The most overrated piece of furniture in our house

Every day when I'm busy running around the house I cast a longing glance at the couch and think how nice it would be to have a whole day to crash on the couch doing nothing.

Silly girl.

I've been sitting on the couch for a day and a half doing precisely that and I can tell you that I would love nothing more to have a burst of good health so I could drag the dang thing outside and burn it.

I've caught the head congestion thing in all it's kleenex-up-the-nose, Mentholatum mustache skankiness. Of course it's accompanied by don't-touch-me body aches.

I'm not very good at being sick.

I long for my old relationship with the couch. Curled up in the corner after the kids go to bed with a plate from my hidden snack stash and watching American Idol. Just the way God intended.

Isn't it funny how being sick makes you hate your favorite piece of furniture? I always become so irritated with my bed..and I LOVE my bed :)

that's funny, when I first started reading I was thinking- be careful what you wish for- because I have done the same thing! Sometimes I just want to lounge in my bed till whenever I feel like getting up but after a few days of sickies, I hate my bed and never want be in it again.

hope you feel better soon!

Are you feeling better?
What are your hidden snackies? I'm just dying to know. Just call me nosey!
