I'm sick with a tenacious cold, and am dragging around at home today.
I had taken the day off from work, yesterday, to try to get all of my Christmas tasks accomplished. This would be a foolish and stressful activity to undertake in good health, and I suspect I was a sorry sight as I tried and failed to get everything done.
Several sales people made comments like, "How are you? Surviving?" I have to imagine that this wasn't what they said to their other customers.
Christmas is going to be even more low-key than I had anticipated. I really don't mind, but I suspect Robb is secretly disappointed. I know he wishes he could pick up the slack for me, but that isn't possible right now.
