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.


Yep, I'm sick

And I seriously and truly HATE being sick. Granted, I don't really know anyone who LIKES to be sick, but there you go.

My nose is raw from blowing it :( Sore throat, sinus headache. Ugh. I have a very minor fever. Yesterday I went home early, took a nap (until UPS rang the doorbell, which woke me up) and then just played dead on the couch. At some point I got up, did the cat litter and took out the trash. But that was it. Oh and I made some soup. The kid had leftovers from the previous night.

I am thinking, that even though I can function at work at a low level - which I am doing currently - I am going to head home a couple hours early today. Start a load of laundry and take another nap.

See, tonight the Kid has his Winter concert. And I want to be rested enough for that.

So I am getting what I can get done at work. Which is just shipping and receiving stuff for today.

Also: Food for thought - Look at everything that has changed - most in such positive ways - in the last year!

And I am out of breath from doing normal every day things! Ugh! Hate this. A coworker suggested it's probably from my flight home. Maybe. At this point, it doesn't really matter.

But hey, at least I using up the last of my sick time!!

Anyway, I am heading home now, soooo tired. I need to stop and get some cough drops though.


A Quick Update

I'm back from my vacation!

I went from 84 degree sunshine to 24 degree snow. Good gods, what a change!

I am attempting to fight off a cold (probably from the cruise), which is why this is short!




I still have to download and catalog all the pictures I took :) Suffice it to say though, it was greatly needed, hugely appreciated and just plain awesome. Awesome.

It's all been surreal.

I am happy to be home though :)

I am grocery shopping tonight, putting that away, making dinner and stashing my ass on the couch to relax!

I will attempt to write more this week :)
