Dazed and confused [Aug. 7th, 2009|04:26 pm]

[Current Mood |embarrassedembarrassed]

By 3pm today I had to resign myself to the fact that there was no way I could make it to ritual tonight. So I started making phone calls to let people know I wouldn't be there and to find someone to sub for casting circle. I left some messages, got a call back confirming my sub, and was feeling quite relieved.

Then I got a call from my neighbor, Linda. "I am sorry you're so sick," she said, "but you do realize that it's only Friday and ritual is tomorrow, right?"

...

Oh.

Somehow, in the midst of misery I lost track of days and was certain today was Saturday. Which is, of course, much better than spending all of a Sunday thinking it's only Saturday. But still.

Maybe by tomorrow I will be well enough to make it to ritual, after all.

Wow, babe, I think you must learn to be more boring so the Sickly Sprite will get sick of hanging around you!

Feel better!

Even if you're not sick, I've found that sometimes it's easy to get all discombobulated and start thinking it's earlier or later in the week.

Earlier is always optimal - unless it means you miss appointments. Then, not so much.

You are now the third person I know that has lost a day this week. I am beginning to wonder about the whole Mayan Calendar doom theory.

:) At least it lends credence to your tale of illness! I mean, if you're too dazed to know what day it is, that's sure to engender more sympathy than a fake-sounding story.
Hope you feel better soon!

Yeah, dazed, confused, sore, and miserable. Last night I couldn't even stay up to watch TV - had to be flat in bed.

I wish I could bring you soup! And entertaining stories!

Once again, I hope you feel better soon...

lol. once i went napping on the couch after work, woke up and realized that not only had my SO not come home at all, but that i was two hours late for my job as well. i called and left a frantic message for my co-worker saying that i'd be there as soon as i could, after calling all the hospitals looking for ryan.

...it was in fact 9. nine p.m. it only took me about a half hour to figure out that the waning light was coming from the wrong direction. and as for ryan? he'd gone CD shopping after he got off work and hadn't thought it was worth his time to call me and let me know he'd be late.

i left another, embarrassed message for my co-worker, asking her to please ignore everything. *sigh*

Hmm, I lost a day this week, but it was Monday, a civic holiday here in Ontario. :)
I hope you are feeling better.

Happy Canada Day!

Not much, really. Not worse, though, so that's something.

It's kicking my ass, that's for certain. Fun: I have had it; this is not it. But, misery loving company and all, Ferrett appears to be coming down with it!

I thought yesterday was Saturday for most of the day, too! I was pleasantly surprised to learn I had one more day than I thought to take my pharmacology exam. LOL

Extra Saturdays are a blessing, decidedly.
