Anybody hear laughing?

I had a whole list of things I was going to do on this, my last week of maternity leave. I was going to catch up on laundry. I was going to get passport pictures for Barak and Marika, and file their passport applications. I was going to return the too-small Shabbos coat I bought Abba last week, and finish cleaning out the storage space in the basement.

Instead, I've had strep since Sunday, complete with raging fever and, you know, the attendant full-body misery. Which also has meant that I've been reluctant to have Marika in bed with me--I'm too out of it, and I'm so cold I want a big pile of blankets. She is not sympathetic to this, and has been waking up every 20 minutes or so all. night. long.

So I've done nothing. Except go to the doctor today, finally, to get antibiotics.

Bleah.

You poor, poor thing. I'm glad you did go to the doc, even if you could do nothing else. I hope you can manage to get some rest, over Marika's indignance at your cruelty in excluding her from a potentially deadly situation. Gute Besserung... and fast, too.

Oy! I hope you're feeling better already!
