General Update  
So, having posted nothing of substance in awhile, here is a general update.

Since making my decisions, most of my free time has been spent on cleaning, organizing, purging, selling, and otherwise trying to get physical things in order. It seems to be going well. The social and psychological re-organization and re-prioritizing will likely take longer, but some events there are giving me clarity on that count too.

At the beginning of October, I contracted a really lovely cold, probably in part due to running myself ragged with the house stuff. It began as just an obnoxious body aches/fatigue/drippiness. I had hoped to do some multi-tasking and hit a few things that weekend, but I ended up only going to the Newbie Event in Turm an dem Sea since I was committed to teaching three classes there. mightyjesse , Miss Em and splott came with, so it was a pleasant enough drive, but I was donedonedone by the time we got home. Sunday I spent largely on the couch watching Sol embroider. She kindly drove to General Meeting and back, but that was really all I had. The cold sadly got worse rather than better and I missed work on Tuesday and many of my plans for the middle of the week.

I had been asked to judge an A&S display at Crown so on Friday gflower  and I drove out. It was a nice drive out and sitting in the hot tub at the end of the drive was a fabulous reward. I was feeling largely better, but my cold had made my throat so raw that eating and drinking were sort of dicey... and coughing was a seriously special experience. I could cough out, but then not breathe in. Not Fun. Breathing in quickly, laughing, talking loudly, or yawning would set off coughing spells that then proceeded to choking and sputtering as I struggled to breathe. :/ I no longer had a fever and was not drippy, so I don't think I was contagious, but I was careful to touch as few people as possible. I busied myself with making whipcording kits (25 of them!) and socializing with some folks, but didn't do terribly much. A lot of the conversations were exhausting enough to make that enough of an effort anyway. At least the A&S judging went well and easily. More time in the hot tub Saturday made staying the second night worthwhile.

I should have spent today on house stuff, but instead have been trying to catch up on email and other online tasks. Maybe tomorrow will be more successful.

Take the time to just relax and get well. Let others take care of you for a change.

Hot tubs are a perfect remedy for the cold. Boil it out of ya! Almost as good as an old fashion sauna.

Take care of you!
