I’ve been sick. Really sick. Somebody brought some nasty bug with them this year and we all caught it. Cold in the chest accompanied by coughing that makes me think my diaphragm muscles are going to break apart. I even stayed home from school on the first day back. My Facebook teacher friends got tired of me waffling last night and finally kicked me in the patootie (in writing, of course) and told me to call in sick. So I did.
Unlike some of my social media friends, I did not unplug over the holidays. Over the last four days, my iPhone and computer were lifelines to the outside world — to the New Year’s Eve party I couldn’t attend and to various movie and television sites that kept me from complete despair while sick. I could rationalize that I had a chance to watch all these stupid girlie movies that DH would never watch with me, all for the slim monthly cost of Netflix. BTW, did you know that Netflix has a “strong female lead” category? Are you surprised that those are the movies to which I gravitate? No surprise there, I can hear my family saying.
Anyway, I’m glad my machines were here to keep me company and keep me sane. It’s been a week that I don’t want to repeat anytime soon.
