Guess who's home sick?  I know...bummer.  Just when I thought I had beaten this flu season :/

I survived an onslaught of bugs 3-4 weeks ago when it seemed like half of everyone I knew was sick.  But sure enough, after dragging my crummy-feeling self to work on Tuesday morning, I found myself packing my laptop and on a bus heading back home.  Then I slept for about 15 hours, with one 2-hour period of consciousness in the midst of that.  But I'm really hoping to be back at work tomorrow!  I'm kind of going stir crazy.  A girl can only take so much laying around, trying to push through sick-brain to work, and drinking gallons of orange juice.  Plus, this sickie thing is eating into my vacation days...grr!  I can do some work from home, which helps a bit, but I'm ready to be back to normal.

How about a few random thoughts to hold us over:

  • I joined twitter!!  You can find me @iwaitandhope :)  And yes, the large majority of people I follow are fictional or fandom related :/  So if you're a real person on there, please follow me so I can follow you back!
  • I'm finally going to buy a car :D  I start looking next month (which is also next week!).  I've been kind of slow on this front... or at least there were other priorities.  But I really wanted to pay cash for a decent car.  And I'm going to be able to!
  • Once I have the car, I'll have greater freedom to road trip!! I'm thinking of finding a weekend to go visit my brother in Spokane, or one to go visit Portland.  Portland's been calling my name lately.  Maybe I'll just have to find weekends to do both!
  • I've been on an old-movie kick lately... seriously, there are some reeeally good ones!  More to come on that.
  • Oscars this weekend!  So excited :)

With that, I'm off to take even more Vitamin C and a nap.  Loves!


  1. Girl! I've been wanting to go to Portland for months!! What a fun list of new things :)

  2. Hope you are feeling better! Or you better by Sunday! ;)

    And I second Kayla and you, I have been wanting to go to Portland for a while now. I was thinking a train trip to Portland would be fun. Or road-trip, that's cool too. We should all plan something. I know Becca & Regina would probably be up for it too.

  3. Sooo...when are we going?!?! :)
