I spent a day home with my daughter Wednesday, wisely deciding that a day’s rest will make an exhausted child with a sore throat better. It did, but I didn’t rest at all though, what with nursing a sick child, doing lots of extra household chores and still putting in hours of work at the computer.
Today I’m paying. Last week’s cold is back with a vengeance. Yesterday’s tiredness is replaced by a runny nose and a dizzy head and eyes that will hardly open and ears that feel a bit strange.
I’m going to bed.
