I've been holed up in our apartment since about 4:30 PM Wednesday. I have not gone outside once. I suppose that the stress finally caught up with me in the form of canker sores, a cold, and finally, some really nasty cold sores. Okay, so the canker sores have been nasty too, not to mention extremely painful. I have taken many long naps, watched endless episodes of Buffy and Life Goes On (and a few movies too), and reread some of the Harry Potter books. The break has been nice, but meanwhile, time marches on without me. Which means that I am behind in school, my job, and wedding planning goals. This also means that I have no more sick time left at work, and I'm working on using up my vacation time as well. I don't call lying in bed blowing my nose and rinsing my mouth out with salt water a vacation.
So today I decided to try to do a bit of productive things. I washed the dishes and cleaned the kitchen a bit. Then I got tired and took a nap. Then I watched a couple of episodes of Buffy. I am hoping that tomorrow I will venture out to the grocery store, and that on Monday I will venture back to work. Being sick and alone for several days has made me crave the world again. I'm anxious to get back to it.
