Illin'
I have a cold.... I started coming down with it sunday night. I thought for awhile my throat was hurting because my house was so stuffy (from being inhabited by only cats all week). Then it occurred to me that a stuffy house doesn't really lead to a sore throat, and isn't quite so painful.

Today it's my nose that's stuffy, not my house, and my throat is still sore -- but it's not an awful cold, just an icky one. I got lots of sleep last night, and I'm about to pop out to CVS for some orange juice and whatnot.

Yesterday I had to remind myself that the rule is "leave the house once a day". The danger of my working from home is becoming a hermit and never seeing the outdoors, doubly so when I'm not feeling well. I was feeling lethargic and sick last night, and didn't want to do anything, but rules are rules. I stepped onto the porch and thought, "There, I've left the house!" But I knew that was cheating, so I proceeded around the block anyway. Then I went to bed.

Right now I'm on my lunchbreak from work, so it's off to the drugstore with me. This means I'll see the outdoors and get an errand done. Amazing!

With luck I'll be all better by the weekend. I have fun up-north plans, and I'm looking forward to them.

Well not quite as bad as that, I've been healthy for a couple of months....

I think this might be an airplane-cold -- similar yet different from a child-cold.
