1. I called in sick today. I woke up feeling awful. (And, no, it is not residual damage from Saturday night, because I felt fine yesterday afternoon.) I got up, took a shower, had a cup of coffee and decided I just was not going to be able to go to the office today. So I laid back down to watch the Today show, and before I knew it I was asleep. And I woke up at NOON. A total of 15 hours of sleep last night. I hope it’s not the pig flu.
2. As I type this, Honey is on a boat floating around the Caribbean. At the beginning of the year, a friend who lives in Florida and who cruises frequently, invited us along on a six night cruise that was one helluva deal. I waxed and waned on whether to go, and finally told Honey to go without me. Now I am green with envy because as I sit at home, sick, in the rain, Honey is at port in Key West sipping Bloody Marys.
3. My little brother thinks he is hilarious. You call him, and the phone will ring a few times, and then you hear “Hey”, of course you respond, and then you hear him say “what’s going on?” or “how ya doing?” or something. Of course, you respond again. Finally, you hear “Just kidding, you’ve got my voicemail.” BEEP. And my stupid ass falls for it everytime.
4. I’ve managed, somehow, to drop a few pounds the past few months. The scale confirms this, but looking in the mirror, I can’t tell so much. But, apparently, I should have turned around because all the pounds have fallen off of my ass. How do I know this? I stepped up to the toilet the other day to answer nature’s call. Unzip, unbutton, and start the stream. And BAM my pants fall completely to the floor. So my workout routine has got to include some glute exercises (for all you ipod and iphone folks, there’s a great cheap app called “ifitness” that has record keeping logs, suggested workouts, etc. that I recommend)
