The random ramblings of a perpetual procrastinator. These are the life & times of a nursing home CNA navigating the ups & downs of living with someone who's living with a disability. A sometimes amusing, sometimes bittersweet look at my journey into real adulthood.

You have got to be kidding me.

So you know my weekend away I've been looking forward to for over a month?  You know, the one that I had to jump through hoops to get time off for?  Yeah, that one.  Well, it's this weekend.

...and I'm sick today.

I didn't fall asleep last night until sometime after 4:00, & then I woke up around 8:00 this morning.  I couldn't even keep my eyes open, so I just laid there until 9:30.  Then, I tried to get up & couldn't.  I just physically couldn't get up from the end of the bed.  I feel like I got hit by a bus.

I cannot breath out of my nose because I'm not congested.  My throat is a little scratchy.  I am just physically drained.  Crap.

This better be something that just passes by, or I am going to be very, very angry.  I'm so looking forward to this weekend, & I don't want to have to spend it in the hotel room.

In order to help this cold/plague/whatever the hell this is along, I took a sick day today.  I'm just going to relax & hopefully feel better tomorrow morning.


  1. Ohh that sucks!! I hope you get well soon enough to enjoy your vacation!!

  2. ZINC! You need zinc, stat!! Cold-eeze seems like a crock, but it honest-to-God works. I'm the biggest homeopathic skeptic there is, but I never (repeat, NEVER) go through a winter without a baggie of it in the medicine drawer.

  3. Oh no!! I really hope the rest does the trick and that you're back on your feet in no time!!

  4. Eek! I am so sorry you got sick, I hope it was just a little 24 hour bug and you are feeling better by today so you can enjoy your weekend away!!
