A Sick New Year

And I don't mean the good kind of sick. I started feeling bad on Tuesday, and by Wednesday morning I felt miserable so I stayed home from work. I spent half the day sleeping, and the other half watching House with James. We celebrated the new year by staying awake until midnight on our little pallet in front of the fire place.

I felt a little better on the first and started my massive closet purge (more on that later!) but I overworked myself and felt miserable again by the end of the day. I dragged myself to work Friday morning because my job is the busiest the first 5 to 10 days of the month, especially at the start of the new year. I made it until noon before heading back home to crash. And that's what I've been doing. Sleeping and taking medicine and watching House and Doctor Who. Yesterday I did manage to get the house cleaned up a bit, but my closet purge isn't quite finished. I might have clothes scattered and stacked up all over our bedroom and living room....

The Purge Aftermath

Ok, I definitely do! But I've been having to do little bursts of work followed by rest. I'm not sure what I had, it could've been the flu but I waited too long to start Tamiflu if it was. I'm still not 100%, but I'm getting better. I even went to see the Book of Mormon last night! I didn't really want to, staying in bed sounded much better. But I'm glad I went. It was an interesting musical. I laughed a lot while also fearing that lightning might strike. It definitely isn't for kids (lots and lots of adult-only content).

The Book of Mormon

So that's been my 2015 so far. A sick new year. But it's a new day Scarlett and I'm ready to really get the new year started off right. The husband and I may even go out to dinner tonight since our big new year's dinner consisted of ordering pizza so neither of us had to cook or leave the house to go pick dinner up. Or we may go crazy and make ourselves go to Walmart to buy groceries. We've only been putting that off for a week or longer... 

Either way, happy Monday y'all!
