More cranky -- with a little sick thrown in for good measure

Craptitude begets craptitude.

Now THAT'S profound, people. Someone should write that down.

Monday was a craptastic day. Tuesday morning, when I vented my spleen (ooh, I'm on a vocabularistic roll here!), about how cranky I was, I had no idea what was in my immediate future.

The dizzies.

The spinny, icky, stomach-lurching, can't-walk-a-straight-line dizzies.

So I got up, went to the gym, exercised so I can plan for more weight gain (gah!) and then walked toward the locker room ... only I wasn't exactly walking toward the locker room.

It wasn't MY fault the floor was moving violently from side to side!

And just for the record, it is NOT fun to drive home when you feel like the road is jiggling. I really was concerned I could have been pulled over for drunk driving. Yes, I was a danger to myself and others. Not proud of it, but there it is.

And I still had to take the Roo-girl and that nasty Carpool Girl to school. I started dialing, looking for likely victims volunteers and found ...

No one.

So I got back in the car (Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!) and c.a.r.e.f.u.l.l.l.y. drive my precious cargo to school.

Then, because the free world depended on it, I had to go to the post office to make sure that my request for extension IN WHICH I HAD TO INCLUDE BIG BUCKS made its way to the state capital with the appropriately timely postmark on it.

I've driven there a zillion times -- and guess how many wrong turns I took?

Answer: one major, plus three minors in my attempt to correct the major.


With that task taken care of, I took appropriate drugs (which clearly state that I should not operate heavy machinery under its influence -- as if I should have been doing so before!) and crawled back into bed.

Where I watched pictures on my bedroom wall do a little jig -- all by themselves.


I have nowhere clever to go with this, except to say this day sucked rocks.

That makes two in a row.

Can we go for three?

Dude... I am soooo sending the good vibes your way. Doing a happy Janet dance too.

(And if those don't work, I've got milano cookies and a credit at the adult novelty store that you're more than welcome to. :)

vocabularistic? You are guaranteed the best week ever just for using that word. Next week. Just wait.

nikki said...

I think the crappy mood is spreading. I've got it too.

Simply Jenn said...

Really, Janet, let's NOT go for three days in a row. Just stick with the two, okay?

And see a doctor, but don't drive yourself. Feel better soon!

Kaytabug said...

Oh hon I hope today is a much better day but you know that tomorrow will be even brighter and everything will be right with the world...sing it with me...

"The sun'll come out Tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that Tomorrow there'll be sun."

I hope you are feeling better today.

You damn overachiever, you. Two is good enough, you don't need to go for the world record. You can do it!

LceeL said...

Call a friend - hell, call a cab. Go to the Doctor. And please be okay.

Jenni said...

I hope you feel better soon. And please, don't drive in that condition! Just lay in bed and watch the pictures do their dance.

Burfica said...

oh man what do you have???

sounded almost like a case of vertigo.

I got lucky, I ate lumpy, chunky mayo and didn't get sick. hahahahaha

Okay I shouldn't rub it in, cuz little things like oh say shredded wheat can make me sick.

(I have IBS) so depends on the day.

anglophilefootballfanatic said...

Oh, dear. I was wondering what happened to you yesterday. Poor J. Sounds like vertigo for sure. And, just because I love making you laugh: you aren't pg are you?

Kelley said...

What sort of rocks were you sucking? Little crystal ones????

Smootches for a speedy recovery, if not for you, for the poor bastards that are sharing the road with you!

Mandy said...
