I’m a misery today. Started yesterday and it’s carried over to today.
Caught a rotten cold from my two eldest. So much for hugging them. Or maybe it’s from being in the line of fire of their powerful sneezes? (They do cover their mouths – the force is just too fierce...)
Had an early morning appointment with the doctor yesterday to have blood drawn. And had to fast prior to the appointment. I’m not fond of fasting. It didn’t help matters that I’ve been waking up very early in the morning for months now and had to wait around here for two hours WITHOUT EVEN A CUP OF COFFEE!
The doctor suggested she might as well draw even more blood to save having to do it again during my upcoming annual physical.
Sure, take as many vials as you want. Make me weaker.
And then she told me it was time for my tetanus shot.
“Can it wait?”
“Nope, this is the day.”
“Will I pass out from lack of food, loss of blood and the tetanus glop running through my veins when I drive home?”
Stab and jab.
I made it home safely sporting band-aids on both arms. I passed my middle son on his way to work although he didn’t see me. And, yes, my appointment was that early.
My arm is hurting today. It hurt every time I lay on it last night. And sleeping with a cold is a bitch. So, I’m tired and cranky.
My head is stuffy, my glands are swollen and I ache all over.
Yup, I’m a misery for sure.
Aren’t you glad you don’t have to be around me live and in person?
