I didn’t go to work today. The mild cold that started on Sunday has evolved into a full-blown illness. I have a cough now and my chest hurts somewhat. The cough is productive, which means I cough up a bit of nice phlegm as a reward. I woke up feeling tired and generally bleh, so I decided to stay home. In my younger days I might have dragged my ass out of bed, went to work, and just been miserable at my desk all day but I’m too old for that now.
I did however get some work done at home. In the early evening after taking a nap, I was feeling good enough to log into my work computer and get a very important task done. I’ll probably go to work tomorrow as I’m feeling marginally better now. At least the weekend is close.
