The sweater’s coming along very nicely.

I’ve been thinking about writing a post about my energy level over the past few days. I’m still making occasional forays into Christmas leftovers, from cheese and crackers to cookies from the freezer to the amazingly addictive cinnamon popcorn #2 daughter brought down from the Big City. I figured these doses of salt and sugar might have been making me feel a bit sluggish.

Then today I got up feeling fine, got to work, and gradually became absolutely miserable as I coughed and sneezed and sniffled and dripped.

Then came headache, sore throat, and general malaise. I feel awful. Fish and salad for dinner and then I’m going to go to bed. If I don’t die in the night, I may be better in the morning.

Did I get sick because of Ol’ Gator cheddar on Triscuits and jam thumbprints or was my low energy level the effect of a cold coming on? I’m thinking seriously of finishing up the ginger ale, too, with or without cranberry gin fizz solution.
