Sick As A...

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments about my 1 year blog anniversary, reading them has been better than a big bowl of chicken noodle soup!

And speaking of chicken noodle soup, I could use a whole vat of the stuff!  Both my son and I have come down with some sort of nasty virus, the kind you get after spreading yourself too thin during the holiday season.  The kind that sneaks up on you and makes you say things like "I feel sick as a dog," and makes you wish you owned a big red water bottle with its very own sweater!

Thankfully, these guys are not sick as dogs.  And also thankfully, Mr. Tide has been around to help out by doing EVERYTHING around here, including answering my work emails...I have to admit, he does make a pretty cute secretary!

For now I'll be snuggling up with these guys under warm blankets, drinking copious amounts of tea, and wondering how people can subsist on daytime television??!!!  Maybe tomorrow I'll feel good enough to fire up my laptop and catch up on what's been going on in the world...maybe.  For now I'm headed back to bed.

I hope all is well in your world, and that you stay healthy!


  1. Oh, I hope you feel better soon! It's awful to be sick...and you're too sweet to be sick! Hugs! ♥♥♥

  2. Kat, I hate that y'all are sick. Sounds like the stuff that is going on around here. My daughter and son in law have been sick, too. Get well soon!

  3. Hope you are back to your old self very soon. No fun to not feel well!

  4. Sorry to hear this, many people sick right now! Get pampered and get well SOON!! XO

  5. Oh, godness...not a good way to start out the year at all. Or maybe you are just getting it all over with now. In any event, feel better soon.


  6. Oh Kat, I am sending you some love and hugs. Get well my friend!

  7. Poor Kat! I'm so sorry that you're still sick. Wrap up in your blanket with your tea, hug your pups (and that darling husband of yours) and feel better.

  8. Feel better soon. That's my wish.

  9. Ooh, yuk. Hope you're feeling better soon!...

  10. well tg you have a good husband that tends to your needs and lets you get adorable puppies!! on the serious side i hope you feel well soon i haven't been sick but for some reason this Christmas just wore me out...i keep thinking tomorrow will be different that was like 7 tomorrow's ago!

  11. Hi Kat,
    sorry to hear you're under the weather. There is something fluey going around over here too - my husband had it and is never ill - the last time he was ill was when we were on holiday in America 14 years ago! It's nasty. I've got a sinus thing at the moment - headaches, eye pain, sniffing - yuk! I hate being ill and even more I hate being off work when I'm ill as I think about all the things that need doing around the house that I should be doing!!
    Hope you feel better soon anyway.
    Enjoy cuddling your dogs.

  12. My good friend just told me...3 days coming, 3 days here and 3 days to go away... I feel your pain. I have half a voice now and can actually breath through my nose!!! Feel better soon! Susan from Dover!

  13. Kat, I am sorry to hear you have the crud too! Pretty miserable, huh? I hope you are feeling better soon.

    ps: I love your new header.

  14. Hoping you are all up and feeling well soon, Kat.

  15. Hey Kat,
    I hope you feel better soon. It seems everyone I know is sick these days. Knock on wood....I got a flu shot in the Fall, so hopefully I won't succombe.
    Take it easy and get better soon.

  16. Sending you all my best 'get well' wishes to you. I hope that you will be up and about feeling fabulous in absolutely no time. My Grandma swore by chicken soup and so do I :) Congratulations on your first blogiversary. I for one, am so very happy you decided to take that first step 12 months ago. I could not imagine this bloggy world without you! Rest and take care dear Kat ~ Txx

  17. I hope your feeling better soon. DVDs are what you need, not TV. A few good movies should help the day go by - if I were closer I'd lend you some.

  18. Hope you feel better soon I had the crud last wk

  19. Oh no! I just peeked in to see how you were and I am sorry you are still not feeling well. Where is Ugly Betty? Did you watch all seasons already :)

    Daytime tv is pretty drab after a while! I hope you and your son feel better and gets lots of rest my friend! I am glad that Mr. Tide is being good to you!

  20. sorry! I wish you were close, I'd make that chicken soup for you:)

  21. I wrote a comment and then lost connection - drat!
    Wanted to say that I hope you soon feel better and then are able to take some extra time just to relax and refresh.

  22. I hope you're feeling better soon Kat. A good dose of R&R is what you need. Hope you are keeping warm! ;)Sharyne

  23. Girl, you KNOW
    I can relate...
    NINE days and
    counting, after
    no illness for
    nearly three years ~
    not even a cold.
    My best advice:
    R E S T !!!
    Hugs to you, today.
    xx Suzanne

  24. I see you haven't lost your humor, even while ill! Get well soon!

  25. I hope you feel better today!!!!
    Big Hugs,

  26. I have a sick husband upstairs probably with the same ailments. He flew in from Florida late last night and went right to bed.

    Just like you I'm curled up with my two furry friends enjoying the winter sun today. Thanks for the beautiful pictures of those babies of yours, they have such beautiful expressive faces.

  27. Sorry you are sick. Mr. C's favorite when he is sick is tea. I see you are a tea family, we are as well. "Tea cures what ales you!" Hope it works and you are all better soon. :-)

  28. Wishing you a speedy recovery Kat! I see you have lots of tea too (love your header images)! xo ~Lili

  29. Kat, I tell everyone who will listen, and even some who won't, old-fashioned Vicks VapoRub is magic. Put it on your chest and up your throat, wrap a towel around your neck, tuck it into the front of an old shirt, button up, and go to bed. You'll be right as rain in no time! And chicken soup is more than a myth; it works!...Feel better soon.

  30. Kat,
    That sucks! Nothing more miseralbe that being under the weather! I have such a water bottle, but it's covered in red flannel with a cute little deer head...prommise it will make you smile and feel better!
    Take care,

  31. Oh no, drink a lot of fluids that comes from me the RN. Sleep a lot too. Hope you both feel better by the time I write this as I have been offline.

  32. I hope you get better soon!!! Being sick is the worst:)

    ps...I am having a give-away on my blog if you have a minute to stop over!!!!!!

  33. Sleep, sleep, sleep.
    Stay in your gown.
    Do nothing.
    Get well!


  34. I am sending you some love and hugs. I hope you get better soon!!! Ag

  35. Thanks for stopping by my Blog-hope you have time to check it out again. Hope you are feeling better soon--the Holidays can certainly take a toll on a person. "Rest" is the best medicine ( my husband is a Doctor and even says that). What cute dogs you have. I have Papillions--kind of look like yours only smaller. Take care. Mickie

  36. Kat..
    the good Dr brought home a nasty case of the crud..
    and graciously shared it with me..
    I've been existing off Sprite, Crackers, Chicken Noodle soup (Campbell's original!)
    and copious hours of sleep..
    the furbabies keep me warm..
    watching over my every movement..
    recovery has ben slow..
    but it is coming!!
    hope you feel better soon!!
    warmest hugs..

  37. I hpoe you are feeling better!
    Happy new year!

  38. You poor girl, you..... :( Have you tried Mucinex yet? Or a Neti pot? I hope that you're feeling better and back on your feet soon, dear girl. But be sure to enjoy the extra attention from hubby! lol!

    xoxo laurie

  39. I love your images...
    Get well soon.
