Gotta Love Karma

I took Thursday and Friday off of work because I was "sick." I spent those fabulous days lounging around the house with Hot Husband who actually was sick. We watched movies, snuggled, did some naughty stuff and really just enjoyed being together. On Sunday I got sick. I absolutely believe this is karma for calling in sick and lying to my boss two days in a row. And since I took Thursday and Friday off of work, I really didn't think I should miss another day so I went in today. Sick as a dog. I fell asleep on my desk twice. Thank Goddess my boss was in a good mood and didn't get mad at me. Instead he was super sweet and let me sleep! After I woke up the second time he then decided to talk to me about my health. He is worried about me. I have been sick so many times this year that he thinks something is really wrong. He suggested blood tests.

I didn't know what to do. It was nice that he was so worried about me, but I felt horrible because his worrying is based on lies! I've been trying to justify my actions by reminding myself that this very boss who is so worried about me is actually the exact same boss who makes me feel like I'm nothing 85% of the time. I try telling myself that he doesn't really care, he is just thinking about his bottom line. I try telling myself that my boss is only being nice so he doesn't have to apologize for being a dick head. Nothing works. Right now I feel guilty, but I can't really be that guilty because I am actually thinking of telling my boss I am having blood work done on Friday afternoon so I can leave early for my trip to Michigan!

I will never learn.

Sometimes a "personal health day" is just what the doctor ordered.

Be careful though.. with the economy like it is - you are playing with fire.
