Well here I sit...in my bed
extending my Thanksgiving break one more day.
When I should actually be sitting on campus
finishing the literally million things that have to get done the next 10 days.
One would think this would be a good thing.
Who wouldn't choose a nice day in bed over a stressful day on campus?
Well...when you are on day seven of a sore throat (that forces you to cringe to swallow)
and day 5 of severe pink eye....
NO ONE would choose staying home, i'm sure of it!
I should be on week two of marathon training.
But breathing, swallowing, and seeing are pretty vital things when it comes to running.
So ...one ten mile run is all I have to show for it.
I should have had a perfect thanksgiving break full of fun and family.
Instead I got puffy eyes, dry hands from excessive hand sanitizer, and a big belly from eating and never moving.
I have successfully achieved one thing though...
I have extreme empathy for the vampires i've grown to love so much.
It is a HARD life to have really red eyes.
I empathize completely.
Well, now I leave, back to my attempted sleep.
Which is halted by the child banging on the piano downstairs
and the roofers banging on the ceiling above.
Woe is me.
I'm SO sick and tired of being sick, red eyed, sore throat-ed, and tired!
In case you think I am only cranky and whiney,
I should maybe remind you I am also very thankful, Thanksgiving will do that to ya...
i'll spare you that list though ;) ;)
