Allergic to Work?

I was home a lot of last week with a sick little kid. That's a drag. But I managed to keep my own health pretty much intact.

That is, until I got myself together to come in here this morning. Suddenly my nose is stuffy, my body aches and I have a headache I can't shake. I've noticed that I'm starting to dread coming in to work. Every day, I'm going over in my mind the list of things that I have going on at home (most notably finishing the re-write of my book) that I'm missing out on by coming into a 9-5 job. This is a dangerous attitude, I know. I'm beating myself up for it because it makes me feel as if I'm shortchanging myself and my boss, who's a great guy and deserves the best I can give.

Well, I guess I should probably start acting like I'm actually here.
