Sick Day

I usually pride myself with how tough I am in moments of pain or sickness.  I rarely call out of work sick, and the bronchitis I had over Christmas barely pulled a complaint out of my lips.  (I say barely.  I may have grumbled a little bit here and there).  😉

But this bout with the flu?  I’m in misery, and my poor husband is very much aware of it.

Yesterday afternoon, after going for a drive with my sister, I came home exhausted and had a slight headache.  I lay on the floor to play and tease my two kitties.  Nate came downstairs and I had fallen asleep.  It was just about 4pm.

Then the chills hit…  Then the fever…  The severe headache.  The nausea. 

I woke up at midnight and felt so sick, I wanted to cry.  So I crawled out of bed, shuffled over to the bathroom, and took my temperature again.  101.4 degrees.  Ugh!  So I did the practical thing. I crawled back into bed, poked the husband awake, and told him that I was so sick.  Misery loves company, I suppose.

And so, today I called out of work.  I shall be spending the day in bed and enjoying a diet of gingerale and crackers. 

How many of you have a long weekend because of President’s Day?  Doing anything fun?  If you’re working, hope you have a good Monday!  🙂

    I hope you get to feeling better too, the flu is the only thing that could get me to call in for work. Especially if I am sick and throwing up, I just can’t make that work to go in to work. Take it easy and feel better!
