Home from work sick: day 2

Still out sick, and the TV is still boring. I’ve even turned it off. Xbox is offline for maintenance, so no fun there either.

I’ve been fairly producting in the whole e-mail department, though, so that’s good.

The good news is that the chainsaws/wood chippers/weed eater sounds from yesterday are gone. The bad news is that my next door neighbors are pressure washing their roof. Why can’t I get a nice quiet day of rest when I’m out sick?

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.
