|The fever is back...

The darned virus I caught earlier has re-asserted itself, most likely due to the sudden change from cold weather to high temperatures. I started feeling woozy Tuesday night. It's one of those bugs that you feel at your worst as the day progresses.
Wednesday I left work about 1 hour early because I was feeling ill. The following day I visited the doctor, was prescribed meds (Amoxycillin/clavulanic acid), and a medical certificate granting me two days leave. I've spent much of my time trying to sleep.
This morning I called in to the office with the intention of clearing only the most urgent stuff - things that absolutely MUST be done on the last business day of the month and that only I know how to do. Unhappily my Relationship Manager kept heaping work into my To-do list. He's a good chap normally. I don't think he realised how sick I was (everyone else did), and he was under stress himself from the previous day's work. I didn't get out of there until 12:15pm. I went to bed and woke up at 5:22pm, then suddenly realised that I'd left one of the tasks unfinished. I checked my phone to see if anyone had tried to call me, and the darn phone had turned itself off. That's one bit of bad luck I REALLY didn't need. I turned it on, and a message popped up from the telco saying that someone had tried to call me at 1:22pm. I hope I'm not going to get into trouble over this... I really can't cope with additional problems right now.
