I hate to say it but I’m quite happy my poor little Poka Bear’s sick today. I really need this time at home.
Work has been uber-stressful for a while and it’s only getting worse. I’ve been dragging myself in sick for months. The stress has killed my imune system. I’ve been getting headaches all the time and drugs no longer do anything for them. My back’s a gnarly mess of knots even my massage therapist boyfriend can’t quite get rid of. I’ve been getting heartburn too.
So it’s good to be home. PB’s coloring in the kitchen, he seems to be doing much better. I get to hang out with my computer for a while. We’re loading music on the Nano. I’m wearing old sweats and sipping coffee. And refusing to think about work.
