I’m going on three weeks of this terrible sinus infection (with a side of double ear infections). It has just been slow going’s getting better. As soon as I’d start to feel better, someone in my family would start to get sick, too, and I’d get worse all over again. Finally, everyone was back to school and work today and everyone came home feeling better and happier than they had in weeks.
Except me. Naturally.
I still hurt here…
So, I headed back to the doctor for the second time to see about different medications. I waited dutifully for TWO HOURS to be seen at the last minute, finally saw the doc, was told that I still had a sinus infection and two ear infections, got my three new prescriptions, and headed over in a haze of sinus pressure to the drug store to get my prescriptions filled. As I waited in the store for my order, I poked around the Easter candy aisle and picked out a few of Chris’s favorite candy goodies as a thank you for taking care of me these past few weeks. Then, I wandered over to the magazine aisle and read about beautiful people in beautiful clothes who were living happily without sinus pressure and headaches. (Jerks…) By the time my prescriptions were ready, I’d been at the store for about 20 minutes.
So, I get my medicine, check out, and head to my car. Only, as I’m walking out to my car, I couldn’t find my keys anywhere. I dug in my purse and my pockets, but couldn’t find them. As I got closer to the car, I put my bags down on the hood of my car and dug and dug and dug. But, no keys.
“Shoot!” I mumbled as I fumbled.
“Lose something?” asked a nice young guy as he walked by.
“My keys,” I said. “I must have left them inside.”
And he kind of laughed at me. Then he stopped laughing.
“You do know that your car is running, right?” he asked.
Sure enough, I’d apparently pulled into my parking spot, and just headed into the store without even turning my car off. And then I shopped around for 20 MINUTES while my empty, unlocked, running car sat out in the parking lot.
And now, I will go back to bed and hide until work tomorrow morning before I do something even dumber.
