Staying at home – used to be fun, now is boring

So, this weekend we went to Portland. I picked up some kind of illness at work last week, so I spent the entire weekend in Portland pretty much sleeping in our hotel room. Talk about the suck.

So, today I called into work sick. Had the doc come out (my employer is testing out a doctor-to-your-home program, which is super cool), and he’s diagnosed me with [Tracheitis](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tracheitis). Staying at home when I was in school was fun. Not so much now, it’s a beautiful day outside, and the neighbors are doing lawn work. I’m tired of listening to lawnmowers, weed eaters, chainsaws, and wood chippers (No, I don’t live in [Fargo](http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0116282/)). And daytime TV: what’s with you TV producers? Put some good stuff on daytime TV.
