When you are sick and your husband is diligently studying for his comprehensive exams to get his PhD? You must throw out a lot of food that didn't get either cooked or eaten. You must clean up tissues and papers strewn throughout the house. You must start over planning meals.
Thankfully, you feel better (I feel better) and can count all the wonderful things that happen even when you are sick and your husband is studying for exams. I am quite lucky, even while recovering from being sick!
