Oh my BARF!!!
Yes, that's what it's been since Saturday night. I thought maybe Erin and I had some kind of food poisoning from the birthday breakfast I made, but Adylynn hasn't gotten anything. Thankfully Jaden also doesn't appear to be sick, but she and I have been taking turns in the bathroom. It's not a pretty sight, nor smell. First the first time in 7 years I'm actually sick enough that I couldn't work. I tried to open the laptop today and get some things done, but after 15 minutes my eyes hurt from eyestrain, and I had to stop to take a trip to vomit in the middle. It wasn't any fun. I'm starting to feel better, and will probably feel good enough to go back to work tomorrow, but the real question is should I. Should I potentially expose all of my teammates to the illness that I have just in time for them to get it for Christmas? I don't want to. This is one of those times that being able to work from home would be excellent. I'm on the upside of my illness (hopefully) and I want to work, but I don't want to get anyone else sick. Working from home tomorrow would allow me to get all of my stuff done without exposing anyone and without costing me a sick day. The other option is to ruin everyone's christmas. I think I like my team too much to do that to them. I'll call in sick again and try talking to my boss about working from home.
