After typing it out, that title sounds maybe just a bit dramatic. But seriously: everything was going to plan up until Thursday afternoon, when I came down with a cold. Isn’t that how it usually works? Here’s how my virus-truncated week went:
Monday: Strength workout & 1-mile run. Plus meal planning and lots of errands and cleaning the house, since I didn’t have to go to campus today.
Tuesday: Strength workout & yoga class, plus a bunch of lab work and class work.
Wednesday: 3-mile run. PSA: clear your sidewalks so they do not become solid sheets of ice after melting and refreezing. Also made myself an overly ambitious schedule for doing research reading and writing. And read 2 journal articles, so at least I got off to a good start.
Thursday: And then the cold bugs attacked. I wrote a paper for class because it was due Friday. BUT…
Friday: I planned to edit it Friday and left the paper on my computer at school. Why yes, I do know about the cloud and flash drives….I just opted not to use them for some (very bad) reason. So I went to campus solely so I could submit the paper. Then I was done for the week.
Weekend: Finished the book I planned to read last weekend – at least sick days are good for that! (I’m trying Goodreads for tracking books currently…I don’t write reviews often, but if you want to see what I’m reading anyway, here’s my profile.) And I walked the dog and shoveled the porch because dogs and snow wait for no one.
And today I’m feeling back to normal, so I’m just going to shove everything I didn’t get done last week into this week. I’m sure it’s fine.
Preferred sick day entertainment: books or movies/TV shows?
