Day 52: Sicky Sicky

Today I was a sicky sicky! I still don't really know quite what is wrong with me, but I just feel gross.
It feels like my ears won't un-pop, so when I woke up this morning, my head was POUNDING. I was also quite sure that I had a fever. This was probably due to the fact that I had a dream last night, where I woke up this morning and had a temperature of 118.3 degrees Fahrenheit! Apparently my imagination has no sense of what temperature is TOO high, and would mean that I am boiling alive. Oh well. Anyway, I woke up for reals, and did not have a temperature, so I laid there for about an hour, debating on whether I should call in to work.  I ended up calling in and telling them I was sick, because my headache wasn't getting any better, and even if I didn't have a fever, I figured I wouldn't be any fun to be around today. So, I had a gross sick day full of pretty much nothing today. Which I have to admit, was kind of nice.
Yes, I was bored out of my mind, but it was nice to just lay on the couch, and not run after pre-todds all afternoon.
I have no idea how I'm going to feel when I wake up, but my left ear still hurts, and my headache is better, but still lingering. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if I feel better tomorrow, or if I end up feeling even worse! Hopefully better...

But, today I watched, I think, 6 episodes of Army Wives. I'm hooked. But still kind of upset about the series. It seems to me that they like to focus on the negatives, which I guess, makes the show more dramatic and intriguing from week to week, but it just makes me mad. Also, they don't really have a great variety of types of couples on the show. I can tell that they're trying. But two of the wives are married to Colonels, and another is married to a Major, and two are married to lower enlisted guys, but there's no representation of a young officer couple. Maybe I'm a little biased in this area, but while I understand that a new enlisted wife is a very intriguing character (in fact she's my favorite!), I would like to see the couple that thinks they know a lot about the Army, since they dealt with ROTC, and then they get to their unit, and all of the enlisted wives expect the new officer's wife to know everything, and be able to handle everything with poise, but she has no idea what's going on......hmmmm this story is beginning to sound too familiar....

Plus, NONE of the soldiers in the show wear their berets correctly. Being married to an army guy, I have seen the amount of tedious and ridiculous care and preparation goes into making a new beret perfect, and keeping it perfect. But, in this show, all of their berets look like they just pulled them off the shelf, brand new, and slapped it on their head, without shaping it or anything. It's very annoying to me. Hopefully, as the shows progress, so will the costume department in their research of beret-styling.
Sorry. Silly rant, I know, but as I was watching today, I could just hear Kent complaining about their lack of beret knowledge.  I guess he's rubbed off on me.

Anywho, I'm gonna go to sleep and hopefully I'll wake up headache-free.
Much love to all!

  1. 1) Agree completely with the new-on-post ROTC to Active Duty transition, it's quite an adjustment to make!
    2) Those berets DRIVE ME BONKERS!
    You aren't the only one, no worries ;)
