I don't get sick all that often, but I've now been working on the minor-but-annoying symptoms of a cold for something like a week and a half now. It's getting old. I'm trying hard not to cough too much, but 'tis not working all that well.
I don't have bad days at work all that often, but today was the exception. Too many emails, too many changes, too much chaos, too many deadlines, too many times when I felt like I just didn't get it right. So much having to talk to people. I'll catch up tomorrow, but Thursday is an all day seminar that will require much in the way of small talk. I'll end up being exhausted by the end of the day. I haven't had a chance to get to the gym in almost a week and a half, and I feel like a slug.
I haven't been nearly as productive at home over the past few days either. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's just the OTC stuff I'm taking to counter the cold symptoms. Man, I despise that "medicine-head" feel.
Making it all so very much worse? All the political CRAP that permeates everything these days. Two more weeks of this? I think I'll end up insane first. Oh, and I make the previous statement knowing full well that I'll probably be okay no matter who wins the election (and that I'm not going to vote for either Obama or Mittens).
Do I feel better now, having ranted? Not especially. One thing is for sure though: tomorrow I'll just have to do it again. Cue the Kinks...
