Oh, Hey

It's been awhile! I know I've never been one to post super routinely, but I think this is probably the longest I've gone without writing for quite some time. It's been a hell of an eleven days, that's for sure. A week and a half ago I woke up with a fever of 102 and after throwing back some DayQuil went to work. Long story short, I had the flu (yes, I had the shot) and ended up working way too hard at work and at home and ended up completely miserable. I went to urgent care the other night after nine days straight of a low-grade fever and was sent home with the diagnosis of the flu and instructions to rest and come in earlier next time for TamiFlu. Luckily they said I was no longer contagious and, to my knowing, no one else was infected by my inability to stay home and quarantine myself (knock on wood).  Throw a weekend of solo-parenting, a night of conferences at work, and horrible sleep into the mix and things were made even worse. I will say that everyone from my son to husband to students to colleagues have been beyond understanding of this sort of fog and exhaustion I've been living in. 

Today I finally felt a tiny bit better and was actually motivated to do crazy things like wash more than one load of laundry and take a ten minute walk around the block. The lack of exercise and productivity has really started to get to me mentally, but I know that I need to ease back into my normal routine or else I will relapse. April is set to be a fun, busy month, so I really need to pace myself. 

So, that's where I've been and what I've been doing. I should be back with Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts and other posts this week!
