Boo to the Flu

So I'm home yet again for another sick day. Luckily, I think I'm finally on the upswing. I've been experiencing the joys of the flu since Friday afternoon and am starting to get a little bit of cabin fever.

Here's what I've been doing with myself when I wasn't sniffling, sneezing, coughing or blowing my nose:

sleeping. I think I'm officially caught up.

reading. Ive finished books 3 & 4 of the Sookie Stackhouse series, started book 5 and read about 5 magazines from my pile.

watching tv and hulu. I'm all caught up with my tivo'd shows and have discovered Modern Family, which is quite funny.

internet surfing. I'm caught up on all my blog reading and have discovered quite a few more to read. I've also been doing lots of virtual window shopping. Too bad I have no money to spend, especially since I've been missing work. Here's a few of my discoveries:

knitting I finally had the energy to knit a bit yesterday. Plus it helped that I no longer needed to blow my nose every five seconds, just every couple of minutes instead. I'm about 1/4 of the way done with my second fingerless mitten.

I'm hoping today is my last day home. I'm also hoping I have enough energy to maybe scrapbook a little this afternoon. I had originally planned to spend most of Sunday scrapping, since I haven't done it in weeks. So much for that plan. I have a new Studio Calico kit begging to be opened and played with, not to mention some DT deadlines looming.

Cross your fingers that I will be back to work and normal health again tomorrow.

well, at least you've been internet-productive! So that way, when you feel up to scrapping, you won't be distracted by all things www :)
Feel better soon!
