Sicky Poo

Last night after yoga, I fell asleep on the couch around 8:30 and woke up around 10:30.  I couldnt figure out if what I had been feeling was all TOM or if it was something else at work too.  I had been having headaches since Dallas and crud every morning in the nostrils.  So before going to bed I slathered on the Vicks vaporub (sexy!) and took a shot of Nyquil.

This morning I woke up with aches and pains and a sore throat that made me sound like a 80year old boozer who smokes 3 packs of cigarettes a day.  Or more like what I suspect Lindsay Lohan sounds like after a hard night of partying.

I went ahead in to work because I have a lot of high profile stuff going on right now, and worked up until around 11:30.  Asked to leave, went to Walgreens and stocked up on more Nyquil, more Vicks and Theraflu (my drug of choice but I was out and my drug dealer wont deliver to a sick house :))  I drank some hot Theraflu, crawled into bed and slept till close to 4.  Ate a bowl of Frosted Flakes (because being sick makes you feel like a 5 year old), went back to bed and slept till 7.

I'm watching Survivor (because they look worse than I do) but the difference is no one is going to give me a million dollars for looking this bad.. :)

Am going to make myself stay up for a couple of hours before hitting the sauce again and sleep through the night and hopefully wake up with no sore throat and the aches and pains gone...I really want to run the Christmas Lights Run tomorrow night so I hope I feel mo betta quick!!!

This is not what you want to hear, but bag the race. Rest up and get better instead

@Jim: if it were a race that would be no problem but its not a race, just a casual social run with the group I run for when it comes to points etc., therefore everyone just runs a social paces, stopping to oooh and aaah at the pretty lights, take pictures etc.

I woke after sleeping almost 19 out of 24hours feeling much better. as of right now i still feel ok, and the little bit of left over sore throat this morning has almost passed. so i plan to still meet up with the friends and do a little pretty lights looking/jogging this evening.
