Sickness and Catching Up with Sleep (and TV)!

Since I missed my personal post on Sunday because I was sick to death coughing and sneezing all day. I feel like the blog’s been a bit empty, maybe its a good time to share a bit about what has been going on.

For the first time in forever, I took 2 days off of work not for vacation but for sick leave.  Right in between the deadline which I technically don’t have a day to spare.  The stress level is skyrocketing but yesterday, I went on the annoying wait and hunt for the doctor at the walk-in clinic that took me 6 hours to finally get treated from lining up 2 hours in the morning to get my appointment to waiting for the appointment and then sitting at the clinic waiting for the doctor to get in after she was an hour late to arrive.  Oh the world of free healthcare in Canada or maybe its just Quebec’s problem.  Either way, the final diagnosis was that I had an ear infection.  I was sent home with ear drops and antibiotics. YAY! First step to the road of recovery, right? I was disappointed because I ended up missing the Fantasia Fest movie that I wanted to go see, but I was way too sick to go and I shouldn’t go around infecting others. *pats myself on the back*

I was expecting that I would be able to go back to work yesterday but when I woke up, dizziness was all I felt.  I was so tired from those antibiotics fighting its battle or whatever its doing in there, that I had to just sleep.  I called the office with my hoarse and almost vanishing voice and told my coworker that I wouldn’t be able to make it but that I will try to go in to pick up some work if I was feeling a bit better. I did end up eventually doing that after getting 3 more hours of sleep.

Other than getting an immense amount of sleep that both my mom and boyfriend has agreed that I need and probably deserve after the roller coaster of emotions of a weekend (that probably didn’t help my healing from this virus or cold or whatever you would like to call it). I did manage to catch up on TV series.

First up, I caught up with the 2 episodes of Whose Line Is It Anyways? I thought it was pretty good.  Then, I started watching Under the Dome and caught up with the past 4 or 5 episodes.  My mind is a blank as to which one they are at right now but its actually pretty awesome so far.  I really like it. I know a lot of the cast from various movies and TV shows and I’m really interested in seeing how it turns out.

I also started Sherlock from BBC.  I’ve been meaning to watch it for a while and haven’t found the time to.  These are crazy long episodes compared to normal so I’m still watching Season 1. Benedict Cumberbatch is pretty awesome. The guy who plays John is an actor I love as well 🙂

Its probably been one of the most tiring and crazy weekends in ages but at least, things are starting to look up.  I can’t wait to be well and able to talk again like myself again! In the meantime, its a good opportunity to reset some good sleeping habits! 🙂

I have about 400 emails to catch up with and I will tend to that tonight! 🙂 Things should get back to normal soon once I find the energy to write up reviews and figure out the photo challenge 😉

Stay healthy everyone!
