Temptation Tuesdays

It’s been a rough week. Last Wednesday I woke up with a sore throat – NBD, but by the end of the day I was curled up under 4 blankets, gulping tea, and still struggling to get warm. The ridiculous fever and muscle aches that followed confirmed my suspicions: FLU! So, I’ve watched a lot of TV, drunk a LOT of tea, and spent much time cuddling hubby and the cats. Today, a week in, I’m still fighting this stupid virus. Happily the fever is gone and last night was the first night I actually managed to sleep halfway decently. Here’s to the light at the end of the tunnel. And a question for the day: what kind of sick person are you? Do you whine or try and push through? I’m more fight through the pain normally, but this one definitely kicked my butt! So apologies that Temptation Tuesdays is actually coming out on Wednesdays. Still I have some fun ones for you =)
