I am home. And I need a vacation.

Misc - paper butterflies
Soooooo. I finally got home tonight. After Starfest ended in Denver, I took pills and went to bed at 9 freaking PM Sunday night, because I had to get up at 3 frakking AM Monday morning in order to catch the airport shuttle at 3:30 AM to get on a flight to Minneapolis at 6:30 AM. And then I immediately got on another flight to Tampa where I just spent 3 days for work. Yeaaaaaaah. That seemed like a good idea when I booked the ticket; I now think I must have been on very, very, very bad crack when I did it.

And I had been very happy that my cold seemed to be improving the last couple of days, but I've felt like crap today. About 90 minutes ago, I realized that I should probably be concerned over the fact that it's 73 degrees out but yet I'm shivering. So I took my temperature and it's 100.6. WTF? Hopefully I'm just worn out from the travel, and not getting sick again. The problem is, though, that I have two pages written up about the con and I wanted to write a little bit more. And I had a couple of other things I was inspired to write on last night. But my eyes are burning and my head aches and I want to go to bed.

I did manage to make it through my flist, which was insanely long. I'd read a few posts over the weekend, but I had 9 pages of new entries, at 25 entries per page. I feel bad, but I only replied to a few posts, just because otherwise, I'd be replying till midnight. I got tagged for a couple of fun memes that I want to do, but...after I get a bit of rest. 

I hope you all are having a good week!  I am going to haul the laptop upstairs and try to accomplish something before I totally drift off to sleep.

Sickness plus air travel plus work sounds hellish. :O

Sendhil sez, take it easy.

Mmmmmm. Now I want to go back to my bunk even more strongly...

There is no way in hell that that much travel is good for your immune system. I'd say get some rest, but I'm sure you're at work and catching up on everything that backed up while you were out.

Drink lots of green or white tea and then go to bed early tonight!!

I went to bed around 10:30 and slept till 8, so I'm feeling a lot better today, though I still ahve this stupid fever. Green tea sounds very good, though. I wish I'd brought some sencha to work, now. :0)

33 hours from now, the weekend will start for me, and I can relax then. Well, I probably won't REST, because everything has finally started coming up in the yard, so I'm going to be out raking leaves off the perennial beds and moving a couple of shrubs. But that's relaxing work!

That's not relaxing work! It's work. You need a coma. :-)

Hee! I probably do need a coma. I do like gardening, though, and I was very nervous about whether the bulbs I'd planted last year would come up, and whether the cherry tree and lilacs I planted would make it through the winter (we had a horrifically hot and dry summer and even if you water them well, it's still extremely stressful on them). When I got home yesterday, I did take a quick trip around the yard to see if stuff was coming back - most of the daffodils are coming up, two of the iris clumps are coming up, and the lilacs and cherry tree are covered in buds and don't look like they've got any dead branches! So despite feeling like crap, that made me happy.

Of course, I just found out there's a chance of snow this weekend. Oy, Minnesota... (Actually, the rule of thumb around here is that you don't plant any annuals till Mother's Day, and if possible, wait till Memorial Day. Because of the risk of late frost.)

I was about to say YAY SPRING! But then I got to the end. Snow. Oy indeed.

Glad all the flowers and trees seem to be doing well!
