Wrap Me in a Blanket

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

Tuesday afternoon I started to feel something coming on.  I would have called off for my evening shift at the bar, but we had our bigwigs coming in for a visit and I knew that calling off just wouldn’t fly.  Normally, I wait a few days and see if I start to feel better before dragging myself to the doctor, but I’ve heard too many horror stories this year from people who have said that flu knocked them out for 8,9, 10, 11 days.

Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Tuesday evening after my bar shift I made an online appointment for first thing Wednesday morning.  Getting up at 8am was the last thing that I wanted to do, but I figured the sooner the better.  The doctor diagnosed me with the flu and prescribe Tamiflu.  I came home and immediately took the first dose so that I could start feeling better as soon as possible.

I did a lot of small things around the house and items on my to-do list but I was careful not to overextend myself.  Even though I probably shouldn’t have, I went to teach class that evening.  Although it is not my intention to get anyone else sick, I felt that since class is only 75 minutes I could suffer through it.

My outfit is one that I had picked out earlier in the week and it comes from this pin on Pinterest.  I went with the cream/white sweater, the grey skirt, and the jean jacket.  My scarf is more substantial than the one in the picture, but that’s o.k.  Really the only change that I made was that I opted to go with my grey knee-high boots over my tan ones.  I thought that the grey skirt and grey boots looked nice together.  Plus, these boots don’t get to see as much action as my tan ones do, so its good to mix it up!

Blanket scarf: Target. Cream sweater: gift. Jean jacket: Wal-Mart. Grey skirt: Wal-Mart. Grey boots: Old Navy. Silver watch: Fossil. Silver earrings: gift.

This outfit worked well!  I felt as if I was wrapped in a blanket and since I was under the weather that was exactly where I wanted to be!  Once I got to class and started lecturing I was actually a bit on the warm side with all of the layers so I took the scarf off.

Thanks for reading!
