Boy you really don't have much to blog about when you spend your days watching "Seinfeld", "The Office", and the Olympics. I'd love to say I'm using this time to write cards to friends, or to read the classics, but I basically have no energy or desire to invest in such pursuits! Instead I sit on the couch and laugh, because really, those two shows are just so hilarious. (As for the Olympics, come on now, what is going on with some of the gymnastics scoring? And the ages of some of those athletes?! Oh and I think I have a crush on old man Bella Carolyi. Is he not just the sweetest guy? Kevin and I both think his wife totally looks like she could be named "Madge" and play in a bowling league. I TOLD you, I don't have much to blog about!)
Being the anal "must-get-to-the-bottom-of-this" person that I am, I HAD to research my teenage illness. I found some interesting things, like mono is not just passed through saliva, but also through coughing and sneezing. Most people by adulthood carry the virus, it occasionally reactivates in the body (showing no symptoms), and so the going thought is that it is the HEALTHY adult population spreading the virus. Also, the reason mono is less common among adults is that by the time you reach adulthood, you should have been exposed to it, and now carry immunity. Darn. (Kids get it often but it goes undetected since their symptoms are often very mild.)
So thanks to the healthy adult out there who decided I should finally be exposed. I REALLY appreciate it. And to everyone I knew growing up, for never exposing me to the virus and helping me build immunity.
Our carpet is being installed tomorrow and Thursday. I can't do any heavy lifting because my spleen might be enlarged, so the carpet man is graciously coming tonight to help Kevin move furniture so he can tear out the carpet himself. How fun, hanging out with the carpet installers for two days. Don't worry, I won't let them drink out of my glass or share my pudding!
Speaking of pudding, I'm off to make some. And then go watch Seinfeld. And maybe some Days of Our Lives. Have a great day!
