Woe is me......



NOT!!!!!!!!
(In reference to the above cartoon)...

I so wish I could take a sick day today. I feel like crap! Feel kind of sick to my stomach....plus, I think I hurt myself exercising last night. I was doing crunches, every time I would come up, my back would pop/crack...now, my tailbone hurts so bad I can barely sit down...I keep having these sharp stabbing pains in that area....I am sure you all wanted to hear that, huh? Anyway....going to make for a long painful work day. It hurts to sit down....and guess what I do all day? Sit at a desk....ouch. The only relief I get is if I am lying down on my side...I would so love to take a sick day and go home. Unfortunately, that is not an option. If I did, the people I work with would get upset...not speak to me for days...wait...they don't speak to me now....still, I would probably get wrote up or something....they have a very low tolerance for people leaving work or calling in. They make you feel like a horrible person if you do. So, I will try and tough it out.

In other news...I had my yearly gynecological appointment yesterday....everything checked out ok...I have to go by his office one morning later this week, before I eat or drink anything, have my cholesterol and blood sugar checked. He also told me to start thinking about getting a mammogram...Yikes...did that make me feel old. He said 40 would be a good time, that gives me just a little over two years....it scares the crap out of me...I have heard so many horror stories about how much it hurts...and, what the hell is up with the scales at a doctors office? Why do they always seem to weigh you more than what you weigh at home? His scales weighed me about 6 lbs heavier than what my scales at home weighed me. I have a good set of scales...they are set exactly right...the scales at my mother in laws house weigh me the same as my scales at home...yet, every single time I go to the doctor..they always weigh me heavier....that totally put me in a bad mood yesterday. I was fully clothed though, so that should allow for a few lbs, right?

We went to a new restaurant last night with the kiddos....it was way overpriced, the food was just mediocre...although the kids did behave fairly well. At least until Max decided to spill his container holding his ketchup all over the place...what a mess. I had on a white skirt and let's just say it may need to be replaced...since some of the ketchup splattered on me when he dropped it. I hate spending $70 on dinner and have it suck so bad...we should have just went to one we were familiar with and where we knew we would get value for our money...oh, well...live and learn I guess.

I think we are going to take the little guys swimming again tonight, after I get off of work. Hopefully I will feel up to it. They are so looking forward to it...I hate the thoughts of disappointing them. I think I will go get them some swim goggles and water toys on my lunch break. That way, they can kind of entertain themselves in case I am too crippled to move off the lounge chair to play with them.

That's it...I have nothing else to talk about. I need coffee..so, I'm off of here...I have to go and make it...because the losers in this office will let the empty pot sit there and burn up before they will make another one.....that pisses me off!


Later....

wait, do we work at the same office??? just kidding... I always feel like that here though... like people get mad if I take time off... I get all worked up about calling out... I wait till I feel like I'm DYING!

Hope you feel better and didn't hurt yourself! and I totally agree about the doctors scales. you'd think it'd be the OTHER way around in case they have to medicate you... to be on the safe side. and just to make you feel better! those are my thoughts:)

I think the nurses step on the back of the scale or something, because I feel the same way.

Hope you feel better - moving is probably the best thing, because it will keep those muscles limber!

feel better, hon!

Well, Dixie, when I had to make coffee all the time and the others had left it to burn, I just added hot water and turned the burner back on. In less than 30 minutes you should have reconstituted coffee. Just watch them swarm to get coffee just made.

If you get caught, tell them that's the way you make it when there is burned coffee. If they want something different they can make it their way for a while.
It works.

I hope you get to feelng better real soon,

I'm so sorry you're feeling yucky! Eat lots of chicken soup and drink more coffee. :)

I hope you feel better soon!

Yes the doc scales weight MUCH heavier than the home ones. Even the ones at the hospital I step on are RIDICULOUS!!

Sorry you're sick. I can't believe your co-workers treat you like that. What's wrong with them. Oh yeah, I hurt myself during crunches all the time too. That's why I don't do them anymore.

Take Ibuprofen for the aches. It is a miracle cure for me. . . . . coffee and work. I don't drink it, but I make is and clean it up.
I get how you feel.
