Cure for What Ails You #14 of 31

It's a busy month of writing and commenting with the Two Writing Teachers' Slice of Life March Challenge.  Please visit their site to read other slice of life stories and leave a comment or two.


What to do when you are suddenly struck by a nasty attack of the flu:

1.  Stay snuggled under the covers...layers and layers of covers.  A puppy nearby makes it even better.




2.  7-Up is better when sipped through a straw.
3.  Sleep.  An added bonus?  I don't have that "jet lag" feeling I usually get with the time change.  I slept through it.  
4.  Read...I can suggest 2 great middle grade novels.  Some Kind of Courage by Dan Gemeinhart and Pax by Sara Pennypacker.  Having time to read not one, but two books is rare indeed.

Thankfully, I'm ready to get back to the real world tomorrow!  Sometimes these unexpected setbacks can help you get back on track.

  3. This crazy flu bug hit me on Saturday. I am on day 3 and definitely agree with snuggly blankets, sleep, and 7 Up are the best medicine. I'm bundled up and sipping my 7 Up!

  6. Fingers crossed that flu bug stays away from my house. I did get bit by the strep bug today. :( Taking a nap after school happens.....never, so I'm not going to lie, I thoroughly enjoyed it! So happy to hear you're feeling better! :)

  7. Nothing better than a puppy and a book! Glad you are on the mend... loved Pax too. A book that will stay with me for some time!

  9. Don't envy the flu bug at all. But sleeping through the time change...wish I could have done that!

  10. So sorry to hear you were sick, but glad you took the time to take care of yourself. A good book (or two), a puppy, snuggling under the covers - all sound like great cures to me!

  13. So glad you're feeling better. That puppy cure must have been so nourishing. He's adorable! I just started Pax!

  14. Sounds like a plan for getting better. I have been wanting to read Pax. I'm going to have to move it up on my list. I don't think I want to get sick to get it read though.
