What I Learned from being SICK with a UTI Last Week

  • I am going to die some day. That day is probably not tomorrow.
  • Reading takes more energy than watching Netflix.
  • I can almost forget I am sick if I am talking to someone. (Or: Just in case you were wondering, yes, I am an extrovert.)
  • I know Renee Zellweger has lots of issues. And I don’t want to be her. But maybe if I could have been her just when she filmed Bridget Jones’ Diary. Because Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
  • My real-life husband who did the kid-driving and grocery shopping and laundry and dishes and cooking for the whole week is sexier than Colin Firth and Hugh Grant put together.
  • I still want my mom when I am sick. (And lucky for me, she still wants to take care of me when I’m sick.)
  • In the throes of illness, I can come up with some great sermon ideas. Putting those ideas into a coherent sermon, however, is another story.
  • The world will not stop without my full participation. Even the church will will not grind to a halt because I’m living on my couch.
  • Missing a meeting (or 5) is not the end of the world.
  • Having a job I can do from home is both a blessing and a curse.
  • Sometimes the first round of antibiotics doesn’t work.
  • When the first round of antibiotics doesn’t work, I barely care that I’ve wasted my life watching HGTV all day.
See. I am totally not making it up about my husband.

  1. I watched Bridget Jones’ Diary recently, and… yes. (I won’t comment about your husband. I’ll stick to watching CF & HG on a screen.) Hope you are feeling well by now.
