At home, sick, today

Yes, that is correct. I am taking a day off. A Tuesday. And yes, I really am sick. I was sick through the night so add exhaustion on top of sick. And as it happens, Tuesday is the day we have to turn in time cards. I had to send my info through e-mail. Even taking today off, I had 44 hours in this week. I think I can afford to miss today, don't you?

I know I'll be back at work tomorrow. And there's delicious evil in spending the day in my new nightgown and robe, which I coincidentally bought last night. Not really in preparation for today, but perhaps for when I go visit my aunt and uncle, either this weekend or next.

There may be a non-strenuous chore or two that I could get done today, but I won't be able to get much done physically. I'm not up to it. I even scared off the Jehovah's Witnesses.

I thought someone was knocking on the front door at 3 a.m. When I woke up enough to realize what it was, I discovered it was my stomach. Yikes!

I also learned it's about time to get someone to light the floor furnace or put another blanket on the bed, because it was just a might cold last night!

I hope you feel better soon! (Especially if MY missionaries come knocking on your door--wink, wink!)

Are you sure you didn't know something was up when you bought the jammies last night?? ;)

Um, NO, really I didn't. Honest. But boy, that fuzzy robe is nice.

I am so sorry you are not feeling well. But a day off sounds so good.

Do you think if I bought myself a new gown and robe I would get sick too? :-) I want a warm fuzzy robe.
