After a delightful Christmas, which I'll elaborate on later, I followed up with two of my annual holiday traditions - car repairs and illness!
I was planning on returning home today, but I came down with a nasty chest cold two days ago that's been a beast to shake. I'm lucky enough, though, to be in a place with nice people who bring me juice and cough syrup and who don't mind a houseguest who sleeps all the time.
I also appreciate the timing of this - a lost voice and a wracking cough are not going to be options once school starts again.
Happy New Year!
