Sick & Busy...(NOT a Good Mix!)
I came down with the cold last Friday that's been making the rounds around the office. YUCK! Stuffy head, congested chest, and just general tiredness. It came just in time so that I could enjoy the Memorial holiday in bed. Sleep, sleep, and more sleep...I'm trying to get rid of the darn thing. I went to bed on Friday afternoon after work and stayed mostly in bed until Sunday afternoon. I started feeling a little more human then but only ventured from home to pick up another batch of NyQuil on Sunday night. Otherwise, I was parked on the love seat underneath a blanket and going between watching a movie or reading a book. Monday, I felt a bit like a hermit venturing out. I went with a friend to dinner, a bit of shopping, and then coffee at Barnes & Nobles.
My taste buds are still off... where they went---I don't know. This morning I had to have one of the guys taste the coffee. It didn't taste right to me. He said it was my normal real strong brew as his face pucker up a bit. Food doesn't taste right to me yet, and you would hope that maybe I would be losing weight because I'm not eating. Nope, I'm not doing anything exercise either though. So it's all a wash. I will cough in spurts, usually when I need to talk to someone on the phone (Oooopps, sorry to cough in your ear.) or when I seem to have discovered I left all of the cough drops at home (Good old Murphy's Law at work).
But on top of all of this sickness, I've been pretty busy. We had inventory at work last Friday. Now everything that was on hold due to inventory needs to be done YESTERDAY! Then things have stepped up on the Little Red Riding Hood ride with it approaching this Saturday. The volunteers are pouring in or volunteers that were set up are now unable to make it after all for whatever reasons, and then there's all of the working out the details and getting them to the volunteers. I AM AMAZED that Diane did this all by herself last year and kept her sanity. You are AWESOME Diane!
So anyway that's why I haven't written in here in awhile... I hope you understand. Of course, that's figuring that anyone is actually reading my dribble...? ;-)
