I’ve been sick most of the week, spending lots of time resting at home. I had a fancy idea for a blog post today, but just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I’ve literally been in bed with my Kindle and the appropriate food items for almost 2 days.
I did drag my corpse out of bed (okay, it wasn’t that dramatic, I don’t have the flu or anything, but it just sounds more fun put that way) and went into the office yesterday for a few hours – because, OF COURSE, I’d get sick right in the middle of an important project.
Full disclosure here: I’m a HUGE believer in staying home and resting when one is sick because don’t you just HATE when people come into work sick hacking everywhere? You spend most of the day freaking out, washing your hands like crazy, avoiding interaction as much as possible, and downing Emergen-C like it’s water praying you don’t catch whatever they’ve got. There’s nothing worse. However, since I wasn’t hacking everywhere, felt much better than I did on Monday, and could work quietly on what I needed to do away from everyone for a few hours, I broke my rule.
Hopefully, I’ll be at 90% by the time you read this, back into the swing of things. I’ve had plenty of time to think over the last few days, about life, the people in it, my growing to-do list, and how much I’ve enjoyed being somewhat lazy (which is not easy for me to do).
I’m not at all prepared to get into anything deep today. In fact, I want to give a shout out to the superficial little things that got me through my short, unexpected, bed-ridden, staycation:
1. My Kindle. I never get an entire day to myself to just sit and read from the time I wake up, until I go to bed in between nose blows. (I finished a 600 page book! Not bad.)
2. The large bag of M&M’s I bought for my boyfriend, but
accidentally managed to eat most of said bag by myself. (I’m not proud of this – well…)
3. God bless the Target that’s 0.5 miles from my house for that one time I did need to brave the outdoors for medical supplies (okay, again not that dramatic, I went and got some cough drops for my sore throat…and that bag of aforementioned M&Ms).
4. The comfy-iest bed ever.
5. I ordered take out for myself last night and happily devoured it over old episodes of Ally McBeal on Netflix (because hey – I was waaay to weak to cook or microwave anything). :)
Stay healthy, guys! I think something is going around…
