I am tired of tea and soup and my couch and coughing. I am tired of my knee hurting and muscles cramping up. I am tired of being in my pajamas! And coughing - did I mention that already?
Have you ever heard of the axiom of “Be careful what you wish for, you might get it”? Well I did wish and did get it! I wished for some quiet time to catch up on my reading and writing. I have had enough. Five days
on the couch or in bed dozing because the muscle relaxers also make you sleepy. Five days of coughing up hairballs (Okay – so it only feels like it!). I am so done with quiet time and coughing – did I mention that already?
I have read a bunch. Not as much as you might expect of me, but a lot. Luckily there were baseball playoff games and a marathon of NCIS with Ziva as well as books to read. The cats have allowed me to cuddle
with them providing I don’t cough! I was hoping for a day or two to catch up on reading and write up book reviews – not five days – and not sleeping hours at a time. My wishes came with strings. Certainly the expression is apropos
when it starts out with the words be careful.
Tomorrow, I can go back to work, luckily it is a teacher’s workshop day so that me not being full power is going to be okay. I was wishing for time
that would include sun shining and warmth. Not the lamp and a couple of blankets. I was thinking of a lounge chair not my couch. I was thinking... well it doesn’t matter – because it is what it is.
I think I will make myself some ice tea this time – just to mix it up....
