Home Sick

I'm home sick. I still feel like crap.. i.e. my nose won't work, my face feels puffy, my ears feel whack, and I'm coughing up things that should not be coughed up.

I'm getting seriously sick of being sick. I was sick on Thanksgiving, I was sick in January, and here we are again. Full circle. Being the insane hypochondriac that I am, I'm about to bust into my doctors office and claim that something is terribly wrong with me and attacking my immune system every month.

I know I'm a hypo, but seriously- is my immune system really that bad? I remember being sick once tops in years past. If I don't get over this fast- I'm calling 9-1-1 and heading straight to the nursing home.

To top it all off, I had a nightmare in which I was bitched out by boss for taking today off. Great, can't wait to see her tomorrow.

In other, more romantic news (ha) Snap finally slept with me last night. Now, Snap- he's freakin' adorable, but he's not very cuddly. He will tolerate being held for about 5 minutes before worming his way out of reach. Last night, my dear, darling Snap, cuddled right up under my arm and slept. Today, Sage has been laying the smack down- jealously I presume. That's her spot.

Unfortunately I only have one arm to spare every night. Boyfriend needs some attention too.

I called the dentist- my tooth cannot be fixed today. I'm slightly bummed, since I'm already off--but I'm getting over it. I'm not so sure I would want to mix Novocaine mouth with stuffy nose and whack ears.

Aw, sorry you're sick. I don't think there's anything wrong with your immune system -- you just work with kids 5 days a week. And kids are gross. Wash your hands like a madwoman and never touch your face. Lysol and Purell are your friends.

Kids are gross.. I'm off to buy an economy size bottle of Purell.
