Lifeforce Sapping

4 Oct

I find it amazing what a microscopic organism can do to the human body.  Right now, my lifeforce is being attacked by a virus.  Well, by a virus and rampaging allergies — and that, my friends, is not a good combination.

My work/life balance is fragile (as well as being somewhat mythical, too).  I am trying to keep that balance working for me and not let my all-consuming job consume my life.  When I am sick as well, it gets really difficult.

Yesterday, we had a rough ol’ time at school but I survived.  Today, however, I am feeling worse — my head is NOT in the game.  I came home last night and did absolutely NO work whatsoever but hey that’s the way it goes.

So, I woke up to a sink full of dirty dishes and the feeling that life was really going to get ahead of me today.  I made my morning mochas, took my allergy meds and cold meds and now I’m waiting.  Hopefully some of the dim, head full of cotton feeling will go away over the next few minutes as the meds kick in.

But, I’m not exactly counting on it.  Maybe I’ll just survive today and tomorrow and then I can hibernate all weekend.  My poor children — Greg is going out of town for the weekend (leaving today) and I’ll be a barrel of laughs all weekend.  Oh goodie!

    Aw, I hope you’re feeling better. I had to smile at the mocha, though. I make one, too, no matter how I feel.

    BTW, thought you might find this of interest:

    Ugh… I feel your pain Liza. The ragweed has been horrid here and we’ve all been snorting and sneezing. Hope you feel better this weekend.
