Crap. I'm sick.
I blame Murphy, as I oftne do. He's one rat bastard.
I should have known the PowerBook would arrive today (err, technically that was yesterday).
I woke up this morning (yesterday morning... whatever) feeling a bit tired and stuffed up, but figured it was my allergies acting up again. I took some Benadryl, which helps but makes me tired. (That's an understatement. It's like taking a powerful sleeping pill.) However, by lunch time the tiredness hadn't worn off yet and I couldn't focus on anything. I figured I just needed some food. But that didn't help either.
It wasn't until about 2pm that my head started to hurt and I got really tired. And I noticed a hint of a sore throat. That's when I knew I was sick.
I could blame the weather in Cleveland this past weekend. It was cooler and rainy. And it seems that Mike also has a sore throat, so maybe there's something to that.
I held out as long as I could but head to head home during the worst traffic (about 6pm). By 8pm I was in asleep. I slept about 3 hours before getting up to eat and watch The Empire Strikes Back. That's what your supposed to do when sick, right? :-)
Anyway, I found some "expired" Tylenol Allergy Sinus tablets in the medicine cabinet and it seems to be doing a decent job of keeping some of the symptoms at bay.
Am I the only one who doesn't believe the expiration dates on OTC medication?
Ugh. Now I have to look at my meeting schedule tomorrow to see what I can do about being at work for a few hours rather than all day. I'd rather not infect the rest of the company.
Hopefully I'll be well enough to fly this weekend. It's looking like some good Spring soaring conditions will be upon us.
Meanwhile, the heat is turned up and I've "fed" my cold. The only real benefit is that I may find time to catch up on some stuff that I've been behind on--when I'm not sleeping. Being sick does that sometimes. And my sleep schedule should be amusing too.
