Woe is me

Woe is me! I’ve had a bit of a sore throat all week, but last night it developed into full blown……. something. Flu, bronchitis, really bad cold……….. I had a rough night last night, running a fever rocking between 100 and 101, but still got up this morning hoping I felt good enough to hit the sales. Uh, no. I went back to bed and didn’t get up until 12:00 and have been in and out of sleep ever since. Still with that little fever. It’s now a little after 5 pm.

There are two types of people in the world when it comes to running a fever. Three, really. The group who begins taking a fever reducer immediately, the group who lets the fever do it’s thing fighting infection and those who don’t fool with any of that, but head straight to the doctor. It’s no surprise I’m in the stubborn group. As long as the fever doesn’t get too high and I’m not too miserable, I let it do it’s thing. So I feel pretty crummy.

This is another reason I don’t want a store that has a regular, several days a week open schedule. What if I was supposed to be open today? I’d be up he creek without a paddle. No one to take over for me. But, since I’m not scheduled to be open today, I have the luxury of nursing my whatever-it-is-I-have.

I’m lying down as I type this which isn’t easy, even with the laptop, so I’ll end this post. Just wanted to moan and groan a little. I try not to do that for real. I’m waiting for Mr. I’m Working Midnights to get up and go get the DQ Blizzard I requested several hours ago when he was up briefly. He didn’t seem to understand the urgency of it. He’d better hurry and that’s all I’ve got to say about that!
