Whining and Bored

I sincerely hope I never come down with a fatal disease. If I am THIS CRABBY with a simple head cold, I can't imagine how I'd behave if I were really sick.

I took a high-powered cold tablet at 1 p.m. yesterday. Next thing I knew it was dinnertime. I woke up feeling 100% better...and at midnight I was still awake. I finally went to sleep (after watching RED DRAGON for the sixty-eleventh time) and woke up at nine this morning feeling almost as crappy as I felt yesterday morning at this time.

I rarely get sick. In fact I brag about this on a regular basis. People can be dropping like flies all around me and I won't have so much as a sniffle. I always believed that working as nurse for so many years has given me an immune system of Herculean proportions. I've never had the flu in my entire adult life. This simple cold, however, has knocked me on my ass. Being knocked on my ass means I am bored beyond belief.

I don't do well with boredom, either. I once quit a job because I could pass meds on 45 patients without ever having to look at a chart.

So this morning I took a "non-drowsy" cold tablet instead. I swear if I sneeze one more time I'll splatter brain matter out my ears.

BOO!

I watched Red Dragon for the sixty-eleventh time last night too. Hannibal might be scarier, but Francis has haunted me more, over the years.

Boo all over this stupid cold. It's not even a bad cold, and yet it feels so UGH...it's just stupid. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Ugh, colds suck! *hugs* Hope you get better soon!

And I totally know what you mean about sickness causing boredom. I got my wisdom teeth out recently and was only able to be lazy for two days before getting antsy enough to work on stuff!

I'm antsy now, but sorely lacking in energy. Sigh.

(I have one wisdom tooth left that needs to be pulled, but after my last experience I'm in serious denial)

I got all my wisdom teeth pulled at once, so that way, if it was a sucky experience, I wouldn't have to worry about going through it again! *hee*

Good luck finding some energy!

Jen, what a lovely picture of you! :) (just kidding!) I hate getting sick too, and I've had the flu and it sucks. Hope you feel better. Just relax, have the kids wait on you and watch tv. Sounds like a great day to me!
