I just finished a rough week. Last Saturday Ferris was in the ER with an ear infection, and then I got a horrible cold that's lasted more than a week. Despite 2 (going on 3) sick days and a pharmaceutical shopping spree, my throat still feels like steak tartare. And today my eyes were diagnosed with a cold so I have to wear glasses and use special drops. My eyes! Yet somehow being home alone feels so indulgent. To be able to rest, and leave the house only for medicine and coffee.
