I have a cold....

....and I haven't had a cold in a long time. All that wonderful energy amassed last week....pffft. Gone. I'm a walking poster-girl for Mucinex, Tylenol, Puffs, Vitamin C tablets and garlic. And naps.

Teaching is going well, and today is Diss day. OF COURSE it is since I feel like sleeping until Friday. Dammy damn. What timing. But, I think last night may have been the worst of it and I hope these germs decide to leave my lil' body as quickly as they found themselves at home.

I think I can do some Diss work today, though. My Chapter 4 is actually the former second-half of Chapter 3. All together, I realized that is too much material for one chapter, so I separated them. The good news is that I have all the research done because I sat down to write it all out for the recent January Chapter 3 deadline. The bad news is its hard to concentrate today and I'm sleepy. So, if I sit for hours and try to write, it's highly likely that I'll read it on Friday and revise the whole load of loopy prose from today. But, I can do just a little here and a little there at a medium pace---shoot for four new pages instead of fourteen. Get healthy, first. Power-write, second.

In other news, I welcomed three new fish to the tank (for a total of 11), have three tomato plants sprouting (one is almost six inches high!!!) and finally see a flower growing on my peace lily (which hasn't flowered since I bought it 2.5 years ago, although the foliage is beautiful). And, regardless of sneezin' and weezin', life rolls along. Onward!
