My Mom always used to say that I was like my Grandma (her Mom), because I hated being sick. I found it to be a complete waste of time and very unproductive. Why lie around in bed, when there are so many other things I could be doing!?
Well, a recent diagnosis put me on a 5 day isolation from anything that I love doing in NYC. That meant my Dad's trip to NYC was cancelled and so were our tickets to "Kinky Boots" and "The Book of Mormon."
I found this childhood photo, where my parents had tucked me into bed and I wasn't having it. However, you have to enjoy all the great 80's toys in this photo: I'm wearing a Popples nightgown, in She-Ra bed sheets, with a Butterbear from "The Wuzzles" plush and a "Pillow Pal" (just like DJ Tanner had in "Full House") and a Starlite horse from "Rainbow Brite."
Even if I can't go outside, at least I can stare out my window at the sun and update my blog.
