i hate being sick.  if i'm hurt, i usually brush it off.  if i'm upset, i cry and it's over.  when i'm sick, i turn into a whiny 3 year old.  and it lasts a long time.  and all i want is my mommy.

thursday i felt it come on.  isn't that the worst?  when you know you're getting sick and there is nothing you can do about it?  so when friday came around, i was a mess.  and all i wanted was soup.  i'm not the biggest fan of tomato soup, but my basil plant is going crazy, and i love basil, so i made tomato basil soup.  i had a can of stewed tomatos and got a can of crushed tomatos and whole tomatos.  i quickly sautéed some garlic in some olive oil, added the tomatos, a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.  after that i added a handful of chopped basil, 1/4 cup of whipping cream and it was amazing.  for real, it was just what i needed.  and i ate off of it for 4 days.

fast forward to today... i'm still not feeling amazing, but whatever.  i had orientation at eku today, and tomorrow is orientation at the va.  i'm nervous to say the least, and i'm glad that i'll have one of the girls from my class with me, so at least i'll know someone!

tomorrow's post should be interesting.... say a prayer it goes well!
