The view from the sick couch...

    After coming down with a crummy stomach virus, and sleeping most of yesterday away, I'm spending today slowly returning to the world of the living. My random observations:

    Being sick sucks. Especially when the 'to-do' list is a mile long.
    The phone rings more and more the worse you feel.
    Thank goodness for Diet 7-Up. (I gag on sugar pop).
    There are way, way too many prescription medicine commercials on TV.
    How come the foreclosed houses commercial always advertises that those whose last names begin with A-K (or whatever letter it is) may begin calling today, the last half of the alphabet may begin calling tomorrow, but then they run the same commercial the next day. Why are they discriminating against the last half of the alphabet? Why can't they ever call that number?
    This is one of those times when working from home actually has a big advantage.
    Thank goodness for laptop computers.

    Take it easy...
    Read Sid.
    Make some soup...
    Pull the blanket up...

    Say... can anyone recommend a good video she can watch?

    I'd like to NOT resume throwing up if you don't mind.

    One more to add to the list...
    Kid calls from school reminding sick mom that he needs a ride home today because of an after-school project.

    But reading Sid, that's a fate I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

    Another observation:

    The Quiznos commercial must cease. Immediately.

    But we need more Geico commercials. Gecko and cavemen, those crack me up.

    I spent all day yesterday sleeping on the couch, Rosie. I felt semi-human today, so it was a marked improvement. That sleep thing must work.

    Actually, Quiznos itself should cease to exist. Haven't had a good meal there yet. Whatever that crap is that they put on their sandwiches sure ruins good meat.

    I think it does. Glad you're feeling better, Shottie.

    Soda crackers, Ginger Ale and rest, as much as you can with kids. Get well. :)

    You too, Shot.

    I very rarely get sick but had to go to the doctor today. It's never a good sign when the doc recoils as he looks down your throat. Strep throat.
