My busy week (and weekend) are catching up to me…and it seems I’ve caught the sickness that Allen got over the weekend.
Last night I went sleep with a fever and did not sleep well. I was hot, then cold, then hot. My fever subsided and came back a few times. And I woke up this morning with a terrible cough and sore throat. What’s to blame? Not really sure. I think it might be allergies but the fever tells me otherwise. Hoping it goes away by tomorrow!
Sickness-1, Elise-0. That’s the current score as I do my best to tackle this ridiculous week. Here’s what’s on the to-do list:
Tuesday’s Poli Sci Quiz Comm Law Take-home Exam due Wednesday
- Chemistry exam Thursday
- Thursday’s Poli Sci Quiz
- March bulletin boards due Friday
- Religious Studies respons due Friday
I’m checking things off! And prepared to battle through to the end. My current sickness-fighting regime includes lots of medicine, liquids, cough drops/hard candy to keep my cough at bay and REST.
I am not running for the rest of the week because I really want to run my long run on Saturday. I’m taking Mark Remy’s advice and taking 4 days off! I think this is especially important because this is in my chest.
So what do I eat when I am sick? Not much. I drink lots of tea:
Lots of toast:
And of course, soup:
I’m surviving over here and determined to make it through this week! Tonight I have a band concert (which I am probably at while you are reading this because I wrote it earlier) and afterward I plan to crash onto my bed.
