Almost Back to Normal?

I went to work for 1/2 day today and was convinced I was going to die by 9:45am. I left at 11, drove to Meijer where I got some orange juice, cookie dough, tissues, and I picked up a prescription. On the drive to Meijer, a few things happened:

1. I got unbearably HOT.
2. I couldn’t stop coughing.
3. My nose ran like crazy.
4. I became ravenously hungry.

The cold/flu whatever was breaking.

I finished in Meijer and went to Max & Erma’s and got my favorite meal for take out (BBQ Bacon Cheddar burger and Fries), came home, gobbled it up, downed two cups of OJ, and settled down to read and doze. Now I am feeling pretty close to normal save for the stuffy nose and clogged head, but at least I can breathe, sit up, and type without feeling like I’m going to pass out.

YAY for feeling better!

Now off to a quick shower and I’m heading downstairs to finish my Christmas cards and drink more orange juice. Tomorrow I’m going to the doctor just to make sure I’m okay, and to get my prescription reinstated. Thursday, I should be good as new for work. Yippee. :D It’ll be nice to live normally again. I’m really grateful that a couple of people at work were cool enough to help take up a lot of the slack for me–it really really took a load off. :)

‘Til next time…

My little guy is off to stay with his grandmommy until Christmas Eve. I’d planned on using a lot of this time to sit in bed on my laptop and write away.

1. I got sick.
2. My laptop got sick.
3. I’m still sick.

Needless to say, I haven’t been doing any writing seeing as I can’t really sit at the main computer for longer than a couple of hours at a time. BAH.

I hope this goes away soon. I’m missing MORE work which means that tomorrow will be a right nightmare (provided I make it in tomorrow).

Mr. Laptop, in the meantime, is at the Laptop Doctor getting all fixed up and I should have him back January 5, 2006 or so. Let’s just thank God that I have two computers, and hope that I get healthy soon so I can go back to living. There is so much I want to do, and being sick really throws a few monkey wrenches into the works.

I’m off to lie down again. I was awakened by a really kick a$$ dream by my husband needing me to get some pictures off of a memory card. :( All I have to say is–someone in my dream was playing Anywhere Is at TOP VOLUME. That topped it off–not to mention the other great things about it. Ah, Nyquil induced dreams. Gotta love them.

Off to try to get better. Byeee.

– tingly ears
– sore throat
– constant coughing (chest hurts when I cough)
– cannot breathe well at all (except through my mouth)
– headache
– when I lie down, I can’t breathe, nor can I stop coughing (I think Chris is about to kick me out of the bedroom!)
– my entire nose area hurts b/c I’ve gone through almost all the tissues and have resorted to paper towels and toilet paper!
+ I don’t feel as weak anymore

Should I stay home again? :(

**Cough Cough**

So, I’ve been sick like whoa and that pretty much shot my weekend to H-E-Double Hockey Sticks. Aidan is off to stay with his grandmother for two weeks. Before he left, he hugged and kissed me a million times and said “I’ll be back soon, Mommy.”

I slept most of yesterday. I honestly felt so horrible. There was so much I wanted to do: start wrapping presents, clean, go hang out with Rob (who was making steaks and mashed potatoes!)… but I could barely sit up without feeling dizzy and weak. So back to bed I went, and I stayed asleep until about 11:30am. I got up, bathed, and went to Best Buy. Mr. Laptop is gone until about January 5th! They’re going to try to fix it all up, though, so that will be good.

I also stopped in at Taylor Square, finished up most of my Christmas shopping (yay, all done itskels), picked up a few lots more decorations. Then I came home and rested a bit.

Holly and Robert came over about 3. I’d forgotten they were supposed to come over so I could fix their computer. It was majorly infected–lots of spyware and viruses. I cleaned it off the best I could, and their pop-up frequency went from an insane amount to none. So yay for me. :)

We ate and Holly helped me with some of the decorations. Now I’m feeling LOADS better (thank God) but will be turning in early so I can get through a full workday tomorrow. I’m still coughing a lot–so I won’t be surprised if they send me home again. I can’t smell a thing, I can’t taste a thing either. My nose is permanently stuffy. And did I mention the coughing? Yeah, it’s pretty much relentless. :

Anyway, I hope I feel better really soon, I have lots to do:

– Pay cable bill
– Buy stamps
– Mail 2nd round of Christmas cards
– Wrap presents
– Clean master bedroom
– Clean my closet
– Put away laundry
– Mail packages

**sigh** So much to do. Being sick really, really throws a monkey wrench in one’s productivity. At least I got to finish another book, though.

Woo Hoo for Saturday! (Pictures)

Check THIS out:

OH YEAH. I got to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire today!!!!! YAY for brother-in-laws who call radio stations and win screening passes, woohoo. My favorite quote from the move:

Crouch: The Chinese Fireball. Oooooo.

I’m definitely NOT going to give away any spoilers, but I do want to say that the guy who played Cedric Diggory… mm-hmm. HOT. The movie was good, definitely a LOT darker than previous versions. A lot was cut from the book–most of it I was glad about. Ha. I enjoyed it, and sat there thinking “I can’t even believe I’m sitting here watching this already!” And let me say that Ron’s first line in the film is hilarious, and there are some great dialogue exchanges that had me laughing out loud. GO SEE IT. Well, on Friday, like the rest of the little people (TOTALLY KIDDING!). It’s good stuff.

And look what else is happening to our house. Yes, this is our house/yard. OH DEAR.

YESSSS! It’s that time of year again and I am excited. I bought a Harry Potter ornament for the tree, and exactly ONE Christmas present so far. I’m going to start shopping tomorrow night during the Magical Night of Giving (Link) at Polaris Fashion Place. That should be really excting and fun. Yay! Also, Santa makes his debut, so hopefully I can get a picture of/with him.

Can you believe it? I am sick again. Nothing like before–but my throat’s been bothering me the past few days and I’m stuffy. :( So yeah, I’m glad it’s the weekend.

And… I know some of you keep telling me not to, but sometimes, I really AM tempted to give up a certain HUGE dream of mine. But we’ll see. This will probably pass again.

Hmm. I guess that’s all for now. Ack. It’s only 5:45ish and it’s already getting dark out. :( I miss the long days.


P.S. The Buckeyes kicked BOOTAY today!!!!

EDIT 7:01pm

The Christmas Lights are up. Yes, insanely early, but hey, in Ohio, we must take advantage of the nice weather! :)
