Psycho cold

I came down with a bad cold on Sunday but went ahead and went to work on Monday and today. I felt silly to take another Monday off. I do seem to get sick on Sunday night or Monday morning a lot. I don't know if I try to do too much on the weekends, or let my guard down and give into an illness or my body is saying "I don't want to go to work! NO, NO!" I worry that people at work will wonder if I'm really sick on a Monday that I call in or just recovering from a bad weekend.

Anyway, I've sneezed and sniffled my way through the last two days and I'm sure everyone at work does not want to be around me. My nose is sore and I feel like crap. Colds are so depressing because you feel like crap but no one really takes a cold seriously. It's only a cold.

I'm watching a snake shed it's skin on the Discovery channel. I wish I could that. How neat to just get brand new skin once a year. How nice. It reminded me of when Eustace in "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" by CS Lewis became a dragon and had to shed his skin. He ended up pink and clean, though it did hurt, and I always thought that it would be nice to have new skin.
