In Kris Rusch’s Freelancer’s Survival Guide, there’s a great guideline for when to take sick days. If your Toughest Boss Ever would have said, “Go home, you’re sick,” then take the day.
Well, my Toughest Boss Ever is me. I had the cough from hell, which then set off the backache from hell. Anatomical details: don’t tick off your iliopsoas. It has no sense of humor, and since it fills your pelvic bones it will give you the backache of your life, with occasional twinges that make you scream.
So, very horizontal today. Everything that requires major brainpower is on hold. I am getting caught up on my reading and doing occasional chat on Twitter.
And that’s it.
Can’t wait to go back to work.
