Thursday Thirteen #25 - Things I did while sick

What another sick post? Well, last one hopefully. Today was the first time in 12 days that I have seen a normal temperature. Woo hoo!! Three doctor visits and some free samples of Levaquin and Advair later, I am finally on the mend. Here are some things I did to pass the time in the last couple weeks (besides sleeping and coughing).
  1. I discovered Jeff Buckley. I had not heard of him before and suddenly 10 years after his death I'm mourning him anew. He and Kurt Cobain were born within 2 months of me but I never related to Kurt's music. Jeff is more of a kindred spirit. This video of Hallelujah (written by Leonard Cohen) brought tears to my eyes and I listened to the song on repeat on my iPod for hours in my fevered state. Check out Grace as well.

  2. I uploaded pictures from the kids camera (notice last post). I had to delete about 95% of the pictures of fingers, knees, the ceiling, the cracks in the wall, me in my underwear, etc.
  3. I organized in Flickr like crazy. I created six new sets and tagged over 200 photos. I have about 1500 more to go before I'm all caught up. Check out our Best of 2007 set.
  4. I put actual photos from last year into a photo album. Now that I'm caught up, I ordered a bunch of prints for this year.
  5. I paid bills online and had to fight a stupid charge from Don't ever visit this site as they will automatically start charging you after 30 days and I'm usually a good reader of fine print.
  6. I wrapped Christmas presents. There were a few hours when both kids were out of the house and I was strong enough to venture out of the bed (heavily sanitized). Alas, now Adam is sick (something different), so we are back to a full house.
  7. I mastered Cubis 2. Adam was so jealous when he heard that I finished all twenty levels in the web game. A few times.
  8. I played Bejeweled 2. And Jewel Quest, and Gem Shop and Chuzzle.
  9. I played Hearts online. My old name moonfever was gone on and I couldn't even get moonfever0 and had to settle for moonfever3 as moonfever4 (my favorite number) was taken too! I lost the game, but I did manage to shoot the moon.
  10. I ordered a side order of yeast infection to go along with my antibiotics. I hate how antibiotics mess with that delicate ecosystem down there...
  11. I yelled at the kids. Apparently, Doug says that I take it right up to yelling and don't even build up to it. Most of the time it was something like "Don't touch me!" as if I had the Ebola virus.
  12. I changed the sheets on the bed twice.
  13. I can't think of anything else, I'm sick after all!

If you can do all that while sick in bed, think what you can accomplish when you're healthy, up and about!

I love Hearts online! Great way to waste time!

And happy belated 500 posts!

Wow, you get much more done when you're sick than I EVER get done when I'm fully awake. You not only have the christmas presents bought, but also WRAPPED? You are a miracle mom!

You have my deepest sympathy for the antibiotic side effects. Sometimes I'm very glad I'm not so young anymore....The Flatland Almanack --Damozel
