I didn't even know it was supposed to snow today, but we have another snow day. That's working out pretty well for me, because I have a sinus infection. Thanks to Abraham, George, and Mother Nature I haven't had to take any sick days.
You know how you have some co-workers that will show up to work coughing, sneezing, pale, and looking like they can barely stand up? You ask why they are there, and they rasp out some explanation about a meeting they can't miss or something, expecting you to be impressed with their dedication to their job.
Really, you are just annoyed that they brought all their germs in to work to share with you, and you wonder where they got the idea that they are so important that the whole organization will shut down if they take a day off to recover?
Ya, that's not me. If I'm sick, I take a day off. So far, I have not discovered any shocking, irreversible damage that has occurred from this practice. So far, my district and even my school have seemed to function just fine without me and my germs on those days. Still, its nice not to have to waste a sick day and worry about how much my class is torturing the poor sub.
I've been pretty much doing nothing but watching TV or movies, but I have been getting my ab workouts in by coughing like crazy. I think I am going to have to skip the track workout tonight, so I'll try to keep my ridiculous amount of exercise guilt in check. Better to miss a few workouts then to be sick and miss the marathon right? I'm just going to keep repeating "a few missed runs won't derail my training" over and over and over until I start to believe it....
Do you go to work sick, or are you a wimp like me and stay home until you are all better?
