Week in Review

Week in Review (March 11, 2016)


I’ve been sick all week.

I tried to fight through it over the weekend, but finally went to the doctor on Monday morning and got my hands on some antibiotics. My first ever sinus infection. I tried to sleep, but I have a toddler and kids hate to see adults resting. There were also five people in my house all day on Tuesday, so I wasn’t really able to relax.

I came back to work on Wednesday, but am still all stuffed up. I dream about lying in bed and going to sleep…or dying. Either one. Now I have a cold sore on my lip and a soreness on the inside of my nose from blowing and wiping it all week. I’m like George Clooney with a blog.

Every winter, I feel like I hear people say, “I don’t ever remember this many people being sick.” Are we sicker than ever? A Google search returns mixed results (thanks a lot, Internet) but it feels like it, doesn’t it? I know I get sick more now than I used to, but (a) I’m older, (b) I’m in the best shape, and (c) I have a kid that finds it funny to sneeze and cough on me, so I’m not sure that’s an apt comparison.

My head hurts.

Here’s what I wrote this week:


Oh, I am very weary, Though tears no longer flow; My eyes are tired of weeping, My heart is sick of woe.

Anne Brontë

Stay healthy, y’all.
