It took nearly a week, but that sinus infection finally laid me low. I woke up feverish this morning and knew that if I wanted to be able to do everything I had planned for Friday, I’d better get some rest and get over this mess.
Of course, even as I was calling off, I kept thinking that I would be able to cross a zillion things off my to-do list from my spot on the couch. After all, how much effort does it take to sit and comment on assignments on the computer?
I did manage to weigh in on a few papers from my seniors, but after I caught myself typing more comments that looked like oihsoaihfoiahgdoahdoihadg (thankfully not posted), I decided it was best to give in to my sleepiness and take a nap.
It’ll just be a short nap, I rationalized.
I woke up 3 1/2 hours later.
I woke up feeling lousy and proceeded to nap off and on for the rest of the afternoon until I picked up my son.
My son who opted to stay inside with me instead of playing outside with the neighbor kids when the weather was gorgeous outside.
This is a high compliment. The highest, actually.
So he was the cruise director for our mommy-son evening.
He beat me soundly and repeatedly at Cars Monopoly – I love that he doesn’t quite get how the game is supposed to work, as evidenced by him giving me money and property from his pile whenever I ran out.
Then we had brinner and he opted to have a dippy egg for the first time ever. (I don’t know that he was really as into it as he seemed at the beginning, but I appreciate his willingness to try.)
And now we’re watching a He-Man movie…and I now know all of the back story about She-Ra. (Probably more than I ever needed to know, to be honest…but I get to watch it with a pint-sized version of MST3K on the couch next to me, so it’s actually kind of funny.)
I don’t feel a lot better physically, but I do feel better for having had the time to spend with Bryson.
