19 Things That Happen When You are on Crutches AND Have the Flu
So you heard me whine and moan all about the boot last week. The world of course thought it would be funny to add to the pain and threw a good dose of the flu at me last week as well. Thursday I could feel it coming with the sore throat and runny nose, and then BAM Friday it hit full force.
Yay me!! It's one thing to be a complete wreck because you can't get around due to an injury. It's another thing to be crippled AND ill. I was a hot mess.
The result of said hot mess, and the long weekend that ensued due to it were a lot of things that were probably less than desirable. And since I didn't do anything fun this weekend to recap here today, I thought I'd give you the lovely list of things that happen when you are on crutches AND have the flu.
When you are on crutches and have the flu you might...
...eat chili for breakfast because it's the easiest thing to reheat
...yell at your XBox One because the remote is about 3 feet out of reach
... use a laser pointer to entertain your dog, because anything else is unfeasible
...have a complete hysterics breakdown to your boyfriend about how hard life is
...reuse the same Kleenex because the new box is too far away
...buy yourself flowers because you are depressed and you need them
...watch endless episodes of Say Yes to the Dress and Parks and Rec
...let the dishes pile up, and then pile up more
...do your laundry but leave all three baskets worth in your bedroom
...eat only two meals a day because three is too much effort
...sit on the shower floor in the "steam" to make yourself feel better
...attempt to take "Whole30 approved" drugs by get the pill form of Nyquil (which totally isn't)
...save that last Norco like it's the last piece of cake you're saving for a special occasion
...get really angry that you can't have comfort foods because your sticking with the #breakupchallenge2016
...not do your hair or makeup for three days in a row
...wear the same pair of sweatpants to bed and all day for two days in a row
...snuggle with your dog because he makes everything better
...enjoy the two times you do get out of the house because the sun is finally shining
...realize that it can only get better from here, and laugh it all off
So let's take that last one as our motto for this Monday shall we? It only get's better from here!
