I wish you sick

All last week I had to work and if anyone knows, working while you have a visitor..a visitor you haven’t seen in 5 months isn’t all that fun. I made sure to keep work out of the know with G-man being in town, even though I got asked daily where my car was, I was able to skirt the question each and every time, citing my generosity to others who were in need of it. you didn’t know I was so humble, did you?

So as the days went on I sort of kind of schemed a bit. …just a little bit.

By Wednesday, I had this crazy secret idea to maybe call into work Thursday to spend an entire day with him. This was going to prove a bit difficult since I’m the only one that does my job and they always comment on how hard it would be for them if I wasn’t there. We had gone out to eat with friends and their 1 1/2 year old (who was sick) and as we were walking out to our cars, she called out, ‘this sounds mean, but I hope you get sick!’ My first thought was, that that wasn’t very nice of her to say, but then the mice started running and I figured out what she meant…and laughed back.

But as the night progressed I was starting to have second thoughts and feel guilty about it all. especially when another girl had just been fired days before for always calling in… It’s one thing to call into prison whenever I wanted. I had 100+ co workers to fill in for me, but here there’s no one!

I was still on the fence about it all when I went to sleep but then 3am hit. I was rudely awoken to being sick. Honest to goodness sick. Went to bed feeling great, woke up barely able to breathe! - Let’s pause and thank God for that one! - You can bet I picked up that phone at 7am to call my boss saying I wasn’t coming in. It got worse throughout the day but we still went out shopping…even though I wanted to lay on the floor at Best Buy, I was so weary.

All throughout the day I couldn’t believe I actually got sick but knew no matter what I had to go into work the next day. How bad would that be calling in 2 days in a row!? As my co workers began arriving they were stressing to me to go home. (its always good when they see that I was telling the truth, you know?) Finally the boss showed up and (though reluctant) let me go “home” at 1.

Only, I didn’t go home. >>evil laugh<< I drove to San Francisco to meet up with my love who was already there to enjoy our last weekend together, and if you follow me on IG, you’d know I showed the first ‘face’ picture of him. Cause I’m generous like that.

It may be odd, but I’m thankful God gave me sickness to spend a few extra hours with G-man. It was needed and appreciated. Pin It Now!

Suuuure you really came down with something. Mmmhmm I bet. ;)

Can't wait to get a real picture of G one day, he can't avoid it forever!

I'm so glad you were able to spend some time with him.
I think I would have been 'sick' that whole week.

It was meant to be! I remember one time when John and I were still long distance and I took him to the airport to go home. A storm came and delayed his flight for a few hours so I picked him back up to spend a few more hours together. By the time we got home his flight was back on we intentionally missed it and he got to stay a whole extra night. Those moments were the greatest. :) Glad you got extra G-man time, and sorry you were sick!

Happy accidents! and hmmmmmmm, I'm going to have to go back through my feed because I think I missed this "face" picture of G-man.

Jess said...

Wahoo! and you're a stinker. I knew you didn't normally show it, I remember reading a comment you made on Jhen's blog about him not wanting to be on the internet (which is funny since that's how you met) anyway, thought I'd missed history in the making or something. And thanks for the email help. So happy it worked.
