No! I'm Not Dead

This is my first post in 11 days. The past two weeks have been busy. When I say busy, imagine running around your house with your hair on fire, while juggling lemons and having a viral infection. That's how busy these last 11 days have been. Let's go back to the beginning of the 11 days. Two week ago today, I went to work feeling ok. I woke up and my throat felt a little scratchy. Northern California has been experiencing crazy weather. It's extremely dry but everything is coming into bloom. I thought, ok it could just be allergies. As the day went on it started to feel like I was swallowing razor blades. I was sweating and hot (which I am NEVER). I get home at the end of the evening and lay down. The next day I woke up feeling so awful. So bad that I called into work for the first time ever. I've been at my new job for 9 months and I took my first sick day. Did I mention that I'm responsible for the Employee Recognition and Awards program? Well I am. I literally do the entire program. I get the nominations, make the programs, get the nominations scored, do the script... everything. Well the awards ceremony was in 48 hours.

So there I am laying in bed with a fever that won't break and water felt like it was going down like a razor blade. So I use my fancy insurance card and get in to see the doctor. Who did absolutely nothing for me except tell me to take ibuprofen and cough drops. Gee thanks Doc! So the next day goes by and I feel no better. I called in a second day in a row. On the third day, the day of the awards I knew I had to go in. I went in for 3 hours, set up and had to go home. I couldn't make it. It was bad. The weekend finally came and I still felt rough. Guess what weekend it was? The Britney Spears/ Mayweather fight weekend in Vegas.

After much debate we went ahead. Everything was booked. We had to go or we would just watch money go down the drain. An hour after we get into Vegas, Britney freaking cancels the concert. So we did the next best thing... we went to the Elvis Experience Show!
 
We also went the Elvis Experience which houses a lot of his personal artifacts. I was in hog heaven. Beezy even started to get into it!




We also went to the fight weigh in. We also saw a ton of celebrities...




 

While we were there we also hit up M&M World....

The entire trip, I couldn't breath out of my nose. I was freezing in the heat. I was also coughing up a storm. But I made it! We had a good time and I was back to work. Now we have been packing up a storm because we are in the last few days before moving. So wish us luck cause we have a LOT to pack!

Wow, you should not have been working. Illnesses take much longer than a couple of days to get over and you needed to take care of your health. Sounds like you're run down with stress and it took ahold.
