I'm sick down here

I got my usual case of Spring semester bronchitis REALLY early this year -- before classes started. I had my first three classses yesterday, but I had to leave after the second one because I was so sick (let's just say, I almost *threw up ON Dean Wormer). I even had to call in an ex-favor and get Blanton to pick up Jeffrey at work. *Animal House reference.

I parked on the couch at 12:30 piled up with blankets, and ! only moved to go to the restroom. I finally brought out all the drugs and put them on the coffee table so I wouldn't have to move. My fever broke last night (after two more episodes with Dean Wormer) and two Robin WIlliams "two exits, no waiting" episodes.

It sucks being the only adult in the house when you're sick. I STILL have to get Jeffrey to work. I still have to get my own meds. I still have to cook for myself (I didn't. I drank apple juice and ate bananas).

ACK.

So you should come back in a few days when I'm better. Go see what Kate (GF Gobsmacked) and GF Steve are doing witht his lovely little crescent roll mix that has been on the Celiac site...

much love, and all that

I hope you feel better soon. The kids and I tend to get sick when Andy's working - so he's not even home in the evening to take care of us. That landed Braden and I in the hospital once when I was pregnant.

Look at the bright side, at least you can be sick alone and watch TV. Hendley wouldn't cut me any slack the whole time I was feeling bad! :-)
