What I've accomplished today

  • The alarm went off, twice, finally I turned it off instead of hitting snooze, fumbled for the phone and called my boss to tell her I wasn't coming in today.
  • Helped G-man get the girls ready and out the door.
  • Took a bath, trying to steam the gunk out of my head.
  • Cancelled my dinner plans with 3 women from an e-group that I've been part of for nearly 7 years! (boo hoo)
  • Updated a project plan, 3 different times and had the server barf on me every time I tried to save it. I e-mailed the guy in charge of it and he reminded me it really hates VPN.
  • Compiled a bunch of stuff for a meeting tomorrow and sent it out
  • Made lunch for G-man and nuked my own Lean Cuisine.
  • Played spy, taking pictures from our bathroom window of G-man constructing the swing set that Santa brought.
  • Made the appropriate grimaces when he came in to show me the finger that he hit really, really hard with a hammer. It is pretty gruesome.
  • Took large doses of ibuprofen to try and get the pain in my head to recede.
  • Took a shower thinking that if I were cleaner I'd feel better (no dice).
  • Read a large part of Wild Fire by Nelson DeMille. I usually read mindless crap but DeMille does a great job of making the potentially cataclysmic seem possible and makes you want to read all about it. I keep having to remind myself its fiction.
  • Defrosted something for dinner
  • Sat outside, its 78 degrees!?, and kept G-man company
  • Read lots and lots and lots of blog posts

Doesn't that sound thrilling? Okay, off to blow my nose...

Being sick is never fun! I hope you feel better soon!

I somehow found myself on your husband's blog a while back....and I had been meaning to check out yours!

I think it is so cool that you both have a blog! I almost wish Mr. Mayhem would join in the fun, but then.....I would have to share my computer time with him! :)

Two words: Mucinex and NeilMed Nasal Rinse. OK, that's 4 words. But they are the best things for a cold since sliced bread.

Feel better soon.

So sorry for you, my friend. When can we come over and play?

You forgot helping me by pushing and pulling boards about while I lifted the side. I was happy to have you outside with me even though I was pretty busy. I hope you feel better soon.
