Sick and tired but mostly sick

I'm at home today with a bad cold. The cold got gradually worse yesterday and last night. I don't want to do much of anything but rest.

I missed my graduate student's practice talk for her defense today. I hope to go over it with her tomorrow. She defends on Thursday. She's worked very hard, and I must get up and about to have a review of what she is going to say.

I don't like being sick and am not a very good patient. I want to be doing something but know that if I don't take care of myself, the entire week will be shot.

I wish that I could make my homegroup meeting tonight, but I'm going to get more rest, have some soup and drink lots of fluids.

I know that this cold just has to run it's course.


  1. Nothing else you can do but allow the cold to run its course.

  2. The way I figure it is God found a way to get you to slow down for a bit.

  3. I like to be sick because it forces me to take a break and let other people care for me. It's the only time I surrender to the care of others.

  4. like they say, a cold medicated takes 7 days to get better, unmedicated it takes a week... get well soon!


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
