Trying Not to Get Sick
I'm taking a sick day today. Well, except for the work I have to do-two photoshoots to work on and a contract knitting piece to get finished and into the mail-fortunately none of those is terribly physical. I did choose not to go to piano lessons, and there is nothing firm on the calendar for this afternoon or evening, so hopefully I can rest my way clear of whatever my swollen lymph nodes and inability to stay awake for longer than two hours at a stretch are trying to fight off. The hot lymph nodes are my body's usual way of indicating elevated immune system activity, so I'm not too worried. No fever, no sore throat, so I'm not thinking about flu yet. I'm just super-tired and feel like staying in bed. All day. So I'm pretty much going to. I really don't want to drop out of the race on Saturday (Baltimore Half-Marathon), so I'm also trying to keep eating and drinking (chocolate will keep my calories up, right?), and hopefully by tomorrow or Thursday I'll be past this and feel okay. Uff. I guess I'll be able to finally watch all the episodes of Ken Burns' National Parks series.
