Let Down

Ok - I've not been feelin' 100%. I've got this, this issue with my eye. It started last week and by Friday I looked like a flippin' cyclops. Yeah, not a good look for me, just so you know.

So I broke down and went to the doctor. I do NOT like doctors. I carry insurance but pride myself on the fact I rarely use it. So you know I was feelin' like crap on Friday if it got me to the doctor.

We figure out (eventually) it's an eye infection. Don't know how/when/why, but that's what it was. The drops he gave me are working great, in fact I look almost normal already!! Well, for me anyway.

Doc told me he wanted me to stay home from work until Wednesday. WEDNESDAY?!?!? Sure, no problem. ;-)

So I was home today. Lounging, reading, just relaxing. It was a wonderful day. Tonite I had to get my hair cut. I love that. I get pampered, deep condition (mind OUT of gutter guys!) and generally spoiled. It's one of my favorite things.

Given all that, can anyone explain why - half way home - I suddenly get so damned tired I can't keep my eyes open? I wanted to stop at Fritz's for a few beers and some taco salad and next thing I know I'm ordering it to go. Holy Cow - that's sooooo not like me.

So here I sit, in my jammies with my untouched taco salad too tired to even try to eat it. In fact, I was nodding off while waiting for this flippin' screen to come up.

Hmmmm - maybe I'll have to schedule another appointment just so I can appreciate the spoiling more next time. I'd hate to think I'd miss that this month.

You can be pampered - that's great.
But please - never write that you paid someone to give you a facial...... It's just too much....

But _Jon....a facial is my VERY favoritie treat. Ahh the days - the days when I got one every 6 weeks. Now THAT was decadance. ;-)

A day with out the stress of work, being pampered, you're body probably never really tensed up, thus after the relaxing time you had having your hear done, you're body was ready to take a nap.

And we see how well you followed the doctor's orders to stay home, don't we? I'm going to send him a letter explaining to him how he needs to talk to you:

"Tammi, this is what I'm going to need for you to do..."
