Here we are again folks, sick. Seems hubby and I are on the short track to sinus infection land, with a side of more head cold. It feels like someone is roto-rootering my sinuses with a wire brush dipped in battery acid. And in general I feel like crap. Again.
Now before we proceed with some venting and contemplation on the Internet, I must warn you that I am drugged. I took a full dose of some codeine cough syrup, and I don't really notice a difference other than the lack of coughing. I also took Mucinex and Sudafed and Advil. But considering I don't feel THAT different makes me realize just how messed up my head is right now. I mean I couldn't even remember the name of my hair salon earlier. That's sad.
Anyway, commence with the diatribe!
In an effort to put a little more oomph in my mental attack against the evil in my head, I am burning used tissues in the wood stove. I figure the germs might get scared and go away. Maybe.
I am eating canned green beans. The only reason we have them around is canned green beans + dijon vinaigrette + feta = yummy easy "bring a side" food. Otherwise they suck. But today I don't feel like cooking and even a bowl of garlic soup or veggie hot and sour soup sounds bad. So warmed up canned green beans, with their minimal but present vitamins, it is.
I am surfing "Icanhazcheezburger" which is a silly site also known as "LOL cats". I think I have looked at a hundred pages, and I am still entertained.
I am sitting next to the wood stove on what has been the warmest day of the week. It's 83 degrees (says the thermometer at my feet) and I am in expedition weight fleece pants, two shirts, and alpaca wool socks. And I am just barely warm. For reference we usually keep our house around 65 degrees.
I am looking forward to hubby coming in from "work" so he can entertain me by playing video games. This usually bores me to pieces.
Fourth cup of tea. Second liter of water. Since noon.
Hmmm that is about all I can think of at the moment. I am trying not to feel too low about it all. Too much energy to go to bed. No interesting books to read, at least none that I can only half pay attention to since my brain is in la la land. So back to LOL cats I suppose. Some hot tub later when it gets dark. ::SIGH:: I just wish I could take some magic potion to knock me out until tomorrow, when I would wake up all better.
