3:41 PM: creeps along at this pretty pace
still sick, even after spending almost all thursday in bed, which was a miserable period of being both hot and cold and restless and clammy.
fortunately, i feel like i've been getting enough sleep, drinking enough water, and not pushing myself too hard (it may help that i have next week off of work thanks to gerrie's presence). but i was well enough friday to totter to calligraphy class and then orchestrate the time michael, sven & i spent with gerrie. after class we went to chez machin, pix and ended up at the butte household, though afterwards i dropped michael & gerrie off at the 122nd max station. and then i immediately went to bed.
yesterday we all went to powell's, the tibet kitchen, and the lovely japanese gardens. we picked up an oasis pizza and headed back to gerrie's room, and then michaelmas went home to do some prep for a game today, and sven stayed for a massage. after he stopped flopping in ecstacy (thanks, gerrie!), i took him home, cleaned up after the cat, and immediately went to bed.
so i'd expect to be better today, but i've still got phlegm and a slight fuzzy edge to my head. this afternoon, denique dropped off the plants i ordered for her swim team fundraiser, and then it immediately hailed.
