Due to a determined virus, I have been out of order this week.
Thursday (the pinnacle of this sickness), I finally took a day off of
work to sleep and rest and try to keep my head from exploding. I posted
on a Facebook that afternoon that I was looking for a cure for death. I
figured it might start with some ginger, lemon, honey and garlic. :)
was a bit dramatic, I know. But even hopped up on painkillers (the only
way my skull didn't hurt so much that I couldn't rest my head), I was
still suffering. A lot.
Well today, after reading my status
update from yesterday, one of my wonderful neighbours came over with
chicken soup, a supplement for headaches, herbal cough drops, and syrups
to help with my congestion.
It was such a touching gesture.
earlier today, another neighbour quietly collected the leftovers from
yesterday's pot luck and made a giant pot of pork and bean soup. Then
she sent an email informing everyone that there was free soup in the
I was having a horrendous day at work. My head was
still in considerable pain and I was dealing with the aftermath of the
launch of the new payroll system which affects thousands of users in my
support region. The calls and emails were flowing and my brain was achy,
my eye sight fuzzy and my troubleshooting capacity severely diminished.
The receipt of this email was such welcomed news. Especially
after tasting it. It was delicious and really turned my day around. All
you really want when you feel crumby is something warm that you didn't
make for yourself!
Thanks so much Susana and Sharon.
