Home Sick :(

Home Sick

I'm sick! It's so unfair. Last night when Sonali was over, my throat was feeling a little scratchy. When I woke up this morning, it really hurt to talk and swallow. Plus, my ears feel like there are balloons inside them.

I had to go to the doctor and she told me I have a bad cold and an ear infection. I was really excited because I love that pink medicine they give you for ear infections, but the doctor told me I was old enough to start taking pills. I felt so nervous, because I've never swallowed a pill before. Luckily, it went down just fine with some water.

I'll probably be stuck in bed for a few days. My mom was really nice and showed me how to watch Netflix movies on my laptop. I'm watching Free Willy! Ouch, my ears hurt when I laugh!

Do you have any favorite books or movies you think I should read or watch while I'm sick?


  1. I am so sorry you are home sick Inky. I kind of know how it feels .. I am home with a broken leg. I love the Ice Age movies myself .. they are funny ones. And books .. I am a total Twilight fan .. or American Girl books are good. LOL!!

    Ta Ta Ha Ha,

  2. *hug* I hate being sick too--I hope you get well soon!
    For movies, one of my favourites is Sabrina, a really old Audrey Hepburn film. It's really funny because of all the drama, and the clothes are beautiful!
    Get better soon!

  3. I'm so sorry that you are sick, Inky! Being home sick is the worst, especially when there are fun things going on that you are missing.
    I love funny books, like the Ramona book series! I also love Ballet Shoes, have you ever read it? I think you would love it.

  4. We're sorry you're sick, Inky! It looks like you've got a nice Ugly Doll to keep you company, though. That's so cool that your Mom showed you how to watch movies on your laptop. For movie ideas, maybe you could watch a ballet movie? (Since you love ballet!). How about "Ballet Shoes"?

  5. I'm so sorry your sick, I hate being sick!
    My favorite tv show is I-Carly, my favorite movie & books are still Harry Potter, I also love to read trashy fashion magazines,hope you feel better soon.

  6. Aww, Get Well Soon, Inky!

    I think you probably already know what my favorite movie is - "Amélie"! I don't know how many times I've seen it now, but I never seem to tire of it at all.

    I also really enjoy fun little films like "The Parent Trap" and "Harriet the Spy." I think I love Harriet the best simply because she's a lot like me, or maybe it's the other way around. I do keep a notebook just as she does. I really love the book, too, although I haven't read it for a while. I haven't read much of anything lately besides Harry Potter. Oh, have you read The Lovely Bones? Laura finally finished that herself, and I think that'll be next on my list to read when I get home.

    And, ooh, I really enjoy the National Treasure movies, especially when I'm sick. Those are two I manage to get sucked into every time so I'm able to temporarily forget any pain I might be experiencing.

    Okay, yes, my name is Sophie, and I am addicted to movies, I will admit it.

    Anyway, feel better soon!


  7. We were sick a couple of weeks ago and it was not fun! Tía likes to read aloud to us and she read Anne of Green Gables. It's like our 3rd time reading it! ;) Get well soon!

  8. Hi Inky- Did you ever mix the pink liquid with ice cream? I thought it tasted BAD and mixing it with ice cream helped it go down. Tupper

  9. Hi my dad is Russian so we sort of celebrate Russian holidays. Like we put up a tree on New Year etc.
    So sorry your sick :( I have a cold.
    I have lots of play mobile too!

  10. I hope you feel better, Inky! I hate being sick. Get well, soon.

    Hmmm, movies? I admit, I'm a fan of the Harry Potter Series. I like funny films, like The Parent Trap, that Sophie already mentioned.

  11. Hope you feel better soon, Inky! I hate getting sick. :(
    I always watch old Disney movies when I'm feeling bad; like the original Parent Trap, Swiss Family Robinson, movies like that!

  12. I am sick too! i listen to my ipod instead cough.... bye gwen

  13. Oh I'm sorry you're sick! I hope you feel better and you're up and about and your usual jolly self!


  14. Oh gosh, I hope you feel better soon! I like the pink medicine much better than cough medicine! I also only don't mind small pills. I've seen a really big one before-how someone could swallow it, I don't know.

  15. Oh-The Mighty Ducks is a classic. So are Homeward Bound and Balto and The Land Before Time :)

  16. Sorry you're sick Inky! hope you go back to your usual self! Oh and a good movie to watch withs lots of laughs is Opposite Day. It's very supspensing. You can get it on Netflix!

  17. If u like Disney you could watch The Lion King, it is really good! A book is The Pain and The Great One! It's a really good book!

  18. Oh no! You're sick? I hope you get well soon, Inky! I like watching movies with my mom, Kaya, my aunt, and my cousins. One of my favorites was the McKenna movie. My favorite part of it was Stealthy Toulane.

    Get well soon,
