Sick for the Holidays

home town
Well, unfortunate news everyone. I flew to California on Tuesday and immediately got sick the next today. Today I have been completely useless. Just lying on the couch, in an out of consciousness, coughing up my lungs, you know, the horribly sick usuals. 
I failed to notice, until my day of flying out, that my flight had a layover in Portland.  Now the silly thing about that is that it only takes 25 minutes to fly from Seattle to Portland.  It is basically a pointless layover.  So I was a little frustrated that my usual 2 and a half hours of travel time turned into leaving my house in Seattle at 3:30 and arriving in California at 11pm.  A friend was flying in at midnight so my sister and I waited for him to give him a ride.  So we got home by 2am.  Too long of a traveling day.
I think the combo of everyone I live with in Seattle being sick + my boyfriend being sick + too much exhausting travel time + exhaustion from Holiday sales work + coming home to find my entire family was sick with colds and bronchitis = duh I was going to get sick.  Quite unfortunate.
I am super groggy and out of it so I will keep this post short, but please do pray that I get well asap.  I had planned on doing design work until Christmas day and taking off Dec 25-29 to have a real vacation with family and friends.  But I have been so sick and out of it that it has been impossible for me to focus on my work, and I really need the days after Christmas to be free and enjoyable with friends and family, not bogged down with work.  I love my work, but everyone needs a little break for the Holidays :)
Alright, back to coughing up my lungs.  No fun.  Pray for me friends!  Thank you!
ps, so glad I proof read this.  My spelling skillz drop by about 50% when I'm sick, ha!
