This Ends With Me on the Couch Eating Waffle Fries

When we got back from the reunion on Monday I started feeling sick. Well it's stuck with me all week. I started feeling better on Thursday but on Friday I was worse. Saturday morning I woke up and wanted to die. Plus I was out of medicine. Because of the storm that hit us last week, John's been pulled back to his old job and is now working 10 hours for 7 days a week, so I was left home alone with no meds. Oh yeah and the cable guy. We were having our cable reinstalled and while I would have loved to stay curled up in my bed I figured that might freak the guy out a bit. Don't think that I didn't want to see if I could bribe him into going to get me some medicine. John thought that might be a bit much to ask of the guy so I camped out on the couch feeling like hell.

After the guy left I finally showered so I could make a run to the store for some meds. I walked my sorry ass into the Walgreens down the street and stood in the medicine ailse for 15 minutes trying to find what I needed. I've had to make two other trips there this week and have run into the same employee each time. Each time I've looked worse than the last and this time the girl just smiled and shook her head at me. Thanks.

I was in search of some Tylenol Sinus and it seemed that my Walgreens didn't even have any Tylenol products aside from the aspirin. I peeked behind the pharmacy counter and of course, no Tylenol back there either. So I sucked it up and drove down the the grocery store where I again wandered the aisle trying to find what I needed. They had Tylenol Sinus but it was the fake stuff. I had been taking the other stuff all week so I KNEW it had to exist. Right when I was about to head to the pharmacist and beg her to please find me my medicine, I pulled out the pill packet that I had brought with me just in case. That's when I saw it, the expiration date of 10/09. Not only was my medicine expired, but Tylenol doesn't even make it anymore. I won't lie, I almost had a break down right there in the medicine aisle. Now two of my go to meds for when I get my stupid allergy/sinus crap are no longer being made.

So what'd I do? I put my big girl panties on, drove to Chik-Fil-A and camped out on the couch eating my waffle fries.

  2. Totally sucky! Hope you get to feeling better...waffle fries make everything better.

  3. Poor thing! I hope you're feeling a lot better.

    Did you also get a piece of cheesecake and just not tell us? Because that would make me feel better.

  4. I did not even know Chik-Fli-A had cheesecake! Hmmm....

  5. I hope you're feeling better! I read this over the weekend and was in pain for you. :(
