did not go exactly as planned.
It started fine, 08:00 call, which is the last of the sort for now. Coffee and breakfast, which is somewhat normal. On the way to work I stopped at the hospital and got my flu shot. As you know, I am volunteering with SACVAP. We are actually considered hospital staff, volunteer staff, but staff none the less. The State of New York made it law that all Health Care Workers must get a flu shot and the H1N1 when it comes out. The Hospital determined we qualified, so it was either get the shot or not volunteer. I got the shot and will get the H1N1, towards the end of my grace period when that happens. I know there are a lot of people that feel it is a violation of their personal rights and are refusing. I do not care for the idea of getting the shot, I've always preferred to let my body fight things off but I weighed the options and chose that volunteering was more important to me.
Anyway, I was fine a good chunk of the morning and then I started to get the joint ache, minor chills, etc. I know that I am not coming down with a full case of the flu but it was still very distracting. Finally, I couldn't focus and generally felt like ass, so I gave up and came home. It's not like I won't have the hours this week. Once home I had a 2 hour nap complete with kitties and a nice bowl of soup. I'm feeling much better and will likely be back on top tomorrow, just not how I expected my day to go. For the H1N1 I think I'll see about going in the afternoon and just sleep it off.
Now it's time for a nice bath and perhaps NCIS.
