So here it is, right on schedule: my yearly Autumn cold. This past week, we suffered through a heat wave before we experienced a sudden shift to cooler…no cold…temperatures. In other words, one moment it was very hot and then the next moment, it was not. I don’t react well to sudden changes in temperatures, so I woke up Thursday morning absolutely exhausted, and then as day progressed, my throat got sore and my nose started to feel stuffy. Needless to say, I have spent most the weekend curled up in bed, not getting any school work done and certainly not working on my own writing. I haven’t even answered the pile of emails that have stacked up in my inbox in the last few days.
The good news is that I’m feeling a bit better today, so hopefully I can tackle all the grading, corresponding, and revising of my own work that is piling up around me!
