Inspiration: Sick Day

I love my day job, I really do!  Teaching kids is amazing.  My students are hilarious, scary smart, and always surprising.

Unfortunately, they are also always teeming with disease.

Which means that I am also always sick.  It’s the worst!  I’ve had this cold (complete with a lung-dislodging cough) for almost three weeks!  (Don’t worry Mom, I’ve been to the doctor and she said I just need to take it easy and drink lots of fluids.  I promise I’m taking care of myself!)

When I’m feeling crummy, all I want to do is sit on the couch, snuggle with my dog, and wear comfy, warm, over-sized knits.

Luckily, there are lots of gorgeous patterns for sick-day appropriate wear.

I’m pretty sure I need to make these ridiculous slipper socks.  They’re huge!  And look so comfy and slouchy!

And I think I might need this hat.  Actually, I might need this hat even on non-sick days.

And I’m pretty sure this shrug/sweater thing is the closest I could get to literally wearing a blanket around the house.  So, that’ll have to happen.

Anyway, I’m off to go make another cup of Sleepytime tea and take some more Mucinex.  Wish me luck!

What do you want to wear when you’re feeling under the weather?
