off sleeping, will be back in 8754 hours.

It seems as though I've developed a bit of a summer cold. well, more than a summer cold actually... it's bronchitis. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who gets THIS fucking sick in the middle of summer. it's absolutely ridiculous how horrible I feel. I feel constant pain in my chest, and it's even worse when I cough. I can't stand without feeling lightheaded, and my throat is on fire. needless to say, I've been trying to get plenty of rest. oh, and I haven't showered since Monday. I feel disgusting.

I started feeling sick on Sunday, and limited my activity to just doing things around the house. our neighbors were having a cookout, but I decided to stay in... mostly so I wouldn't get anyone else sick. Monday, I felt much much worse, and laid around all day. Tuesday was even more horrific, and after attempting to go to work, I left early and went to the doctor. She prescribed me antibiotics and cough syrup with codeine.

You'd think that codeine infused syrup would knock my ass out, but it didn't. I finally fell asleep Tuesday night around midnight and woke to my phone ringing at around 9:40... it was my dad calling to see if I was coming to work. He'd been sick over the weekend as well, and he had his day of complete rest on Tuesday. I told him I was taking a day off, and I got up, did some moseying around the house, and took a dose of cough syrup around noon. My ass slept until about 6:30 this evening. I don't feel much better, but I feel more rested, that's for sure. my throat is still killing me, and I'm still coughing up big chunks of bright green goodness.

I haven't decided on whether or not I'll be going to work tomorrow. I guess it depends on how I feel when I wake up. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up of why I haven't been around. and I'm really keeping my fingers crossed that the hubs doesn't get sick... he is such a miserable baby when he doesn't feel good. I guess I can't say anything, he's been taking really good care of me. :)

OH, and if you're feeling up to it - go here and vote for LiLu to be the first ever MTV VJ! if you need more details, click on her picture at the top of my sidebar. Dooooooo it!


  1. Summer colds are the worst. If it makes you feel any better, I didn't shower all weekend...and I wasn't even sick!

  2. haha, that DOES make me feel better! maybe I'm not as nasty as I thought I was! ;)

  3. Love your face!! And showering is the FIRST thing to go out the window when I'm sick... ;-)
