Things not quite going as planned

For one thing, I had hoped to clean up the house and then start looking for a job soon. And I was thinking that even if I didn't find a good job that I should at least try to find a temporary Christmas season type job, and then I could get back to the other stuff after the temp job was over. So then we heard that we were going to Tulsa, and I had planned to go, and then we heard that the schedule changed and we weren't going to go, and then the schedule changed back the way it was and he was still supposed to go to Tulsa. Since I had originally planned to go, I decided that I would still go to Tulsa, and that I would relax for that week and then when I got back I would square things away and start looking for that job. At the beginning of the trip I had a cold and didn't feel well, but after a week of nothing to do other than watch cable TV and enjoy the hot tub and doing a bit of knitting, I felt all rested and thought I was done with this cold.

The day after the trip, I was a bit tired, but I'm almost always tired the day after a trip and I didn't think that it was any big deal. The second day after the trip I felt really good and went to school, but I didn't get much done at school because I usually don't get much done at school after I've been away for a week cause I can't remember what I'm supposed to be doing and such.

So I left school early to run a few errands and I bought some groceries and even bought a turkey. Part of the plan was to start cooking regular stuff and not eat out so much. I copied recipes and everything. I felt great, and I just knew that I was going to cook all this food and then start looking for a job and even finish up with school this week.

Only then I got home and ate dinner and watched some TV, and I started sneezing a bit. Then I was sneezing a lot and coughing a bit, and now I have a bit of a sore throat. So yesterday there was another trip to the grocery store, only instead of buying cool stuff to cook I bought stuff that you buy when you have a cold like fruit juice and soup and tissue paper and such.

So now I don't feel well, and I didn't go back to school and such, and I hadn't gotten much of the cleaning before I started feeling sick again and I'm not up for doing much of it now. While I was sneezing and coughing and such, I knocked over a coke or something, and I didn't notice, and I went back to bed. So now the kitchen floor is covered in this sticky mess, and I will have to scrub the floor and such before I can use the kitchen again.

Maybe I can go to school tomorrow.

I don't yet have a life sucks category in my blog, but today I slipped and fell twice on the ice (enjoying the bruises now), and when someone came to the door today, the doorknob chose that moment to fall apart and not open.

That was before the pipes started to leak and spray hot water. I guess I'm glad that the day only has two hours left in it.
