By mid-morning yesterday I felt like death warmed over. I ended up leaving the office and heading home for some rest. I had this horribly queasy stomach and a low-grade fever. I got home, climbed into bed, turned on Sex and the City, and started to doze. :yawn:
But you knowâ€¦ every time Iâ€™d start to get to sleep good, the freaking phone would ring. And it was bloody solicitors! Annoying. So by the time the late afternoon came, I was exhausted from trying to sleep and NOT. I gave up. :doze:
Picked up my kiddo â€“ who got the cutest haircut. He is sooo adorable! Cooked dinner. Fed the boys, then stared at the computer for a little bit. Caught up on some message boards and a few blogs. Went to bed at around 8:30, watched another episode of Sex and the City, and shut the light out around 9:15. And just as I started to doze offâ€¦ the phone rang!
Sometimes it makes you want to fall on a sword.
However, when I finally did fall asleep, I slept like the dead. Hard, fast, dreaming of Razr phones (donâ€™t ask). I feel almost human this morning except for the awful dull headache I canâ€™t shake.
So in the office, Iâ€™m sitting here minding my own business when someone asks me if I printed off part of my book to a printer on the other side of the office (yesterday). Of course not. She then says someone found some â€œpornâ€ printed on the printer and thought maybe it was my book. Okay, first of all my book is not porn. Second of all â€“ I was out sick most of the day. And third of all, why blame the romance writer? I was kind of annoyed by that. Like I would be stupid enough to print off part of my ms. â€“ and to a printer thatâ€™s more than five steps away! And even if I didâ€¦hell, Iâ€™d be there in a second to pick it up.
Sometimes it makes you want to chew your own foot off.
Anywayâ€¦Iâ€™m printing and laminating covers today for a proposal thatâ€™s due out tomorrow. Iâ€™m slowly getting over my year-end blues. Thanks, Leigh, for the advice. You are SO right.
Now if I can just get this eye to stop twitchingâ€¦
