Bleh. Today is a sick-day. In my house, though, unless you’re totally unable to function, that means working in bed with a bunch of covers, water, and the laptop. I actually “enjoy” sick-days if only for the novelty of getting to lounge around in pajamas with fluffy pillows all day. Work is work, though, and I’ve got LOTS of it to get to today. Not gonna let these HORRIBLE allergies get the best of ME! *cue maniacal laughter*
Ahem…anyway…back to business. Welcome to Wednesday Wanderment: Sick-Day Edition. There’s not really anything special about this edition, but I just thought it was a fun name. I digress. Here are your lovely links!

Random Facts About My Life on Sick-Days
>> I usually don’t want to eat anything when I’m feeling sick–even if my stomach is gurgling and making all those “please-feed-me-I’m-hungry-noises”…It’s just hard to think about food when your mouth has that “sick taste”, ya know?
>> I get a general sort of lethargy when I’m sick and it takes me a lot longer to get normal work done. For example, this blog post normally would have been finished and posted by 9 AM on a non-sick-day. It’s about 9:20 at the time of writing this sentence…
>> One of my favorite past-times while being sick is laying in the bed and doing NOTHING. I’ll settle for laying in bed and getting work done on my dream job, though. That’s a pretty great compromise. 😉
Happy Wednesday, all!
