Somehow, between 4pm and 6pm on Friday night, I ended up with a sore throat. That snowballed into a sinus thing that has lasted all weekend. Thinking I could overpower it, I went to a spin class on Saturday morning and then to the grocery store. Then I sat on the couch for 9 hours and watched t.v.
I literally did nothing else. I stared at my stack of papers to grade. I thought about writing blog posts....I watched New Girl for the second or third time instead.
Today, I met a coworker for breakfast (note: I was too sick to do this) and then sat around all day. I could really use a sub tomorrow but the amount of time and energy it takes to put together plans for a Monday is too much. I can't do it. It's so tempting...but I can't.
I stopped at Walgreens to buy some Afrin (because it is the only thing making life bearable at this moment) and I couldn't get the child-proof lid off. I tried forever on the drive home. I thought about taking it back to the store. Finally I went at it with a pair of scissors. I think the lid was defective.
It looks like an ape opened it and then chewed on it for awhile. But hey, at least it's open and I didn't slice any fingers off in the process.
"Cheers" to a sick Monday...I'm not sure what's worse: being sick on Monday or the Broncos winning today. A definite toss-up.
