It seems that my lack of sleep last week and constant switching from normal to vampire hours is catching up with me. I'm now fighting some kind of crud. I basically feel okay, but I can tell I've got a low-grade fever, and my eyes are burning and my throat is a little sore. Not good.
So the tentative plans I had made for this weekend won't be happening - I was planning to go skiing with Brad, but it doesn't make sense for me to go now if I'm not feeling great. Plus once I get my tax refund I'll be better able to handle the cost of the trip. He goes up there all the time, so I'm sure I'll be able to join him next time.
As for Mike, I don't even know if I'll see him this weekend - he'll be doing his taxes. This is just as well since I plan to get copious amounts of sleep and get myself healthy again as soon as possible.
I slept today, but woke up about 4:30 after 6 hours of sleep. Would have liked to have slept more, but just couldn't. Anne called me about 6:30 and asked if I wanted to hang out and have dinner, and when I told her I didn't feel too good she actually made me dinner and brought it to me. Such a good friend! We had rice pasta with tomato sauce and she put in the vegetables that were left over from last night. Good stuff!
After she left, I tried to nap again, but couldn't sleep - Mike called to bring back a videotape, so he came over for about 60 seconds, and then left when he saw I was trying to rest.
Got this email from my dad tonight - I guess it's been longer than I thought since I talked with him!

Pretty funny! I filled in the blanks and sent it back to him, and will call him this weekend (since I don't seem to be doing anything else!) to catch him up on what's going on.
