sick day

One-third of my office has a cold (including my husband). I felt like if I could get through this weekend without being sick, I’d be home free. However, I woke up with a sore throat this morning. So much for that idea.

I’m glad getting a cold held off until today, though. Yesterday, we made a much-needed trip to Costco. We were out of everything at the office. I try to supplement with a few Staples items when we run out of office snacks, but they cost way too much. For example, a box of peppermint patties costs $10 more at Staples. Sure, I know there are costs involved in driving to Pittsburgh, but we only go a few times a year and we buy stuff for our house, too, so I have to think we’re coming out ahead. We also went to my step-niece’s 8th birthday party last night. So, those two things pretty much took the whole day.

Of course, I have a bunch of stuff that needs to be done today (including some outside work). I guess I better knock this stuff out before I start feeling like crap.
