an infinite number of coughs

i was hoping to go to the infinite number of sounds show tonight at bubba's, but that's not going to happen. i feel too sick... i probably shouldn't be at work right now either. but due to weird timing, i can't tell for sure whether i'm suffering an allergy attack or some kind of infection. we had a significant climate shift the other day, as it suddenly got very warm after a cool and rainy spell. so it's quite plausible that a bunch of pollen was released recently and hit me yesterday. but at the same time, barry and ian have been sick for the past few days, so it's likely i caught whatever they have. i never used to get sick before i lived with a small child. they're like germ magnets, i tell ya.

my symptoms are primarily restricted to the tiny area between my sinuses and my adam's apple: congestion and periodic coughing fits. but today i also feel very tired and lethargic, which could be a symptom of my sickness or just a result of the fact that i woke up a good 4-5x in the middle of the night last night so i could cough for a minute.

i also had a dentist appt this morning... just a routine cleaning. but they charge you if you try to cancel less than 24 hours in advance, which is at least part of why i bothered to come in today. but it also means i have to work later than usual tonight, and probably for the rest of the week, to make up the extra hours.

so no INS for me, and not much energy for blogging or writing emails or the like. feh. i'd really like a nap, but that's not going to happen this afternoon unless i go home sick.
