COUGH!

So, I figured this morning I would wake up with a nice case of bronchitis.  Well so far nothing.  I guess this could be chalked up to a good thing, the chest yuckiness has gone away, but still coughing up some not so nice stuff.  And I can still breath out of my nose....thank god for that.  So I'm wondering what the hell is wrong with me?  I feel OK, but this cough will not stop.  I actually slept great, didn't cough once until I got out of bed this morning?  Puzzling.  I was going to call the doctor today, but considering I have nothing green oozing from my nose it would be a waste of time and I wouldn't get anything but nasty cough medicine, and probably be told I have some virus.  So therefore I am saving my co pay and riding it out. 

I went home last night with a monster headache from coughing all day.  About an hour before I left work I decided that I would call my grandma to see if she could keep the girl for the night so I could just go home and lay my ass out on the couch in peace without having to yell at the kids every five minutes for picking on each other.  I am glad I did.  It was nice and quiet.  The hubby even made dinner for us.  It was grilled cheese, but still, I just put on my jammies at 5 and huddled under a blanket till I went to bed.  I expecting I was probably going to call in sick today, but since I feel OK, I might as well go. 

Bipolar minion came in first thing this morning complaining about she might have pink eye.  I turned and said to her "you know they sell drops over the counter now for that"  In other words quit your bitching, get some drops, and get back to work.  I'm coughing up a lung here and you still see my ass coming to work EVERYDAY!  At least the boss is gone today.  My biggest decision of the day is going to be what the hell am I going to eat for lunch!  Soup sounds good, maybe some Pho, but that would mean I have to leave my desk heater to go get it.  I'm not sure if I'm willing to do that at this very moment.  It's freezing out there.

So my grandma calls me this morning and says "you picked a great time to get sick,"  "I had to help your daughter make dough and mold it into the shape of NV."  Oh yeah I knew about that and was going to have her do that tonight.  But she read the paper wrong and thought it was due today, so they spent the evening doing most of it last night.  AWESOME, I'm glad to have escaped that nightmare worthless project.  I mean COME ON, do we really have to make this shit.  Cant we draw the state and color it in or something.  Do we really have to go to the extreme of making this crap and molding it, then paint it.  Just for her to get a grade on it, then I chuck it in the trash because it starts to crumble and make a mess when I shove it in the closet and forget about it till I have to clean up the mess because she was rummaging around in her closet and it fell on the floor.  See all sorts of scenarios for this thing that is going to require me to clean.  Thanks you worthless elementary schools, I cant wait till the science fair this spring when I am going to have to do her project for her, like I don't have enough to do with all the homework, reading, WORKING, cooking cleaning, being a taxi cab, changing channels, laundry.  NNNNOOOOO, I think I could find some spare time in my life to do her fucking science fair project too!  Hey here's and IDEA, why don't you start giving them stuff that's on their level that they could do in class.  So I could maybe come home after work and hang out with the kids, not scream at them every night because they need to do homework that they don't want to do and I don't understand.  OK I'm done ranting about school now.  Sorry, it just really irks me.

  1. Thanks for the blog love. It makes my day to discover new readers and their blogs. I love your take on life, although sorry to hear you are under the weather and having to deal with some skiving jackass of a co-worker (but not the lovely one who enjoyed by blog). Looking forward to reading more.

  2. I've had coughing "issues" like this for about a year now (off and on) and they suck balls. I feel your pain. Hot toddies always work for me. The tea soothes/lubricates my throat and once the whiskey kicks in, I don't give a blue hell that my kids are bickering. To the contrary, in my altered state of mind, it's actually quite entertaining.
