Good morning or afternoon, let’s have a virtual drink.
If we were having coffee, I would first apologize for talking soft. I lost my voice yesterday while my throat feels like it’s on fire. I was having on and off low-grade fever yesterday. After consistently taking pain reliever all day, I slept fitfully through a consistent fever. It was after waking up and jamming another pain reliever into my mouth along with a lot of water that I finally broke a sweat as my fever at last subsided.
Mom kept asking if I caught the Delta variant, the state I live in – Utah – is apparently a hot spot right now with cases climbing each day.
I highly doubt it besides, this feels eerily similar to the time I went to Las Vegas and there was a 40-degree temperature difference between home and Vegas. I think my illness was induced by temperature difference between indoor and outdoor, work stress, poor sleep pattern, and probably a few poor diet choices. Mostly though, I think there’s an infection somewhere, maybe my knees, it has been hurting.
The temperature has been hovering around 100-degrees for quite some time and when I head into the office, it’s crazy cold, the thermostat is set to 71-degrees. I often have to step out to warm up. That 30-degree temperature difference can really mess with one’s body temperature.
I cannot believe I’m heading to Las Vegas on Monday. It feels like just yesterday when I was asked to be staff at my work’s annual conference when it was some 5 months back. I do hope I feel better by then.
Honestly, I’m only half-looking forward to the trip. I still have so many things to catch up on. I might had been taking on too much, not only at work but life as well. I have been out in the garden every night trying to get things done so I wouldn’t come home to a bunch of yellowing plants.
I have actually been panicking a bit this week as I’m trying to get everything as caught up as I can since I may only have a day to work for the next two weeks. I felt like I wanted to scream each time an email comes in from people needing receipts and invoices. “Get it yourself, people!”
Now, enough talking, I am going to end this with pictures of the firework show I went to on Monday night. Aren’t they magical?
If we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me in this edition of #weekendcoffeeshare and hope we’ll both return next week.
