The above image explains my recent absence from blogville. I had the worst flu bug. I missed over a week of work. I just couldn't do anything. I do appreciate the blogger friends who messaged me to check in and see if I was ok. And also my local friends who delivered me treats and medications. I've been back to work for a couple of days and I'm feeling better despite the nagging cough that won't seem to leave. I had several fever-induced stories to share but they seem less funny in the light of a normal body temperature.
Now for "the good" part. My car registration had expired. I knew I was pushing my luck everyday so today I had to go the the Registry of Motor Vehicles. And I only had time on my lunch break. This place is usually a nightmare of waiting in lines forever and I figured lunch time would be the worst. I walked in, took a number from the machine and turned the corner........the place was empty. EMPTY.....that never happens! I was in and out in a matter of minutes. I should have left there and bought a lottery ticket because it felt like my lucky day.
.....but things changed again later. I had a nice bowl of leftover pasta and sauce in the fridge for supper. Grocery shopping is tomorrow night so this was going to be perfect. I put it in a bowl, heated in the microwave and on my way to the table......it slipped out of my hands
On the floor, on my pants, on the front of the oven and the cupboards. The bowl resting upside down about 2 feet away from this mess...... Not only was I mad, I was also still hungry and now had to scrub the kitchen! Supper consisted of a bag of chips and a handful of cookies while I muttered about the mess and how stupid I was.
This weekend I will get back around to your blogs.
