First, thanks for the fun comments on my last blog, which was pretty goofy. I blame the flu.
Stupid flu! I thought it was starting to ease up last night, but turns out that overnight it just moved from my chest to my sinuses and my fever came back. And I'm pms-ing.
I'm also peeved because I'm house and cat sitting in a really fun neighborhood in the city but it's cold and rainy and I'm stuck with my cold and whiny self in the house. The cat keeps looking back and forth at me and the window with great disappointment in both directions. Poor guy.
An hour after i woke up, I got a call from one of my 2 favorite co-workers saying she put in her notice. She's not only a wonderful person, she's also exceptionally gifted at her job, so of course she found a job that's offering her more of everything. I'm very happy for her, very bummed for me.
I know we'll find someone else who's great, but in the meantime, between hormones and illness fatigue, it was hard not to buy one million cookies when I went to the store for meds. I decided to try 2 cookies and some vegan yogurt instead. One delicious cookie down, one yucky yogurt down, one cookie saved for later. I don't mind eating Vegan now and then, but Vegan knock offs just aren't my favorite.
One more: I haven't had coffee in THREE days! I know there are maybe a handful of people in the Seattle area who don't drink coffee. I'm not in that handful. It's like saying I haven't breathed air or circulated blood. I'm sure whoever discovered green tea is long gone, but I should find out who that is and make a shrine for coming up with such a healing alternative. Hopefully it wasn't Genghis Khan or worse. They'll be hard to thank.
I'll take off my whiny, pathetic colored glasses soon, I promise.
