Gah, I absolutely HATE being sick. I hit the germ-jackpot lottery back in mid-Feb., catching bronchitis from my soon-to-be-ex boss. It was a lovely parting gift, indeed. *eyeroll* After two weeks of Mucinex and other drugs, simply saying "Hello" no longer starts a paroxysm of coughing, so I call that a win.
Gotta say though, it sure makes a great first impression to come to work sick the first week or so at one's new job -- still, it's not like calling in sick would have been any better... talk about a classic "no win" situation.
Anyway, I'm on the mend, and this coming week I'll be back volunteering, in the evenings this time, with the wonderful Jim Neal folks. Can't wait!
