Whoops, I didn’t even realize that I had forgotten to post yesterday. I seem to be even more forgetful than usual since catching this cold, which is a bit frightening when you think about the nickname, “Forgetful Jones,” one of my favorite teachers in high school gave me. It was a well-deserved nickname since I left my purse in his room pretty much every time I had his class. Eventually at some point in the day I would realize I no longer had it, and would backtrack to his classroom where I would sheepishly approach his desk and he would laugh as he held my purse out to me, and then say something like, “Looking for this Forgetful Jones?”
I’m starting to feel like I’m never going to be healthy again! Now that I’ve had my little moment of dramatics I can admit that while I still feel terrible that there is some improvement. Regardless of whether or not I feel fully recovered, I will return to work tomorrow…there is just too much to be done. I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I wake up feeling fabulous, or at least human.
The ever sensitive internet connection here was sent into a tailspin yesterday…I’m assuming because we are having the usual fun and funky spring weather complete with melting snow, higher temperatures, rain, and random snow flurries. It would appear though that we are back online and good to post.
I spent a great deal of the day sleeping, and when I wasn’t sleeping I was still in bed resting. I am now feeling much better, and am hopeful that when I get up for work tomorrow that I will feel closer to healthy than ill. Stay tuned for more fascinating glimpses into my extraordinary life.
It turns out that my horrid cold tricked me into thinking I was getting better quickly, but this evening it has taking a sneaky turn from the worse. My throat is painfully tight, my voice is rapidly disappearing, and I’m having trouble swallowing. Not to mention I sneezed a little bit ago, and it aggravated my sore throat so much that I couldn’t breathe, swallow, or respond to my friends concern for a few moments. I want to hope that this cold doesn’t get worse, but I’m afraid I’ll jinx myself by doing so…after yesterday’s post that is.
