Sick Stuff

Isn't life just so hard? Today was one of those days for me. While I was washing my hair I had an epiphany- I don't have to do anything I don't want to do. And I REALLY didn't want to go to work. So I called in sick to life today. (technically Jack called in sick for me.....) I was so giddy I could hardly stand it. I washed all the dishes that had been sitting in my sink since sunday, I did 4 loads of laundry- washed, dried AND put away. I ran errands and went to lunch with my fabulous husband, I finished shopping for Jack's birthday presents, bought cake and ice cream for Jack's party, now I'm watching American Idol and wishing I never had to work again.

I was surprised at all the things I was missing while I slave my life away at work.

Like when I was at Wal-mart I happened to get in line behind this super cute couple. Not gorgeous by any means but cute. You know the type. Anyway, not even kidding- their entire purchase consisted of Lean Cuisine, 100 calorie cracker packs, sugar free ice cream, Rice Cakes, etc. Then I started thinking... what if this guy is emotional abusive. And he told her she was fat. And that she HAD to eat Lean Cuisine, and SUGAR FREE ICE CREAM- like does he not know that stuff has ASPERTINE! What a Jerk.

I also went to Ross today. I saw a cute little girl who totally reminded me of THIS girl. On average I get to see this comercial like once a night. BUT if I stay home all day with the TV on I get to see it like TWICE. Reason eneough to quit my job.

Also I realized today that the world is good. Yes world, you have redeemed yourself. You kept Danny in the top 12 and sent Tahtiana home. And did you see how weird Tahtiana is? I mean seriously.

And there you have it. Now I must convince myself that I can't be sick again tomorrow.

That seriously sounds like an amazing days! There are so many times I wake up in the morning and see the dishes piled up and the laundry and all the other household chores and wish I could stay home and get them done!! I'm glad you had the chance. And thank heavens for no more Tahtiana - she's crazy!!

I love staying home. I thought I would be bored, but I'm so busy and it's way better than an awesome job (I can even handle the poverty).

Funny, as I type this, the commercial with the little oriental girl is on - that's wild!
