Home Sick

Today, I missed work. All the parties and traveling I did this December have taken its toll on me. While it's nice to sleep for as long as I want, I don't feel good about taking a sick leave. This is the first time I skipped work due to fever and colds, wah! Fever and colds are among the ailments which I do not consider as enough reason for me not to work but I have just succumbed to them. I don't really avail of sick leaves unless I am physically incapable of working. Today is such day. I woke up feeling hot, swollen tonsils, headache and a running nose. There was just no way I could work without messing up. I'd probably just spend the day sleeping on my desk and ignoring everyone so it's really not a good idea.

I did take some meds and applied Katinco on myself before sleeping last night. I slept at around 8pm. I know that's pretty early and should have given me some time to recover, but I do not feel any better.

Anyway, I would like to remain positive and hopefully tomorrow, I can go back to work and clean my inbox before the new year. I'm supposed to work until the 31st. January 1, I'm off!

(oooh, by the way, did you know that this green Katinco ointment now comes in a stick? How creative!)
