So, I’ve been sick now for almost a week and have been completely incapable of doing anything more than coughing, sneezing, and blowing my nose. I’ve been living on the couch for most of the day and spending endless hours watching mostly-bad tv through mostly-closed eyelids. Judge shows in the morning…talk shows in the afternoon…I really need to get a life. I tried reading but the throbbing inside my head compounds itself every time I focus on the page. I’ve been living on white rice, jello, and ginger ale while M is at work. The weather has been gorgeous and I’m irritated that I can’t be spending time outside enjoying the Indian summer. My usual haughtiness has been replaced by downright crankiness and if I have to delve into my medicinal goodie bag one more time for cold remedies I think I’m going to have a cow. Even the dog doesn’t want to be around me right now.
Hopefully this cold is on its way out and I can get back to my regularly scheduled programming. In the meantime, Oprah comes on at 4 and I’m thinking about squeezing a nap in before then.
