Quick Update

Here's an updated picture of my eye. Pretty, huh? It spread to the other eye though not as severely. It's actually starting to clear up a bit now. I'm still fighting a cold with a heavy duty cough but that seems to be subsiding as well. Right now, I'm just achy and tired. I need alot of sleep. It takes me a good hour or more to be able to function after I wake up in the morning. So maybe it's a good thing I was forced to stay home or else I would have likely ended up with bronchitis or worse.
Being able to work from home has been a God-send. It's helped me keep my sanity and at least feel like I'm doing something. In fact, it's been incredibly productive and that In Box that you saw in my previous post is now all DONE! I think I will continue to work over the weekend since I still can't go out. I'm hoping to be able to return by Monday. But we'll see. My eyes need to be cleared up first. Anyway, it's just incredible how much I can get accomplished when there are no co-workers knocking on my door all day long.
For now, DD and I are going upstairs to have lunch and take a nap. Now *THIS* is a work day I could get used to!!!

Weird- while I don't have the scary eye thing going on, I do have an erupting case of bronchitis, too.

I stayed home from work today also. And, not a work-from-home day. I can't even remember the last time I did that unless it was some kind of "declared" vacation day, but I don't remember when I had one of those really, either - August?

I lied in bed for hours this morning trying to stifle this cough so that I didn't wake up my son... good times.

So, thanks for your earlier comment. Someone once sent this to me and I thought I'd share.. not sure of the authorship:

"Ring all the bells that can still ring, Forget your perfect offering,
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in."

I'm feeling very medicated and most certainly, cracked-up today! ha.

Feel better.

**changed my email address today if confusing.

Ooh, that looks awful. Thank goodness you are able to work from home!

Another possible good side to this: co-workers may want to avoid you for fear of catching it, resulting in you getting caught up and staying caught up, lol.
