Sick of Sven

I'm still sick. I woke up this morning at 7:45 am (early for me as I usually wake up at 8 or 8:30) to let the superintendent in to look at the black mold, the leak, and the broken dishwasher, and then crawled back into bed.

At 10:15 am, I woke up again. My glands were swollen, my head hurt and felt swimmy, I had dark circles under my eyes, and my body felt weak. I decided to stay home for a few hours to try to rest.

But, then I heard something from downstairs. What was that? Was it the ubiquitous "Scrubs" that Sven constantly watches? Was he home? Seriously, I didn't like that show before he started force-feeding me episodes, but now I really can't stand it. It has a completely stupid, moronic sense of humor that I have grown to despise over this summer. I hate it almost as much as I hate Michigan Football, and that's a lot.

I went downstairs on the pretext of making tea (which turned out quite delicious actually - peppermint tea with honey) and confirmed that yes, Sven is at home today. He doesn't have to work until the afternoon. All I wanted this morning was a quiet apartment so that I could rest today. Instead, I have effing "Scrubs."

I know this has more to do with me (I want my own place and I am sick) than it does him, so I am now attempting to control my seething hatred for Sven's very existence.

Poor Buttercup. Swollen glands are bad. That's when I go to the doctor. Feel better soon.

Ugh. Sleep well, and know that he'll be at work soon enough, leaving you alone in your home...in peace. *hugs* for a speedy recovery.

P.S. When does roomie return from the Hamptons?

Get well soon!

Keep drinking that Nyquil and hopefully you'll start feeling better! Both of my work colleagues have been feeling unwell this week also, must be something in the air.

Hope you feel better soon:)

I'm so sorry! I just got over being sick too and I absolutely loved it when I could suffer in peace by myself. Poor thing.

Sparky, Yes, please. Go.

I feel your pain. After living by myself (with kidlet 50% of the time, but she is like mini me) I am fully aware of the fact that I can never ever live with another adult again. Ever.
