A Swift Kick and More

By Friday night, I'd come down with a full-fledged cold. I had hoped to avoid it, but since people at work have been sick and my husband had a bad cold, I felt like a sitting duck. Turns out I was right.

So yeah, I got a swift kick. And it's laid me low for two days now. I've watched so much t.v. I want to throw the remote out the window. I don't have any desire to read. I sit there and I stare into space with my mouth open (so I can breathe) and devour M&M's because I can actually taste them.

We'll see how I feel tomorrow. I've got to go to work since I don't have any sick days left, but I have a feeling it's going to be a very loooooong day.

Weirdest thing? Friday night I wanted to write. I booted up the laptop and wrote maybe a paragraph, but couldn't stay focused long enough to do much more.

Ok. I'm going back to the couch. I'm feeling more like reading, so maybe I'll pick up a book or two now.


  1. When you're feeling sick and low, a paragraph is something to be proud of! You've established a jumping-off point...even if you end up scrapping it, when you get back to the writing you won't be starting from scratch (which, for me at least, is the worst. I hope you feel better soon!

  2. I hope you're soon feeling better!

  3. Feel better soon! My weekend didn't net the writing results I'd hoped for either. I got a little done, but with a contractor here making a racket and playing the radio all day Saturday, I couldn't concentrate. Boo.

  4. Sorry to hear you're sick, Melissa :( Spring colds really suck.


I love to hear from you!
