I could just be delirious from lack of sleep, but I am really happy that it’s Tuesday!
My Monday wasn’t so great… I spent MOST of yesterday trying to remove a trojan from my laptop…grrrr…. Do people have THAT much time on their hands? Do they have to inflict cyber-pain on others? Who comes up with these things? I always imagine a 14-year-old computer geek/latch-key kid that sits in front of his parent’s computer, laughing hysterically as he creates computer viruses to get back at the adult population for ruining his teen life…. He cackles and rubs his sticky hand together and says “I’m the king of the world!”…. Ya, did I mention I might be delirious from lack of sleep?!
When I wasn’t fixing my computer yesterday I was on the phone with customer support for Sony…grrrrr……. I got a BEAUTIFUL Sony Reader for Christmas this year from my beloved. I have wanted a digital reader for a VERY long time, and up until Christmas nothing made me more giddy than the mere thought that I could carry around HUNDREDS of books in one tiny device! I was beyond THRILLED to finally got my hands on one!….. That was until I turned it on! Grrr……. I have had nothing BUT problems with it! Pull-you-hair-out-going-insane kind of problems!! I have needed tech support no LESS than 6 times in the last month, and it still isn’t working properly. Needless to say, I am not a happy camper… I’d return it, but I have purchased over $100 worth of books for it, AND my honey bought me a leather jacket and book light for it, and I don’t want to have to eat up all of those costs… I….JUST….WANT….IT….TO….WORK!!!! Is that TOO much to ask? I have wasted over 20 hours now trying to get it to work as it should…. to no avail…. So it looks like I am going to HAVE to call tech support again!! AAHH!!
But NOT today!
Because today is Tuesday… Sweet Tuesday Morning!! That means that my honey has the day off!! It is just about my favorite day of the week, and I am going to take advantage of every minute of it!
As I write this, I am snuggled in bed with my laptop and a delicious cup of coffee. Tim is sitting in the living room watching one of his favorite TV shows on the PVR, and all is well with the world. I am insanely exhausted, fighting a bug (thanks little dude for coughing on me 4 nights in a row, but I love you anyhow!), and I am hurting today… BUT I am peaceful and content.
Today I am forcing myself to put something on OTHER than sweats and leave the house! I might just curl my hair today…. and if I STILL have enough energy, I might wear some earring and put on my push-up bra! Somebody STOP me before I lose control! 😉
It might not seem like that big of a deal, but trust me, it is! Other than to walk my son home from school, I haven’t been out of the house for over a week because of this flare I am in. Looking back, I don’t think I have left my comfort zone more than twice since Christmas except for the daily jaunt to my favorite elementary school… Wow, that’s embarrassing. My social life consists of giving the evil eye to the kids that peg me off with snowballs in the field. Yep… When I am feeling bad, I even try to avoid making contact with the other Mom’s that wait for their children along with me. Nobody knows at my son’s school that I have a chronic illness – and when I’m in agony I tend to want to be invisible…. but not today! I want the world to see me holding hands with my honey at Starbucks! because today is Tuesday, and it’s the best day of the week, and I’m in love!
Whether we go pay bills (yes, some people STILL do that in person and NOT online), or go to the grocery store to pick up toilet paper and batteries (oh that reminds me… I need AA batteries!), I am going to do it with a smile on my face – because I get to do it with my best friend!
Maybe I will stop for some lozenges first……
