Avoiding the Unavoidable

May 28, 2010

After a day of avoiding it, I have to face the music: I’m sick.

I started to get a tickle in my throat around the last hour of our drive yesterday, and it proceeded to get worse and worse (as tickles are want to do).  By the time we went to bed last night, it was a full-on sore throat, and when I woke up this morning, I could barely swallow!  I took some medicine and was feeling better during the day, but now it’s starting to creep back up on me.  Bleh. 

I’ll take some more medicine before bed tonight, and hopefully I’ll have this thing beat soon!  I rarely get sick, so when I do, it really gets me down.  😦

For dinner tonight, I was craving tofu.  Plain, uncooked tofu.  Hey, the stomach wants what it wants.

Along with the tofu (topped with shoyu sauce), I had brown rice, plus a side of avocado + tomato.  Yum!

I also snacked on a maple nut Clif Bar this afternoon.  I love that flavor—it tastes like a big stack of pancakes!

Well, hopefully I’ll be feeling better tomorrow.  Any great-great-grandmother secret remedies you want to share for getting rid of a sore throat and head cold?  Being sick in the summer always just feels so wrong!

Off to read Prep—I just started it this afternoon! Night, all!

    Oh no!! Hope you’re better soon. EmergenC works well, and drink lots of hot tea with honey and lemon for your throat. I know you need to walk the dogs, but otherwise, just hang out in bed and read your book and get lots of rest.

    Sometimes I crave plain tofu, too… and however I end up making it, I always have to have a piece that’s uncooked and seasoned with salt and pepper!

    Sorry to hear you’re sick!! My only secret is lots and lots of sleep, but I think that’s pretty standard. Enjoy Prep- it’s one of my favorite books! Feel better soon!

    Ooh, you’ll have to tell me if Prep is as good as American Wife and Man of My Dreams.

    Sorry to hear you’re under the weather. T is still trying to shake a summer cold; miraculously I didn’t get it!
