Thanks everyone for your kind well wishes. I try to be very positive and be in the game, but I’ve been down and out for 2 days now with this stinkin’ respiratory “thing”. I missed 2 days of work (no matter what, I HAVE to go tomorrow as I have one on one appointments with clients – nice huh? A little health education advice and a free side of virus).
I went to Boot Camp yesterday – probably not the smartest move. Probably should have stayed home to rest, but I got in most of the workout and I guess that’s a good thing. My quad hurts more after class than it did before and I’m obviously still sick, but . . . I did most of the class – woo!
I’m going to skip tomorrow’s Boot Camp class – with a 50K trail relay race on Saturday – I absolutely need to rest and recover as much as possible. I’m hoping the extra rest helps so that I don’t feel badly about skipping it for nothing.
Got to tell you about a conversation I had with my husband 30 minutes ago (you’ll need these 2 pieces of background information: 1.) we have a central medication drawer in addition to each of us having our own personal drawer where we keep our hygiene items; 2.) I’ve been sick since Sunday night around 8:00 p.m.):
Hubz: “You look really like you really don’t feel well”
Me: Yes (with a mound of used tissues sitting next to me and me coughing my head off) I really do feel crappy
Hubz: Do I have any cherry nyquil ‘cuz that stuff is amazing?
Me: The used bottle you had in the medicine drawer was thrown away this summer because it expired 2 years ago.
Hubz: Did you look in my "MY” drawer?
Me: No, why? Do you have meds in YOUR drawer?
Hubz: (goes in and checks his drawer and pulls out the Kroger brand of Nyquil that contains medicines to treat EVERYONE of my symptoms)
Me: WHAT.THE.HECK. I’ve been sick since Sunday and you’re just now offering this up?????????
Anyone else think this was a noble gesture just a little bit late?
