Gimme a Break here....

Today it feels like my entire life needs to be run from inside a giant "sippy cup".

I woke up this morning with a stomach ache - this is not uncommon side effect and is managable .. Breakfast and some tylenol solved that.

Then I left for work ... Just walking to the metro had me woozy, again a side effect that I have delt with... this just means that it is a good day to take a "RECOVERY DAY" from afterwork exercise.

Finally I get to the office, and now I "know" that today is an going to be an "off day" ... The Interferon has decided it is in-control today. It's okay ... I can work with this, it's old news...

AND THEN I START SPILLING EVERYTHING!!!!!

Water .... Spilled on my desk...

Diet Pepsi (I know ...not as good as water) .... Spilled on my desk calander...

Reach into drawer to get spoon ... cut myself on the Xacto Knife that I KNEW WAS THERE ...

Add to all of this that since Monday, my hands have felt swollen, clumsy and typing is a chore and you have the making of some "neuropathy" .. all certainly to be attributed to Interferon Alpha 2B ....

To quote my good friends at South Park: "BASTARDS!"

I just keep reminding myself .... Only 3 weeks left ... Anybody got any extra sippy cups laying around that they can let me borrow for a few weeks? Nancy, do Elizabeth and Catherine have any extra cups left for me? Hmm... I guess I should go with Water Bottles.... Jim and I have plenty of those laying around.

Live STRONG but don't give it to me because today I will probably drop it!

There's a Dora the Explorer sippy cup at my house from when my nephew was a wee lad. Don't know if that will help. Water bottles seem more practicle.

Sounds like a tough day. Hang in there!

Oy, Deep Breath. I've had those days too. Actually spilled the water too close to my computer one day. SCREAMED for my coworkers to help. They were very nice, thank goodness. As I was holding my dripping computer above the desk, they mopped up the mess.

Life. You gotta laugh sometimes... otherwise you'd cry. :) Enjoy the recovery... Take a nice hot bath and pamper yourself....

Sorry, we NEED all of our sippy cups! I have plenty of extra baby bottles, though, any interest in those? I'm trying to get rid of them!!

THREE MORE WEEKS!!!
