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!

Have a great week friends!

  1. Oh no! You can't catch a break this month, can you?!?! You are really being testing during your Whole 30 challenge and the fact that you are still sticking to it just shows how strong and resilient you are!!! I hope you are feeling better, love your attitude of it can only go up from here!

  2. oh boo, that sucks. but you're right -- it can only get better so hang in there!

    for the record, i always run out of steam while doing laundry and mine have been in my basket for like, a week...and i dont have the flu or a broken foot so what does that say about me!?! LOL

  3. Bless your heart! I hope you feel better soon.

    I use the laser pointer trick on Molly all the time sick or not... That kid has so much energy and sometimes I just don't.

  4. Your dedication to the whole 30 is really apparent through this new series of struggles... I hope you're back on your feet (literally and figuratively) soon!

  5. I am so glad you made it through the weekend. I was thinking about you but I am such a horrible friend I kept forgetting to actually check in on you. Lol... I'm texting you now!!!

  6. Ahhh no!! Kudos to you for sticking with the breakup challenge though! I didn't even think about there being Whole 30 approved medicine. Makes sense though! I'm glad you were able to get out of the house and you are laughing it off!

  7. i'm all about wearing the same sweatpants for like a week and i don't have a boot hahaha. it definitely can only get better from here, so hopefully it gets better real soon.

  8. I'm so sorry you are sick! Pretty amazing you are sticking with your Whole30 challenge while sick-I would have been like screw it! Haha. Hope you feel better soon!

  9. crutches AND the flu?? noo! (although this post was quite comical....) lol. Glad I stumbled across your blog today! Excited to be following along!

  10. look at your pretty flowers! also I hope you're feeling better!

  11. I'm a medicine hoarder. I wish I was kidding but my "drug drawer" looks like the pharmacy of a CVS. Yay for surgeries and headaches and broken pieces! lol
    The fact that you are still functioning with a boot and the flu is impressive. I'd be laying in bed doing zero things demanding people (aka my bf) to serve me. If he's allowed to be miserable over a runny nose (I wish I was kidding), I, too, can be an asshole when my time comes, lol.

    Hopefully you feel better soon!
