I’m sick, and it’s making me grumpy. Who wants to smile when they can barely move their facial muscles enough to breathe? Don’t pity me, don’t send flowers, it’s probably just a cold, but it’s the kind that makes you feel like Beth in Little Women. Everything else is fine. WIth this new job, I have precisely ONE full-time co-worker and ZERO children in my life. It’s a very good thing. I still haven’t let myself fully enjoy it, probably in part because I feel guilty for leaving so many children behind.
