I’ve been on super pneumonia medication for three days now. And for three days I’ve had some awful vertigo. We’re not just talking dizzy here. We’re talking, room is spinning, feel like the floor is uneven. If I turn my head too fast, move my eyes too fast or move around the house too fast, whooooooaaaaa.
Even the old college trick of putting my hand on the wall to stop the spins? DOES NOT WORK. This must be what y’all feel like when you read my blog. GUFFAW.
And, for added pleasure, I was called for Jury Duty. YES WAY. I know, right? Because yesterday wasn’t enough fun. Just give me Jury Duty! So I can sit there in an uncomfortable chair all day, waiting to be called, with two herniated discs. I think that would be great. AND! It’s during a week when Bugaboo has off from school! And it’s not like I could send him to daycare or anything. Sitters for Bugaboo are few and far between, yo. Could you picture him at some standard place? Swinging from ceiling lights, shoving himself in a bookcase, climbing under a rug. Oy. So, if I get picked, I HAVE to have DH take that time off from work. I’m praying I get excused for that reason alone. There’s no way we can make it work. I tells ya, they only ever call me for Jury Duty when I either just had a new baby (both times I came home, the DAY I came home, a jury duty summons was waiting for me) or when Bugaboo has spring break. Sheesh. Get it together, courthouse!
Do you know how hard it is to type with a puppy head on your elbow? She ain’t getting the hint, either. How the heck can a super skinny dog like this possible have a head that weighs this much?
(Yes, I know. I jump around a lot. HELLO! Where do you think my kids get their ADHD from, hmmm? Not like it came from a cereal box.)
I can’t wait to meet with the SCHOOL DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT today. While I have Vertigo. And am hacking up the remainder of my lung contents. Absosmurfly awesome.
