This is absurd. I rarely get sick. I took one pre-emptive sick day last year because I felt a cold coming on and wanted to rest up and avoid it. That was it. The last time I was sick before that was December of 2007.
Now, in the span of a few weeks, I get struck with a terrible cold twice. UGH! This is so frustrating. I'm going on vacation later this week to beautiful sunny Fort Myers, Florida - I don't want to spend my vacation blowing my nose and coughing like a maniac on the beach. Not to mention on the flight - I don't want to be that guy.
I worked a full day today, but let my bosses know that I'm taking tomorrow off as a sick day. Even if I'm feeling somewhat better, I think just getting a good night's sleep and some relaxation will help. I'm pretty sure that I caught this cold from some of my fellow office-mates and innkeepers, as both sets of co-workers have been passing a cold around lately. I guess that's the downside to having two jobs: double the cold and flu exposure. I also worked over thirty hours at the inn last week (not counting the late night shenanigans getting the hot water pump fixed last Tuesday night after pulling a double office/inn shift). Actually, between both jobs, as of this evening, I've put in73 hours of work since last Sunday without a day off. This isn't something I normally do - I was covering shifts for another innkeeper who was on vacation, hence all the extra shifts, but I really didn't expect it to hit me like this. I guess this is my body's way of telling me I need to slow down and get some rest. But I was planning to do with my week's vacation, damnit - why couldn't my body just hold up for another two days?? :\
