Calling in Sick Today

thrifymommaramblingscallinginsickdayrambleWhat do you write about when you have a sinus infection? You write about how sick you are, and how you have nothing to write about today. At least I'm filling up some space, and technically it's a post. I apologize but I'm really at a loss on what to post today. My head feels like someone is pounding on it with a hammer, and I can't breathe. I look really cute right now with a tissue hanging out my nose. My husband always gets a chuckle. I might try to start a fashion trend. Do you think it will catch on?

Now I have my post written for today so please comment if you think whether or not tissues hanging out your nose will be seen on the runways this spring. Or you might be like me and not care what is fashionable but comfortable. I'm not a stick so those clothes won't look good on me regardless. You can comment on that as well. I don't really care as I'm going back to bed.

It's so funny.. cause in my 20s, I couldn't just call in sick. I had to have fun with it. I was one of the lucky ones that never ever got sick. So I always had to make them outrageous!

As I age, my teeth are paying me back. Tomorrow, I have to get two wisdom teeth extracted. Normally, I would enjoy taking the day off of work, and then "housework" when I get home.

BUT..

haha.. I promised my daughter that we would drive out to Fort Wayne Indiana to "CycleFest" Two of her favorite Sons of Anarchy characters will be there. So.. I could write a blog drugged up tomorrow in the car.

I am sorry about your sinus infection. I hope you feel better soon!

I am sorry to hear that you are sick. In answer to your question on whether or not tissues hanging out of ones nose will catch on I would have to say I do not believe so. Thanks for the interesting post.

I can't help but smile and laugh while reading your post... I wish you feel better soon though. I hate having colds too.. But I think that if designers created gowns made of tissue, then I guess you start your own fashion trend such as tissue hanging out of your nose. lol! Btw, I don't know why ppl starts getting sick esp during new years... :) I joined your GFC too! :D

I'm all for comfort . . .

Sinus infections are miserable. :( Feel better soon!

Thanks everyone. My dad told me to get Zicam. He swears by it so I'll get some tomorrow.

I agree why not. Maybe it would look better if the tissues were all decked out with sequins, feathers, and such. Hopefully the feathers won't tickle your nose otherwise it won't be a pretty sight. These are the thoughts I have when I'm on cold medicine.

Kimmy definitely write your blog all doped up on pain killers. It will make for some very interesting reading. Hopefully you will get well soon, and I would much rather have a sinus infection over having wisdom teeth pulled. Hubby had to have his surgically cut out as they were so impacted. Not fun!

I feel so bad for you, that is awful, but you put quite a funny spin on it! I personally think the tissue hanging out of the nose would be a big hit LOL! Hope you feel better soon,
Janet :)

Sinus infections are the worst :( I have been little under the weather the last couple days but not bad yet. I was sick over the summer with one surprisingly. It did not want to go away! I then stopped taking medications (nothing was prescribed-all over the counter) and I started putting sea salt with a touch of water (yup as a paste) in my nostrils as far up as I could take it. I also drank (warning this is nasty) apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons at a time a couple times a day. This helped me a lot! The sea salt I could handle but the vinegar was tough. I read that if your mucus in your sinuses gets thicker and more yellow or green when taking meds, then the meds are actually making it worse. Not a Dr so I can't say if it is true.

As for the runway, I am sure if you had different designs on the tissues you would look better then some of the off the wall outfits they put on these poor girls!

Hope you feel better quickly!!

Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Hurry up and get better.

The problem with calling in sick when you're self-employed is that, when you call the phone is always busy. LOL

Bonnie said...

Thanks Da Dude! That's really funny.

Dawn I will have to try that. I started using Zicam and it's helping a lot. I'm feeling much better. That is good as my son's birthday party was today.

I feel your pain. I've had a cold for the past 3 days, which I now suspect has turned into a sinus infection or something close to it. Yuck!
