But seriously, I think I might have a fever. I know I have some kind of a bug, but I don't have a thermometer, so I can't test out the fever theory. I've felt worse in my life, but I've also felt better. Last night, I was hot under the covers, but I was also too cold to throw them off. Gotta love it! Today I feel a little weird when I stand up, but that may be because I've been laying around all day... Not sure I'm going to make it out of pj's.
The strangest thing about it is that I almost don't mind. Don't get me wrong, I would rather be well. I would rather be in my car on the 5 hour drive to see relatives this weekend. I miss them! On the other hand, I feel just bad enough that I clearly had to cancel, but still good enough that I can luxuriate in the fact that when I'm laying around, taking it easy, I'm doing exactly what I should be doing. Normally, I'm either running around like mad, or I'm being lazy, but feeling guilty about all of the things that I should be doing but am not.
Instead, I can watch hulu until I go cross-eyed (what does it say about me that I was watching Biggest Loser while eating cookies before lunch time?), I can write boring blog posts, I can finish a book that I started last night, I can sleep if I feel like sleeping. No guilt! (Well, maybe a little about the cookie.) The only problem is that the weather is gorgeous and I will not be going for a walk or a jog today. Oh, well. I guess you can't have it all!
