I’ve been so ill today.
When I finally got out of bed I knew I didn’t feel well enough to sit at my desktop computer to check my email. I get tons of email each day – a good portion of spam, mixed with mail from the five mailing lists I run, blogroll requests (which I haven’t taken care of today, sorry!), comments on our sites, personal emails and direct emails about sick animals (has to do with my mailing lists and websites). So I guess after listing all that you won’t be so surprised when I say that I get 1,000 to 1,5000 emails each day? It takes a long time to go through that pile and I just couldn’t sit at the desktop computer to do that today.
So I lay down on the couch and took care of the email that I’ve set up to be collected on the laptop. I’ll still have more to deal with when I turn the desktop on, but half of it’s been managed in some way or another.
As I went through my mail I was having a lot of pain so I asked my husband to bring me half a percocet. I almost never take percs during the day. Only at night when I’m hoping they’ll take care of my pain enough to let me get some sleep. I take long acting pain meds every 12 hours, plus other medications, but I hold off on the percocet as it hits me too hard.
The half perc put me to sleep. I slept from about 5 pm until 7:30 pm and I’m so woozy now! It’s not good timing either as I have so much work piling up – mostly for this site. Hopefully I’ll perk up soon and feel well enough to do some of the work that needs to be finished!
I just remembered the laundry! I’ve still got to fold and put away all the kids bedding, sheets and towels that I had to do after having a houseful of guests last weekend! Oh boy.
