I hate being sick! Just thought I'd put that out there. I don't think anyone really likes being sick, but it really drives me crazy. I'm pretty patient, but after a few days of not being able to eat/breathe/sleep I get annoyed. I haven't had a cold since December of 2007, so maybe it was overdue.
I took a day and 1/2 off work, and basically stayed in bed the whole time. I am feeling much better today and am back in the office. However it would be nice to be home watching soap operas again.
I'm lucky enough to live with 2 people who are eager to help out a sickee in need. Robbie called to check on me on several occasions and repeatedly offered to get me medicine or anything else I may need. Jimmy made me food, got me medicine and pretty much did what I asked him to for the few days I was home. Ok so that part of being sick is kinda nice. :)
Now that I'm back in the office, I see I'm not the only one feeling under the weather. This place is like a illness breeding ground. I hear coughing and sneezing at every turn. Hopefully I've already served my time and won't get re infected ( if that is even possible?).
On a completely different topic, yesterday on my day home sick from work I had to go to the grocery store. Yes had to. Jimmy signed us up to bring a dessert to a Young Women’s fundraiser auction tonight, and as of yesterday at 12pm I didn't have anything to bring.
So I drug my self to the store (in my pj's, no make up and looking frightful if you must know) with Jimmy in tow to get the ingredients to make a dessert. We picked up a few things, and when we checked out they told us our total. It was like $30. $30 for dessert stuff?! I thought is sounded high, but was in a Day Quil haze so I didn't pay much attention to it.
After I got home, I started thinking about it and realized that amount just couldn't be right. So I looked at the receipt and saw I was charged the wrong amount for something, and charged twice for it when I only bought one. The error ending up charging me an extra $12 or so. Back to the store I went and got the manager to rectify the mistake. He was happy to do so, and was very apologetic but it made me wonder how many other times that happens. $12 here and there can add up! The moral of the story is, be sure to check your receipts!
Waiting for James to arrive!
