Monday December 21 2015
Early in the morning the fever/flu takes its toll on me. I feel like death. Every ounce of my body is achy. There's a heaviness when I breathe deep. At one point I feel nauseous but I avoid the feeling. And there's nothing I can do about it but sleep it off. I switch sides every ten minutes. Eventually, I do feel better after I officially awaken around noon. It's still there but there's no way I'm teaching lessons today.
Cocktail Grapefruit. Yerba Mate Tea.
Lounging around in my bed and watching Jessica Jones (2015) on Netflix.
Meanwhile, Ana and AJ are downstairs in the kitchen making each other cakes, one chocolate and one grapefruit.
Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Strawberries, and Kefir.
Continuing to lie in the bed watching episode after episode of Jessica Jones. Sometimes, playing a few rounds of Unreal Tournament deathmatch. My body feels useless.
Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese.
AJ and Ana's cake creations came out splendidly.
Warming a can of No Chicken Noodle Soup with Zucchini and Carrots.
Ana comes into my room periodically just to talk.
Writing out Christmas cards to family and friends.
Sleep 3 a.m.
