I have my first cold in a couple of years. I would credit this to not working in an office with other diseased people and generally not being around a lot of people too often. I am not sure where I got this cold but it sucks. Yesterday, I was losing my voice. For those of you who actually know me likely can’t picture me not talking…
Today, my nose is quite blocked and my head feels “full”, that is compared to the normal empty feeling. Oh well, it will pass. I bought a box of mandarin oranges so the vitamin C will help, right? Oh wait, there was probably a study that oranges cause some disease – colds likely.
This has been one of the busiest weeks ever at work. It is the middle of December and one week from Christmas and everyone and all of their family members are submitted tickets like there is no tomorrow. On top of that, a lot of our IT staff are off, lieu time needs to be used, vacation time needs to be used, flex days need to be used. Hopefully, next year vacations and time off will be handled a little better so we aren’t left so short for a few weeks. Last year at this time, it was dead. I don’t know why there are so many issues. Well, it is keeping us employed, that is for sure.
Next week should, and I stress should, be slower. I hope it is. We have less IT staff around and if the volume of tickets stays high, it will be a bad week. I am covering an evening shift on Monday. Will be interesting, I have not worked an evening for a number of years. Perhaps I will have a bit of a chance to catch up.
My insomnia continues. It does allow me to try to catch up on work though. Mind you, at 2:25 in the morning, there aren’t a lot of people working, so contacting someone is out.
Follow-up appointment today with the doctor. Had my tests last week and an ultrasound Monday. I go right after work. Then, the weekend. No plans really – baseball meeting on Sunday and that’s about it.
Well, enjoy your Friday – only a few hours until we are all done with this week. Enjoy your weekend.
