Good morning, y'all, it is Early Grey o'clock on a day where once again, all of the penis-bearing creatures in my life hath outraged me, from my ex-husband all the way down through the smallest of children, and I am attempting to gather my wits and thought I'd say hi.
Just after my last post I fell to the stomach bug that took my children out one by one, and then the very moment that had started to abate, an upper-respiratory bug that I suspect is from somewhere in Asia (for reasons I can't divulge without telling you overmuch about my work-life). I went to Job #1 but got sent immediately home for being mostly-unconscious while upright, and called out of Job #2 yesterday, and now here I am getting ready to go to work a very short and forgiving shift, but still, after two days' rest, sick and filled with The Rage over my ex (who called twice this morning before the first alarm), my husband, (who somehow dropped furniture in the way of our bedroom door from OUTSIDE THE ROOM and required me to get up and lift it clear at the very most achy time of day for me), and two of three children who have learned that "queasy" = no school given that I've recently had to do The Drive Of Shame and fetch pukers but are perfectly fine (and LOUD).
So yes, it's me and the Earl against my achy, congested, bad-attitude-having demeanor, and I think we're fighting a losing battle because at the moment I hate everything but the Earl. I will NOT miss another day of work, however.
How are all of YOU?
