I'm back at work after taking Friday off due to the plaque.
Today I feel better, but I sound horrible! My voice just keeps fading away as the day goes on. My nose is still stuffed up, but at least I can breathe and now my teeth are sore because of all the congestion in my sinus areas, but other than that, I seem to be okay. I was not so good on Friday and felt better Saturday and pushed myself a little too hard on Sunday trying to finish Christmas shopping, so I foresee a few more days of this yuck and then I should be as good as new.
I really have no more work focus for the rest of this month. Holiday party is finished and I don't have much to do until the new year, so I will try to make myself look busy and stay off the radar until January rolls around and I can start sweating the Volunteer Recognition Dinner in April.
I really did nothing this weekend except shopping on Sunday, as I mentioned, with Mom. With the exception of a few online purchases that have yet to get here via mail, I think I am done with my shopping and I'm not even too concerned with my total costs. I think I did a pretty good job! Seriously though, I kept with the gift theme Mom laid out this year of "useful/practical" gift giving. No knick-knacks or dust collectors and once you find the gift, you don't have to supplement it with lots of little extras just so it seems "enough." One is enough. Plus, I didn't have many more ideas after just the one! We all have so much stuff these days!
