A good old-fashioned sick day

By Katharine Swan On Friday, November 10, 2006 At 5:30 PM


I didn't do any work today - instead I had what you might call a good old-fashioned sick day. I got up, ate breakfast, checked email, took a hot bath (once the medicine kicked in and I could breathe out of at least one nostril), ate soup for lunch, and then took a 2-hour nap.

I didn't really feel any better today than I did yesterday. In fact, I think I felt worse, probably because it took me so long to get to sleep last night - every time I was almost asleep, my nose plugged up and I couldn't breathe at all. I can't breathe through my mouth (it really bothers me), so I had to keep blowing my nose.

Fortunately, I don't have any very pressing deadlines right this minute, so I am going to declare my weekend officially started - and work on my novel until the new, stronger medicine Michael bought for me kicks in and knocks me out.
