From the couch

I am home today with a cold, and as I put it to my coworker, a side order of a tummy bug. That might have been caused by cold meds on an almost empty stomach, time will tell.

So I am parked on the couch, knitting close at hand but no ambition to do it at the moment.

I am supposed to be phoning in to a meeting, but they forgot to send the code along with the phone number. I asked for it but decided not to push it. If it comes while I am awake, I will listen in. Otherwise, no.

Tomorrow we will wait and see how I feel. It is very tempting to just take the day and make a huge long weekend, but I would feel guilty if I am not as sick as I was this morning. Which was pretty sick. Now I just feel tired and blah.

Be glad you are there and not here.

  1. Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. I don’t know what the weather is like in Maine, but we’re starting to get beautiful weather here. Perhaps you can convalesce on the deck?

    1. The weather is truly lovely here! Tomorrow is supposed to be quite warm, if I don’t go to work, I might sit out on the screened porch for a bit. Too buggy to sit out in the sunshine, unless there is a nice breeze. That should fix me right up!

    1. Good point! I will wear a mask if I go to work, being the change I want to see in the workplace, lol! But I will have to feel a whole lot better before I go there.

  2. Side of tummy bug is such an apt description. It’s like “Is THIS really necessary?” Anyhow, I hope you feel better quickly and it doesn’t ruin a perfectly lovely long weekend.

    1. Thanks, Shells! I hope so too. I definitely was of the “are you SERIOUS?” frame of mind this morning as I was staggering about trying to get ready for work, and it was made clear to me that was stupid. I really hope it was caused by vitamins and meds. I have been very careful about how I take them since then.

  3. I hope you get better fast – it would really stink to be sick over a long weekend! You might be smart to take tomorrow off even if you’re a bit better, just to be sure you don’t pass anything along to your coworkers, and to be sure you get good and well. UGH. Take care of yourself.

    1. Thanks, Kendra! I am staying home again today, tummy feels better but the cold is still killing me. But I made it back to the couch!!!

      1. Glad to hear it. Take care – take aspirin, drink plenty of fluids, and knit and/or spin till you drop.

  4. So, it’s “tomorrow” now–are you better and going to work? It would be nice to be a lot better . . . but nice to stay home, too.

  5. Hope you feel better soon. Nothing worse than having something when the weather turns warm. It just saps all your strength. Maybe double up on the Vitamin C? I usually do that along with a cup of echinacia to help boost the immune system. Allow yourself to rest. Take a long weekend.

    1. Thanks! Ido take lots of vit C and zinc when I am sick. Plus some elderberry concoction my SIL makes. As for resting, that is all I am doing. Managed a shower and half dressed ( lounging clothes, but not pajamas!) and stripped the bed today. Hope I have the energy to make it again!

      1. There is a great elderberry concoction sold in health food stores or organic markets called sambucol. It really works. After the drs. had crashed my immuned system when treating my cancer I took the sambucol everyday for about a year and it brought my immune system right back up to strength. Whenever I feel run down or like I’m coming down with something I take two teaspoons.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
