And on the Sixth Day...

I am finally feeling somewhat over this flu. Five Whole Days of being sick. On the fifth day, the fever was gone, but I felt like I'd been run over by a bus several times, and wasn't able to do much of anything. The previous four days are a fog of Nyquil, tea, canned fruit and diet ginger ale.

Today I hope to just clean the damn house. Deep beneath the foggy awareness of my sick waking hours, there was this other awareness of some examination I was idly undertaking, a sort of spiritual taking stock of where I am in my life right now. Being stuck on the couch for all that time will encourage such things, I suppose. On one level, I hate that I lost a week of my life, but on another level, I don't feel it was wasted. I thought through a lot of things.

Right now, it's time to Clean House. Get an early start on Spring.

Looks like we had pretty much the same life for the past week, except that I was in denial about mine. I force fed myself Vitamin C and Oscillococcinum all week to chase the bug away, but it finally TKO'd me yesterday. Hope you feel better. Being sick SUCKS!

Sounds like you made the most of the down-time.
