Charming, but single

A journal in dates and drinks

Weekend Update: Moms rule edition

I have been sick this weekend. Siiiiick. So sick that today was the first day since Thursday that I even bothered to a put a bra on, and had it not been Mother's Day, I would have probably just lounged around, braless and moaning. Everything hurts -- my chest and back from coughing so much, my head and face from the sinus pressure, my body from the general aches, my throat from the coughing and grossness, my ears from the swelling and my eyes from the itchiness. Even my damn teeth hurt, presumably from the sinus infection, as I can't imagine I got a cavity between now and Thursday. As if the combo of a sinus infection and bronchitis was not enough, I had a reaction to the meds the doctor gave me. I'll spare you the gory details. Suffice it to say that it was unpleasant. My mom was checking in on me and she took one look at my greasy, matted hair and my pastiness and my ill-fitting comfy PJs and tried to put on a happy face as she said, "So, how are you feeling?" I looked at her and deadpanned, "Gross. Like death." And then I coughed this deep cough with all of this nastiness in my lungs and I sounded like someone who had smoked 5 packs of cigarettes a day for the last 25 years. As I uncovered my mouth, the fever and lack of sleep a set in and I kind of lost it. In a weepy voice, I said, "Mom, I am so unattractive right now." She just giggled, smoothed my hair, walked me back to the couch and said, "I know. But I love you."
