Gratitude, Day 10
Today I am grateful for the accumulation of sick time. I didn't feel good when I got up this morning, but I felt good enough to drag myself out of bed and into work. Nibbling on pretzels and sipping on Sprite made me feel better, so I made a stupid move and had pizza (delicious BBQ chicken pizza) late in the day and sent myself spiraling downward. Thankfully, I work for an employer that grants sick time based on the hours you've already worked. So I was able to come home early, kick back in my recliner, nibble on pretzels, sip sweet tea, and nap until about 4 o'clock in the morning, when my alarm dragged me to my bed for another hour of snooze-button sleep. Feeling fabulous now!
