I have the best timing

in musings

I started getting that pre-sick feeling last night, and woke up this morning with nasal congestion and no energy at all. I’ve been able to stay conscious since about 2:15 this afternoon, but before that I’d get up to go to the bathroom or get some food only to get right back in bed and fall asleep.

Of course I’m supposed to present my capstone tomorrow. If I can’t handle it, the next available time is May 11th. I want to be done!

Last night I was thinking, ok if I’m sick I’ll just stay home Monday and get work done and it’ll be ok. I didn’t count on exhaustion being the main symptom. I have gotten basically nothing done today. My major accomplishments have been taking a shower, cooking myself a quick dinner and then taking out the trash, and now I think I need a nap to recover.

I think if everything I had to do was like, all at once tomorrow, I could maybe be ok. Or if all I had was capstone in the evening I could sleep all day and then get up long enough to go. But I am supposed to grade I101 presentations from 1 pm until 4 pm tomorrow, and then my capstone presentation isn’t until 7:30 pm. I don’t know if I will be able to do both. And I hate to leave my I101 students to be graded by someone who hasn’t gotten to know their work all semester, but it may be that have to take care of myself first in this situation.

Ugh.
