Sick Sucks

Here we are at the end of a work week and I feel like crap. Sore throat, feverish, just plain icky. Worse than being sick for the weekend is the fact that I fly out on Monday for a business trip. I hate being sick away from home! I will be expected to show up for work (with or without my germs) there will be no lounging around in my sweats feeling sorry for myself, nope I will go and teach these people how to use the software. I will be patient with them. I will not talk to them like they are morons. I will spend evenings in the hotel feeling VERY sorry for myself 'cause I am not at home.
Then the kicker, I can't access this website from my work laptop, so no daily checkins (although I guess I could haul my sorry ass down to the business centre, and lounge about there feeling sorry for me. hmm something to consider)
Yup being sick sucks.

Yes, being sick does suck. When did what we do become more important then who we are? When did we lose the the ability to say; "Hey! I'm not really feeling up to the challange of the world today so I'm taking a time out for me." In our effort to become that super employee we have lost the things that should mean the most to us. Our health, our sanity, and our sense of fun.
Sorry your feeling ill Sexueen, but do visit that business center to check your mail, browse the profiles, and read the blogs. Everyone needs that time.
Feel better!

Aww thanks Evil,
I had about 12 hours of sleep (well almost 12 hours, there was bathroom wake-ups for me and the hound) and I am feeling a bit better today!
Recently I have decided that my health is more important than my job. (missed almost a full week with my last 'cold') And truly I guess if I was still real sick on Tuesday I wouldn't go in! This has been scheduled for a long time though and would really throw a wrench in the system if I cancelled!
but like you said (sorta) it is about ME!

Hope you are feeling better Lynn

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo
