How I spent my sick day

| No Comments

Home today sick with a cold. Been sneezing a lot, especially at work, since Monday. Big, hearty sneezes that shake the walls. By 2:30pm Wednesday afternoon, I was dead-beat sleepy tired. By yesterday at lunchtime, my sinuses were a little stuffy, nose a little runny, and throat a tad sore. By bedtime last night, a little worse. This morning, a low-grade headache, congested sinuses, swollen throat. So I decided to take a sick day.

[sarcasm] A lovely way to spend the 3-day Labor Day weekend - laboring with a cold! [/sarcasm]

Morning: Made a pot of decaf coffee - hot stuff is good on the throat. Drank it with a package of sugar-free Nestle hot chocolate mix and CoffeeMate - yum. Checked work email and read the Hamster Time forum to catch up on Big Brother 7 All Stars 24-hour live feed recaps. Felt cold (it's supposed to be a hot day outside) and huddled with a blankie on the couch watching a 2-hour Fear Factor featuring reality stars getting another 15 minutes of fame. Was trying to nap in bed when hubby called to say he'd be coming by in an hour or so with a Mocha Frap from Starbucks for me - icy stuff is good on the throat too.

Afternoon: Napped until hubby walked through the front door and woke me up - I think I heard myself snore just before I woke up! Hmmm, must be the cold since I don't snore... Tried to find something on TV while drinking my yummy Mocha Frap. Daytime television sucks so I returned to the BB7 forum where not much is going on. Tried to find some interesting recently BB7 videos on YouTube that I hadn't already seen. Found a video of the latest ImproveEverywhere mission. For the umpteenth time today, checked my work email. Added more movies to our Blockbuster queue. Began writing this entry 20 minutes ago and finished the Mocha Frap...

Fascinating so far.
