We are at day 257 and I am breaking the rules
There will be no picture tonight
I am sick...again
I feel so lame...like every other post is "I'm sick"
And let me clear the air by saying, no I am not pregnant, and no I am not dying (although it feels like it)
We are in the fourth month of the year...and all it's been so far is sick day after sick day
I never get sick! What is this!?!?!? I am actually pretty mad about it
I get 3 sick days a year - 3!
And I used all three of them the first 3 days of the year
I get 10 vacation days...and I have used 3 of those being sick
And apparently in this case, 3 is not a magic number because here I am again
Anyway, Steve and I have a tradition of assigning a family slogan for the year
The first slogan was the year we got engaged and felt like we were on top of the world...
Year one slogan: "In your face world!!!"
My sister even made us honeymoon shirts with that saying on it
The second year is the year we bought our house...
Year two slogan: "We're winning"
It was half sarcastic, half a battle cry for making it through a very tough and stressful process
Year three (last year)...
Well that is the year the economy tanked so bad we didn't know if we'd make it through
I had a 20% pay deduction all year...with a 3 month period of a 50% pay deduction
With the new house paying bills was not easy...and I kept waiting to be laid off
Just a warning...this slogan is rated "R"...it is actually a quote from the movie Super Bad
Year three slogan is: "F*ck me right"
And that's just how the year felt
But we made it through...and my employer is slowly trying to pay us back for some of the lost money
And although 20% is still held from my paycheck...they try to get it back to us every quarter
are were starting to pick up
We were waiting to coin a slogan for this year until we got further in it...
And secretly I had been toying with "It's happening" to signify that things were looking up
(And they kind of are so don't freak out mom and think I'm severely depressed...just venting I swear)
Anyway...after this 3 rounds of being so sick I can't move, I am tabling that slogan for now
So here's hoping now that I vented I will get better, feel fine tomorrow and we can get back on track for making this year the year we say, "It's happening!!!"
