Did you ever have that feeling? The feeling that you want to curl up on the couch and not move. If you go spend money, it doesn't make you feel any better and only leaves you broke. You have an unbearable appetite, but eating just makes you feel guilty and fat. You don't feel sick, but you almost wish you WERE so there was some excuse. Time just flies by while you sit motionless and stare at the TV or the computer screen. You even try to occupy your mind by doing more than one thing at a time - reading a magazine while you watch TV and make comments as the kids show you things they are playing with. You don't even get up to shower, but instead just throw on a t-shirt and lounge pants.

Did you? Well, get off your ass and quit your whimpering! :)

It's how I feel today. Since the whole house is sick, we've been confined to the house. The kids have slept off and on all day. I threw out almost all of the halloween candy to remove temptation, but when I went to Boston Market for dinner (couldn't bring myself to cook) I got a big tub of sweet potatoes with my sandwich. I ate half the tub and put the other half up for later tonight.

I MUST find the motivation to get off the couch. I promised the kids they could call their grandmamma, Aunt Michelle and cousin Malorie tonight, and they HAVE to have a bath. I'm still watching them to see whether they need to stay home from school tomorrow. Michael is a little sleepy and has a cough, but that seems to be all. Matthew always gets sick worse when a bug goes through the house (like his mom usually does). He might have to stay home tomorrow unless he gets better tonight.

God, should I just call in sick in the morning so I can try to get out of this funk? Maybe go shopping (if the Matthew boy doesn't have to stay home) and try to get some stuff done around the house? Since I work from home, it's not like I have to take my attitude into an office, so most of the time people don't know what kind of mood I'm in...Unless they piss me off on the phone or in email. I would hate to take this out on someone in the office.

There are several things which will drag you out of The Funque:

1. mail a parcel at the Post Office. wait until the lunch hour, when there will be maximum customers and minimum staff.

2. renew your driver's license in person, at the courthouse. ditto #1 for timing.

3. call your doctor and schedule a complete physical. when she pulls out the rubber gloves, say "i didn't know you cared!" and then .. assume the position.

if none of these work, take 2 aspirin and call me in the morning.
