I stayed home from school on Tuesday to get feeling better which didn't really help, but come Friday I was feeling really awful again. Luckily some of the teachers at school offered to take over my class Friday afternoon, so I left early to come home and rest up and hopefully get feeling a little better before my birthday! On Friday night we just relaxed on the couch watching TV, cuddling with the dogs, eating Chinese food, and hoping I'd make a miraculous recovery come Saturday morning.
We got up on my birthday and I was determined to figure out a way to watch Damages Season 3! I wasn't feeling great, and snuggling on the couch with my favorite new show was not going to allude me. After about 2 hours of messing with it, I bought Season 3 on Amazon Video On Demand, and was able to stream it through our PlayStation3 onto the TV. After finally getting it all set up, I fell asleep half way through the first episode... so much for my great idea.
(For those of you who don't watch Damages, Season 3 hasn't been released on DVD yet, and I have no patience to wait).
After I woke up from my nap, I thew myself a good pity party and had a good ugly cry about being sick on my birthday, and then I realized I was feeling a million times better (talk about being dramatic).
Now it was my birthday, I was feeling better, and we had no plans because we were sure my illness would linger clear through the weekend.
So, what did I do? I dragged my poor husband to HomeGoods, we went to get cocktails and appetizers, then went to see Black Swan.
Now next year I want to plan something really fun far in advance and overdose on vitamin C to insure that I won't be sick. (Long weekend meet-up somewhere warm to celebrate our birthdays VABelle?)
