have you seen National Velvet? Starring a young Elizabeth Taylor? Well, her little brother, in the film, at the table for breakfast says, "I was sick all night!"
mom: you were not
boy: I WAS! I was sick all night!
but he says it more like "sickall! night!"
that has been a long running line in our family, if you are sick than you say that.
well, I've been really sick for a little bit now, and I feel like for me that equals short term memory loss, no appetite, 18 hours of sleep a day that's still not enough, as well as a really hard time getting anything done. Plus it's hard to be sick when you are on your own. It's like everything explodes.
But I will say this, I am getting better at not punishing myself for resting, and also, continuing to honor what my body is asking for. And I guess since I hadn't eaten in a while (strict diet of tea), it was asking for calories. And this is how I responded....
I picked up a whole grain pizza dough from Whole Foods (it's awesome!) and topped it with a smidge of fresh mozzarella, a roma tomato, 2 fresh eggs, and little specks of butter. I don't think that dairy is necessarily the best choice right now since I am so congested, but when I am sick, I feel allergic to nuts... where is normally where I would get my calories.
I added a few mushrooms before I baked it, and then I let It do It's thing. I didn't want the yolks to cook, but I was on the phone and I let it go a minute longer than I would have liked. Still good. Before I ate it, I covered the whole thing in pea sprouts. Sprouts of the gods. If you are in SLC the South East Asian market carries them.
Just a few bites really did it for me, and with a cup of blood orange tea, I am ready to sleep away the afternoon... as soon as I get a little laundry done. It's a shame that things still move around you, even when you are brought to a halt.
Also, are any of my Canadian peeps into the show Being Erica? I've been obsessed with it for the past week. I just finished the 3rd season and I really hope it gets picked up for a 4th. It's currently on Hulu, and I love Dr. Tom. I wish I could do time travel therapy.
so for all of you sickies, feel better soon. And for all of you caring for sickies, bless you.
