These days my life is characterized by how I feel. On the days where I've felt horrible, I am in a fog. I have forgotten to show up at school to serve lunch. I've forgotten to write important things on the calendar.
I've lost paperwork. I missed more of the Olympics than I have in all of my life because I can't keep my eyes open. But if I consume huge amounts of this I can survive.
Now I think I really could have a shot at Wheel of Fortune but that Jeopardy is for the birds. I usually change it to Entertainment Tonight because, well, I understand what the heck they're talking about.
Well yesterday I had a relatively good day. School went well. I never got sick. I only chewed 10 pieces of gum and took 12 pills. Honest. I came home, early because of "snow", and did all the laundry. And I made dinner. Now that is huge.
Then, mom needed some blog help, and I answered all her questions. Go Team.
Then I turned on my token Jeopardy- since my blog helping made me miss Wheel of Fortune. And I got 15 answers correct. Now to some that is not a big deal but people I'm not that smart. I have common sense. I don't recall learning about the Czars of Madagascar's eating rituals or famous lines from powerful Norwegian Vikings. I can cook you dinner, sew a dress and give good directions. I even can answer some HTML coding questions but forget the Norwegians. So to answer 15 questions right and before they answered was shocking to say the least. Nate was jumping up and down saying "Go Mom!" Ross rushed in to see what the hype was about and witnessed some of my smarts.
And before you ask what ails me. It's that kind of sickness that will be better in 9 months. And I'm a whopping 9 weeks down.
It was a good day. And I needed to relish in it.
