A Cold = A very grumpy and lazy Jessica

Ahh folks let me tell you how NOT FUN it is to be sick.  Okay so I'm sure you are all fully aware of this fact but I feel like it has been so long since I have been sick that I forgot.  What's worse is it was just a really bad cold so I couldn't even claim something like the flu or H1N1 that was sure to draw sympathy.  I mean seriously...a cold...get over it Jess.  But let me tell you I was sucking!!

I fell asleep at work!  Shhh don't tell.  I work from home for a reading program and we are in the slow season right now where I am just answering customer service it was Saturday and I mean come on I'm sick on a Saturday and I have top work...from home, that's just a tease...the couch is right there.  I was just resting my eyes for a moment and it wasn't until the obnoxious buzzing that means I have a call coming in woke me up and I looked around trying to remember where I was that I realized I had fallen asleep!!  It was pitiful.

Moral of the story is I have been sick and anti anything that requires me to focus so my blogging and reading has fallen behind.  I think I finished one lonely chapter in a book and that took me about an hour because I kept forgetting what words meant, you know those big words like "the."

The good news is I was finally able to start thinking again today and even read a few more chapters in Lord of the Rings.  I'm almost done...which is good because the month is over so it is time for me to move on to the final book.  More on that tomorrow...or the next day...
