Conversations with myself.

I am still sick. I finally broke down and stayed home from work today. It was a very lonely long day. I am not used to being home when everyone else is at work and school. I suck at not working. It’s really depressing. This is what me, myself and I talked about:

Me: So now that the family has all left, now what are we going to do?

Myself: You should just stay in bed and sleep the whole day.

I: Are you kidding??? Have you seen the state of this house??

Me: Are you really going to keep cleaning, shouldn’t you make the rest of the people who live here figure it out?

Myself: You should really stop and relax. Put your feet up, find a movie to watch.

I: Shouldn’t you take a shower; your hair is really awful!

Me: What can you make to eat that would be edible?

Myself: GREAT – You are such a LOSER, you go to all that trouble, and now it’s all over the floor!!

I: (while scrubbing the floor) now what are you going to eat? I can’t believe you dropped it the minute you made it and it’s not even salvageable, now we will starve!

Me: Now what?? You should really just have gone to work and been miserable there.

Myself: By the time everyone comes home you know you are going to regret not sleeping all day.

I: Why is quiet so loud??

Me: Never call off sick again! This is boring and stupid.

Myself: At least all the laundry is done. I accomplished something.

I: You suck. You can’t even relax right. Way to go loser!

Oh, my gosh...your "myself" voice is ME!! Except I'd never call you a loser. I am skilled at not working. I could tutor you in that. I don't want to brag, but I'm kind of a "not working" savant. Too bad I have a job.

I've been home the past two days with a sick little boy. I haven't worked much here, either, and I guarantee that I'm mighty unpopular with the lady trying to get substitutes around a 3 day weekend. Hope you're feeling better soon!

Relax!! (you can do it...I believe in you)

That is pretty much how I am when I am home sick as well. I always end up cleaning or cooking when I am sick.

i hope you are feeling better this evening.

you probably needed the break even if it was a long, long day.

"Are you really going to keep cleaning, shouldn’t you make the rest of the people who live here figure it out?" That is the best line. I say that to myself all the time. The problem is that when they eventually figure it out- they don't figure it out the right way- MY way. And I end up re-doing whatever it is they were supposed to do.

I hope you are feeling better:-)

The more blogs of yours I read, the more I'm convince we must have been separated at birth! Have a hard time sitting still, even when sick, but unless you want to have another day with Me, Myself and I, you're going to have to get some rest! (my mothering voice).

This internal argument had me laughing. Best line with so much truth: I: Why is quiet so loud??

Hope you are feeling better.
