It’s supposed to be spring but it’s 14 degrees celcius outside and I’m sitting at my computer with my crocheted rug over my knees. I’m at home today sick like I was yesterday and thanks to the doctor’s certificate, tomorrow as well. It’s really annoying as I was sick a couple of weeks ago and had to cancel a night out. Last Saturday night I wasn’t feeling the best but a friend had a party on and I didn’t want to miss it. I dosed up on Sudafed and went along. I must say I didn’t feel in the best party mood but did manage to do ok and even had a dance at 4.30 in the morning when I went to drag my friend away after a couple of hours sleep in the car. I was getting so cold I couldn’t stay in the car any longer. I hadn’t drank anything for some time so drove back to my friends place a few kilometres down the road. I think the Sudafed were still doing their thing though. I guess I could have lived without going to the party but I would have regretted it at the time.
Jaycee Junior was over at my parents place courtesy of my sister so I didn’t have him back till Sunday afternoon and we promptly sat down and watched Monster Inc for the nth time. He’d already seen it once that day so must have thought it was his lucky day. As anyone who is a parent knows, it’s damn hard looking after an active kid when you are sick.
Today I’ve watched Dr Phil and learnt about being sexually confident and then I watched Oprah and learnt how to find my inner sexpot. All the while I was sitting on the couch in my not so sexy warm clothes, including a cardigan, while knitting a scarf. At least my cardigan, or sweater, doesn’t have appliqued pumpkins on it like a woman did on the Oprah show.
I’ve promised my dog that whether it’s raining or not I will take her to the oval today before I pick Jaycee Junior up from childcare and give her a run. Because I’ve been feeling sick for the last few days she hasn’t been out the back yard for exercise. Lucky she’s got room to run up and down the side barking at cars driving down the laneway next to my house.
