I stayed home from work today. I had a bad migraine last night and didn’t sleep well plus I think I might be sick. My ears have been hurting and popping lately and I have a cough and an occasional runny nose. It’s been like this off and on for about 2 weeks. It’s like I get over it and it just keeps coming back! I really hope I get better soon.
I’m lucky that my job has a pretty lenient attendance policy. We get 10 paid days a year before they start the disciplinary process. That might not seem like much except I work for a school district so on top of that we have many, many, other days off. I usually don’t miss much work anyway. I think the most days I’ve missed in a year is 7. I got the flu that year and had to miss three days in a row. This year I have missed two.
Even though I hardly ever miss work I still feel bad when I have to call in. I know that my bosses don’t like it. Luckily one of my bosses is my girlfriend and she doesn’t mind. Honestly I don’t think anyone else really minds either but my mind tells me I am being a horrible employee. My girlfriend tells me my mind is wrong.
I will probably be at work tomorrow. I’m not sure though because right now I actually feel worse than I did when I woke up. It’s my own fault though. I didn’t rest like I was supposed to and instead spent the day cleaning the house to please my girlfriend. She is happy with the house but not happy with me. I’m coughing pretty bad now and she wishes I would have just slept all day.
I better head to bed now. I need the rest and my writing isn’t very good due to my sickness. I think I should quit while I’m behind. I am glad I was able to do something though. With it being NaBloPoMo and all I can’t let this cold stop me!
Good night everyone :)
