What is it with this time of the year?
Yeah, I know, the seasons are changing. But as I write this at the end of a dreary weekend, it annoys me even more as I know by the time you read this, I’ll be in the office and probably not feeling all that great. And I know I’ve had this happen to me during this time of year in the past.
It started early Friday afternoon when I had a tickle in my throat. I knew that wasn’t a good sign. Later in the day, swallowing slightly hurt. I went to a baseball game and things seemingly were a tad better. That night, a little bit with the swallowing again, but water helped.
I slept pretty well Saturday, though I didn’t get many hours as I was playing softball in the morning. It was a dreary day. By the time we were done, it was drizzling some. By the time I headed home, I felt decent but it was still lingering.
Saturday into Sunday – I slept well. I figured that would help, but it seems like it’s morphed into a small chest/head cold. Just what I don’t feel like dealing with. I’ve had a few coughs and the sniffles. I’m sure Monday will be a day of a stuffy head, so we’ll see how this whole thing grows or goes away.
It’s supposed to be rather dreary on Monday, so it’ll be a good day to jump into a bunch of things at work and kind of close myself in my office.
It’s good when there are a few things piled up and you know you need to get them done – and you have a bit of a cold. You know you can bury yourself in the work and hopefully make the day go faster.
My true hope is this dang thing only lingers for a day or so and doesn’t turn into a full-fledged cold as I don’t really feel like taking time from work and I don’t really feel like being sick, especially being the weather is supposed to be pretty nice later this week. We will see.
Hopefully your Monday is better than I am imagining mine will be!
