You all, I have been SO flipping sick the past few days. I stayed home from work on Thursday and Friday and basically just slept and coughed and hacked. My stomach is so sore from coughing, I think I broke a rib. Although ribs aren't in your stomach, right? Hell, my ribs probably migrated to my stomach what with all the violent coughing.
Maybe I have tuberculosis.
I haven't gone to the doctor, because they always wait until after I pay my $30.00 copay to tell me that it's viral and they can't do anything about it. So let's hope this time it's viral, otherwise I might be dead from a raging bacterial infection in a few day's time.
In other news, I had to say I know my list of 36 things is totally slanted towards the fun stuff in life. Which makes me seem kind of silly and frivolous, I suppose, in retrospect. But, you all, I spend so much of my life wrapped up in my kids and my work that my blog is pretty much the only place I can say, "But what about meeeeeeee??????" So I say it, and I say it often. Maybe I shouldn't. Yeah, of course I should. (3 points if you can name the song)
Also, I find that as my kids get older, I grow more uncomfortable writing about them. I always said to myself that I'd stop writing about Ashley once she learned how to read, and well, ding dong, the girl is literate. Not that she'll be pulling up my blog for light afternoon reading anytime soon, but I feel now that she's her own little person, and it's not my place to be carving out her online persona. I still want to blog, of course...I just need to switch focus a little. So I'm trying to figure all that out.
Whoo, that got a little heavy. Blogging while doped up on cold medicine, hooray!
Anyhow, so my list of 36 things is just one way I'm shifting focus a little. Because come on, we all love a narcissistic blog, am I right, ladies!? Bueller?
Regardless, I'm gonna live it up the next month, trying to meet my list of 36. Which this sickness has put a damper on, unfortunately. The way things are going, I might have to wear false eyelashes and red lipstick on the same day to make up some time. The horror! The horror!
