I have been in Calgary for nearly two years and in the last few days, I have developed my first cold while being here. I hate colds. I imagine that we all do.
I suspect, although I can’t prove it, that my co-worker gave it to me just before Christmas. He was off sick, possibly with a cold, I am not sure then came in on Christmas Eve. Our office area is small and I am sure that we touched the same things. If it was you, you’re a bastard. If it wasn’t, you’re still a bastard. 🙂
I took some Tylenol Cold and Sinus this morning – seems to be helping a bit. The cold started in my chest, that part of it has nearly cleared up – it has now moved full on to my head. Thankfully, I purchased a 9 pack of Kleenex a few weeks back, I am sure that I will be using it often over the next few days.
One aspect of having a bad cold is the extra sleep that I seem to get. Yesterday, for instance was a good sleep day. I watched the World Juniors from 5:30am and the game ended shortly after 8 or so. I had a nap from about 9am until almost noon. I went out and got a haircut, I hope that I didn’t share my cold with the stylist, that wouldn’t have been nice of me. I got home around 2:30 or so and laid down for another nap. I was supposed to go out with my little brother to Zoo Lights but he cancelled or rather postponed until today. I woke up shortly after 5pm and was in bed again before 9:30. That is a lot of sleep for one day.
I have been up this morning since about 3:15am, seems to be a typical time for me to wake up. I get a fair amount done in the mornings this way. The downside is that I can’t stay up late, I am typically in bed by 10pm at the latest.
I work this morning at 8am until 10am. I am sure that I will catch a quick (2 hour) nap after finishing. I am sure work will be dead, I am working from home as well so I don’t need to go in or anything.
Hopefully, this will be my last cold for a bit. Wish me luck on that one.
