Week of September 18, 2011:
Rest: Probably a good idea…
As usual, I caught a cold while I was in Michigan, but strangely enough, it didn’t bother me too much until yesterday. I caught it early in the week but other than a slightly sore throat, I felt fine. I suspect, though, that Tuesday’s long day of travel set the scene for the cold to move in and try to take me down. So yesterday and today I’ve been taking it a bit easy, and I’m grateful that I have tomorrow off from work. I will use that time to kick my cold’s butt! Also, for the first time since January, I’m getting a haircut! I need one desperately, but of course, my hair looks much better today because it knows it’s in trouble. I’m not falling for your tricks, hair! You are getting sheared into shape, no matter how good you look today!
I’m bummed to be sick right now, because the weather has been pretty nice in Texas this week, and I’d like to be outside enjoying it. Instead, I’m spending too much time on Get Off My Internets (which I love—thank you, Chrissy!) and vowing to return to a nice healthy routine ASAP. But Michigan, oh man. What a great week. I’m so happy I went and so blessed with great family and friends. It was hard to return to Texas, not just because of the traveling itself, but because in the fall, the Midwest is where I want to be. I’ll take Texas in the winter and spring and Michigan in the summer and fall. Maybe I’ll be a migrating bird when I grow up.
Happy Friday, everyone!
PS That baby up there didn’t give me a cold, but his sister probably did. It wasn’t really her fault. And it’s a small price to pay for love.
