Summer cold

Two types of cold going on at my house:

1. The a/c is repaired....Hooray!!!! The best thing that's happened around here in weeks.

2. We're both sick with heavy colds. Is there anything more miserable than a cold virus during hot weather? Probably not much.

Yesterday at work I just wanted to crawl into a hole somewhere and die. I was miserable, what with sneezing, coughing, sweating, and body aches all while having to put on a pleasant face and run the front office. It was simply awful and the day dragged. I'm hoping today isn't just a repeat of that, but so far this morning I'm not very hopeful. I woke up feeling the same as yesterday.

At least it will be cool and pleasant in the house when I make it back home to collapse on the bed.

  1. I have that darn summer cold also. It came over me quickly and I hope it leaves at the same speed.

    I am glad to read the A/C is functioning well again.

  2. HURRAY FOR THE AC!!!!
    All right- I'm gong to play mother here. You should NOT be a work. Not only for yourself but for all the other people. I know that not going in on the last days of the year is probably not even possible but Lord, I can't imagine anything much more miserable.

  10. Oh you poor thing! It must have been difficult fielding all the stuff that comes your way at the school's front desk. When does your summer vacation start?

    1. We have one more week of school...two whole days (Monday and Tuesday) two half days (Wednesday and Thursday) and then Friday is a day without students for teachers and staff to clean out their rooms/offices/desks and to finish up any leftover business. I'm not sure if I'll have to work on Friday or not. In any case, by next Saturday I'll be home free!

  11. Ugh! Can you call in sick? Is that an option? I always feel justified, working in a school -- after all, don't want to make the kiddies ill. (Even though they probably GAVE you that cold!)

    YP anticipated my question too -- when's your last day? Must be close. We have two more weeks to go.

    1. I was afraid that there wouldn't be anyone to cover for me if I called in sick. I was tempted, believe me!

  12. I was going to say/ask exactly what YP and Steve wrote.
    Hopefully, you will be rid of that nasty cold quickly.

  13. It's horrible to be so sick, but it would be even worse if the AC still weren't repaired. I hope you both feel better soon.

    Love,

  14. Sorry you're not feeling well. I don't colds often, but when I do it's not good to be around me.
