I woke up this morning and almost immediately I knew that I was going to call in sick. A sore throat and exhausted feeling are not the best ingredients for a productive day.
I checked the weather report and we are in for heavy rains and winds until afternoon when the skies are predicted to clear, and the temperatures will plummet. Thinking about traveling to the client’s office under those conditions gave me a headache and nausea. I signed onto my work laptop and submitted my schedule change for today and crawled back into bed with Hal The Cat.
Let the storms rage outside while I lay here safe and warm in bed, secure in the knowledge that I just gave myself a three-day weekend. I only wish I felt the physical equivalent of joy that I feel emotionally right now. I know that I am going to get some much-needed rest today and hopefully I’ll feel much better by this evening.
