As soon as I decided that my April resolution would be to take care of myself, I got sick.
Apparently, I was a little too late.
I haven’t been dramatically ill. No days off work, no missing of meetings. Just stuffy head, ear ache, lack-0f-appetite, hack up a lung cold and sinus symptoms that make me feel crappy but not crappy enough.
It’s true that normally when I feel a sinus infection coming on I usually take a preemptive sick day to rest. I sleep for 15 hours or so and this usually takes care of it. I stop being sick and the symptoms never get worse. I don’t miss any more days of work AND I don’t get anyone else sick.
I didn’t feel like I had that option this week (and yes, I am so incredibly grateful that usually I do have that option). So I got sick.
Have I taken care of myself since then?
Well, sort of.
Ok. Not really.
In the interest of full disclosure, here is what I had for dinner tonight: five Oreos, a glass of milk, and a cheese quesadila.
In my defense I did have an incredibly healthy salad for lunch.
So much for April. Can I start over in May?
