Health Karma

You play hard, you pay…HARD.  My head is packed firmly with cotton wool and someone poured gritty wet concrete down my throat through the night…know that feeling?  Being in bed sick means I am at the mercy of the whole family – who are determined to love me to death.  The dogs keep arguing over who needs to be on my legs and who should lie full length along my body – apparently to keep me warm, and not to stifle or suffocate me in any way.  I am fair game for our youngest who is reading to me from her favorite book of the moment – something about the process of mummification.  Nice.  And the boys alternately place their cool hands on my fevered brow and yell at each other about how to make me the nicest cup of tea. Awwww.  I could cry.  Meanwhile, while I have the whole family monitoring my every breath in my bedroom, Kayfa is making the most of the vacant family room and its lovely fire.

I am so jealous.

  1. Please, please rest up even though that’s hard for you to do. It’s very important though.

    You see when I get what you’ve got it becomes a Man Cold (as documented on YouTube) and they’re much, much worse and I am going to be much, much sicker 🙂 ….

  2. I moused over the photo to see if there was an explanation of who is lying beside Kayfa. Instead I got a thought bubble with the words, “Boots mud alpacas halitosis chicken”. Kayfa is obviously a deep thinker.

  3. I haven’t figured out yet the ideal posting of seems to me sometimes wordpress likes me and sometimes it doesn’t..but how very apt that those words came up in Kayfa’s photo…she IS a very deep thinker, she has a splash of Russian Blue in her for sure! I laughed when I read your comment and felt 2% better immediately 🙂
