I was well enough today to bake my usual Sunday bread (though I did need to rest on the couch for quite awhile after each step – definitely not anywhere NEAR 100% yet). M and I have been enjoying making cinnamon toast from the remains of last week’s loaf – nice and gentle on our recovering tummies.
Gotta go back to work tomorrow despite still being pretty darn weak. (M will stay home with my MIL). I’m so ridiculously far behind on everything now – I was running behind already because of the pneumonia at the beginning of the semester, and I just lost almost another week to this stomach bug, and I just…I don’t even know how to bounce back from this. I don’t think I’m going to, realistically. Gonna have to talk to the advisor about pushing back my plans for defending – but as long as it happens before Aug. 27th, it’ll be ok. Just gotta keep plugging away, at whatever pace I can manage.
I can’t believe it’s February 16th and I have yet to have an actual healthy day in 2014. Dear universe, can I get a break, please?
