smoky topaz visits

when i'm not feeling well, this is what i really want:
  • to be able to stay in my jammies all day

  • to drink ginger ale (vernors)

  • to drink juice

  • to be in possession of soft tissues

  • to have an ample amount of benadryl to knock me out at night

  • to have a steady supply of interesting movies to watch while I doze on the couch

  • to already have ample groceries in the house, so i don't have to go anywhere

  • to feel better

this is how it's really going:

  • cannot stay in jammies all day. technically not sick enough to warrant using paid time off. work might frown on my choice in jammies.

  • drank vitamin water that i brought to work. brought two today, as one wasn't enough yesterday. oh, the thirst!

  • soft tissues are plentiful. small blessings.

  • benadryl is doing the trick at night, but getting "into" bed early is about a 50/50 gamble at this point.

  • had to get groceries/sick supplies after work earlier this week.

  • feeling slightly cloudy, less than focused, with some aches. dry cough. my voice sounds like i've been smoking 2 packs of cigs a day since i was 12.

  • feeling grateful that i'm not as sick as i was this time last year. i was down for the count for a few days with a ridiculous cough.

  • also grateful that i have not been kidnapped by a mexican drug cartel.

Ohh...sickly. And I was JUST thinking, "I wonder if Rachie succcombed to the sickness?"

And, right on about that last point. It should be noted that things could always be worse.
