I got my shirt and I love it! Thanks to everyone who set up the whole thing.
I'm not running because I'm getting sicker and sicker. What started off as a cold has developed into a full-blown sinus infection. What's with that? I spent thirty-one years NEVER having sinus infections, and now I've had my second one in two years. I hope this won't turn into a yearly thing, because I am absolutely miserable. I slept sitting up in a chair in our living room last night so I wouldn't have to put my head down. I've already taken aspirin and ibuprofen and a hot bath and a hot shower in an attempt to reduce some of the pain and pressure in my face. I would really like to just sit absolutely still until I feel better.
Instead, I will spend the day cleaning my house and cooking, doing laundry, washing china, and stressing out about whether the turkey is thawed since we're hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow.
The one concession I make to this infection is my plan to call out of work tonight. I've waited tables for six years there and have called out a total of two times so far. Even so, I still feel bad about it. Really, though, I'm feeling like death. There's no way I can remain on my feet all night. I'll be lucky if I can even pull together what I need to for the holiday tomorrow. Ugh, why such bad timing?
Sorry for the whining; I'm not good when I'm sick.
