I think I'm getting sick. It would have to start up two days before my weekend.

I have plenty of PTO time saved up - 140 hours vacation plus 240 hours of long-term sick leave that I can use if I'm out sick longer than 5 days, but I think I need a break from work (hence the not wanting to be sick on my weekend). A coworker told me yesterday to just call in if I don't feel like working for a day or two, but I can't do that. That would mean that someone else would have to do overtime to cover my shift, with practically no notice & it wouldn't be fair to them. Plenty of other people do it, but we're short-staffed enough without a perfectly healthy (until now) person taking off for no good reason.

My throat & glands are sore, I have a headache, I'm dizzy & am having difficulty focusing. I know I need to eat but nothing really sounds good or worth the effort. I've not been sleeping well lately & the pain has been kinda bad, so I think the fibromyaliga is acting up too.

I have some cute stories & pictures from the little hobbits, but I'm feeling really fuzzy & keep leaving out words that are sorta vital to the sentence (& the ones that get in are often misspelled), so I'll go away for now.

Hope y'all have a lovely weekend.

If you're sick -- stay home. You don't need to be spreading that bug around at work.

That's not being selfish. That's being cautious -- and smart.
