Sick and swamped
Last night I started feeling the start of a fever, and this time my echinacea tea didn't do anything to stave off whatever it is that I'm getting. Adding to my troubles is the imminent arrival of a very young and naive house guest, one who needs to learn that 48 hours isn't enough notice! I have so much to do around the house, I have a deadline for accepted manuscript, and I am feeling sick.
