Here lately I have noticed that every single time I get on an airplane to come home, I get off and get sick.  It happened after my trip in the spring, after AWA the end of October, and now.  Maybe it’s because I am rundown from all the vacation activities?  I just know that when I am sitting in the cabin, listening to the chorus of sneezing, snuffling, coughing, and throat clearing, that about 48 hours later, I am going to be sick.    I do everything I can to avoid it, take care of myself when I get home, dress warmly, pamper myself, catch up on my sleep, but here I am again, running a fever and coughing a lung out, losing my voice and getting stink eyes from my coworkers who kindly don’t say anything because they know I am out of leave for this year and have to come in no matter how I feel.  I spray Lysol around and keep using hand sanitizer and stay ensconced in my cubicle as much as possible. 

Two things have me concerned – I don’t want to make my granddaughters ill by seeing them while I’m contagious and it’s especially crucial to get better in just five days – four if I want to make it to Christmas Eve services with my family. 

Meanwhile I’m drinking lots of fluids, putting herbal ginger patches on aching joints,  mainlining DayQuill, NyQuill, and Mucinex, and keeping the heater under my desk going
