Last Monday, around 1:45pm, I started to get sick. My throat hurt, and I got progressively weaker as the day progressed. By Tuesday morning, I was so fog-headed that I called off work. For some reason, Chris decided not to take Aidan to the sitter, so I had to watch him all day guarenteeing me NO rest. I was not happy. The Grove was Tuesday night, and although I felt like a big sack of poop, I dragged myself there because if I didn’t show, there would be no Power Point! After a few minor mishaps, I got the hang of that Live Worship program and everything went off without a hitch. It was nice being in the mezzanine because I wasn’t feeling particularly social.
Wednesday, I stayed home again. This time, Aidan went to his grandmother’s and I slept for hours. It felt great. I also got to skip a day of meetings at work. During Life Group, Craig gave me a HUGE bag of assorted Reese’s candies. That made me smile. But I started to feel so crappy that we left early, and I climbed right into bed. I knew I couldn’t take another day off of work, I was going to be way behind. And I was right. Thursday was horrible because I wasn’t feeling all that great and I had SO MUCH work to do. I had to skip lunch and rush and answer 384798 questions and there was so much paperwork and so many files and how could I have forgotten about all the crap that was due on Tuesday, the day I missed? ACK. Friday was better though, and I even took lunch. It felt good when someone said “now here’s a face we haven’t seen in a while!”
Friday night, I hung out at Jennifer’s (maids). She lives WAY in the country and I was looking forward to trying to photograph the meteor shower. Unfortunately, it rained and was overcast. So much for the astrological photo shoot. So Jennifer and I went to Best Buy where Aidan threw a major fit. We left Best Buy pretty quickly, and headed to Skip’s Family Restaurant which was SUPER YUMMY. Then we went to Target. I had way too much fun there. I bought one of those combination ceramic flat/curling irons. I really like it. Ceramic is awesome, and it heats up so quickly. Yummy flatirons.
Anyway, back to Jennifer’s we headed, where we exchanged music and acted silly with our computers. Our song for the night was “Goldigger” by Kanye West. GOOD TIMES, let me tell you. Honestly, we each lose 15 IQ points when we get together. It’s so fun.
Saturday, I slept most of the day (relapse of the sickness) while Chris took Aidan to his parents where they watched the Ohio State game. And just let me say that my son is OBSESSED with the Buckeyes. Locally, there is a remix of Hollaback Girl put to some OSU band music. It’s pretty sweet. Aidan makes me play it over and over and over and over. You should check it out. Get it here: CLICK!
Saturday night, we went to Chris’s High School reunion. It was interesting to see all these people he’d talked about over the years. I had a good time, actually. Especially when they played “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” I happen to LOVE that song. Oh yes. And…a really pretty girl said that she and her friend were saying “Chris’s wife is HOT.” HAHA. I must admit, I did look cute, especially here:
The Johnstown High class of 1995 – 10 years later.
Chris is the red-eyed dork in the back center. HA.
And believe it or not, the girl on the floor in the white top has FIVE children. Isn’t it freakin’ amazing how great she looks??
Sunday, we went to church and came home and lazed around. I made Chris cook his YUMMY chili for lunch, but it gave me terrible heartburn. Chris hooked his computer back up and we had to jump through some hoops to get it set up properly. I relaxed and Aidan relaxed and it was good. We all went to bed fairly early.
Yesterday was busy as all bananas at work!!! It was crazy. Being a tracker of about 3487389 different projects is hard and more and more are coming. In addition, proofs are coming and filing will need to commence VERY SOON and say, the copy machine and I are going to become very close. Today wasn’t as bad, but tomorrow is meeting day. I’m honestly going to look into bowing out of some of them–I have way too much to do to be sitting in meetings all day.
What is up with iTunes, coming out with updates every other day it seems? And honestly, does it HAVE to make me install Quicktime every single time??? *sigh*
Ronni (9:27:29 PM): lucy is puking

Ronni (9:30:35 PM): I KNOW

More than once
And you looked as sincere as a dog
Autumn is most definitely here. The trees have peaked and now the leaves are starting to fall off. I am really bummed that I was too sick to enjoy the nice days we had last week. I would have loved to take some pictures. Now, it’s back to rain rain rain grey grey grey again. And COLD. I’ve got my winter coat out, along with a hat and a scarf. It’s windy and the morning temperatures have been in the 30s. How sad. I miss the summer.
But at least gas prices are dropping. I got it today for $2.29!!!
I can’t find my iPod. Last time I remember seeing it was early Saturday morning, when I got back from Jennifer’s and decided to bring it inside so I could load music on it. So I KNOW it’s in the house somewhere. WHERE is the question. SIGH.
I FINALLY finished Julia Quinn’s latest novel It’s In His Kiss. Only one more Bridgerton book to go. It will be so weird, reading books by her that don’t star that family. You know I love? When authors have characters from their other books make cameo appearances. Caroline Mackler does it, and Julia Quinn definitely does it. I’d like to do that as well, if I could ever get the discipline to write another novel. *sigh* I’m not even going to go there, though. It’s gotten to the point where I am afraid to open the mailbox for fear of yet another rejection…
But I digress…
I wonder if I am just being overly sensitive or if certain things I am picking up on are actually true. That’s all I’m going to say about that for now. Just know that even though I try not to care, I can’t help but to do so. And that sucks.
I can’t believe it’s already after 11. Time goes so quickly, all the time. Even at work. My days fly by and I think it helps that I don’t mind the job. Evenings speed by because of Aidan being so darned entertaining (the boy is so smart and I LOVE it) and reading and projects and whatnot.
I should go to bed, though. Morning will be here before I know it. ‘Til next time…
