So, it’s time for another “Today’s Video” post, and guess what? It’s another #AwesomeAugust video! You might be thinking, “Siobhan, those are supposed to go up every other day in August, and today is Tuesday, meaning that you missed yesterday…” (okay, maybe you’re not thinking ALL of that, but you know what I mean). Well, in response, all I have to do is… Oh, well, you aren’t sitting with me as I write this but I just coughed. That’s right, folks, I got sick over Civic Holiday weekend. Who does that!? Oh, yup, Siobhan– aka, the girl with the weakest immune system in the world. It was the most awful timing ever, too, because we had a huge BBQ at my house on Saturday night, and that’s when I started to feel woozy. Anyways, I managed to enjoy the BBQ and didn’t feel super ill until Sunday night. I woke up yesterday with a super high fever, body aches, coughing like crazy and feeling quite nauseated, so needless to say, I spent the day in bed. I didn’t end up going to work today, but I thought that I should upload Awesome August Day 3. Once I was up (supported by pillows and like 3 cups of peppermint tea (that stuff helps EVERYTHING), I felt a slight bit better. So, I lay here, in bed, with my laptop, somehow mustering enough strength to write this post. Who knows? Maybe I’ll be able to make some Mac and Cheese (my favourite sick food), and actually be able to keep it down (overshare)!
I, of course, forgot to include a few things that I always have in my bag, like reading material (I always bring 1 book and 1 magazine) and sunscreen. However, as this was filmed on Sunday afternoon and I was already halfway to sick-ville, I’m okay with only missing two things.
