Love, Work and Balance

Work is love made visible. - Kahlil Gibran


Well, here we are.  January is off to a great start.  To be honest, the first five days of this month were horrible for me.

New Year's Day started off productively.  My family went to Mass for the Solemnity of Mary.  I made a delicious egg bake for breakfast.

I intended to take the dog on a long walk because the sun was shining after a fresh snow fall and everything was glistening.  It was beautiful.

After cleaning the kitchen, I suddenly felt nauseous and tired.  My vision was off and I knew a migraine was hitting me.  I tried to head it off with Tylenol but ended up laying down in the dark, sobbing from the pain.

I struggled through the next few days at work, but residual headaches and grogginess made me feel miserable.

Sunday morning I woke up with a sore throat, fever and mild congestion.  It was brutal.  I missed work on Monday.  I couldn't even sit or stand in an upright position without feeling like I was going to faint.
