Home Sick not Homesick--well, not really.

Well, I went home from work sick today, because I felt horrible. It wasn't like I was going to throw up or anything, but I wasn't working at even half my normal capacity. My eyes were dry and scratchy. My head was throbbing, and I was exhausted.

I would imagine a hangover feels something like that.

Since I had tommorow off, I asked if I could go home and work on Thursday instead. They agreed and I went home after only working 1.5 hours.

On the drive home, I didn't even put my music on. I just drove home, eyes half closed, driving in a daze. Before I knew it I was home, and I flopped onto bed and slept for almost 4 hours.

I still don't feel that much better. I had some lunch (a ham sandwich) and two excedrin, and those seem to be helping with the headache, but I need to drink a lot of water/fluids too. I think that might be why I am so sore and low energy.

It really motivates me to get a better diet. Cooking and planning meals for one person is terrible! It's such a hassle to do all that work just for yourself. I'd much rather cook for a group than just myself.

Oh well.

Called Emerson College's Financial Aid Department and asked them why the heck I hadn't received my award letter yet. They said it has been created, but it hasn't been mailed out yet and that I can expect it in 7-10 business days. Argh. I'm so worried.

I did laundry the other day, and today I'll probably have to do some grocery shopping. Tanner has expressed interest in learning how to drive a standard transmission, but won't commit to a time to learn. Hopefully I can convince him to try it tonight.

This friday, Jonathan Paula comes to town for the weekend, and we are going to rock out and explore the town(s) where I grew up. Perhaps he will force me to go to the beach or OOB (Old Orchard Beach, for those who don't know) niether of which I have done in years. My plans for his visit include: going to mardens (comparing it to Building 19 & 7/8ths), Showing him the houses I used to live in, walking around town looking at all the awesome architecture and mill buildings, playing Mario Kart Double Dash on the Game cube, tracking down one of the two deloreans in the Lewiston Auburn area and getting some pictures, Maybe playing age of mythology on the LAN, maybe visiting where I work or going to the LL Bean Flagship store, if the darn candlepin bowling alley hadn't closed recently, I'd have taken him there but alas. What else? That's probably about it, since there ain't a helluva lot to do in this town. We'll probably visit all the parks and landmarks, too.

Lot's of photo ops.

Well, I guess that'll end this post for today, but hopefully all is well with everyone. Until next time!

You are correct sir - I will force you to do all of those things.

I was heart broken as well when I went home last to see that Auburn Lanes Candlepin bowling had closed. That was a landmark Northeast thing and it has been taken from Lewiston-Auburn!!!
