Couldn’t bring myself to get up this morning. I’m exhausted, not feeling well and just downright tired. At least I don’t have a fever! The sore throat is a bit better, but I’m starting to develop a slight dry cough. I really wanted at least one good run before the race so I’d feel better about it going in. That may not happen. A good friend thinks I’m better off getting my rest than to push it right before the race. I’m inclined to agree!
As I sit here and sip my ginger tea, my eyelids are so heavy. I could sleep another couple of hours, but I don’t want to take any more time off from work until the issue with how many days I have left is resolved. I track the vacation days I take and I haven’t taken many this year because of our financial situation. My boss doesn’t believe I have 9 vacation days left. I know it’s right, but until he gets off his bum and checks it, I’m not taking a single sick day or scheduling another vacation day. He’d better check it soon! There’s only 2 more months in the year and I WILL take it all at once so I don’t lose it if he insists on waiting much longer!
I rant about that because I sure could use a sick day. I believe I’ve only taken 3 and we only get 5 a year. Guess I”m going to have to keep track of those now, too! I don’t usually track them because I rarely take any sick days. Oh, well, can’t trust the Establishment!
I”m off to sip a bit more ginger tea before heading to work! Have a great day everyone!
