Still feeling a bit sick. No temperature which is a little weird. Nose keeps running, sneezing, and I feel exhausted. I hate being sick.
It always reminds me of the time I had pneumonia. I fear it will get worse and that I will almost die (again).
But I’m not the type to just lay in bed. I’m not a homebody which means even when I’m sick I still feel the need to keep moving around. To me, homebody is just a fancy way of saying “I’m lazy with a professional title”. That is not me. I’m always up and out. Even when I’m at home I always manage my time with something useful.
So the day started as if I was healthy. I got up, got dressed, watched a show on Netflix, then I was off to get a haircut. My Marine drill is tomorrow so I didn’t really even have a choice in that.
I got to my haircut place and the girl that normally does my hair sat me down in the chair. We talked for a bit. Like about work, life, and other things. She’s like the alternative type. You know, tattoos, piercings, and she had black and blue hair. I asked her where she got her tattoos. She mentioned this guy that she used to date did them for her. She asked what I wanted. I told her I wasn’t too sure, but I knew I was going to at least get half sleeves before I get old.
She asked me why half sleeves and not full. I told her with being in the military and doing a law enforcement type job I told her that the rules don’t allow it. She said the stereotypical response of saying “you can die for our country but you better not have tattoos showing”. We both laughed at that. She then recommended a few places and told me to tell her when I get my tattoo(s). I told her that if I get them within the year I would let her know.
Soon after the haircut session I went to grab some lunch. I go to this chinese take out place every once and a while. There are these two kids (like 3 and 5) who alway love it when I show up. Obviously they are the owners kids and they are both chinese. Some customers kept thinking they were my kids too. They are always a lot of fun to hang out with while waiting for my food. They always run up to me and show me their toys they have.
One of the kids, a boy, shows me his Woody doll. He keeps sticking his butt at me and makes a fart noise. I always play along and plug my nose and make a nasty face. Once I get my food they run to the door and open it for me. The kids always want me to come back. Every time I go there it makes me wonder if I’ll be a great dad or if I’m just good with kids. It’s a scary and weird thought at times. At least if it ever happens people know I’m great with kids.
So then I was on my way home. I stopped and grabbed a few things from the drug store (meds an powerades). I didn’t want to just bury myself in blankets and sip on some tea while watching Netflix. Again, I’m a mover and shaker type. I hit the weights. I told myself just because I’m a little “under the weather” that doesn’t excuse me from doing anything to improve my muscles.
So I did a quick body workout. I didn’t realize how much my body has been drained of energy. My usual routine felt like it was my first time lifting. Needless to say I didn’t do as many sets and reps like I normally do.
I then laid out everything I needed for the day.
Yes that is a beer in the background. Sometimes you just need one when things get stressful. Being sick stresses me out. I hate not knowing when it’ll go away. I hate working when I’m sick. And all I want to do is to feel better before I take a physical agility test for a potential new job next weekend.
But… I guess now that everything I needed to do is done I can finally lay on the couch. I’m looking at new blog formats and layouts. It was also payday so a lot of online shopping…
I also turned my hoodie into a snuggie.
I got tired of the hoodie bunching up on me. Whoever designed the snuggie I really hate them for making something so simple and making millions from it.
I don’t know how she can sleep like that but I’ll take it as a sign. I think Melon tried to tell me to take it easy, but it didn’t work. So instead I think she’s showing me (in a very weird way) that I should probably lay with her on the couch.
My new format and layout of the blog should be up tonight.
Once I do get it up I’ll let you guys know.
But for now it’s laying on the couch sending goofy Snapchats to my friends.
If you feel like joining me lets know (the Snapchat part not the sick part).
