Stupid Cold

Why is it that when I'm sick I notice even more of the stuff I should be doing? I've been stuffy and headachy now for the past few days but never can seem to sit still for too long. I hate being sick mostly because I feel so useless to do anything. I then end up overdoing it trying to compensate for the fact that I'm sick and shouldn't be doing anything. Stupid cold. Thanks Helen.
Yesterday I even went so far as to fill in all the holes in our yard from the water leak. After that was said and done I measured the fence so I can tear it down this weekend. I then proceeded to tear down the small fence by the kid's play house in the back. All the while groggy and light-headed on Tylenol Cough and Sore Throat. I had accidentally taken the night time medicine and didn't realize it until I was going to bed and I read the label before doping up. Turns out I had been taking the wrong medicine all day. I climbed up a twenty foot latter earlier, not once, not twice, but three times with medicine head. The first time I figured I was just hunger causing me to be a little light-headed. The second time I chickened out two steps from the top when I almost missed a step. The third time I just did it fast. I think next time I'll just sit on my ass and watch TV with the dogs.

Speaking of dogs, Stitch is making me crazy. He's not quite house trained and he seems to think every room in the house is his. So he marks it accordingly. Then Sally and Bree have to mark over him since he is the omega in the pack. So what do I get? Lots of messes to clean up while Lana is out at the barn and I'm home sick. He's getting there as far as house breaking and learning the basic commands but it's making me crazy. My carpet steamer has had a workout the past few days. In the end I'm sure we'll have a well behaved dog but getting there is always a pain.

Since I'm not playing the second game of poker tonight I guess I'll order a movie on Directv. Oh wait, I can't since I've gone over my limit. Assholes. Turns out me ordering the De La Hoya fight put me over my limit so I have to wait for the next auto connect billing to clear my receiver before I can order more movies in my living room. Why I have a limit is beyond me. I don't mind paying. I ordered it after all. When I told them I'd be switching over to cable the tech help guy said, "Thank you for using Directv. Is there anything else I can help you with?"

I'll be going back to Time Warner in the next few days. Besides, they have better HDTV DVRs. Okay, I'm done venting. Gonna dope up on some more medicine so I can breath through my nose again. I should max out every receiver in the house on porn and disconnect them from the telephone lines before I cancel. Okay, now I'm done for real.
