It's not several times a week, but...

...Since Eddie was lamenting the decline of the blog, I thought I'd regale you with another boring post.

I'm not sure what the deal is this winter, but I've been sick TWICE. I rarely get sick, I even got a flu shot this year, and yet? Sick. The first round was a cough that defied all over the counter cough medicine and would only respond to Robitussin with codeine, which was great. I'm a fan of the codeine. The most recent round started on Tuesday night and has resulted in body aches that defy all over the counter pain medication, as well as a fever and chills. It's so much fun, especially when I have about 5 big deadlines at work this week, therefore, I've dragged my ass into the office the past two days until today when they pretty much sent my outwardly sniffly ass home. I love when people are trying to be sympathetic and are like "Oh sweetie, you look like shit." I'm not sensitive enough to be offended by that, it just makes me laugh.

Stay tuned for future posts about my health -- I'll tell you all about my gout and arthritis. Neither of which I have, by the way, but isn't that what old people talk about?

Next week, I'm headed to somewhere in middle America for our annual company meeting, and so I've been shopping for clothes befitting the corporate marketing girl. Jeans are fine for the office, but at the meeting, jeans are not allowed. I'm also getting my hair colored before I go, because I can't be introduced to the entire company with ROOTS. Nobody wants to be that girl.

I had help with my clothes shopping this weekend - Chris' daughters were with me and his seven year old helped me pick out some stuff. It was pretty funny when she's looking at me very seriously and saying "That color looks GREAT on you". Too cute. The three year old helped me sign the credit card keypad, which resulted in my last name being completely illegible, but she wanted to help and I wasn't about to say no. Especially after she drew me a picture and even wrote my name on it. His girls are totally cute and sweet and we had a great time.

Anyway, that's about it for now. I'm going to heat up some soup and drink some Gatorade -- last night I had Chris here to take care of me, but tonight I'm on my own. I'll have to actually get up off the couch when I want something. Hmmph.

Thank you, Kettle.

Don't mix it up and heat up the Gatorade, because that would not taste good at all...

Cheryl said...

So the most important question...did you get those roots taken care of? :) Hope you're feeling better - I had that stupid cold too and it sucked!

Yay, Amber is still alive. Is it just me, or dis Carl get a shave and haircut, cause he looks a lot like David Beckham cleaned up like that. I'm just saying.

Oh, if you need a copy of the 2007 Boyfriend Specifications and Code Requirements, I can get you an advanced copy. I'm down like that.
