Stuffy and slow

I have a fairly chronic amount of nasal congestion. It isn't unusual for me to half wake up in order to roll over and let my sinuses drain to the other side for a while.

When I awoke today, however, I had more than the usual. So I'm at work and a little miserable. Not a lot miserable, but a little. Thanks to the "performance plan" I'm on, I'm also not able to go home sick. Have to have perfect attendance for 90 days (that is, until May 17, 90 days from the notice). I figure I'll go sneeze around my manager and get her sick.

I stopped by Byerly's on the way home in hopes of picking up some wasabi peanuts to snack on. Figured they'd help keep the snot at bay. No such luck. I settled for a bag of M&Ms and a homeopathic cold remedy.

In the meantime, we're strangely slow with the work tonight. After having two days of fairly constant work, this feels quite odd. Must be the mid-week lull.
