I asked my boss to look the syndrome up with his doctor software (he's a scientist). He found that the symptoms get proggesively worse for two weeks, platuea for two weeks, and then get better for 2-4 weeks. After that, it can take up to a year for a complete recovery. I'd say he's a bit over halfway of those first two weeks. But everyone is hopeful and optimistic, so that's really good.
Now...onto the fun! Top Three Thursday from The (un)Experienced Mom and Confessions of a Working Mom want to know what my top three quirks are...
Only three? well ok .. but remember you asked!
3. I am chewing all the time. I can go through a pack of gum in a day. Yes, an entire pack. I think I'm on peice four or five this morning. And if I don't have any gum, then I chew coffee stirrers. The coffee is so crappy here, I load it up with cream and sugar, carry the coffee with the stirrer in it back to lab. Drink the coffee and chew on the stirrer. I even walk around the medical center chewing on coffee stirrers. I also chew ice. And bite my finger nails...but I don't chew them. Promise!
2. I don't check my voicemail, and I don't like to answer the phone if I don't know the number. It drives my husband insane! One day he borrowed my cell phone and missed a call from someone. He went to check the message they left, only to discover he had to go through 25 new messages to get to the one he needed. Yeah, whatever...if I know the person whose call I missed, I just call them back. Saves time, right?
1. I act like I'm 2. When I'm not stressed out, I act like a 2-year old. I skip up and down the aisle at the grocery store. I wake my husband up by going into his room and singing "Rise and Shine and Give God the Glory, glory" while bounching on the bed until he wants to punch me. I make faces in resturants with children at nearby tables. I make stupid corny jokes and laugh really loud at them...even if I'm the only one laughing. I poke my husband when he is ignoring me until he pays attention to me. Hmmm...I'm sure there are others, but this is all I can think of right now, lol. I love being 2! Well...at least I make myself (and my daughter) laugh!!!
