Just Feel Better.

There's a horrible bug going around these parts at the moment. Influenza? Nope. Swine Flu? Pah! This one is much more frightening than that.

It's called man flu.

Symptoms include sniffling, coughing, a feeling of general malaise and a whole lot of whining. Be careful folks, because it looks like it's going around!

No, I jest. In all seriousness, Jason wasn't bad at all - he was just a little crook for a few days, and is already (rather frustratingly) back to his usual chipper self. Unfortunately, this wasn't before he managed to pass on his germs to his unsuspecting fiancé, who typically can't get rid of the darned cold.

As a result, I've become a bit of a hermit this lovely Saturday evening. I can't even drown my sorrows with comfort food either; this wretched cold has run away with my taste buds, which is terribly inconvenient. After all, it does seem like an awful waste of calories to indulge in a bowl of ice-cream that tastes like, well, nothing. I've resorted to watching Charmed reruns instead to pass the time, which leads to a really important question - how does Piper have such shiny hair all the time?

In other random news, we've been engaged exactly two weeks today. I sort of hope time continues to speed along at this rate, because that means I'll be closer to having my real engagement ring back! It still all feels like a bit of a blur, since I had the ring in my possession for less than 24 hours before it was returned to go on its resizing journey - so it'll be like a new present all over again when I get it back.

I wonder if the excitement will ever fade?

Men are so whiny when they get the flu. I hope you feel better soon!

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks and that it's only been 2 weeks all at the same time! I've planned so much it feels like it should be 2 months! When do you get your ring back?? Soon I hope!

I still look at my ring all the time because it makes me so happy, and I've had it for over two years. I know, ask me again in another 50 years, but for now? Adore.

Men are awful when they are sick. Seriously awful.

I've been married for 5 years, and I still love looking at my engagement ring.

I think you'll always love it.

I hate it when I get a cold that takes away the flavor of food. That's the worst. And congrats on your engagement!

We have been engaged four weeks as of today and I am still as excited as I was four weeks ago! I think I love my ring a little more each day, also. It's wonderful :)

The excitement won't fade. I have been engaged almost 8 months and still stare at my ring everyday. I can't believe how beautiful it is.

I hope you feel better soon! When my fiance gets sick, he denies that he is sick and NEVER whines. (very annoying!)Then he gets over it really quickly and passes it to me. I whine a lot and it usually takes me twice as long to get over it.

i don't think the excitement ever really fades, maybe just gets better when the actual wedding/marriage happens :)
