Thank the Gods it's Friday

Still sick. My face hurts. Stupid sinuses.

But! It's FRIDAY!! I get to sleep in tomorrow and just rest. And of course, I have really been wanting to sweep and mop the downstairs, vacuum the upstairs. Then, THEN - I will be happier :) Oh and do the cat litter - knew I forgot something last night!

I just did the Neti Pot for my sinuses, it helped. I feel like face exploding sensations dwindle, so that's a win.

I am half asleep though it seems. I did take some DAY time medicine and it just sorta kicks my butt. Maybe I can nap in the warehouse or something. I know that at lunch I have to run an errand (deposit money for the band) and that's it. Maybe I will leave early today as well and just use up the rest of my sick time.

So, the concert last night - it went well :) Of course, listening to the 6th grade band is always painful. PAINFUL. But you hear a marked difference in 7th and again in 8th grades when they play. Which was pointed out to me and it's true and it's probably a really good thing that you can hear that difference. It shows how much kids learn :)

Afterwards, got the Kid some hot chocolate since it was freezing outside and headed home. I went to bed early (the Kid late) due to this lovely cold/flu thingy I have. I had toast for dinner.

I hate being sick. Ugh.

It supposed to snow again on Saturday, another 2-4". I'm tempted to get some salt for my side walk and by my car. Oh and I need to take my car in for an oil change too. Hmmm, maybe I can get that done tonight before I go home so I don't have to worry about it.

Today is the final day to finish my work personal eval. Oh the joys of that! I've been here since the end of March. Thankfully I've already met the vast majority of my goals. Score Me :)

I swear the Kid got taller while I was away. I am cutting his hair this weekend, per his request. I need to get the back of mine trimmed too. Just not right now. I also need to get waxed. I will see if I can get that done NEXT weekend when I don't feel like a zombie.

I am also wrapping presents this weekend. I guess I will lock myself in my room or something to get that done. Though walking the freaking stairs while sick makes me out of breath. So.

I weighed myself this morning, back down to my pre-vacation weight which is good :) Now, it's all about figuring out how to lose another 25-30 lbs. I got out my Tai Chi DVD the other day, and once I'm not all snot nosed sick, I plan on doing that every day. It will at least get me moving in some form during the winter. This spring and summer will be busy because of all the yard work that I will be doing. And I will be able to start walking again on my breaks because it won't be freezing then. I do hope the summer heat doesn't get extreme though.

Someone just said my tea smells weird. Huh. I can't smell so who knows.

Ok, back to work my dears.


  1. I hope the cold/flu thing is better. It actually sounds too miserable to be just a cold, though colds can be bad. Sounds more like, at the very least, cold w/ secondary infection, though it might be flu. Get better.

    The band thing is weird. I don't see how fifth and sixth grade bad directors do their jobs. They're somewhat musical people by definition if they have music degress, which most of them must have. It seems as though it would be sheer torture for them to come to work every day to have to listen to fifth- and sixth- graders mangle their instruments. Maybe they live for the improvement they see by the end of the year.

    1. I am starting too :) I got antibiotics (sinus infection and bronchitis. Joys!)

      I couldn't do it, that's for sure. When I hear them though, it makes me want to volunuteer my time to help their brass - like have sectionals or something. Because, yikes!! His band direction is freaking awesome. She has so much patience and is so good with the kids. My Kid loves band, and I am really thankful he has such a great director :) I think the personal growth these kids must go throuh would be pretty impactful. I don't know. I have a hard time listening to the younger kids play but I do love it as they get better :) The price of music ;)
