Not the Best Day!

I woke up with the flu.

Actually, I didn't wake up with the flu because I didn't go to sleep, all night long.

Not even for 5 minutes.

Can't wake up if I haven't slept.

Thankfully, it wasn't the stomach flu.

Just the "achy, I hurt everywhere, even my teeth hurt" flu.

Not even achy.

Down right pain.


As I laid in my bed, rotating behind ripping off my sweatshirt (now I know why it's called a sweatshirt) & rolling around miserably in just my tank top, I had one lucid thought midday.

"Yeah, it's a No Spend Day & I'm stuck at home, so this one is achievable."

Except my dear husband, in his valiant attempt to help me out, went to the store & brought home two cases of ginger ale.

"Just in case your stomach turns", he proclaimed, with a big smile on his face.

He loves to save the day.

Except it's now the next day, I'm down to achy, not painy & the ginger ale remains unopened & sitting on the floor beside our bed.


Really, it wasn't my fault! I didn't ask him to be sooooo nice & go to the store to buy me something to help me out.

He did it all on his own.

I'm anticipating a call today when he suddenly realizes he screwed up the last "No Spend Day" for January.

Love that my family is on board with this.

And love that they care enough to not worry about messing up my new system.

If I wasn't feeling so lousy, I'd get pissy.

But for now, I'll bask in the love!


  1. Oh I hope you feel better soon, and quite frankly, I think your hubby is a keeper!! :)!

  2. Aww... Feel better soon! ((hugs)) Ps - "medical" costs don't count... ;)

  3. Hubby gets a pass big time on the spending!! How sweet he was trying to help you feel better, the soda won't go bad so you are ahead of the game in the long run, now you don't have to buy any. Feel better soon

  4. Thanks Sharon. He's a pretty good guy. We've been together 30 years. He's getting pretty close to being a "keeper"!

    Love the "medical" costs Carla. I feel much better now knowing they don't count and I can rest easy.

    Definitely ahead of the game Debby. I have so much ginger ale, we're set for the next year if anyone gets the stomach flu!

    Big update of the day: I went on web banking last night and discovered that my angst about Kent spending money on a NSD was pointless. The amount for the "medical" ginger ale actually shows as coming out of our account on Wednesday, not Tuesday, so he's in the clear!! Perfect timing for when he went to the store. :)
