After an intense workweek for me, a bout of illness ended the week more slowly than I’d prefer. We’re barely beginning our book work of the year, and it’s quickly halted. Here we are, recovering quietly with lots of TV time instead of raging through our weekend outdoors. In the next two days, fingers crossed, I’m hoping we recoup enough energy to charge through the next week – assuming the gastro thing dies here. Pretty please.
