*cough* *cough*

For the first time in over five years, I called in sick to work.

Yesterday and Today.

Yesterday, I was truly ill - vomited in the shower, bad aches all day, really sore throat, super tired....slept all afternoon and vegged in front of the TV all night.

Today, however, I feel much better (still sore throat, slightly achy), but feel so good about having a whole weekday off during the holiday season to get things done that I just continued my 'ill' days.

I don't feel guilty about this - I work over 40 hours per week on the average, I'm salaried, and I have a great work ethic most of the time.

Question:

Do you feel guilty for not being at work when borderline 'sick'?

Do you consider it 'cheating' if you clean your house and run errands while taking a sick day?

Would you rather a coworker come into the workplace and work, or stay home and not risk contaminating the entire office?

Should I organize my closets this afternoon or finish my Christmas shopping?
