Victoria Day Long Weekend

Well it’s back to work now that the glorious Victoria Day long weekend is over. Everyone here is off talking about how fabulous their weekend was. How was mine, you ask?


Honestly, that’s the best way to describe it.

For the last week or so I have been pumping my body with lots of vitamin C and fluids in hopes that I could ward off a cold that I could totally feel coming. You know: the sore throat with the occasional sneeze. I knew my immune system was going to possibly give in at some point, but REALLY, did it have to happen during the LONG WEEKEND that I had been waiting for since the LAST long weekend?!

So there I was, snotty, coughing, head a spinnin’, feverish chills and a throat so sore that I could have sworn that someone shoved sandpaper down my throat at night. Now you’d figure that I would have rested Friday night all the way till Monday evening… HAH! I scoff the idea. Rather than doing just that, I dragged my sorry ass out and continued to watch the hockey game Friday and Sunday night, including going out Saturday night for my friend’s birthday.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I ended up going home early on Saturday because MY GOD I thought I was going to die. Thankfully I had some smarts in me and rested all Sunday day, afternoon AND early evening… until I got back up and went out again to the pub for the hockey game.

My face, grimace, can.t.stop.

BUT. Fret not for I wised up and stayed home all Monday eating can after can of chicken soup, drinking fluids, attempting to OD on vitamin C, snacking on Advil and drinking Benelyn cough syrup straight from the bottle.

Today, I’m still feeling like poop, but I’m at least seeing an improvement. Here’s hoping that I don’t bring myself back down because heaven forbid I miss the hockey game tonight.

Truth be told, when this hockey season is over I am SO going to lock myself up in my place and not leave for a week. Okay, except maybe for work… and to possibly get groceries… oh can’t forget laundry… err… and maybe leave to see a few certain people…

Hope you start to feel better! I felt the same way too a couple weeks ago, it feels like I'm constantly getting sick! Back in late August of 2005, I got sick and didn't feel 100% better until early November. How about them apples? That was pure hell! Been sick like 5 times since, damn weak immune system... grr...

Thanks! As of right now it's just my throat that is sore and my nose is still stuffed up. But I know what you mean regarding weak immune system - I'm the same way... constantly getting ill.
