Admitting defeat

Something I'm not good at.

But here I am, admitting defeat. I am sick. Not horribly so but enough that I'm willing to stay home from my responsibilities at church this evening. I HATE doing that. I should be there - not that I think the program can't run without me...I just know that I have responsibilities and should be there. But I am not feeling well and I need to head this off before it sidelines me. I can't afford to be sidelined until AFTER March 20th.

I took a 2.5 hour nap (not really a "nap"...more of a "sleep") this afternoon and that seems to have helped a bit but I'm still feeling crummy so I'm admitting defeat, brewing some tea, making some soup, and staying home.

I hate being sick. I'm no good at it. However, given the amount of stress I've been under for the past 9 months or so, this should have happened a LONG time ago. So I'm due. Yay.

Don't feel bad about opting out of commitments when you're sick. It would be a disservice were you to attend and share the "icks" with everyone. I for one, admire those who know when to stay home- I'm sure others do as well. :) It is tough letting go and admitting defeat to colds though, so I hear what you are saying. Hope you feel better soon!
