Back in Business Baby, DCL and Stuck on Ebay...
It's been 48 hours since the mandatory "rest in bed" process began and believe it or not I think I am finally seeing the light. I'm feeling sort of human today with the exception of the fact that I am still hanging on to the non-smoker's smokers cough. When I woke up this morning I decided it might be time to wash my hair. I won't tell you when the last time I did that because.... I honestly can't remember. I just know that everytime I try to brush it hurts. As I eagerly jump out of the shower - nice and clean - I'm regretting the decision I made to wash my hair. Way too much effort to dry my mane. MO (middle one) is up and ready to go to school this morning. He offered to take me to Java Joe's for a treat since I have been sequestered to my room for 10 days now. I bundled up, he put me into his car and off we went. And then...I had a vision into the future. This is what it will be like when my kids will have to drive me places when I'm old and feeble. They will have to help me cross the street to go the florist. When we get to the counter they were sold out of my favorite muffin so I settled for a Jumbo Carrot (it was the only choice that wasn't made with white flour). I love being at Java Joes. Even if they don't have my muffin dujour I don't feel cranky here. They have a cozy fake fireplace, comfy seating area and a flat screen T.V. If MO didn't have to get to class I would have stayed there for the day as it reminds me of home. I was out for exactly 14 minutes.....not much of a diversion but it's a start.
1. I don't want to miss any TGIF (Thank G-d it's Friday) celebrations
2. I need to assure my boss that I haven't quit
3. I miss my highlighters (especially the hot pink ones)
4. I am yearning for the companionship of other women
6. I am longing for desktop over laptop
