Thank you to all those who have wished me a happy new year! I wish the same to all of you, a few months early!
Someone gave me a delightful cold at Coronation (colds take 3-4 days to incubate, this one hit Tuesday night, you do the math), which started at my throat and has been gradually working its way around my upper respiratory system. The only constant is the low-grade fever (highest it's been is about 99.3).
Beware this cold, folks. It crested on Sunday, when the sneezing didn't stop all day/evening, and it was punctuated by lovely crawly pains in my sinuses. I only went out once, to Walgreens to get a new thermometer and some chicken soup. That tired me out enough that though I tried to hang out a bit at Borders (kitty-corner from Walgreens), I couldn't concentrate and had to leave before I sneezed the entire contents of my head on the Paperback Nonfiction section. Imagine ME, leaving a bookstore in defeat! Definitely the low point of my weekend.
I knew before going to bed last night I'd be staying home today. So here I am. Not sneezing anywhere near as much, which is a good sign. But still that slight fever. So I'm not going anywhere soon. For work tomorrow, I reserve judgement.
As for singing in High Holyday services, I did reasonably well in both Rosh Hashanah services; this creeping crud really creeps, and my throat wasn't really bad until Saturday or so. Yom Kippur this coming weekend is still up in the air. For once I am kind of hoping I can't sing--this would get me out of the interminable afternoon services, during which the choir is singing for the first time, and give me time to come home, relax, and make the veggie dish I am bringing to dinner. I hate to let the choir down though. And it would mean I'd have to sit the rest of the services out in the congregation (or be sick enough to stay home, which doesn't sound like much fun either).
If this is my biggest problem in life, I'm doing pretty well, huh?
