Chitown Down...Code 10...

I am home sick from work. Surprisingly, I am getting a lot of work done. Makes me want to shake my head but I tend to get a lot of work done when I'm at home. Go figure. I am also making a dent in my laundry. Yeah!!! This cold has me pretty down and out. I knew it was bad when I came into the office yesterday and my coworker asked if I got any sleep the night before. I ran to put on some eyeliner and mascara.

I will also be thrilled when this writing course is over next week. It was beautiful outside after work yesterday and here I was trudging to class. I gave up 4 years of my life in law school so I am done with class after work. Those days are over!!! Lake Michigan and the Beach were calling my name yesterday…Chitown, Chitown, Chitown. LOL

I am still on the fence about the help from my parents. I will probably give it all back to them by Sunday along with a long Thank You letter. I figure that if I need to replenish my $2,000 Efund then I can do it with the stock in my ShareBuilder and ESPP accounts. I am actually amazed that it remained intact through almost 6 months of 2010.

My blog is about getting this debt monkey off my back and part of that is learning to live within my means but still find a way to well…LIVE!!! It’s tough to say the least. It would be awesome to have someone to share expenses with but it would be even more awesome if it was someone I knew.

I hope you feel better soon! I'm like you though, I always do housework when I'm sick because I feel guilty.

You're so productive when you're sick! I just stay in bed and feel bad for myself!
