Cough, headache, sinus pain, fatigue…normal how you feel when you’re sick kind of feelings. I have been working fairly full days, cooking and cleaning up after meals, but not exercising or caring for my skin, not keeping up with deliveries or picking up in the living room. I feel as though I’m living in squalor.

Okay, I am living in squalor.

And though I am working close to eight hours a day, I am completing two or three blog posts, not four. Granted, I’ve had lots of requests for stuff from clients, but still. I’m not being productive.

I am feeling sorry for myself.

Lent begins today, so suffering is appropriate. I am tired of being sick, though. In my experience, that’s a sign that I’m starting to recover.
