As is often the case when one lets someone into their home while they are sick, I have become sick. I've been struggling with a cold the last few days now. You really do find yourself remembering all the times you could breathe through your nose and missing them. At least I have medication. That always helps. For the few hours after taking it at least.
What doesn't help is that I still have work to do. Sadly I can't just take a day off work because I get sick. The only time I can do that is when I already have no work left to do, which is pretty rare. But that's awesome because I always need more work to do. I've said it before and I'll say it again; being completely out of work is the worst thing that could happen to me.
I'm still having some fun at least. It's good to have someone in the house that I can talk to and do things with. I'm always a little sad when Jess goes back home because it means I'll be on my own again. I'm actually not sure when she's going home. I thought it would be today but the subject hasn't come up and I don't want to bring it up in case it sounds like I'm trying to get rid of her.
For now I'm just going to do what I can for as long as I can, and that includes sleeping, working, and taking my meds.
