Things To Do in Iowa in the Wintertime When You’re Sick

Ah, yes… I am in the land of the living! Barely… Will take me some time to catch back up with everyone, and I apologize for being bad in advance. In the meantime, I think you’ll find the following observations to be fairly self-explainitory:

  • Know that Charmin Ultra beats anything else … uh… butts down.
  • Be sure to have lots of paper products in the house for every orafice.
  • If you want to lose 10 IQ points over the period of a week, watch any daytime TV (sorry, soap fans)
  • There is no substitute for a pile of cats – preferrably purring
  • If you sleep all day you will be up all night
  • Full moons still suck
  • Weird dreams get even weirder and involve family members, WoW characters, and blog friends – not necessarily in the same dream
  • Anything you eat will probably be attacking within 30 minutes.
  • When you think it can’t get worse, it will
  • When you think you’re getting better, you aren’t.
  • When you go to work thinking you’re cured, you will relapse.
  • Being stuck in WoW when your family “tech support and stupid question team” are working is frustrating.
  • Not being able to cuddle or kiss the spouse because you’re afraid of contaminating him is the worst.
  • When you start reading romance novels, you know you’re out of books.
  • Running out of books will make you certifiably insane.
  • Going for four days without showering and having Hubby not mention it once: Priceless.

I’m sure I’ll think of more… for now, it’s just nice to be able to smile.

  1. Sleep. That’s all I do because if I am awake I get totally annoyed by the fact that I am sick!
    Hope you feel better quickly! ((Hugs))

  2. Certainly doesn’t sound like fun.
    Hopefully you have paid your dues well in advance this year and you’ll feel good for the rest of 2006.
    Take Care

  3. Glad to see you are still residing in the land of the living, was worried that you had fallen off a cliff and were wandering around trying to find your way back.

  4. Sometimes you need the extended break…and cable is wonderful….TNT Primetime in the Daytime can keep me busy for hours.
    Feel better!!!
