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.
