Home Sick & Other Stuff

I have that cold flu that's been going around which is how I spent my Easter weekend. The worst day was Easter, I'm dealing with the end portion today.

Despite being sick, I drug myself out of bed and went to my parent's house for the holiday. Actually every Sunday is a big meal at my parents, but on holidays EVERYBODY shows up. I'm the youngest of 4 girls, so there's us, my brother (actually he's an ex-brother-in-law, but it's easier to just name him as my brother), 3 son-in-laws, my 2 nieces with their boyfriends, my nephew and my great nephew (who's Easter was more like Christmas). My parent's house isn't very big, we have to eat in shifts, but we're all use to it by now. My mother as always made enough food to feed us, plus 20 more people. She never seems to think she's going to have enough. We had: turkey, ham, mashed potatoes & gravy, corn, mac & cheese, stuffing, macaroni salad, pasta salad, deviled eggs, relish tray, green beans, veggies with dip, cheese cake and chocolate delite. Needless to say there was no dieting for this day.

Unfortunately, being sick I didn't get to enjoy the meal as much as I normally would have or any part of the day for that matter. I ended up at home on the couch taking whatever type of cold medicine that would make me feel better.

So here I am today, again laying on the couch watching some cheesy old movie about some parasite loose in an apartment building. TV is really bad during the day!!!
