--I have spent the last 5 days hoping that I wasn't coming down with a cold. Well, the cold is here. Luckily, so far, it's fairly mild, by which I mean no coughing and no nausea. I can go on with my life.
--However, I'm more aware of my sinuses than I like to be. I'm aware of how fluids flow through our bodies.
--I am feeling like a planet that contains more water than she knew. My head is a vast ocean that only appears to be a solid land mass.
--I'm concentrating on my cold this morning because I have such an intensive week that's underway. Days at work, nights at Vacation Bible School. And it's the last week at school, which means there's a graduation Thursday. On Friday, my spouse and I are driving to Orlando, where he has a Board of Trustees meeting for Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Florida from 9-1. Then we're driving back to be at church for the last night of Vacation Bible School.
--Maybe my cold will be on the wane by Thursday and Friday. Maybe it will be gone completely.
--Today I begin my day at work by meeting with writer friends who are also work colleagues. I don't have much to report, but I do have plans. My online teaching for the rest of the year will be better suited to getting some writing done. I will get that draft of my memoir finished, even though despair has swamped my little boat lately.
