someone help me!

I am so tired of coughing. I have been sick now for almost two weeks, and it really sucks. I went to Student Health yesterday and got a few medications. Well, the medicine cleared up my sinus drainage, but my coughing hasn't stopped yet. I'm taking some really nasty orange cough syrup - you have to shake it up, and then when you swallow it, it leaves little chunks in your mouth - seriously ... and that medicine isn't helping, so I don't know what's up. I really think it would feel better to cough and actually cough something up instead of just these dry coughs. My body is aching from coughing.

Also, I now do not feel like eating. I just do not have the energy left to eat, and nothing sounds good - except maybe popsicles. Maybe. Unfortunately, I am on campus and I have no popsicles. I mean, yes I have been wanting to lose a few pounds, but I didn't want to do it this way!

Someone make me better. Please.

Well, I finished my Medical Terminology midterm test, after putting it off all week. It's an online course, and about one-third of the questions on the quizzes and tests are not actually in our textbook, which is all that we have to go on. No lectures, no assignments ... we just have the textbook. It's pretty bad when you are taking a quiz for Chapter 7 and one of the questions says "See Chapter 15." At least with the quizzes, we can retake them as many times as we want and there are no time limits. But the midterm has some of the exact same questions, and we can only take that one once, plus it is timed.

But that's out of the way now at least. Now my current worry is whether or not I will be calling Bingo tonight. We do this as a fundraiser for Psychology Club, and I am one of the few-not so proud-people trained to call the numbers. I am already covering for someone else who is out of town, but I have been sick for over a week and it's not getting better. I'm sure that all the nice Bingo players do not want to hear me hack up a lung onto the microphone every two minutes. Hopefully I can make some arrangements so that someone else can do it. If I have to go, I guess I will go - I won't really have much of a choice. I really just want to stay home and sleep. Tomorrow I will be making a visit to Student Health.

Off to make more phone calls ...

what a crazy world ...

This is so not the next game that my husband will be playing at one of his game nights. Do people not have enough drama in real life, so they have to go out and buy games that will create drama? Wow. That's sad. Although ... if this game was free I would probably play it.

Check out our fat cat Nople. One of her favorite things to do is just randomly flop down onto her back with her legs up in the air. Posted by Picasa

the beginning

So I've been playing around with the idea of having a blog. I'm not really sure why. I enjoy reading them though, so why not have one of my own? My plan, of course, is to keep writing in the thing to make it worthwhile, but I usually peter out after about a week. I am interested in photoblogging though, and since I need an excuse to take more pictures, and since I did purchase a new cell phone featuring a camera, I may have enough motivation.Will I actually continue writing in this blog for longer than it actually takes me to wash all the dirty dishes in the kitchen (longer than it should take, lemme tell ya)? The suspense is killing me! Stay tuned ...
