Sick day

I worked from home yesterday, after coming home Tuesday night with a fever and heading straight to bed. Despite feeling sick, I was logged in at work from my kitchen table by nine, and I managed to get a lot done. It was a good day.

I’m at home again today, but I doubt I’ll get much work done. My kid’s running a temperature, so she and I are staying home together. It’s still been a good day so far; we’ve had breakfast and watched a bunch of cartoons, which is pretty good for a Thursday morning. But it hasn’t left much time for work.

Which sucks on the one hand, because I’ve got a lot of work to do on a pretty major project. But it’s nice on the other hand, because it’s a bonus day with my kid. I’ve told the office to count this one as a sick day, and as long as my kid is awake, I’m going to treat it as one.

Maybe I’ll get lucky. Maybe she’ll take a big long nap later, and let me catch up on a few things. She’s not showing any signs of slowing down yet, but a man can dream.
