Pink Eye, Sinus Infection, and Spreadsheet Hell

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.

Hope you're better soon. What you have is no fun. Interestingly I've had pink eye (conjunctivitis) too this year; in fact, it keeps re-occuring & I'm going to the doc this Thurs about it altho I don't presently show any symptoms. There must be a virulent strain going around because Michael's 38 yr old son had it & that's probably how I got it & then Michael got it from me. It's very contagious so you should stay home from work! :-) I've never had it as an adult before.

Unfortunately the days of staying home from work are gone and now it is working from home. :-)

Hope all your puppies are getting to their new homes okay.

"... on the road to recovery from both the illnesses AND the spreadsheets." Yeah, right! Those spreadsheets never go away! Hope you are feeling better soon.
