I suppose it’s about time I updated here. I’ve been away because of what I can only describe as some strange form of summer flu. That’s what it felt like anyway. Whatever I had sucked the life out of me. I felt it coming on last Sunday evening. On Monday morning my nose stopped working and my head felt like it had 300 psi of pressure. By Tuesday I was full-blown sick.
I didn’t take any time off. I just kept going to work; miserable day after miserable day. I think that’s why I stayed sick this long (I’m not quite over it yet). The reason I didn’t stay home a day or two is because my first vacation in about three years started on Friday at 5:00 PM. I had to get all my monthly accounts taken care of before I could take off. So, by toughing it out I saved my carefully arranged sixteen straight days off.
Normally, I would have made a long and obnoxious celebratory post about starting a sixteen day vacation but I can’t just yet. The boss called Thursday and told me there was a problem with our account in New Jersey. Since I’m one of the only two installers in the company and live closer to New Jersey than they do (Los Angeles) I get to go if the guys in New Jersey can’t resolve the problem themselves.
If ! I am not really enjoying my first two days off because I don’t know whether or not I have to get on a stinky plane and go work in stinky Jersey during my vacation. I really can’t relax yet. This is just so typical of my luck.
