just relax already

I’m home sick with the flu and I hate it. Apparently, just because it’s warm out, doesn’t mean you can’t get the flu. Note taken, LA. There’s a nasty bug going around and yours truly got bit. Without sharing too many of the terrible details…yesterday, I woke up feeling a little under the weather and by 4p I was out for the count with a fever of 102. Today, my body aches and I feel like crap but at least the fever is gone. Instead, of just lying on my couch watching TV…I’m blogging, answering emails and figuring out when I can shoot the LookTV video I was supposed to shoot today. My mom and beau have both already yelled at me to “just relax already!” 
They’re right. I don’t know how to relax, even when I’m sick. Especially when I’m sick. Even as a child, my mom had to force me to stay home from school when I had a cold or flu. Can you believe that? A child wanting to go to school when their mom is saying “you’re staying home!” I’m a weirdo. 
I just feel like I’m “falling behind” or something when I’m stuck at home, unable to work. So my pledge to myself today is to “just relax already!” (after I write this post of course, lol). And to take care of myself. Lots of liquids and TV for me. Hooray! How do you handle being sick?
