I have this cold that seems to be sitting on my chest. It’s the achey-ness that is killing me though. I tried to run the other day – and failed miserably. I decided maybe some yoga. Another failure as my joints hurt and muscles cramped. I have learned over the years that if my legs are achey, then I’m getting sick. Weird, huh? Fighting it clearly is not good.
So, I got up today, went to email the team letting them know I’d be out, only to realize I had to go into the office. Why? Because I had a new contractor coming into the office and he was supposed to work with a team that – well – isn’t self starting meaning I have to drag them into the conversation. So I went into the office, got thru the emails, set expectations in terms of what I needed them to do so I could leave for the day. Thankfully I sounded and, apparently, looked like I crap. Yay?
I got out fo there earlier than I thought – chatted with a few friends throughout the day as I napped and tormented another friend with IMs of some of my favorite lines from Bull Durham. And I drank lots of tea….loose leave Tao of Tea cranberry orange tea. Good stuff.
And I used to drink a LOT of tea, so it was nice buying loose leaf tea and know I had a way to brew it. I love this clear teapot of mine. It has a built in strainer which is the main reason I used it.
