Home Sick Today
So I fought the cold, and the cold won. It is now bronchitis, settled into my lungs. I am coughing up all kinds of nastiness, and I have no voice to speak of. Add in fibro's friend costochondritis, and I am a sad and miserable zombiekitten.
I did everything I could to rest this weekend. I did not leave the house. I slept about 12 hours a day. I stayed hydrated. All I can say is phooey. I just called off work. This means that I will not get paid for today, and we really need the money. But I interact with students (clients/customers where I work) and I can't talk so I had to stay home. There will be a period of time where the office will have no coverage because I am not there, but I still know I had to take today. Why am I afraid of negative consequences? I don't know, but I am.
I'm going to banish any thoughts of guilt--I'm doing my best, and I don't think it would reflect well on the office if I tried to work today. I'm going to rest--drink lots of fluid, take naps, take cough medicine, and the world will keep turning. And tomorrow will come with its own challenges.
For some reason, I really miss Mom today. She's been gone a long time, but I want a mom. I want someone to take care of me for a bit, and give me a mom hug.
Good morning!Well, I took a walk yesterday. After being told by new neighbors that I, as a female, cannot possiblyhelp them move in (?! I can't carry a lamp?!) ... I was waylaid on my 1/3-mile walk by two dogs and two cats. Because. Y'know. It's me. So the shor twalk became a long hour. Not my fault poor animals wanted so much loving. And, y'know. One of the cats wouldn't let me leave. Kept going...
Good morning!Well, we have four cat beds on the porch and three had dents this morning. Temp at 5 AM? -1*C, about 30*F. Shadow and Buster are confirmed, but number three is... ? Not there when I put out food. I swar I end up knowing cats by their butt-dents on the porch! (Or their wet pawprints. LilMiss's are uniquely tippy-toe-tiny, as if she never lets her whole forepaw touch the ground. Yes,...
During my stress yesterday I posted very sensitive stuff on here without warning others. I've deleted it in an attempt to make it right but I'm really sorry for anyone I upset and will be more thoughtful next time.
What are you doing to keep busy this weekend? I'll be shopping for Christmas today with my Dad. Tomorrow I will go to church and see a baby and a couple kids be baptized. I always thought those were private. Lol. I plan to work on crafts this weekend too and I hope to go to Booster Juice today for a Brazillian Smoothie! I love that kind :) Happy weekend heart-felt friends :)
