From A to Zzzz….

29 Mar

I had joked that I didn’t get sick this winter because my boyfriend was sick often enough that it was like my own personal flu shot every time we kissed. I spoke too soon. I made it through winter, but it appears it wasn’t in the cards to skip being sick altogether. I’ll spare you the details, but let’s just say things aren’t pretty and that I’m hoping my coworkers aren’t cringing from their cubicles. Trust me, if I had a choice, I wouldn’t be here.

This wonderful surprise just happened to pop up at the most inconvenient time. I better recover by tomorrow for a number of reasons.

First of all,  I’m going to my boyfriend’s house for Easter. This will be the second time I meet his mom and I’m not sure I want this follow-up impression to be me heavy lidded and sniffling while the ham gets carved.

Secondly, my 30th birthday is on Monday. The aging process has done its duty enough, thank you very much Mr. Cold. I have friends traveling in for my big “surprise” bash next weekend. There is NO way I want to be sick for the main event.

Last but not least, Monday begins the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge. How will I keep up with the veteran bloggers if my brain is foggy?

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge kicks off on April 1 (my birthday- woohoo!). Every day except Sundays for the month of April, a post must be written using a word starting with a consecutive letter of the alphabet as the hook. Did I explain that right? Monday has to be about something starting with “A,” Tuesday with the letter “B” and so on and so forth. If it doesn’t make sense blame the unicorns tap dancing in my head- or the cold medicine- then check the challenge’s Web site for a clearer description.

Wish me luck… and a quick recovery!

    Being sick at work is the worse! It’s bad enough that you have to go to work feeling crappy but noooo, coworkers always give that look like “ugh, why are you here?” I know my coworkers have done that to me.

    Happy early birthday! Hope you feel better soon!

      I’ve decided to leave at lunch and work from home the rest of the day. It is dead here today any ways. Thanks for the well wishes!

    *wishing you a speedy recovery* – Sometimes meeting people at your worst is when all the best things happen, we’ve all had the flu before, your boyfriends mum will understand *hopes*, it might even be endearing 🙂 I have joined the challenge for the first time, it’s bigger than I thought, but I’m super excited.
