Doctor’s orders

April 8, 2006

How does a little piece of paper from a doctor finally make me feel justified lying around at home? I went to the doctor yesterday afternoon. My dear Roomie A went with me, which turned out to be a good thing cause she’s getting sick too. She also kept me entertained while we waited for the work in appointment. He said I have a sinus infection which somehow has made my throat hurt like the devil. He recommended I take 3 days off work to heal and said that the sinus infection is most likely the reason I threw up on my flight the other day. He said I can pretty much expect to be sick a lot in the first year of my job and there isn’t a whole lot I can do about it. Yay!! My face feels better today but I feel like my wisdom teeth are growing in, except I got them taken out years ago. I bought two boxes of popsicles yesterday and have eaten about half a box so far. I called in last night and tonight and won’t be working again until Tuesday probably. So now it’s just me and Roomie A sitting around, watching too much tv, playing on the internet and moaning about how bad we feel. She’s lost most of her voice which is kind of funny.

I went to sleep last night with my window open about 8 inches so I could get a breeze in my room. As I was falling asleep I started hearing the frogs singing (always a sign it’s going to rain). A few hours later I was awakened by the sound of heavy rain falling. It was absolutely beautiful. Then it started thundering and scared the crap out of me. It was so loud the car alarms in our parking lot started going off and it looked like it was daylight outside. I finally got up when I couldn’t sleep anymore and have migrated back to the living. Being sick is really boring.

PS. I know people are reading my blogs… Some of you (Kat and Carson) are brave enough to leave me comments and I think you’re rockstars for it.
