So I just woke up about an hour ago: Wow, that's more than 12 hours asleep. I would have preferred to have fallen asleep when I first tried last night so I would have awoken by noon at that rate, but mostly I would prefer not to feel so wrung out. I'm pondering how I'll be capable of teaching tomorrow night if I feel worse today than I did yesterday. Maybe I'll ask one of my students to lead the discussion, or all of them...? I don't think I can ask another teacher to teach this class: It's only in its third offering, no one else teaches it, it's in a town 30 miles away, and it's a night class.

Stupid cold/flu thing. I saw on the nationwide cold/flu measure that Kansas is in the red or "widespread" category: Everyone in the state is exposed to illness right now.

It sucks not to have someone to take care of me when I'm sick, but I guess I made that bed myself, didn't I?
