The Walking Stomach Flu

I have been sick as a dog for the last five days. My daughter brought home a stomach bug from preschool and it tore through the house like the Black Death. In the morning people were fine, by the afternoon it was too late.

The only good thing about being sick is that it means I get to watch a lot of TV. Usually my days are too busy and I can barely keep up with what I have. But during this illness, I burned through two seasons of The Walking Dead and I have no idea if that's a good show to watch or not when one is sick.

On one hand, I kept thinking it could be worse, there could be a zombie apocalypse. But on the other hand seeing so much gore and skulls being caved in wasn't good for my delicate constitution. The show really revels in the horror aspect of zombies and likes to get a close up everytime a pick axe goes into the brain.

When I was pregnant I watched charmed and I blame the estrogen for how much I enjoyed it. I found myself crying at the sisterly antics on more in one occasion and I'm pretty damn sure that show did not deserve any tears.

So what do you guys do when you're sick, anybody watching anything good? Apparently there is also a cold making its way through the school and undoubtedly into my house....


  1. You poor thing! I have been lucky to not have any intestinal/stomach issues, thank God! However I recently had the actual Flu with sneezing, headache, aches and pains, coughing, and other nastiness. While I was sick for about 3 weeks total, I was completely down for 2 of those weeks! Ack!, I spent a lot of time TV watching and reading like a fiend! I actually read your newest installation of Valerie Dearborn during that time, along with several other books. I think it's a fantastic time to read up as well as catch up on TV. I read daily anyhow but I probably ate up about 10 books those 2 weeks alone! LOL. Anyhow best wishes! I hope you feel better soon! PS. I absolutely LOVE the walking dead but yeah the gore factor is pretty high for a stomach sickness!

  2. Hi Caroline I really hope you feel better soon :)
