My Immune System Is Under Attack

I'm not entirely sick yet but I'm getting there. I'm at that terrible early stage when you know you're getting sick because your throat itches, nose is runny, you cant stop sneezing & your eyes are watery. I hate it.

I really thought I was going to be able to get through this year without getting sick. I'm trying my best to fight it off by taking all my vitamins & wearing a jacket when I'm outside but I think my effort may be futile. I think getting sick might have been partially my fault, I say partially because I'm totally blaming my mom for spreading her nasty cold germs around the house. But it might also have to do with the fact that it rained all day yesterday & I went out into the freezing 42 degree weather (I'm aware this is not 'cold' for some but it's freezing to a SoCal girl like me) to get some salad mix for Dexter, which btw is doing great.

Anyhow, the point is I feel awful & since I called in sick yesterday to work, I feel shitty leaving because I feel sick again today. There's always stuff to be done around the office & with all the budget cuts I'm just not comfortable taking all this time off. It sucks. I think the best thing to do at this time is go over to CVS & buy a ton of meds to mask how I really feel, temporarily anyway.

We finally went & purchased a Christmas tree on Sunday. It's real & it's around 7ft tall, I think. I love the way the tree makes the whole house smell good but I hate the fact that I'm killing a tree. I guess if I really wanted to justify having a real tree (which I do) I could say that it would have died anyway because it was already cut & I'm at least giving it a purpose....hm...sounds good to me. I feel better already, ha ha.

I contacted my insurance company last night & told them about hitting my dads car. I hate the way they grill you, it always makes me feel so nervous. I admitted it was my fault, mostly because it was & well his car was parked so there's no way his car hit me, lol. Now I'm just waiting to get a call from an adjuster today to see what the next step is. Hopefully my car & his will be fixed before the new year. I hate driving around with a huge dent in my car, it totally cheapens it & feel like everyone stares.

Ah...what an eventful weekend. I hope everyone had a great one & hope your immune system stands up better to germs than mine is.


  1. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. Dayquil! I swear by that stuff. I always get a cold at finals time and I take Dayquil and I fly all day. Then I take Nyquil and sleep for 14 hours. :)

    I was laughing out loud when you said how boring Bonnie's shower was! She sounds like a real pill. Was she like this before she & Joe were engaged??

  3. I hope you feel better soon! I am getting the sniffles and it makes me nervous. I have a vacation coming up, so I can't really leave. It doesn't seem that Bonnie will fit into the family well. Good luck with that.


I love comments!
