Sunday evening around 6:30 I turned off the TV and picked up a book. Mosaic Woman went downstairs to make me dinner.
I had eaten a smaller lunch and was willing to take on a slightly larger dinner. Belly did generally OK though it made a few noises, being baffled by the presence of so much food for the first time in 96 hours.
So I made an assumption. If my digestive system had settled and my body had been fed... I was set to teach on Monday. So off I went.
Standing still proved to be less than fun as I tended to feel disoriented (how was I to know after 4 days in the bed). I was not feverish or achy. But I was not exactly sharp in mind. Students were informed of my energy level and how it related to my patience and responded kindly for the most part.
I am thinking about giving this wiped out body a day of rest tomorrow... not for bad TV. Well, maybe some. But there is a school gardening grant deadline looming, a seed order set to go but not made...
so I may take a day to rest and restore my spirit and lift some burdens from my shoulders at the same time. we will see.
