There is nothing out there that annoys me more than a head-cold. Okay, I’m lying, but it’s still pretty bad. When I have a head-cold, people die, people get maimed, and in the very least there is a very irritable Sarah running around yelling at people.
I started feeling stuffy and what-not yesterday during the day, but fortunately being the weekend, and having a very awesome kid, I was lucky enough to sleep in, only to take a short nap later. Not to mention the company I curled up with made it that much better. After the nap? It just went down hill from there. There should have been a fucking blinking neon light (with sparkles) above my head with a very clear disclaimer: This girl will either whine until you want to stab your own ear drums or get pissed off for no got-damn reason at all.
I’m surprised with the amount of whining I did last evening/night that I’m not single, or more likely buried at the bottom of Lake Michigan (hey, does anyone remember my theory on the best way to hide a body? Lake Michigan + Woodchipper? Anyone? Anyone???) but regardless it was actually a half-way decent night. I spent it curled up with the boy, blankets, pillows and a movie. (Okay, you know I’m sick if I actually watch a movie.) Crashed early only to feel a teensy-tiny-not-really-substantial bit better this morning.
Oh my god, I’m surprised I made it out of bed with out mutant pigs flying by my window. That was by far the hardest morning I’ve had in a while. Today actually wasn’t that bad though, I only got irritated like a dozen times, one being at this:
No. Seriously. I want to know the name, address, and make/model car of the asshole who thought it’d be a got-damn-dandy idea to put such positive crap on a COUGH DROP wrapper. You know. Cough drops? What you eat when you feel like utter shit? When you’re pretty sure there is a rabid squirrel clawing out of your throat (yes, real analogy there folks, thank you thank you)? I will find him or her and I will decimate them. But I digress..
Beyond that and a brief appearance by Day-Glo-Boy, work went alright. Managed to go full-blown grocery shopping afterwards to, thanks to Em who was awesome enough to drive my ass. She even took Noodle to Pet-Land while I shopped, the joy of shopping sans begging child is definitely NOT lost on the single mom. I think between that and having a full fridge again has cheered me up immensely.
Here’s to a better tomorrow. A tomorrow minus the squirrel.
