Thanksgiving Week: Ups and Downs

As always, Thanksgiving week had ups and downs.

Monday was great.  My daughter still had school, but I was off, so I wrote about 2700 words.  Then I went to her school and discovered that something was wrong with my foot; every step was painful.

Tuesday I dealt with the pain by walking with a cane all day, which included chaperoning a field trip–a walking field trip–for my daughter’s class.  At the end of the day I sat in my chair and barely rose from it until bedtime.

Wednesday was ok; a day with my daughter is always fun, even with the pain in my foot. Thursday was ok, too.  My in-laws and a friend came for dinner, and it was pleasant.  But that night I came down with a cold.  That was less pleasant.

On Friday the cold was bearable; but made me grumpy as hell all day.  On Saturday it morphed into full-on death plague, and I felt like crap.  On Sunday it got a little better, but still not good.

And today was fine–until my voice cut out in the middle of third period.  Now I’m croaking my way through the day.  Joy.
