Well, I finally caught the crud that’s been going around work. I got up this morning and my nose and throat were both raw — great for a morning when I’m singing at church. But Justin and I went in and got ready for church, I made it through practice and all the way through church, drinking lots of tea and water and orange juice, putting aside the aches and runny nose and general yuckiness until after everything was done. We cleaned up after church and went home and I curled up in bed as soon as we got home. (I would have fallen asleep in the car, the weariness hit me as soon as I sat down, but Justin said he’d leave me there if I fell asleep and I didn’t want to sleep in the car.) I slept until after 6 o’clock. Then I got up, Justin got me dinner, and I watched tv for the rest of the evening.
I feel awful. I’m tired, my nose and throat are raw, I keep sneezing. It’s a little after 10 o’clock now and I’m going back to sleep in the hopes that I’ll feel better when I wake up. I’m staying home from work — already sent an email to my lead and let him know. I fought long and hard to not get this thing, but I guess the long hours last week and the general popularity of the bug (soooo many people have it!) finally ran me down.
I’m going to go to sleep now.
P.S. Thanks so much for the well wishes, Ethan and Audrey and Amy! They made me smile. 🙂 My arm is feeling a lot better today.
