Ugh. I don’t normally get Monday-feeling, but today it’s a definite, severe case.
I didn’t get up quite so early today as I normally do, but it was still reasonably early because I wanted to try to get some writing done before work. So much to do this week, and so much uncertainty. And this cold is just adding a whole new layer of existential angst to it.

Now I have that cottonmouth, sore-throat, all-night-spent-mouth-breathing stuffed-upness that doesn’t even have the decency to become a full-on fever. Not that I could afford to take time off sick this week anyway, unless I was straight-up dying. Stupid everything. For once, the home office works against me because I can’t claim consideration for my co-workers in not wanting to contaminate them.
