Snug with a Bug

snug.w.a.bug
I've been in bed since Wednesday night with a nasty bug.  I guess the flu.  The fact that I can sit up and type makes me feel like I'm turning the corner a bit.  I have lots of visitors in this house who come in to check on me, give me a rub on the arm, brush the hair out of my face, offer to get me drinks, popsicles.  But all very good at letting me be.  Even Roman came in and crawled up next to me, cocked is head and said "oh mommy, you're so cute", as he rubbed my cheek.  I can assure you that I am currently not cute.

Yesterday I watched both installments of the 2002 miniseries of Dr. Shivago which totaled 4 hours.  I had never seen the 1965 original so I don't know how it compares, but the story is really amazing.  I also watched a documentary called First Position that follows young ballet hopefuls.  Wow.  Having a look at their tortured feet made my sick bed feel not so bad.

I've also had the company of sweet little bumps and kicks from this little girl, dreaming of what she'll look like, pondering her name.  Thank you so much for sharing in our joy and for all of your kind comments on my last post.

  1. Healing prayers for you.
    I bet Roman's correct...
    you probably are cute,
    even under the weather...
    the happy glow of new life
    and the love you project
    shine through.

  3. I'm on day 21 of my (official) influenza. I turned a corner this week - each day gaining a little more energy and coughing a little less. At the worst of it, I was a dithering mess with a fever and blurry eyesight. LOL I was FAR from pretty. :) I wish you a speedy recovery and lots more of that lovely caretaking you're getting! - Alex

  5. First Position is a GREAT movie (doc) and I turned it on while sewing one day, only to end up sitting on the couch glued to it until it ended. It was so fascinating I could not look away!
    Hope you feel better!

  6. I hope you get better soon. I had the flu which led to pneumonia. Not fun. I hope you get to skip the coughing part.

  8. Oh, I'm so happy for you, Anna! Not that you have the flu, but for those little flutters and kicks that no other feeling can match. It seems you'll need to add another dresden plate to your quilt! Hope you feel better soon!

  20. So sorry you are sick! We all had something with a low grade fever, but much like the flu (sneezing, coughing, body aches). Three weeks later I am *better*. Baby yourself!! :D
