I'm Sorry To Say...It's A List!

And it's a pictureless list at that!  I've put myself on a seclusion plan, trying to spare the 3 in my family that haven't had this sickness.  While in seclusion, I have just my iPad and still cannot figure out how to post pictures when using it.  Oh well.  

1.  This inconvenient crud has worn out its welcome.  Not any big deal in the big picture, just a nuisance.  I missed a day and a half of work this week, my first time using sick leave.  But when I got very woozy at work, and every piece of my body, inside and out from my head to my toes, started aching, I submitted to the fact that I may indeed be ill. So I popped into the health room and took my temp...100.9.  My cooperative co-workers were oh-so-eagerly-helpful in getting my germs out of there.  My temp climbed throughout the day and I was  The next day I got up and showered and ready to go before realizing it was just a stupid idea. My aching head throbbed with each cough.  My eyeballs were so sore I couldn't look left or right or up or down.  I could go on, but I will stop.  Headache, body aches, fever all gone.  Now it's no voice, deep chest cough and extreme fatigue.  My big adventure today was taking a shower.  And after the shower I broke into a profuse sweat and took a nap.  Pathetic.

2.  And speaking of fevers and patheticness...fevers and sleeping produce some very bizarre dreams!  After I made a comment about that on Facebook, one of Brad's friends gave that phenomenon the name "fleeping".  Isn't that perfect?  So I shall forevermore call it fleeping.  I fleeped all about monkeys and penguins and racecars and all sorts of strange combinations.  I wish I could remember all the details after I wake up, because my goodness would they make some entertaining stories.  But, alas, the fleeping is a fleeting moment.

3. I'm in love with Rice Krispy Treats.

4.  My firstborn graduates from high school two months from today.  That makes me feel so old.  It also makes me feel a bit muddled-in-the-mind about all there is to do.  Getting him moved to Baltimore is going to be a bit overwhelming and quite a whirlwind.  The recording engineering director called him this last week, just to personally congratulate him and tell him how excited they are to have him.  Told him in all his years of interviews, he was the most obvious candidate for this program he's ever interviewed.  This man has no idea how much that comforts my momma heart.  It makes the anticipation of sending him across the country easier, knowing that he's going to a place where he's enthusiastically welcomed and personally known.  Feels good.

5.  Also making me feel old is my baby of the bunch.  Last night she was watching Knight Rider with her dad, as show I never watched as a kid.  I have a hard time not making remarks about how ridiculous certain things are (like the whole talking car part..really?!). I made a comment last night about something that was implausible, and she said, "MOM, you need to remember this was made all the way back in the 1900s!"  Touche!  Score one for the baby girl.

6.  I love having the windows open and listening to this Spring rain!  Love it.  Clean and refreshing, making everything grow and bloom and brighten.

10.  Now I'm worn out and need a nap.  I wish I was kidding.
