Sick. And spring flowers

Aaaand now I’m sick. Markus was completely knocked out for most of last week from a massive cold, and now I have caught it from him. Great. I don’t normally stay in bed when I’m sick, regardless of disease I will drag myself into the living room and curl up on the couch instead, but not now. I actually spent a whole day in bed. Says something about how bad it is…

New job seem really great though! Everyone’s super nice and friendly!
Due to hiring several new people in recent months they have some re-arranging to do regarding where everyone is sitting. New desks have been ordered for us newbies but they haven’t arrived yet. I have a temporary work station (with a huge, scary Mac computer. Think I’ll try bribing it with pretty desktop backgrounds so it starts liking me) at the end of a hallway with two other girls, but soon I’ll get a real office to share with the web developer guy. He’s a metalhead like me so I think it’ll be great. The boss said something about our office going to be the Rock n’ Roll Room. :P

Gonna go rest again, but before I do, here’s a pic I took a while ago of a little family of Coltfoots – the first flowers of 2012! This proves it’s spring in the North at last. :)

    Get to feeling better, Karin. It is no fun to be sick. Go to the doctor if you don’t get to feeling better.

    I am glad you are enjoying your new job.

    Haha what’s so scary about the mac workstation? It can be your friend!! :P Anyway, I hope you feel better soon! I’m like you… I hate staying in bed when I’m sick, so I know how it is!!

    Oh, get well soon. :) I hate staying in bed when I’m sick too. It makes me weaker. :P I need to move even if I’m sick (although I know I’m not allowed to do that) :)
    It is good to hear (or read) that you’re having a great time with your new job. :)

    ‘Grats on the job! Even more ‘grats when you get that chair. ;)

    My sympathies for the sick. Being stuck in bed while sick is a double-dose of suck. :

    I hope you get better! I remember being so sick that I stayed in bed all day. You’re right, it doesn’t happen that often, thank goodness!

    That’s great that your new job is going well so far! Sounds like a fun place to work.

    Sorry to hear that you’re sick =( I hope you feel better soon!

    I’m glad that your new job is going well though! Not having your desk yet reminds me of my first day at work. Instead of waiting for a new desk, I had to wait for a computer because they totally forgot to order it for me, haha. I wasn’t very productive that day XD;;
