Mama is sick and it ain’t pretty. Aside from the headache, fever, stuffed up nose and sore throat, I haven’t tasted in at least 4 days. A few friends told me that I look like I have a really bad headache so that can’t be saying much for my physical appearance at the moment. Luckily a British friend gave me a medicated lemon drink called Lemsip Max and since I’ve been taking it I can’t even remember my name. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. I passed out at 9pm last night and woke up this morning at 9am. Even with this awful cold/flu I’ve managed to sleep longer than I have since I started doing this whole mothering thing almost a decade ago. It’s bliss. So anyone out there who has a cold/flu (or just needs a good night’s sleep) go buy a truckload of Lemsip Max.
