Not playing fair

So, it's only been two weeks, but I woke yesterday with a full-blown head cold. Not sure where I got it either, though I was out a lot over the weekend. Normally though, I have a few more days of warning before I end up with a full cold, and this time, I just barely felt it late Sunday night before waking up with a severe sore throat on Monday. Took the entire day off work and after spending the morning online, I curled up on the couch yesterday afternoon and slept until Matt got home from work.

I woke up feeling a little better this morning, at least my throat isn't hurting, but my sinuses are still being bitchy. I don't normally get sick this often in the winter, even with a compromised immune system, so I think I'm going to have to step up my precautions.

Thankfully, do to the fact that I'm under a new supervisor now, the whole being home and needing some recovery time is less stressful. Used to be, I'd work when I was completely sick because I didn't want to take the day off, in case I needed to be able to work from home. I didn't want to give her cause to get upset with me. Not that I still don't feel a little bit of that anxiety when I take a day off or at home, but I know that it's not going to be held against me later now, where I never had that certainty before.

Now, I'm going to try and get some writing done, because I'm super behind on my NaNo word count and though I'm not trying to do the daily word count thing, I would at least like to try and get some where in the vicinity of where I should be so that I'm not doing any mad dashes come Thanksgiving. If that has to happen though, at least I know that I get the day after Thanksgiving off as a company holiday this year.
