Sick day

Woke up feeling rather worse this morning, the cold has moved southward, so to speak, and I have been hacking up gobs of phlegm. Sorry for the disgusting image. Anyway, as a result I stayed in bed for the most part with the AC on. Slept a lot, and read some, and got up to eat and check things on-line.

The FWiB called and we had a nice long talk. Then, just when I was getting ready to call Oldest Brother, [personal profile] mashfanficchick called and asked if I'd like to go to dinner. So I was feeling better after my day in bed so I said yes. She has a cold too, we sounded like a plague ward together, hacking and coughing. But we had a good time eating at Uno with her mother as well.

Now home and getting ready for bed. Strongly thinking of staying home tomorrow, because a quick trip out to eat is not equivalent to a whole day working. But I won't decide til tomorrow.

Gratitude List:

1. Cold medicine,

2. Good food.

3. Friends.

4. The FWiB.

5. Air conditioning.

6. Bed soon.

Second sick day

So I made the decision to call out sick today. And tried to call in to notify work of that decision. And the phone just rang and rang. I started calling at 9 and by 10:30 texted the boss and told him, and then just e-mailed it in. Turned out the phones at work were out of order, and I was the one that notified them of that.

Spent the rest of the day sleeping and reading. Still working on The Magicians by Lev Grossman. Not sure if I'll go on to the other two in the trilogy or not.

The FWiB called, and we talked for a good long time.

And that's pretty much my day. Back to work tomorrow.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Sick time.

3. Air conditioning.

4. Good books.

5. Ice cream.

6. Cheese.
