It's astonishing how debiliating a cold it. Take a few sniffles, a runny nose and a sore throat and suddenly, I'm out. I find it difficult to focus and even more difficult to take life as it comes. Everything irritates me and as a result, I know I become irritating. A couple of emails came in yesterday that I knew if I responded then and there, I'd end up hurting already fragile relationships. I have acheived a certain level of maturity in that I clicked off email and went to the couch to watch an episode of 'Lost'.
This morning, after a long and sweaty night of sleep, I feel marginally better and the world looks slightly brighter. This is good as I have to travel today to do training Thursday and Friday, then on Sunday we make a long trip to the Maritimes where we'll be working for several days. I want to be able to enjoy the drive and be fully engaged with what I'm doing. Right now, though, it still seems like a mammoth amount of work. However as I get better the mountain will once again become a molehill.
Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with a regular blog post. It's hard to have much to write about when the extent of one's day is being tired from napping. See you then.
