I spent a majority of the day in the guest bedroom propped up on pillows, reading, talking to the dogs, watching many different You Tube videos of varied interests, and listening to the constant patter of rain.
The stomach cramps of the past several days alternated from mild to uncomfortable, and the sinus pressure was only semi-relieved with sinus flushes, some inhaled steam, and guaifenesin.
I decided I needed to flee my two day enclosure, aka ”cabin fever,” for some Mexican food. It was an easy transit and I was only gone from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM, even with a connection each way and on a reduced weekend schedule.
The remainder of today was spent in either the guest bedroom or my study next door, trying to complete research while working through less than perfect comfort.
The rain has been steady and nonstop since yesterday afternoon and is expected to continue through Monday.
I did not get my adventure-fix which is disappointing.
Alas, it’s 10:40 PM Saturday evening and I’m snuggled under a blanket with Chief and Bailey snuggling on one side of the enormous bed and Harrigan buried under the covers right next to me. Erma is on Chief’s doggie bed, her preferred slumber location.
Tomorrow is back to my four day teaching schedule.
