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.

    Oh, I feel for you in a big way. I didn't have coffee for almost a week when the plague initially started. I missed everything about it right down to grinding the beans. Now I am back to drinking it each morning before my antibiotics turn everything tasting like crud.
    Seriously, who isn't cranky when they have the flu, their sinuses are raw and they aren't drinking coffee?? So rant away my love--it is music to my cranky ears. emoticon

    Sorry you're not feeling well Sharon although you still have quite a good sense of humor...love it!

    Get well soon my friend...and that's true about coffee...I never get headaches and when I quit coffee I had terrible headaches and felt sick.

    More hugs

    Sorry, it doesn't sound like a very good day for you. Hope today will be much better.

    It's been cold and rainy here too and my cat has decided to spend the day curled up on a cushion.

    Sorry you are sick, dont stress it do what the cat does just go with the flow. I take it you will not be doing the chicken soup thing, that's OK there has to be something else you can have. I made black bean vegan brownies from a Spark recipe. DH did NOT like them, I did eat them, they did need tweaking but they froze really well so they lasted a long time, Take care we have 80 degree weather and no rain. RED alert for forest and brush fires. Rain should get here at the weekend but we really do need it.
    TOO bad your co-worker quit, I imagine she will be hard to replace,
    HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon FEEL BETTER VERY SOON !

    Sharon, I'm so sorry you're so sick. Your 'indulgences' are fine, although I'm pretty sure I wouldn't enjoy the vegan yogurt either, emoticon

    One caution: going cold turkey off caffeine will give you headaches. I advocate reducing or going off caffeine, but take it slowly.

    Please feel better SOON!

    I hope you get over this flu quickly so you and the cat will be happy.
    Vegan yogurt doesn't sound so fab. At least you had a cookie.
    No coffee in 3 days!!! I couldn't stand it.
