sicko

I’m sick this weekend. After 6 weeks of being on business travel and 3 more weeks before then preparing for said business travel with 60+ hour work weeks, my body has finally been allowed to relax for a couple of days (I wouldn’t really call it relaxing, but I only worked 55 hours this past week, so my body takes that as relaxing). And what does my body reward me with by letting it relax? I get a cold. It all started with a sore throat Wednesday night. Thursday morning I woke up feeling like I’d been beaten with sledge hammers all night. Blissfully, Friday was one of my normal 9/80 off-Fridays (well, they’re not so standard when you’ve got a compressed software delivery schedule to finish, but I decided to splurge this week), so I got a day to rest at home. Friday commenced as a day of rest, craft projects that I’ve been wanting to get done before my trip to Huntsvegas, locking Kudzu in a bathroom until she surrendered a urine sample for the vet and drinking lots of hot tea to soothe my still slightly sore throat. Fun times. Today, my cold has become a cough and nose blowing session. I will be better by Tuesday. I don’t care what my body thinks.

  1. Sounds like me when I got a week off—spent the whole thing sick.

    Love ya. Take care of yourself. I’ll give you that hug even if you’re still sick. 🙂

  2. Try Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat tea if you like licorice. It is usually at Krogers in the health food section. Drink lots of fluids, wash your hands, stay warm, REST.
    Have a good flight to Huntsvegas tomorrow.
    Love, Mom M.

  3. Blech to licorice. I’ve been drinking lots of tea, though. Especially peppermint. Lots of fluids, washing my hands, and resting. And, I don’t think I’ve had any problems staying warm, especially here in Phoenix. 🙂
