Counting blessings

I was thinking a moment ago that my shoulders hurt. Only they don't.

There is an ache at the top of both of my arms from having run the snow blower both yesterday and the day before to clear back to back storms. However nothing can be said to hurt, not when an acquaintance is in the hospital in 500 miles away and she's on really cool pain killers, only not so cool they are actually handling her pain.

I took a whopping three days of sick time last year, and after the last two (taken together with some comp time because of a cold which dogged me for 10 days), a co-worker mentioned that I must really been sick. (I didn't realize I acted that hard core.) For me, I was. But in the grand scheme of things, it wasn't dirt.

And I had paid sick time to take. Enough said.
