It's 9 Days Until the Wedding and...

I’m sick.

That’s right—sick. Runny nose, itchy eyes, sore throat, coughing sneezing, snuffling, disgusting germy sick.

I’m hardly the picture of a glowing bride-to-be. Unless your definition of a glowing bride-to-be includes boxes of Kleenex and a nose as red as Rudolph’s.

I’ve had a full-blown sinus infection since Saturday. I’ve been pumping massive amounts of decongestants and antibiotics into my system, and I’m making progress, but slowly.

To make matters worse, my dear sweet little sister is in town with me, and instead of skipping around Manhattan, exploring and causing trouble and making public scenes (as my sister and I are wont to do when we’re together), we spend most evenings in my apartment propped up in bed, and she entertains me with various pooping stories (my sister’s pooping stories are some of the greatest I’ve ever heard) while I cough and blow my nose and whine.

All in all, it hasn’t been a great week. But I'd rather be sick this week than next, right?

More soon.

Oh no! Sorry you're not feeling well. I'm sure you'll be better before your wedding next week. :)

I'm sure that you'll shape up just in time for the wedding... nine days is still quite a bit of time. Where are you honeymooning??

Too bad about your sister visiting while you are sick, but as you point out, better now than next week. In 9 days you'll be fine!

I'm curious about the pooping stories...

It's GREAT news that this is hitting you now and not 8 days from now. By then it will have run its course and you'll feel like a million bucks!

Yes, sick this week is much, much better than next. Also, make sure you poop at some point before the wedding so there aren't any problems.

I like your blog! I'm new (I bet you could psychically tell that though.)Here are a few things I saw that we have in common: we are both getting married, agree that pre-fab wedding vows are corny, and we find pooping stories entertaining.

However, I must admit to you: I do not have a problem at all with pooping at work. If I have to go...well. I go. Fortunately for me, there's this special pooping, single toilet bathroom there--everyone uses it for this. There's even a book of matches on the sink.

Feel better!
