Today I am home sick.  No, not "homesick," but I am at home feeling ill.  I had a fever come on really quickly last night and I rapidly progressed to feeling horrible.  Sore and swollen throat, cough, aches, fever, nausea, all the good stuff.  I went to bed at 9:30.  This morning, after Evan left to bring the kids to the babysitter, I went back to bed until 10:00 am.  I never do that. 

Today I am taking our car in to get the brakes fixed.  It's making a nasty metal on metal grinding sound.  Thank goodness for our "Car Repairs/Maitenance" budget envelope or I would be hyperventilating right now.

Today my darling neighbor offered to pick me up from said repair shop so I'm not stuck there hacking and feeling crappy in a waiting room the whole day.  Isn't she awesome?

Today I am using a rolled up Mary Kay brochure to swat flies.

Today I have a pork roast in the crock pot with brown sugar, salsa, and Pepsi.  It was a recipe I found on one of my couponing blogs and I decided to try it.  Only the recipe called for Coke, but I didn't have any.  I used Pepsi.  This might be my biggest mistake next to actually attempting this recipe.  Only time will tell on this one.

And because every good blog post needs a photo:

What are you up to today?
