Well, I made it back to work today.
I thought, for a while, it was a mistake. By mid-morning, I was wrung out and tired, feeling slightly feverish and just generally unwell. As my bud Sparkling Red can attest, being sick and then feeling better is a deceptively shallow pool. You dive in and end up relapsed, or worse off than you were because you pushed too hard.
The clock seemed to be running on me though. My boss told me not to pressure myself to come back to the office, but that was for yesterday. He might not have appreciated my taking another day away “just in case.” Besides, I had a lot to do and I don’t know if I could have done them over the tiny urethra of wireless I have at home. Better than stolen connection, but only mildly.
So I sucked it up and came on in. It wasn’t so bad; I ate a little something and it seemed to perk me up. Snacked on the awesomeness of pecans. And did most of the day through. I’m sure I’ll sleep soundly tonight, but I have only tomorrow to get through and then I can laze about all weekend.
To my brave readers, I’ve not forgotten you. I appreciate you acting like you really can’t wait for the next installment of my WIP to read, and I love you all for it, but I’ve been too ill to marshal the energy to get on my own personal computer (I spent a lot of time cussing at my work computer yesterday and then called it a night from work and just sat). I’m a little tired so I can’t promise it will be tonight, but would tomorrow night be all right? If any of you have a problem with it, please let me know and I’ll adjust, but I need to just rest when I get home, so be patient if you will.
So that’s it, just an update to let you know I’m not dead despite appearances to the contrary. God bless and I’ll be ’round again soon. Hang in there, all.
