1. Monday during my first class, I started feeling that annoying catch in my chest; by Tuesday, I was down with a really nasty cold. I've spent the rest of the week complaining, pushing liquids, trying to sleep, sneezing a lota, taking Sudafed, and hating my sinuses. This morning, I'm still stuffy but not as bad, so I have high hopes the creeping crud will have crept on by Monday.

2. Three weeks to go in the academic probation classes. They're great and challenging and rewarding and a huge gaping time suck. I'll be glad to get my brain back. Next spring, if I get to do this again, 1 section, maybe 2, not 3.

3. My hair is back to that magic length where I have to do very little but keep it washed and run a comb through it in the morning. No more Medusa hair in the morning. :) It also has a lot more wave at this length than it does when it's longer. And the cut I gave it last weekend looks good. I'm pleased.

4. I miss having red hair. I'm considering henna.

5. I'm glad it's Friday. My week is so front loaded that by the time I get to Friday, all I want to do is fall over. Luckily, all I have today is one student meeting, my seminar, and 1 50 minute class to teach, so there is some falling over in my future.

6. Work was better this week. Great, but not better. We had a little riot act reading and a little pointed point make about homework, and hopefully, the point has been made.

7. Payday. :)

8. Day 20 of no sugar in my morning coffee.



a. There is very little that feels more undignified for me than trying to teach and sneezing mid-sentence. Fortunately, they all get it, since most of them are sick too.

I love that hair length - it's so nice to wake up with decent hair :)

Is no sugar feeling normal yet?

Well, it's not no sugar overall, just in the morning. It's... allright. It's aided by the fact that I'm lazy in the morning, and the coffee process is greatly simplified now. Stumble out, mug, pour, drink. :)
