As you most likely noticed, there was no blog the last 2 weeks. I wanted to let you all know I was very sick and out of work for a while. Being sick in the summer is the worst! Truly the worst! It was so nice outside last week; I was sad that I was stuck in bed. I was definitely “stuck” in bed too! I didn’t move all week.
After sleeping for hours in the middle of the day I would lay in bed propped up with too many pillows to count surrounded by my tissue box, laptop, television remote, cell phone with charger (in case I had to text for help being that I also had no voice to yell across the house), cough drops, cough syrup, NyQuil, and 2 dogs. (It was a pathetic scene) Every time I relocated from the bed to the recliner it was a project. Gathering all my things so that once I got comfortable I wouldn’t have to move in the least.
I also noticed that commercials on television are hilarious! I usually fast forward through them but I was sick so long that I had already watched everything that I had recorded with our DVR! So “poor me” I had to settle for live television and watching commercials. (How spoiled I sound!) At first, watching commercials was a painful experience, but then they became entertaining! (Please bear in mind; I was heavily medicated.) I would literally laugh OUT LOUD at these commercials. (click here to see my new favorite commercial) Who thinks up this stuff!
It’s so funny how we react to being sick! When we are sick we think of all the things that we could be doing. We promise ourselves that we will accomplish so much when we get better. “I will reorganize that book shelf” because after staring at it for 36 hours it has begun to irritate you to no end. “It so messy, as soon as I’m better I’m going to reorganize it!” Then looking at it weeks after your sickness has past and the book shelf looks exactly the same, but somehow now it doesn’t bother you, "it’s not really that messy.” We tell ourselves when watching The Food Network “I want that chicken piccata…if only I could taste things right now” (See picture to the right. Doesn't it look so yummy!) Or watching a show about how gummy bears are made and wishing you had the energy to go to the store and get gummy bears. Then realizing you don’t even like gummy bears. Or eating Ramen noodles and thinking they are the most incredible food ever created! But in reality it was the only thing you had the energy to cook. And let’s be honest, freeze dried food is kind of creepy.
So the point of this blog is simply to make you laugh at my lovely experiences from last week. But also to inform you the blog will be updated weekly again. I’m finally better! I’m no longer eating ramen noodles or dreaming of weird flavored gummy bears. I’m here at Century Color!
