Downsizing

Coffee in the Austin skyline mug, no music (sound of child crying instead--no one is ever nice to her. She just had breakfast on the couch and watched Barbie in the Nutcracker but when she was told no more movies this morning she said no one is ever nice to her. Now she is pouring out her woes to her father. *sigh*). This cold is beating me down. I woke up three times in the night to the battle raging in my chest and sinuses. I think my body won by morning, but as the battlefield, I am pooped. And I still have to write the overview today. Ah, new sounds from upstairs: Someone is playing "A Dream is a Wish" on the Barbie violin she got for Christmas. Now she's Cinderella and I'm...

...back to work. I have 800 words to sum up 8719. Maybe if I just take every tenth word...

Sometimes it's tough being a princess ... ask me how I know. :)

Hope you and yours are healthier in the New Year.

Yikes...I feel a cold coming on, so I slept for 12 hours. I think it helped.

Perhaps you should take your battlefield to the doctor, so he can add diarrhea and nausea to your list of symptoms by giving you antibiotics?
