Friday I settle in, and I plan the week for the blog. I put aside outfits I hope there will be an occasion to wear, and I plan a rough schedule for posting and I might even schedule a post or two if I’m super organised. It’s my day.
Often you will find me nestled in a corner of a coffee shop, glasses on and head down. I tap away at the keys pausing only to greet new strangers taking their place in the seats beside me. Nodding then when they leave.
Today is different though. Today I have this cough that is annoying me, a raspy voice that makes communication slow and difficult and a runny nose that often requires wiping. My thoughts are disjointed and broken. Don’t those words mean the same thing? SEE! I’m not sick, but I am not well either.
I feel the looks as I blow my nose. Probably the same looks I was throwing around the post office earlier this week. I consider going home. But there’s just too much to be distracted by at home. Clothes to pack and things to tidy, bills to pay and accounts to reconcile. I decide to stay put and try not to sniffle as much.
This post is to update you all. I guess, to share some behind the scenes and as a contagion diary, of sorts. I told you this would happen. Curse that person that sneezed on me, next time I see you I’m going to kick you in the shins. You’ve been warned sneeze-monster. I’m gunning for you.
After I pick up another box of tissues, that is.
Hi! I’m Melissa Walker Horn. Around here, they call me Suger. I’m the Chief Blogger and doer of all the things here at Suger Coat It. Blogging since 1901; I love a casual ootd, taking photos, and writing about things that irk or inspire me. I love wine and cheese, long days at the beach and spending time with my family. I make stuff for the internet over at Chalkboard Digital. You know, living the sweet life.
Nothing worse than knowing you’re going to get sick because of someone else. Our office has been like that for a month! Ugh! Hope you’re on the mend good and quick lady xox
I was back on my feet in record time. My voice is still failing me a little but it’s all good.
Very glad to hear it 🙂
Thank you. x
Thank you Emily. x
aww, I hope you feel better soon. This winter has been horrid for colds and flu and general blahness for everyone.
Thank you. It HAS been a horrid year for it.
