Home Sick, What a Waste of a Weekend!

I was home all weekend trying to fight off whatever it is that’s making me sick. I have a cough, stuffy nose, body aches, and I just have no energy. Despite that, I did manage to make breakfast both days, make chicken noodle soup, do laundry, and I just picked up my crap from the TotSwap. I made $94. Not as much as I would have liked, but this sale generally isn’t as big and I didn’t end up bringing too many items anyway… So I can’t complain.

I started watching “Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce” again. I watched the first 3 seasons when I was sick with the flu at the beginning of the year. I missed a week of work and did nothing but watch TV for 7 days straight. I found that show and really liked it, kind of reminds me of “Sex & The City” so I was hooked. I forgot about it but last night I started wondering if they’d ever done another season. I found season 4 on demand but I had to pay $1.99 an episode to watch!! I hate that nonsense… but I paid it, so they must be onto something. I watched 3 last night and there are 3 more left. Have you seen it? I think the first 2 seasons are on Netflix, that’s where I originally found it. In the new season the main character launches a website called “Lady Parts” and it made me feel motivated to update again… even though I really have nothing to say tonight. My head is so stuffed up and achy that I can’t formulate much.

Have I mentioned lately that I HATE COLD? It’s definitely cold now, snowed a little yesterday, and I think it was like 37 degrees out today. I HATE IT. We are going to Florida for Christmas and I can’t wait to get away from this yucky cold. HATE IT.

After I wrote about bullying the other day I received a message from a woman in Florida who used to listen to me on the radio a long time ago. She told me that she was in the process of taking her daughter to a psychiatric facility because she’s been bullied so badly she started cutting herself. She gave me an update today and said that after 4 days of treatment they are recommending she go to another place for further care. She said she used to be a great student, a very sweet, friendly girl… and she became the target of bullies at school and the constant harassment has ruined her life at this point. The school suggested she transfer, they have done absolutely nothing about the kids tormenting her day in and day out. I just can’t believe this is how we are dealing with these issues. You know now that she’s away from school they will just focus on another target. It’s so sad. I don’t know what can be done but again, there has to be something more!

Kyla’s school is having a social media/internet safety discussion on Tuesday night. They will talk about how kids use social media and the internet and what to do if you’re bullied online, stuff like that. They will also have some police officers there to talk about online safety and crime prevention, so I think it will be a good meeting. Hopefully I am feeling better so I can go.

I think that’s all for now… Time to change over the laundry again and then I’m going to bed. Thanks for reading!
