A Quick Grumble

I've got HFMD now. I should've realized it was inevitable; Tot would likely have not shown symptoms if I'd be immune. It's not so bad. Mostly the blisters are just painful to the touch, as if I've got splinters or something inside my skin. I was having some other trouble anyway, so now I just feel pretty diseased all over. It took Tot forever to finally go to sleep. Absurdist Lover went to bed hours ago. I should go to bed and get some sleep before Tot wakes up and wants to be brought to bed. I always do better if I get to sleep and get some sleep before he comes to bed. What a great start to the weekend.

I've been trying to be more mindful of what goes in and out of my head, so I won't vomit grumbles though it's really tempting (but will it make me feel better?). I wish to spend at least part of my day on things that make me feel better. The interesting thing about having to stop like this mid-quarter is that I've been thinking a lot about creative work. It's nice.

oh no! Good lord girl! When it rains, it pours, eh? I hope you get to feeling better soon.

We should skype or have a phone date soon. I think we've been saying that for about a year, so we should.

Oy, what a mess. I hope you got some sleep.

Holy mother. I definitely feel for you. We've all had a cold this week, and even that is annoying and draining. I can't imagine HFMD. Blisters? ouch! Poor you guys!!

I hope you get better ASAP! And don't stop thinking creatively in the process. Let the ideas flow!!
