What Purpose Do Colds Serve?  
Part of me wonders if the Cold and Flu season is just the medical industry's version of a holiday (though it's no real picnic for them, trust me) and then this happens. The day Inventory starts, we have a skeleton crew at the store, and I catch FE Manager Brian's nasty mucus-fest. I HATE calling out. I feel so guilty, seeing as how I seen to be the main one who never does it.

But dizzy and sick to your stomach don't go well with ladderwork and putting up freight. If I was at the registers or on Customer Service today, that would be different, but I can't see try to do my job like this. ...Did I mention that I'm not a fan of calling out? *pouts, then sneezes*

The good news is that Anissa comes home today and we'll be able to get some work done. Bad news with that is that she has no bedside manner. She was thrilled to be coming home until she heard me. I get the feeling she'll be home later than expected.

*whine* I hate being sick.

*hugs* sunlike, love, take your time. LS is going anywhere. And thank you for the 'get well'. Here's hoping that I'm back to normal tomorrow.

Poor thing. *gentle hugs*

Sometime later you should treat yourself to a shower. It'll clear your nasal passages... and it could be fun. Who knows. ; )

Good luck with Anissa. *snorts*

(Good luck with Anissa. *snorts*)

She got home about an hour ago, just before she had to run off to work. Handled it pretty well, all things considered. Her preferred method is to ignore the fact that I'm sick period. *LOL* But she did make me some spiced chai, so I'll forgive her.

Gonna have to take more Theraflu soon. *sigh*

Take the Theraflu. And get lots of rest. And write. Writing helps, too.

Well, for me it does. ; )

I'm going to work on my new video, even though I still have NO DC clips. About to beg Caroline to send me some. Anissa's getting caught up at work.
sean_montgomery: Brandon - huh?sean_montgomery on January 30th, 2007 12:14 am (UTC)
Ooh yeah! Work on the pretty new video!

Just don't wait too long to write. Muses hate to be ignored. *glances at her own, who is tapping her foot impatiently*

Nope, I won't. She'll be getting all the attention she can handle when she gets home. Anissa and I have barely been able to talk since she left Friday morning and have been thinking about the writing all weekend. Trust me, we'll get alot finished before B gets the chapter Friday night.

Oh, I'm sure you two will. I just have to remember that you have later nights than I do. : )

Speaking of nights, there's a family gathering going on that I didn't know about. I'll BBL. Sorry. : (
