Episode III: Revenge Of The Sick

Sick for three days now I have been (in Yoda language). I've been laying around and eating all day like Jabba.

Thanks to my sister "Lita" and Booboo, I took a Sudafed today which helped. (Oh my word! Australia actually has Sudafed! But it wasn't a wee little red pill like in the States- it was big and blue. Maybe it was Viagra.)

Who was the Phantom Menace who gave me this cold?

Uggh. I so don't want to go. Good thing Jesus doesn't have my attitude. "Hang on a cross? Shuh right. Let's just go get manna sandwiches."

Two Days And Counting

I did something different yesterday and today- instead of putting leftover food in the garbage, I collected it and threw it out to the birds in a nearby park. It's so fun to watch the frenzy, kind of like how people would react if an ATM blew up. Today all I had was an old peanut butter sandwich. Oh, the bigger birds got all crazy and protected it by ruffling their feathers and squawking really loud at everyone else. It brought a smile to my face.

The Lowest Low

I supposedly don't care much about what people really think of me (yeah, right.) So I go about most days with messed-up hair, outfitted in ratty gym clothes (that I worked out in, although I don't smell in them), wearing a somewhat nerdy pair of glasses.

But today was the, what I call "The Lowest of The Lows". I traveled across town to the gym, headed into the locker room, only to realize that I didn't bring my usual pair of gym shorts. I knew that if I ran home to grab them, I wouldn't come back to work out.

So, I exercised in my boxer shorts.

Yup- lifted weights, took a class, and then hopped on a cross-trainer afterwards.

Talkin' about a breezy workout. Guess I didn't sweat as much as I normally do.

Housewife Syndrome

Since I don't work, some people think I lay on the couch all day watching Oprah eating bonbon's. Most people though aren't really sure, so I get asked all the time "So, what do you do all day?" Yesterday was a perfect example of how my daily schedule gets filled up accomplishing things that just eat the day away.

*woke up around 8:00AM

*cleaned up the kitchen, ate breakfast, made a poopoo
*went to the gym, took a class and talked with other class-goers afterwards
*went to pay a bill
*ran to the post office
*bought some things at the grocery store
*returned a video at Blockbuster
*ate a late lunch at home

*had coffee with Paul

BAM! 6:00PM!
The day is done.
