Whiny Wednesday

I stayed up WAY too late last night and was FAR too keyed up to go to sleep. The end of Big Brother was the best yet… my girl won and that’s NEVER happened before! The winner is usually someone who is diabolical and shifty… but this year a sweet, innocent little southern girl won and that made me ridiculously happy. She wasn’t the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree but she knew enough to win. But afterwards I was watching all the live stream of the after party... and stayed up until 1-ish.

So I am tired. It’s raining outside. I still don’t feel good. I’m coughing up green junk (still). Austin’s throat is killing him and he is coughing worse than me. My eyes feel week. I’m stuffy. I have zero energy. Zero ambition. And I need to do about seven hours worth of marketing today. I don’t feel like talking at all – much less trying to persuade people to buy stuff. My head hurts. I had a bad hair day. The pulled muscles in my side from coughing are not getting any better – it hurts every time I move or breathe. I need to call the pulmo back and let him know that I’m still green, coughing and in pain but… he will want me to drive down to Gainesville to see him and I have GOT to get tires today… it was a white knuckle drive in to the office today with the pouring rain. So after I get off work (thankfully, early today) I will go straight to the tire store and hope they can (a) do it quickly and (b) do it cheaply.

I didn’t have my smoothie this morning because I didn’t wash the blender yesterday and was too tired to do it this morning. Instead I made toast. And then discovered that the apple butter was full of green fuzzy mold. Yuck. I didn’t even know that kind of stuff would mold inside the refrigerator. I threw out two pounds of ground beef that we meant to cook Sunday with Hamburger Helper but neither Austin nor myself felt like cooking. I bought “last chance” meat that was reduced for quick sale and it really needed to be used the day I bought it. Instead I had two pieces of toast that was cold by the time I ate it. Lunch will be a lean cuisine because I need to work during lunch to make up for leaving early. Ugh.

And I’m running a fever. Lord, just get me through this day.

End of Whiny Wednesday entry. Love and hugs, y'all.
