This has been my view for the last couple of days. It's the foot of my Please Kill Me bed. I've been feverishly tossing and turning in it since the other day when an invisible being poured crushed glass, gasoline, and a burning match down my throat. That's what it felt like anyway. I often have throat problems and usually I just drink a lot of tea and take a lot of advil and keep going with my day. So, you'd think that when I told people I had to cancel plans because I was sick, they'd just say ok. No, people kept calling (Rule number 1: Don't CALL people when they are sick with awful throat issues. They just want to sleep, not talk). I loved all the messages (yes, more than 2) from friends that went like this: I know you're home sick, so could you just do this one thing for me that might take like 3 hours and you'd be required to stand up and/or think? And then when I didn't call them back they'd call again to see if I'd done whatever they wanted. WTF? Why do I know so many people who are incapable of being compassionate ? Do YOU want to do stuff for people when you are sick? I've been SO SICK that I even canceled meeting Karen and she had a Coach purse to give me (a present!). And, I canceled my hair appointment!!!!! Holy Mother of Buddha!! I have made a follow-up trip to the doctor who is suggests that if this doesn't work in a week, we'll try something else. Tomorrow, I am going to pretend it has been a week and ask for my throat to be amputated. And, if I am slow in responding to email, please don't take it personally. I AM reading my email and see many really nice messages from people. Awe! THANK YOU.
Last night, in an effort to make me feel better and in an effort to heal his lunch buddy* fast, my husband offered to go get me some of my favorite Mint Chip ice cream. He went to the store and came back with one of those small 4 ounce containers of ice cream. So funny! I hope he's going back for more tonight!
I am so annoyed with myself for forgetting to alert you to a FREE workshop/challenge/ thing inspired by Journal Revolution going on over at the TallyScrapper Blog. I am sure it is not too late to get in on the fun. Remember, the class is FREE so enjoy the community atmosphere and inspiration you receive from the artists there. Here's the opening message and here's one of the prompts messages to get you started. Thanks to Rachel at TallyScrapper for hosting the workshop and using her own magic to inspire, too!
