I’m not one who gets sick very much either and now I have hubby’s cold. I’m so disgusted by that and am a terrible patient I’m sure because I hate to be sick, really hate it.
Yesterday I had a rough day at work. I was supposed to do popcorn and instead ended up right outside the dairy door doing potato soup. I might add the dairy is the coldest spot in our store, aside from probably the meat room, but we never have to work in there. Thank goodness. I’ve done soup many times and did my best to serve up over 700 samples of hot potato soup. I couldn’t smell it, or taste it, but everyone said it was wonderful. I was so thankful I had gone to work in four layers of clothing and insulated socks, just in case. We’ve played some “musical chairs” with demos lately so I really have to think about the worst case scenario when getting ready for work.
By the time I left work yesterday, I could hardly talk I was so stuffed up. I was very happy to have a day off today and it was really needed so I could stay inside and medicate myself and do my best to get to feeling better because I do the next six days straight at my job.
Hubby went into work today to do lunch breaks. He called a minute ago to tell me I’m doing beef tips tomorrow. Wonderful! I’m in the deli area again, but at least not by the diary door. I’ll be in a spot about ten feet away instead. This is a popular dish that I’ve never done before but it’s like a beef stew that you heat in the microwave and cut up and then serve in little cups with forks. I hope I’m feeling up to the task as its holiday season and everyone we have is working. I’m not one to disappoint so will do my best as always.
Last night I was up every four hours to take another shot of Nyquil. I’m doing the same today, plus taking extra Vitamin C and also Colostrum, an herb for the immune system. I’ll kick this thing out fast, I hope, or I’ll be very miserable at work for the next week.
I hope everyone out there is staying well.
