“who took over your body because I’m definitely not talking to the same person! where’s your enthusiasm?”

That’s what my friend said to me when we were talking on the phone. Actually, he was talking, I was just attempting to talk. I feel like shit. In fact, I feel so tired that I couldn’t bring myself to read my favorite political blogs and that’s when you know the bad news bears are roaming around town.

This 30 for 30 picture pretty much defines today. It took so much effort to get out of bed and resist the urge to call in sick. Then I thought it over and realized that I was scheduled to work for three and a half hours anyway. I figured that it wasn’t worth it and I would be able to have the rest of the day to myself after work.

If any of the 30 for 30ers are curious, the suit is from New York and Company, I bought the white sleeve tee at Kohl’s, thought this scarf from The Pear Tree in Canton, NY was so darling, I had to have it, and I wore my trusty White Mountain black suede boots. Unlike the flats I wore yesterday that probably played a supporting role in developing this cold o’ mine, the boots are insulated. Oh! And the tissues are Kleenex, but I don’t think Kendi counts them towards the challenge.

A final note. I was in Price Chopper and purchasing some comfort food, tissues, meds, soup, and other good foodstuffs. The bill came to $38.00. I said…

here’s my advantage card!

BOOM! The bill came down to $34.00 and I had my big girl moment of the day.

I’m going to curl into bed right now.
