I guess feeling exhausted for the last couple of days was a precursor to the Lowly germ bugs invading my system. After a good, but early work morning, a gradual progression began: the headache came again, then soar throat, then feeling achy.
I'd been free of getting ill all autumn and winter. In fact, it's been quite a while since I'd gotten sick. Luckily yesterday I was able to leave work early, take some Nyquil and get some sleep. Unfortunately, after gobbling up vitamin C since Thursday morning, I've been overcome by the Lowly bugs nonetheless. Guess they started making their stealthy march to overtake my immune system before I realized it. Those sneaky little devils!
Such a busy weekend scheduled too. No matter what, I'm going to meet with my critique partner, even if I have to cancel everything else!
Either way, I hope the headaches fade enough so that I can catch up on reading you guys' posts this weekend.

Limacine - (adj.) sluglike
Despite all efforts and past successes in combatting the onslaught of bacterial infections, today LaRonda resigned. And she had planned to wear her new lace socks today. Instead, she hung out the white flag and, with limacine motions, trudged her way into bed and covered her head under thick blankets into soothing darkness.
