I am going to ask you nicely not to judge me for taking an actual Blogger’s Sick Day yesterday. My cold felt better and by “better” I mean “less horrible.” I took some over the counter cold remedy that knocked me out. When I woke up I made chicken soup and had a couple martinis. I suppose hot toddies would have been more appropriate, but I just couldn’t face the honey.
So the first martini made me feel better, the second made me feel a little too good. I had some chicken soup, and went to bed. Now I feel quite thoroughly embarrassed, still headachy and a little sick to my stomach. Well, maybe when the hangover goes away, it’ll take the cold with it. That has happened to me before. Mostly I am embarrassed because my mother reads this blog. Good God, I’m 54 years old and still trying to hide my foibles from Mom. Hi, Mom, by the way.
I also got up this morning determined to make up for all the stuff I did not get done on my week off. Accordingly, I put a load of laundry in the washing machine and opened my laptop to make this post. Who knows what I might get done after a cup of coffee. Maybe something worth blogging about.
