Which I did. As soon as I could muster up the energy to get off the sofa and grab my laptop to email my students.
So, here I sit on the sofa (day 2) awaiting the only appointment remaining at my doctor’s office - 6:00 this evening with a doctor that’s not my own. No complaints - I’m glad I can be seen.
Meanwhile, the day stretches out before me, and here are some of my random thoughts.
- I made the right decision canceling classes. No one wants me breathing on them. But, it’s so early in the semester! Will I catch up?
- I feel better than yesterday. I think.
- Is it bad if I just stay here under the blanket on the sofa all day?
- Pretty sure this is just an upper respiratory infection. Is it even worth a doctor visit?
- I’m glad Steve took the day off. It’s nice not being alone when I am sick.
- Can I write today, or will whatever I put on the page be nonsensical?
- I’m bored.
- How can I be bored? This is the kind of day I long for - the whole day to do whatever I want. If I only had the energy.
- I think I’ll take a nap.
- Should I try to grade some papers?
- Well, this is one way to meet my February reading goal.
- Maybe I should watch the Impeachment hearings. Nah. Pretty sure I know how they’re gonna turn out.
This is definitely an improvement over yesterday when my mind was in the same molasses-like state as my body.
It’s not so bad staying home. I will get caught up, right?
I think I’ll take a nap.
