I'm a wittle baby

I'm sick.
Fever, stuffy nose, coughing, aching, sneezing, sick.
When I'm not feeling my hottest, I like to be babied.
I'm not going to hide it or lie and say "I just want to be left alone and sleep."
I mean, of course I want sleep, but when my little peepers pop open I want someone to hand me my medicine and a big Icee and maybe brush my crazy hair out of my face.
Maybe that makes me spoiled, but who doesn't like a little spoiling?
When I was in high school, I would even put on a little sequin crown to make my Mom laugh when she came in to check on me. Okay, okay maybe it wasn't so much for her as it was for me.
Made me feel pretty, damnit!
There are just some things that a sparkly crown can fix...
even my pale skin, purple bagged eyes & nappy hair were beautified by it.
So, since I don't have anyone to wait on me hand and foot right now,
[admittedly, my parents did bring me an icee and skittles today]
I'm looking for some of your pick-me-ups & remedies!
Give me whatcha got for a pork chop.

& please say a prayer that I'm feeling better by the weekend! I want to enjoy Mardi Gras!
I'm already missing the big Saints parade tonight :(
& I even had tickets for the bandstands and after party b/c my brother in law works for the Saints. Boooooo illness. Go bother someone else.

...face mask covered smooches...

24 love notes:

  1. Oh no, my poor sweet thang....

    You need to get better fast!!! Go send someone to get you probiotics...and take then twice a day forever.

    One of my girlfriends is never sick and she swears by this method!

  2. Oh Lace, get better soooon. :) *hugs*

  3. Oh no :( Drink lots of orange juice and definitely wear a crown, it helps.

  4. ohh girl I feel you. It must be going around everywhere because I have the same thing.
    I'm drinking lots of apple juice and eating lots of sherbet. :) Can't say its helping though since I'm reading this at 2am because this darn thing wont let me sleep. :(
    Hope you feel better soon!

  5. Oh no....feel better soon hun!!!
    Every lady deserves to be pampered and should definitely wear a sequined crown when one is sick.

    Sorry no remedies...but wearing cute pj's always make me feel better :)-

  6. Aww, I'm sorry you're so sick! *Big Hugs*

    You are soooo adorable, thank you so much for making me your Crush of the Week! That's sooo sweet, and I can't begin to say how flattered I am. You totally just made my week! :)


  7. durn it! i hate the nyquil line up of sickness!!! definitely sleep sleep sleep it off and catch up on your favorite shows...that's what i always like to do...

    love the sparkly tiara story...too cute!

  8. aww feel better soon!!! everybody here at the house got sick and are finally returning to normal!! lots of bedrest and chocolate cake should do the trick :D

  9. Double yuck! Sorry you had to miss the Saints Parade. That is a bummer. I find that watching really crappy daytime tv helps me feel better. As well as ice cream. That really helps.
    Get well soon!

  10. Eww.. I think we have the same thing. Only instead of being pampered with Icees and skittles, I'm doped up on Mucinex at work. Blah :(

    Here's hoping we both feel better by the weekend!!

  11. listen to me: you need to get better. you need to take meds. you cannot miss mardi gras this year bc the saints won the superbowl! lady! buck up! our boys did it for us. you can do it for them!

  12. I hope you feel better soon pretty lady!! Sending positive vibes your way...(hoping they make it through all the snow we are getting here)


  13. Hope you feel better soon! I hate being sick around Mardi Gras, there should be a law that no Louisianan should be allowed to get sick during Mardi Gras time, I mean it is our National Holiday!

    p.S. I'm new to this blogging world, So i would like to invite you to go check out my blog.


  14. you need to sleep sleep sleep and wake up and go to the parade! That is such a bummer you are sick for such an exciting event! hope you feel better soon :)

  15. I'm sorry you aren't feeling well! I hope you feel better soon. Boo for being sick! :(

  16. oh sweetest pea.
    sending you get well wishes.
    and a soft blanket.


  17. I hope you feel better by the weekend, Lace! It sucks being sick when you have better things you could be doing!

    I'm just like you though; I like to be taken care of when I'm not feeling well, and no one does it like my mom. My boyfriend, unfortunately, is the exact opposite: he wants to be left alone to sleep, so he doesn't exactly get my need to be spoiled.

    When I'm sick, I like to do what my mom would do for me. Make a hot bowl of veggie soup, drink hot tea with honey, lay on the couch with cold fluids on the coffee table watching TV or movies while dozing in and out of consciousness.

    I discovered Alieve Cold & Sinus the last time I had a cold, and it worked wonders! I love that it's 12 hours, so you don't have to worry about it all day and can actually get some sleep.

  18. I hope you feel better! I just saw that you are a follower and you commented...I am so happy, like I have a famous friend now. Great blog you and Summer rock!

    Thanks for signing up, hugest compliment I have had in a long time!


  19. Aww, feel better, girlie! Wish I could bring you a icee and tiara!!

  20. I've been sick too!! It's no fun! :( Hope you feel better soon!


You've always been my favorite... don't tell the others!
