At the risk of trying my readers’ patience, I took another blogger’s sick day yesterday. In my defense, I can’t so easily take a day or partial day off work so stuck it out for the full eight hours. Something had to give. It was the blog. And the episodes of Dateline on OWN I went to bed rather than watch (and I LOVE Dateline!). So now I am up at 4 a.m. (OK, I am usually up by 4, 4:30 at the latest), typing away.
And feeling rather ill-used about the sore throat (new symptom) and continued headache. I would not be surprised if I picked up some virus in addition to my sinus infection and will feel terrible for the foreseeable future. Or maybe it was a virus to begin with and I am building up my system’s tolerance for antibiotics to no purpose.
While at work, I alternated between thinking I would go home and straight to bed, and telling myself, “No! Don’t give in to it! Go running! Write your post cards and walk to the post office!” Oh, how terrible do I feel about not writing my weekly post cards yet? Quite terrible. Anyways, it will come as no surprise that I did, in fact, give in to it.
I don’t now how much longer this illness will last, but it is making my blog damn boring, as well as making it difficult for me to accomplish any other writing. Hands up, everybody who, when you are sick, want nothing better than to lounge around on bed or couch and wish you didn’t feel so rotten. Oh, I suppose you probably don’t (you know who you are).
However, I see I am over 250 words. Time to get ready to face the day. My goal for today is not to spend any time resting my head in my hands and not to complain to any of my co-workers. It’s good to set goals.
