So, I've had this wretched cold/flu/whatever thing for a week now, and I'm pretty well ready to be over it. I'm so not good at being sick. I hate being sick more than anything! Ugh. Everyone teased me after my knee surgery that I couldn't stay down---my husband couldn't believe that I was still busier than he was!
This cold is kicking my butt, though. I started getting sick last Saturday, which was the worst possible time: I had three tests, one 20-page paper, a presentation, a bunch of stuff for work and a full load of Pilates classes! Well, I've made it through everything, but my Fourth of July sucked royally: I just slept all day, then tried to study for my math test while everyone else went to watch fireworks. Yesterday was just the bare minimum: taught Pilates at 5:00 am, went to work for a couple of hours, took my math final, worked a little more, dropped of a FedEx, then helped my husband install my new (woohoo!) Cadillac Tower at the studio.
I slept for a while, but it was really too hot to sleep. That's the other problem with being sick in the summer: the normal remedies like hot baths, hot tea, and down comforters aren't exactly summer-friendly. Bleh. So we got up and went to Driggs to see the Clumbsy Lovers. They were doing an outdoor concert last night and it was super-fun. People up there breed like rabbits, though! I can't believe how many kids, babies and pregnant women we saw. Holy cow!
So today I taught a private lesson and then I'm taking the rest of the day off. My husband went kayaking with his friend, and I'm going to catch up on some knitting (almost have my Scoop du Jour finished!), some shopping, and finally getting my closet organized. I'm also going to try to not talk too much...afraid I might lose my voice!
Oh, and I'm getting stuff ready for the August Fire Sale, too. I'm thinking of making some batches of soap and lip balm for it---I used to have a little skin care company, and in the last six months I've had seven or eight people request stuff again. Wow!
