I took last night as Joanna Time. I went straight home from work and interacted with no one else for the rest of the day. I did some laundry and I changed the sheets on my bed and I cleaned the bathroom. I cooked real food- chicken tacos! I purposely made lots so as to be able to bring some for lunch for a few days. I watched a whole lot of TV. I hydrated myself continuously. I was in bed by 11:30. It was a good evening, just as dull as I needed it to be.
Today I continue on my extremely gradual descent into illness. More coughs today. A few more sneezes. More disconnect from the world around me. But still not actively sick, so I can't so much be not at work. Ugh.
And Mother's Day is this weekend, and I still have no gift for my mommy. Which means a shopping trip is in my future. When all I really want is to curl up in my super-comfortable chair and watch DVDs and drink juice. Alas for me.
