I’m Back … Sort Of

I’m back … well, sort of.

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been feeling under the weather. It hasn’t been down on my back sick, but sick enough to muddle my brain {as if anyone could tell}.

Technically, I’ve been battling a bout of bronchitis. I’ve had it before, but this time it has been different. Normally, it was a lot of hacking and coughing … you know, real deep stuff. Five minutes or so and a chug of cold water and the spasm was over. This time around, there’s the coughing, but it’s not deep. And it has totally wiped me out.

I have been able to work at my day job, but that’s really not so much of an accomplishment. Since my office is attached to my house, I would trudge into the office, do a little work, head back into the living room, sit in my lounger, turn on some soft music and drift off for a nap. After the nap, it’s back to the office for some more work … and so on. It’s made for some weird office hours.

I tried to put down some thoughts over the past few days, but knew I was in trouble when the eyes closed with my fingers still on the keyboard.  So I opted to sit some time out and let the rest of the blog world take over.

It’s also reinforced a basic principle of life — we are not in control, as much as we like to think we are. A little thing like bronchitis can change your outlook. I was running at a frenetic pace and needed to slow down. Of course, I wouldn’t do that on my own.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Know how to work, but also know how to play.

    I’ve been down and out too. Hope you feel better soon. It sometimes takes weeks to get over it.
    Drink lots of water, rest and try not to fall asleep at the keyboard!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
