Silver Lining: a bad case of the sniffles

September 27, 2013

a bad case of the sniffles

It finally happened. That cold I get every fall when the weather gets colder. It came late this year, so late that I've I spent the last few weeks feeling smug for successfully warding it off. But no. It's here.

Sam got sick last weekend, and that should have been my first red flag. And then I started feeling exhausted and sniffly. Then I was feeling downright terrible, but I spent the day leading my 5th graders around on a field trip in the cold and wind, which surprisingly did nothing to help ;)

So today I'm holed up in bed, sneezing and coughing and feverish and the whole enchilada. Thank goodness for Netflix shows I keep falling asleep to, and for herbal tea, which I still don't like, but I feel is faintly therapeutic for those with terrible head colds?

Anyway, here are some links from across the Internet to interest any sick-day web browser:

gave me goosebumps - the dissonance is beautiful

what your state is the worst at. I grew up in the state with most homelessness, but my husband grew up in the state with the biggest alcoholism problem, so I win?

we made this recipe this week, and yum. It doesn't store though, so eat it all when you make it!

and last but not least, an infographic about my church. Who we are, and what we stand for.

Happy Friday!
Get some relaxing in this weekend.
Heaven knows that's all I'll be doing.


  1. Hope you feel better soon!!

    I follow a few different bloggers who are also morman. I am curious though, does the morman faith generally believe in Jesus as God. That he died and rose again to save us. Or do they believe he is more of a prophet?

    Just wondering. I'm not very well versed in the morman faith.

    1. Hope you don't mind if I respond to this, I'm a friend of Brooke's who is also Mormon. Yes, we absolutely believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again to save us! We are Christians, and we worship Him as our Lord and Savior and King. We believe that there is no other way to be saved except through Him. We also believe that God the Father and God the Son (Jesus) are two separate and distinct beings with perfect, resurrected bodies, though one in purpose. If you're curious about what else we believe, you can visit, a site to answer questions about our faith. I would recommend clicking on the "beliefs" tab at the top to start. Hope that helps - have a good one! :)

  2. I feel like this entire state has gotten sick in the last couple weeks. Yesterday was my day in bed, but sadly, its hard to check out of life for two days in a row. Feel better soon!
