Bits of Randomness

First of all, welcome to any ICLW readers, I hope you like what you read & decide to come back for more sometime down the road. And of course, welcome back & thanks to all of you who follow along with me on my adventures regularly too!
I have several bits of different types of blog posts floating around in my head & have decided to let the randomness of it all spill out for a post.

*On Thursday, I came home 1/2 way through the school day because I was not feeling well...I also called in on Friday morning. I have to admit that I did kind of think of myself as a pansy for not going to work-I probably could have handled it...
I made an appointment with the doctor(me being paranoid, probably I thought; pansy, most definitely-I mean I had barely been sick 2 days & never mind the fact that I was completely exhausted just by the simple act of taking a shower & that I could barely stay awake while in the waiting room!) I told the doctor all of my symptoms & that I thought maybe I had a slight temperature-the results...104 degree fever & Strep throat! (I guess I wasn't being a pansy after all!)

*March Madness also began on Thursday & normally I look forward to it a lot, obviously, given the circumstances on that day this year- it was the last thing on my mind. Now that I am starting to feel a little bit better, I have started paying attention & I remembered one of my biggest pet peeves with TV sports. Honestly, it is really no big deal in the grand scheme of things, but I really dislike that they always name their "Players of the Game" before the game is over. I'm sure I say it just about every single time I see it (yes, poor Scott), but really what if a player does something spectacular in the last 2 mins or 30 secs of the game that changes everything. Would they ever go back & say "Oh, yeah, wait a minute we changed our minds..."

*It is an odd feeling to be so excited about your stomach growling for the first time in 2 days, yet not being sure what would be a "safe" food to eat.

*I am loving this fabulous Spring weather we have been having here in the Midwest, especially when I saw it snowing on the first day of Spring in New York on "The Early Show" yesterday morning.

That's all for now, but hopefully as my endurance gets built back up this week I'll be able to get a few more posts out there & get some "visiting" done too! Happy ICLW!

Ugh! Strep throat, that sucks. Good thing you caught it early. Hope you're feeling better!
