shit!" She was so excited and is probably reading today!!
I left the doctor and went to the drugstore to pick up meds and Gatorade (sickness staple). I then went home ...by the way my husband was not thrilled I was coming home I think he not so secretly wanted me to take my disease over to my mom's house. I made a real quick chicken noodle soup...it actually was really good and took like 20 minutes to make.
Chicken Noodle Soup (Quick Sick Version)
3 quart size boxes of chicken stock (I used two swanson and one imagine brand)
4 carrots, peeled and diced
1 rotisserie chicken ( I only used white meat obviously you could use dark too) diced meat
1 cup ditalini pasta
1/4 cup acini di pepe pasta
Lawry's seasoned salt and pepper to taste
Pour stock into a large soup pot. Add carrots and chicken and bring to a boil. Add pasta and reduce to a simmer until pasta is cooked and carrots are soft. Season to taste.
Mike ate the soup too! Well only after I assured him that I have an airborne illness and he will not catch it from the soup. I wish I could say that when I'm sick I don't want food but unfortunately that is not the case I seem to be even more hungry... All I could think about last night was how much I really wanted a hot piece of cheese pizza with just the right amount of sauce on it...or a cherry and coke slurpee. To tell you the truth I don't really even care about the calories at the moment I just couldn't physically make myself leave the house to get it, which I guess is a good thing! So instead I had soup and Pop-chips, the best thing ever invented. It is slightly unnerving how swollen my face is, I looks like I've gained about 10 pounds but I know it's just my throat, I know this because I've weighed myself probably 5 times just to make sure ;)! Well I took the day off today except for the fact that I have to show up for my court date, I tried to get out of it but the court system wants me to spread my germs... Ill check in later.
