I have no idea what happened to the last 3 days. Sleep deprivation will do that to a person. That, and chronic campaign watching...I think I am going to have to impose a news blackout on myself in order to get through the next 5 weeks.
Everyone keeps coughing. Me, too. So 2 nights ago I took some of Rachel's codeine cough syrup from January (of course I held on to it, I'm not stupid) and settled down in hopes of getting 3 hours of uninterrupted sleep. I gave some to Rachel, too. One hour later she's standing by my bed with a stomachache. Crap. Looks like the codeine doesn't agree with her, as the stomachache wore off at the same time the medicine did.
So I didn't sleep Friday night. All day Saturday I had to help run our townhouse cluster's grounds clean-up and barbeque. All day - don't these people realize I need to blog? Last night I collapsed into bed, but somehow ended up on the couch again. It worries me that I don't even remember why. Rachel is still coughing. And, no, I don't know where Larry is during all these nighttime disturbances. He sacrificed his entire Saturday to help with the clean-up and the barbeque, so I'm not about to bitch at him. Besides, he goes away today for his management retreat (again); and I want him to want to come back.
David's missing - at least, I haven't seen him around. Or heard him coughing. Maybe Larry knows where he is.
There was one bright spot in the past few days, but you have to go here to read about it. Because I'm lazy like that.
