Up Next on Sick Sad World





So this is me. This is what I look like right now, only not as much color. In fact, take away the red cheeks and add some gray roots. Make sure to draw really dark circles around the eyes, the eyes with a vacant stare; the kind of stare where you're not sure if I'm all there, but I am. Also ,make sure that it is completely clear that the sun in the background is flipping me off.

So a week ago Sunday I started feeling a little tickle in the back of my throat. By Thursday morning I was totally bed-ridden. Well, couch-ridden at least. I slept the whole day. Friday I had Bean with me so, well, let's just say we watched a lot of Daniel Tiger and Curious George. Saturday was pretty much the same as Friday. Sunday I thought I felt better, then I took a shower and realized I had spent all my energy for the day in the shower. I was too sick and woozy to even drive The Boy to his basketball game. Yesterday I was couch-bound, slept most of the day, but felt good enough to go grocery shopping, but I think I may have shopped one too many aisles because when I got home I could hardly get it together to cook dinner,

I've been drinking hot tea like nobody's business. I make sure to eat, although I don't have much of an appetite. I smell like vapor rub. I sang Soft Kitty to myself a few times just to make me feel better. None of the cold meds I've been taking have been working, or if they are working, I'd hate to see how I'd feel if I hadn't been taking anything. We've been ordering take-out because either I can't stand long enough to cook or I don't want to touch anything my kids touch.

I can't decide what's worse; having a job and having to take a week off because I'm sick or being so sick I can't drive or even walk 1 block to Walgreens just a few days after my services were released into the industry. If it has to be the latter, I hope I coughed near a few choice people. And I hope I didn't cough on others.

I have confidence in Tomorrow, though. Tomorrow is Wednesday. On Wednesdays we dance Hula . We are learning new things this month and I can't miss it. I won't miss it. Tonight is my last night to be sick. You hear that, body? Tonight is my last night to be sick. I will wake up tomorrow morning so super healthy no one will ever believe I was sick.

Nice Pictures - Where'd you steal them from?

Some of the pictures in my blog were taken by a photographer called Julie Michele. Some of the pictures were either taken by me or someone I know. Some of the pictures were ripped right from the internet, mostly from google image searches from photographers to whom I may or may not give credit.

Rest assured I make no money from any of it.
