So what do you eat when you are home sick, and have been sick for more than a month? Good question! I finally kicked the bronchitis and came down with a cold. My boss essentially ordered me to take today off. In fact, I even went home early yesterday. I missed my company's status update, which apparently also included the fact that I won an award, missed out on free Indian food, and have to wait until Monday to get a $25 grocery store gift card given to all employees.
I don't feel too bad about missing it (except for the excitement of winning an award, which I found out when my engineer congratulated me by email). I got home, put on sweatpants, and immediately fell asleep for 2 hours, sitting upright on the couch.
I spent the rest of the day tired, and spouse and I had tickets to see Blue Man Group. We even hired a babysitter for the first time! (Yes my son is 5.5. Sad. We've swapped with friends, hired a nanny for a week - but she's not local during the school year, but that's it.) It was an awesome show, but I almost fell asleep during it. I woke up at 3 am again...this insomnia is killing me.
For my day off, I sent my kid off to day care anyway (such a bad mom thing to do, but I am going to pull the "sick" card here). Got some grocery shopping done and now I'm about to take a nap.
So this was my lunch today after my trip to TJ's. Annie's Teriyaki noodles, with extra frozen veggies tossed in, and a couple of tangerines from our tree. The tree is laden this year. I don't buy much fruit now, I just go outside and start picking!
Later folks. Turkey day is tomorrow. We aren't hosting this year, nor are we going anywhere. A couple of coworkers kindly invited us over, but with my sickness, I really just need to be somewhere where I can nap on demand.
