I called in sick for the first time ever this morning. I knew last night I wasn’t feeling up to another full shift after opening the bakery with the onset of a cold, but I was scheduled for 7:30 this mornin’ so I tried to call as soon as possible to get a fill-in.
Thank God for coworkers who answer their messages at 5:15 in the morning!
Today was all about recuperating so I’m well enough to do a little Christmas shopping tomorrow and get back to work by 6pm.
This is my recipe for making a sick day as “well” as it can be.
-Buckets and buckets of sweet black tea with brown sugar and cream.
-Fruit. Apples with honey walnut cream cheese and tomorrow pineapple smoothies.
-Anything that goes down easy. Grilled cheese and soup. Killer combo.
-Pills. Vitamin C and Dayquil/Nyquil.
-Biblical stories of gotten-through trials.
-Still absorbed in the 18th century: my web comic as well as that charmingly mistake-riddled Felicity story.
-Story editing. I finished a chapter today! Woohoo!
-The Pirate Queen: particularly If I Said I Loved You. Oh baritone love.
–Promising Promises by Jon McLaughlin. Amazing with the piano.
-Josh Groban’s Love Only Knows. *melts*
-Another Jon McLaughlin with piano loveliness I’ll Follow You.
A Humorous Classic Film
–Muppets Treasure Island is the movie for tonight. It makes me happy inside. :D And outside. For it causes laughter.
-Continuous Skype chats with best friend.
-Shea butter and cocoa lotion.
