Bleh. Caught a cold. And it's moved into my chest.
I feel HORRIBLE.
2 and a half days of missed work - it's sacrilege. And there was even an overnight work trip to Chicago I had to miss (sorry Amy).
Here's what I have learned in my delirium:
1) Life at work will go on without me (although it may be painful for those still at work, picking up my slack).
2) Slurping NyQuil and DayQuil to make symptoms go away does not actually mean you are getting better.
3) Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup are NOT overrated, AND can be made points-friendly.
4) Tazo Green Tea is not real green tea. Do not be tricked. (My quest for real Japanese green tea continues.)
5) Spouses still love each other when they're sick, but much slack must be given to the non-sick one...they are, after all, trying NOT to catch whatever you have.
