I'm sick!!!!

I wasn't feeling great at work today, but I figured, "Eh. I'm just tired. I'll go to bed early."

By afternoon, I called my sister-in-law to cancel our plans.

By end of day when John brought the newly-repaired Scion to my office to swap cars with me before he went to meet his buddy, he kissed my forehead and said, "Do you have a fever?"

I powered down my computer and walked out the door at 5:45pm. I won't bore you with the frustrating details that prevented me from getting in my door until 7:15pm, but by that time even the smallest obstacle brought tears...including not being able to find the remote control in my bedroom.

Now, I'm full of advil. And though I'm still cold and achy, I have on one of John's long sleeve shirts and the most amazing snuggly cotton thermal socks. (You know, the kind that look like sock monkeys.) I'd take a picture, but if the camera isn't an easy find it could potentially cause a breakdown. I'm not willing to risk it.
