Despite the fact that I published two posts this week, I actually wrote zero (thank goodness for inspiration on airplanes). From Saturday – Wednesday, I barely peeled myself off the couch, because I had the freaking flu – again! It started with sore muscles and a sore throat, turned into sore skin and a fever, and is slowly finishing with a nasty cough, the “sexy” sick voice and plugged ears. Good times, I tell ya (and not exactly how I wanted to spend my first weekend in Victoria).
Getting sick again got me thinking about my stance on the flu shot. I’ll be honest: I don’t get them – ever. I think it’s really weird to inject something into your body that hasn’t been tested to see how it will affect you 20, 40 or 60 years down the line. Am I nuts? Maybe! But getting the flu twice in two months certainly got me thinking. Maybe I should start getting the flu shot. Do you!? Why or why not? I’d love your thoughts on this.
The low of my week was missing all of my coffee dates and my hair appointment on the weekend. Curse you, flu!
The high of my week was getting paired up with my high school mentee through the YWCA Metro Vancouver’s High School Mentorship program. I can’t wait to meet her later this month!
The best money I spent was $0. I didn’t leave the house, remember?
My plans this weekend include going up island to visit friends, getting my hair done (for real this time) and helping my girlfriend register for wedding gifts! Fun!
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
