This has been an absolutely cruddy week. I returned home from Iowa on Sunday, got sick on Monday with an upper respiratory infection and have been feeling lousy ever since. I went to the doctor and he gave me "the works"--antibiotic, steroid shot, cough medicine, nose spray--all of which helped the infection but have made me so sleepy I feel like I'm living in a parallel universe. This is absolutely the strangest feeling, like I'm walking around in my sleep, seeing the world through fuzzy glasses. My cats are annoyed with me; I have not encouraged them to play with me. The one thing I managed to get done on schedule was water my grass. I'm having some planting done and I'm following orders to water every day--we're in the midst of a drought. I spent most of the week dozing, reading, watching TV shows that did not require thinking. I hate being this way, behind on everything but without enough energy to care. Is that one year older making a difference? I hope not. Hopefully, I'll be my usual cheery self in a few days.
