For the love of all things holy!

My internet has been down at home for the past few days.
I had no idea how important to my life my computer was until it went down.

What am I supposed to do? Communicate over the phone? Or read a book? Or actually watch a news program??
I feel like I'm living in the dark ages.

I used my feminine wiles to get a cable guy to come visit our home tomorrow evening. It will hopefully be a signal issue that is easily fixed in our building....or i just may cry.

It's Hallow's End in World of Warcraft and I'm missing it!!!! Grumble grumble grumble.

I hate you world.

(I'll have a Rhinebeck update once my internet access decides to play nice.)

I'm Ms. Aponia if you're nasty!

Should I feel special that I have the same medical issue that Janet Jackson has?
Vestibular Migraine

I have never canceled a tour do to it though....but i have never toured so, maybe I have!

Migraines suck....add in vertigo and life is miserable. I get them at least a few times a month, and in situations of high stress I get bunches of them weekly.

.....you learn something every day....

Sick days are not so fun as an adult

After proudly not calling out one day this year due to illness....I went home sick.

I worked three hours, got what I needed done, then walked my long 40 minute trek home, which feels miles longer when breathing out of your nose is not an option.
I stopped, picked up some chilly from a local coffee house and cold medicines from CVS, and went up to my apartment.
My cats where happy to see me but kind of puzzled as to why I was here.

I took an hour nap and now need to drink hot tea and work on a baby sweater I need done by this weekend.

I just wish I had the sense to play hooky when I didn't feel terrible. A mental health day would be nice once and awhile.

Oh well..I'm off to sneeze and blow my nose for the one millionth time today.

Please remember...hand sanitizer is your friend everyone!
