My throat had been hurting a lot this week. I knew that it was probably allergies, but decided to take the day off anyway to give my voice a rest. I was surprised when I looked back at my absences so far this year. Besides the day I took off to take Cal to IU and the half day for a dentist appointment I hadn’t missed any other days.
I would love to say that I stayed in bed all day resting, but that wouldn’t fit my personality. I did manage to rest my throat and pick up some medication at CVS that really helped. I also limited my diet to soft foods. That made a difference and by the time I picked up Cam and Meg I felt ready to stop at the doctor’s office for our annual flu shots. I am sure Meg and Cam wished I wasn’t up for it, but overall the shot wasn’t too bad.
