12:30PM yesterday: I left the office because I wasn’t feeling well.
12:55PM: I got on the train with a ridiculous headache…probably brought on by all my coughing.
1:44PM: Arrived home.
1:46PM: Got into my pajamas and got in bed.
1:47PM – 4:30PM: Slept.
4:30PM: J got home with a pizza, which I got up to eat…it was the first food I’d eaten all day. It was very delicious.
5:30PM – 8:00PM: Watched home improvement shows on the couch and coughed…a lot.
8:00PM: Got into bed
8:00PM – 10:00PM: Tossed and turned and coughed…a lot.
10:00PM – 12:00AM: Finally slept.
12:00AM: Woke up hungry…went downstairs and had more pizza.
12:30AM: Heard J say “Shan, can you come here…and bring me that drill”. Knew nothing good could come of that sentence but went anyway.
12:30AM – 1:00AM: Watched J try to fix the ice maker, which was clicking. More accurately, I watched him take the ice maker out of the freezer, breaking a screw in the process. Also, I watched him make a mess on the floor that I was too tired to clean.
1:00AM – 2:30AM: Watched How I Met Your Mother and Castle with J while laying on the couch. Coughed…a lot.
2:30AM – 4:00AM: Laid in the recliner in the bedroom and watched several episodes of House Of Bryan on HGTV or DIY or one of those channels. Coughed some more.
4:00AM – 6:00AM: Finally slept.
6:00AM: Woke up coughing. Finally admitted to J that the cough is beating me and agreed to stay home from work and go to the doctor.
6:00AM – Present (about 10AM): Coughing and waiting for my doctor’s appointment.
This was almost an exact repeat of the night before…except with the addition of the ice maker situation. I freaking hate being sick. I hate coughing. I hate being so exhausted that I can’t function and yet, I can’t sleep. I’m really hoping the doctor can give me some magic elixir that will just fix me right up. A girl can hope, right?
The only good thing to come out of this…late night TV is hilarious without meaning to be. Stay tuned for tomorrow when I pass along all the things I learned by watching TV until 4AM…
