NaBloPoMo - Day 12
I have been stricken with a terrible cold. It took me down when I was weakened by pilates and excessive wine consumption. Now I've felt awful for two days. Stuffy nose, scratchy throat, achy body, chills, fogginess.
I've drank EmergenC, orange juice to no avail. Now I'm taking DayQuil in the day and NyQuil at night and I'm on a vicious cycle of the two. NyQuil leaves me feeling groggy all day too.
Another bad side effect of excessive coughing with a weakened pelvic floor, is wetting my pants. Yikes. Can we NOT have to wear Depends, please?
So I was supposed to have a phone interview today and a job meeting/interview tomorrow (different opportunities). The one for today got rescheduled, thankfully. Tomorrow I'm hoping to shine despite my affliction and malaise. Both opportunities are part time and closer to home. Very appealing.
A highlight of today was having my first Starbucks Eggnog Latte of the holiday season! That and having my neighbor take all three kids to her house for dinner so I could rest. My 10 year old chickadee was sweet and gave me a back massage too, so that was a nice surprise.
If I were working currently, I would likely be at the office coughing, sneezing and spreading germs far and wide. I'm a giver! I rarely take a sick day.
