Monday started like any other Monday. Well, except for the government shutdown. Rather than go into the office only to be sent to work offsite at noon, I chose to work from home from the outset. I hadn't felt all that great on Sunday, and by Monday afternoon I recognized that I'd caught some sort of bug.
I'd hoped to stave off any real illness by taking care of myself and going to bed early Monday evening, but Tuesday it was clear that hadn't worked. I slept most of the day and gave no thought to going to class Tuesday evening. That pretty well describes Wednesday and Thursday too. The instructor for the class I usually take Thursday evening is off at some sort of dance competition so I didn't even have to fret over missing that class.
So here it is mid-day Friday. Aside from sleeping, eating, watching some TV, and sleeping some more, I've done basically nothing this week. My temperature fluctuates between normal and a low-grade fever. I never really had the full-on flu, for which I'm thankful, but I'd rather not have been sick at all. I won't be going to class tomorrow on general principles, even if my temperature stabilizes this evening. Maybe I'll get to class Sunday, but probably not; right now I have my sights set on Tuesday evening.
But right now I think I'm gonna sleep for a bit.
