Mono is Giving Me Carpal Tunnel

Because I only feel good when I am lying down, I have been typing in this really weird position. I have been lying down slightly propped up on one arm of the loveseat; my feet up on the other arm; and my computer half on my thighs and half on my stomach. This is making me type with my arms all wonky. I thought it was just the mono when my arms started aching. Last night, I realized it is my horrible posture. So now I have pushed the laptop further forward so it is in fact a laptop and not a bellytop.

But today I am feeling even worse than normal, so I doubt I will be typing much at all. This is a particularly bad mono day where I am too tired to do anything, but not tired enough to sleep. I have been striving not be grumpy. I started failing at that after the 43rd day of being sick. I think it is time to call out the big anti-grumpy guns and throw on a Goldie Hawn movie. The day that fails to cheer me up will be the worst day of my life. And folks, that day is not today.

Goldie Hawn is my hero. If you are wondering why, the simplest explanation I can give is that when she was a little girl and people would ask her what she wanted to be when she grew up, here answer was, "Happy." That isn't the original reason why I started idolizing her, but it explained everything I do like about her. So, I'm just sticking to that.

There is oh so much more for me to say on the Goldie subject. But, I really do feel like crap on toast and it is making me ill just to type so that will have to do for now.


  1. I just gotta ask, does anyone not like Goldie. I mean who doesn't find her smile engaging? It says I don't give a crap about what you think, I know I am great. She's just too adorable!!

    This is of course, mom.

  2. Happy Birthday, Jennifer. I just have to say how proud I am of you. You are my hero.
