It certainly has been a strange few days. Last Wednesday I felt an oncoming cold. You know the feeling you get...itchy nose, scratchy eyes, etc. Next day, cold symptoms. At least they were relatively minor. I figured I would get over it quickly. Things seemed to be heading that way until I got laryngitis on Saturday. I really struggled to get out any words (some may think that was a good things) but I actually felt better. Then on Sunday I woke with one eye swollen shut AND a sinus headache. OUCH! Not fun at all. I had hoped I would feel better on Monday but no such luck. I woke with two swollen eyes, a POUNDING sinus headache and a fever. Not fun. I realized I had a sinus infection and pink eye. Now I have never had pink eye before and had always thought it was a sickness reserved for children and their parents. Not being a parent or being around children very often, I was smug in my delight of never getting it. Well that is what I get for my smugness, almost 50 and my first case of pink eye. On top of all this illness, I am in the midst of spreadsheet hell. I won't bore you with the gory details but suffice it to say that having a 101 degree temperature AND trying to update (literally) thousands of lines of information is hardly a recipe for fun or success. This has been my life in a nutshell the last few days. Fortunately I am on antibiotics and on the road to recovery from both the illnesses AND the spreadsheets.
