Being Sick Makes Me Boring

People at my office rarely, if ever, take sick days. It is so strange to me. If you are sick, you should stay home. So I am at home today because I went to work all last week with my hacking cough and blazing forehead, and I am just not getting better. Yesterday, I woke up, went to church, came home and slept for three hours, ran some errands, slept 8 more errors, and still felt like death warmed over this morning, so here I am at home today. I have done 18 minutes of work today so far, and I think that is going to be all. I think what will really make me feel better is watching the first DVD of Project Runway Season 1 (which I have never seen before) and drinking Cranapple on the couch while admiring our new Christmas tree.

That is right. For the first time, H and I have a Christmas tree, and it looks pretty darn good. I will post some pictures tonight so that you can all be jealous. You will be especially jealous of the tree skirt, which I bought at the No Coast Craft show, where I met up with Stefanie, who got to meet H for the first time. [I really love prepositions when I am sick.]

I was feeling a little better Friday night and Saturday. H and I went to a friend's house on Friday night, where I served my Better Than Sex cake (alternate title: Better-Than-Sex-With-Anyone-But-H Cake)(recipe by Guinness Girl). And Saturday night, we went out to dinner with some friends in St. Paul. So I may not be as popular as Stefanie, who knows everyone in the city of Minneapolis, but I did have a good weekend.

Hope you feel better soon. For a sick person, you sure had an eventful weekend!

I haven't seen season 1, but Project Runway is an addiction of mine. I LOVE it and saw season 2 and 3. It's a great show. I hope you enjoy it!!!

Feel better!

Can't wait to see your tree- I just love them.

Hope you take care of yourself and try to rest a little, you know, like... do nothing? At least you should give it a try, you busy-social bee! ;-) Feel better!

Feel better! Eat lots of delicious Better Than Sex With Anyone But Rob cake!

Feel better! I might welcome the flu if I had Project Runway DVDs to watch. I never saw the first two seasons, either!

Hey now. I said I ran into seven people I knew, and there are WAY more than seven people in Minneapolis. So there.

I know, I know. Don't mess with the sick girl. Sorry. Hope you're feeling better soon.

So your "couple date" went well then?

don't call me MA'AM said...

Ditto on the well wishes for you, sickie... hope you're on the mend soon!

Must remember to get recipe from GG when I'm off my diet.

Yes, yes... do spill about the couple date!!!

Ooh, PR 1 was my favorite season :-) Glad to hear you're taking the best medicine (laughter)!

3cars, I know. Maybe that is why I never feel any better.

Paisley, I saw seasons 2 and 3 as well. The first four episodes of season 1 were really good.

Spaw, I am not very good at doing nothing. I made a good attempt today though.

GG, we left all the extra cake at our friend's house so that we would not be tempted. And because we are nice. Kind of.

Lawyerish, I ordered the dvds from Blockbuster Online. Perhaps I will need another sick day when the next dvds come in.

Stefanie, you know everyone. Don't deny it.

DCMM, thanks. And the couple date went well, I think. No one embarrassed him- or herself, and I think it was pretty fun.

Yez, it's good so far. I can't wait to see the rest of the episodes!
