Missing Mama (I may have a fever)

I know it sounds crazy but I miss the old bird just a tad! Apparently she will be staying in Tuscany for another week. Normally I would be skipping and singing songs but because I am home with a cold I really don’t have the energy to rejoice. (I certainly must have a fever because I am thinking delirious thoughts!)

To be honest, having Mama around when you’re sick is well, I’ll admit, kinda nice. I’m actually worse than a man when I get sick. I want as much attention as possible and have requested that my husband call me from the ship three times a day (normally he calls once).

I already called in to work yesterday because I knew that this thing was not going to improve substantially over the next 24 hours. I am looking out the window and it’s raining, the sky is a gun metal grey and the palm trees are blowing sideways. I’m quite happy to snuggle up with the cat and doze off for another marathon nap (I’ve been drinking Neocitran nighttime cold remedy every 6 hours, so I’m a bit stoned at the moment).

Neocitran, for those of you who are not familiar with it, is a lemony powder that you mix with hot water. It has all the drugs you need to get rid of a fever, runny nose etc. But you cannot buy it here in Italy. I’ve tried similar products here in Italy and none of them seem to measure up, so when I was in Canada over Christmas I stowed away a box in my luggage just in case.

As everyone knows, when you are sick, the comforts of your own bed is the best remedy. I grew up on Neocitran and so to me having this lemony hot liquid is just part of that comfy feeling you need to get well.

    I hope you feel better soon. Fever or not, being sick is not fun.
